What We Do

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.

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.
