Our Approach

Helping clients globally with leadership transitions in a changing world

We have a proven leadership advisory approach to executive succession, leadership search and assessment, as well as organizational performance, culture, transformation and diversity. Our groundbreaking competency and assessment framework, Leadership Span, powers Russell Reynolds Associates’ leadership advisory work to help organizations achieve enhanced performance.

In today’s fast-paced and uncertain world, leaders face unprecedented challenges. They need to navigate through volatility while staying focused on strategy, performance and culture. To do this, they not only need to have a broad range of skills, they need to know when to use them. Our leadership advisory approach is designed to help organizations reduce the risk associated with selecting executives for leadership positions. Our unique framework, Leadership Span, helps increase the predictability of durable C-suite success. 

At Russell Reynolds, we:

  • Partner with you to identify your leadership needs, assess your leaders and help you find the best people for your organization
  • Bring relevant insights and learnings from across the globe, so you can be prepared for what is coming
  • Understand your culture and organization deeply so we can create tailored solutions that are just right for you
  • Help forward your diversity and inclusion objectives and work with you to create a diverse team, so you can gain the financial, cultural, and strategic benefits that come from it
  • Provide an array of Board Advisory Services, so your Boards can successfully navigate the increasing legal, regulatory, reputational and market scrutiny

We do this by:

  • Investing time in understanding your direction, strategy, culture and nuances of the Board and other C-suite stakeholders.
  • Fostering deep, long-term relationships with your team. This helps us uncover ‘issues behind the issues,’ allowing us to develop specific, actionable recommendations. We deliver capabilities in a range of areas, such as board and CEO performance, succession and recruitment; corporate governance; organizational and leadership culture, diversity and transformation; C-suite succession, search and assessment; and other specialty services.
  • Developing a leadership strategy that align with your business priorities and help you prepare for unexpected changes in your environment.
  • Creating a customized mandate that specifies the nature of the advisory assignment to enable you to navigate core people issues, plan for the future, and proactively address performance issues.
  • Working with you to implement the bespoke solution developed specifically for your unique needs.
