Leadership Solutions

Globalization. Convergence. Disruption. The demands on leadership have never been greater. This is why companies today want more than a consultant; they want to co-create customized leadership solutions in true partnership with trusted, long-term advisors.

At Egon Zehnder, we operate as one unified team, with expertise across industries, sectors, and geographies. With more than 450 consultants globally, we partner with you to solve your most important leadership challenges. These solutions include executive and CEO search; board advisory; CEO succession; and individual, team, and organizational assessment to unlock potential at all levels. We focus on your specific leadership needs, whether facing disruption, building a culture of innovation, managing talent in mergers and acquisitions, expanding globally, driving growth, or supporting a generational shift in a family business. 

We have extensive expertise working closely with operating partners, CEOs, and governing boards of many of the world’s most successful companies. We provide the leadership solutions that will ensure your organization’s success — for today and for the future.

In Executive Search, we have assisted in the appointment of more than 1,200 CEOs in the past five years, advising boards through a robust and future-oriented process. Our global Board Practice, with a unique reach and deep network, has performed more than 3,600 assignments and placements in the past five years alone. And our Executive Assessment and Development team has partnered with more than 30 percent of the world’s top 1,000 organizations, assessing more than 10,000 executives over the past three years.

Whether we are identifying, assessing, or developing your organization’s leadership, 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 iQ, our “Innovation Quotient” approach, which helps organizations build a culture of successful innovation. We have also partnered with Mobius Executive Leadership to create our acclaimed invitation-only Executive Breakthrough Program — a unique and powerful approach to developing your most senior leaders.
