Leadership Risk should be on your Risk Committee agenda.

Most annual reports describe the central role that people play in making the company a success. However, very few Risk Committees spend the same amount of time considering their people risk. Why is that?

Benchmark your leadership team

Whether it is a lack of willingness from existing leaders to advocate those who might ultimately take their roles, complacency about the current team or market, or more likely a lack of reliable data to present to the Committee, this is a fundamental problem that Armstrong Craven are helping CHROs to overcome.

Recent global shocks have highlighted the need for new skills in leadership. This includes new skills being sought in the Boardroom as digitisation has impacted sectors in new ways, an ever-increasing focus on improving representation, and replacing leaders whose management styles have been shown to be outdated and incompatible with hybrid working.

Almost every organisation now needs to have different people in their leadership team, with new skills and the ability to react to and navigate through change.

We help people leaders pinpoint those senior roles most at risk, and work with them to identify and socialise the talent that will help them manage any upcoming leadership changes smoothly, leaving them with an enhanced, not weakened executive team.
