How to Build Strong Executive Relationships 
Bright Arrow Blog

Great leadership teams are more than the sum of their parts. This is because they work seamlessly as a unit. Senior executives trust each other. They generally get along, but they also have the tools and emotional intelligence to work through differences. Underpinning this are individual executive relationships.  Leadership teams will fail when executives are misaligned, in conflict with or estranged from each other. In fact, Deloitte research identified relationship-building as perhaps the most important trait for executives transitioning into a new role. The good news is that you don’t ..read more

Unhealthy conflict between senior executives is troubling because it can spread widely, affecting the relationships of entire teams and functions. And with 71% of CEOs surveyed by Heidrick & Struggles connecting culture to financial perfor ..read more

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) are transformative opportunities that can unlock growth and innovation — but they’re also stressful and create uncertainty. At every level of the company, the news of M&A leaves people wondering what their future holds. The executive team is no exception, even when they’re the acquirer.

What’s less recognized is the toll M&A takes on CEOs and their leadership teams, who can easily buckle under the stress and lose effectiveness, tru ..read more

Bright Arrow Blog
by Tegan Trovato
1M ago
Every CEO needs a strong leadership team, but getting talented people into the same room is only the first step. Your top executives must act as a team, rather than as a group of autonomous functional leaders. To do this, they need the right strategy and purpose — and they need to know how to execute both. Why do companies struggle with this, even at the highest levels? One reason is that these words can be fuzzy without context. Another reason is that too many companies view strategy sessions and purpose statements as an exercise or a document to be created and filed away. But purpose and str ..read more

In the landscape of executive team coaching, the significance of tailoring each engagement to the unique attributes of a team cannot be emphasized enough.
