Leadership for a Better World

Inspiring leaders to navigate complex questions with human answers

Leading in today’s dynamic world poses more questions and unknowns with higher stakes than ever before. We can help you get – and stay – ready to take on the leadership challenges you face.

With over 525 consultants, working in 63 offices and 37 countries, we partner with the world’s greatest leaders to help them succeed personally and professionally. We collaborate seamlessly across geographies, industries, and functions, bringing the full power of the Firm to you.


Our Solutions

Whether we are identifying, assessing, or developing your organization’s leaders, we have proprietary tools to support your goals. These include our Potential Model, which helps clients understand how to identify and unlock their executives’ full capabilities; our Transformative Leadership Framework, a blueprint for leaders to trigger disruptive change; and our Culture Profile, which helps organizations build a culture of successful innovation. We also partner with Mobius Executive Leadership to create our acclaimed invitation-only Executive Breakthrough Program — a unique and powerful approach to developing your most senior leaders, as well as our Voyager Leadership Development Program, an in-house, intensive executive leadership program tailored for your organization, and Customized Leadership Immersion, an exclusive program for CEOs to gain greater levels of self-awareness when facing professional crossroads.

The right mix of talent, skills, and perspectives in the boardroom can mean the difference between value creation and value stagnation. At Egon Zehnder, we have partnered with boards for over 50 years as they adapt to meet the challenges of the complex stakeholders they serve.

With more than 55 years of experience advising clients on chief executive leadership, we know that the selection of a CEO is the midpoint of a process, not the end. That’s why we partner with our clients to deliver a comprehensive and effective CEO transition, succession, and onboarding protocol.
