Executive Strategic Advisory

As C-Suite executive face challenging corporate and professional goals, there are times when they want inspiration and support to clarify, prioritize and implement their strategies.  This can be particularly critical when the executive is moving into a new role or the organization is facing radical change.

Mobilis’ strategic advice is structured to have a direct impact on the leader’s business and her performance and is delivered by seasoned professionals with the business experience to ensure meaningful interactions.

WHAT WE DO

Our work with senior executives is focused on the business. 

The cornerstone of our engagement with the executive is the development and active pursuit of a formal Leadership Plan that specifies the key areas of focus for the ensuing nine to eighteen months.

To create the Leadership Plan, we delve into the business context to identify the top three to four business priorities related to achieving critical business objectives.  We serve as the amanuensis of the Plan, which lays out “what success will look like,” defines specific objectives and measures of success, and spells out required actions and a related timetable.

  • We also work through the behaviours that the leader needs to adopt in the changing context, the skills that he or she needs to develop and draw on, how best to leverage internal and external resources (including the Board), and how to best allocate their time.

  • We provide the client with tools and processes to build their profile and an aligned team. We help the individual identify trusted sources of support and plan interactions with other members of the executive team, the board and other key stakeholders.

 

TYPICAL AREAS OF FOCUS:  BUSINESS, PEOPLE AND BEHAVIORAL ISSUES CARRY EQUAL WEIGHT

Approaches and tools to assess the senior team and to build a high-functioning, aligned organization: CEOs and leaders of business units and functions must not only have clear strategies and priorities, but must also ensure that their direct reports are fully on board with the strategy and are able to execute it.

 

Other relationships that the leader needs to develop:  Developing and sustaining relationships with key members of the Board is critical, but important links with key customers, regulators or suppliers also require reconsideration and cultivation.

 

CEO-specific skills: Governance, finance, communications capabilities, talent management or investor/media relations may be among the areas in which the CEO will need to invest.

Shifts in leadership style and behaviours:  Behaviours that led to success earlier on may need to evolve markedly.

 

Time management and personal challenges:  It is imperative that the leader regularly re-thinks how to spend his or her time and considers how best to balance the personal and family pressures that come with the job.

We bring the perspective and judgment that come from years of experience working with senior executives of organizations of all sizes, across a broad range of sectors, private, public and not-for-profit.  We are singularly focused on helping ensure that our clients are successful in achieving their business goals. Our approach also ensures that a direct link is made between the outcomes of work and pre-agreed metrics, enabling clients to assess the degree to which the work has in fact paid off.
