Many executive search firms offer dedicated board advisory services. Board advisors are retained by clients to provide an array of board services – from board search and assessment to strategic advising – that improve board effectiveness and optimize performance.
Board advisors implement a client-centered process to each board assignment. They are committed to enhancing board effectiveness and employ highly sophisticated methodologies including competency-based interviewing, 360 degree referencing and due diligence processes that may be augmented by psychometric testing and broader assessments.
Board advisors begin an assignment by understanding a board’s industry, business strategy, and unique needs. Effective board leadership and alignment is critical to a company’s success. Board advisors are uniquely positioned to leverage their expertise and resources to navigate today's boards of directors to success.
