Tightening of government budgets and a greater emphasis on measurable results have forced intergovernmental organizations to rethink everything from board structure to business models, which are centered increasingly around public-private partnerships. But making these alliances work requires mutual understanding, as well as a leadership team with deep experience creating strategies that are viable and sustainable. Today’s intergovernmental leader needs a new set of competencies and skills.
The Egon Zehnder Intergovernmental and Multilateral Organizations Practice helps the boards and chief executives of these groups find the leadership solutions they need in this new environment. Our global reach and consultants with a working background in the sector mean that we can help search committees identify and recruit chief executives and build top leadership teams. We also help boards evaluate their performance and recruit directors whose networks and experience can provide an important bridge to the private sector.
