Leadership Assessment & Development

How effective are your leaders?

Are your leaders in line with your vision for your business … and does your executive team know where they can improve?

Successful organizations are those that have the right leaders, teams that work effectively, and an organizational culture aligned with the business’s strategy.

An organization's leadership effectiveness impacts directly the organization’s results, especially in volatile and uncertain contexts.

We support our clients with the proper assessment of their executive teams and we help to identify leadership growth and potential in the organization. In addition, we provide the organization with a deep understanding of available talent and areas of improvement for a successful implementation strategy.

Executive assessment

We assess leadership skills, to identify both growth and potential. This means that we provide the organization with a complete understanding of competencies, potential, and possible areas for development.
Our focus includes the use of multiple methods that evaluate an individual’s ability to perform efficiently, show adaptability and make an impact on his/her role. The methodology is personalized and based on each organization’s needs.

Talent Mapping & Succession Planning

Ensuring sustainable organizational growth is key to moving forward with business cycles. We evaluate leaders as well as management teams and map the organization. In the process we identify leadership potential, and build strategic succession plans, to identify and retain talent in key roles. We also look at the effectiveness of the teams and generate key information to design development plans for succession.

Team Leadership & Development

Organizations that focus on developing high-performing teams are more successful when it comes to showing results.
We identify and measure factors that impact a team's effectiveness, including leadership styles and team dynamics. We assess leaders individually to improve the team’s performance and alignment with the business purpose and future direction.

Leadership Advisory

Our consultants act as strategic advisors for managerial committees, general managers, and business leaders, making Stanton Chase an extension of their organizations. We build relationships based on trust and we accompany our clients by supporting the strategic development objectives of their organization.

Stanton Chase is uniquely positioned to help you make the best decisions.
Change & Culture Transformation

We support clients in leadership and culture development to ensure the success of strategic transformations, like in the following digital customer centricity and restructuring programs.

An organization’s culture has an impact on transformation programs and for these initiatives to be successful we need to look at culture. Therefore, understanding the organization’s cultural context and leadership groups is key for implementing best practices that support the implementation of the change strategy.

In an alliance with Hofstade Insights, we perform organizational culture assessment by using a 40-year-based model in culture research, which allows comparing a company’s results with over 5,000 company benchmarks from around the globe.

The organizational cultural assessment makes it possible to visualize existing practices at the company and how they align with the strategy, as well as give priority to change initiatives, evaluate how leadership changes are made, and where/how they need intervention.

Change, M&A
and Restructuring

We support companies that are in process of transformation and change, mergers and acquisitions or restructuring, addressing Organizational Culture as a management tool that improves the organizational effectiveness.


We support companies in identifying the necessary talent to accompany and develop a clear digital strategy. We are present throughout the transformation, identifying and leveraging the cultural changes that are required in the implementation of the digital strategy.

Customer Centric

We support companies in their customer centric transformation processes, which allows not only to improve results but also to increase their levels of trust and reputation. In alliance with a strategy consultancy, we advise on all areas of a client-oriented strategy: structure, processes, tools, leadership and culture.

Executive Coaching

We have an executive coaching practice at Stanton Chase that specializes in helping high-potential executives become much more effective leaders. Our coaches use a customized, results-oriented framework to engage in a learning dialogue. This helps executives improve performance, achieve shorter-term goals and sustain behavioral change while maximizing their personal potential.

Coaching can be particularly useful in guiding newly appointed executives or internal talent identified as having high potential in making the transition into their new roles. We achieved this by helping individuals develop personal insights and understanding of the organization. We accompany the individual with the challenges they are about to experience in their promotion or when joining the organization. Individuals learn to flex a style to suit the context and develop leadership capabilities that build on their strengths. This enhances executive commitment and confidence, thereby contributing to engagement and retention.

Coaches are selected based on their real-world business experience, which ensures enhanced business performance is the primary focus of all coaching processes, to the measurable benefit of the client organization. All our coaches are trained and accredited individuals and have a minimum of 500 hours of executive coaching experience. The latest scientific research into executive coaching, drives the development of all practice and coaching tools, ensuring that can we deliver a measurable impact.
