Executive Development and Leadership Consulting

Aspen’s CEO and Executive Development services enable client CEOs to build and develop leadership teams that are primed for hyper-growth or game-changing transformation: a refreshing, pragmatic, outcome-driven and agile approach, grounded in 37 years’ experience supporting multiple business models within high-growth innovation sectors.

Our portfolio of services is focused on de-risking investment, accelerating transformation and increasing competitive advantage, equipping CEOs to build cohesive Executive Teams who can capitalize on market opportunity and maximize ARR and growth.

Services include:

  • CEO strategic thinking partnerships, CEO coaching, and first-time CEO mentoring
  • A comprehensive range of Executive Leader and Executive Team Assessments which combine the power of industry leading psychometric and 360 tools, such as Hogan®, The Predictive Index® and The Leadership Versatility Index®, with Aspen’s decades of industry expertise
  • Executive coaching and mentoring
  • Succession Planning and Due Diligence Services

We develop a deep understanding of each client’s business, strategic goals and competitive market, facilitating a close partnership with boards, investors, founders and CEOs. Our clients create outcome-driven executive leadership strategies that maximise customer and shareholder value by achieving the multiplier effect.

Equally applicable for VC-backed businesses in scale-up mode,  mid-sized or larger PE-backed SaaS companies, through to publicly listed tech market leaders driving transformation – or to support PE and VC strategic investment decisions and senior appointments – we provide objective appraisal of the leadership infrastructure, performance, behaviour, culture and potential.

An essential element of our approach to CEO and Executive Development is to centre all analysis around the core objectives of achieving business strategy and maximising investor value. Looking beyond some of the standard, non-contextualised ‘personality/leadership profile’ type analysis, we aim instead to provide actionable insight into the current capabilities of leaders, the leadership dynamic and the overall organisational structure to deliver on strategic objectives. In so doing, we clearly identify any gaps and risks, and help clients develop leadership programmes that bridge these gaps, providing a leadership platform fully equipped for the journey ahead.

Leaders and Leadership teams embarking on a development programme with Aspen gain access to the Aspen Advisory Board, a unique cadre of proven industry thought leaders whose experience spans Board, CEO and C-suite Leadership across all functions.  The Board enables clients to tap into a confidential resource of unmatched experience, spanning wide-ranging topics such as category creation, On-Premise to Cloud transformation, global scale-up, penetrating new global markets, driving best-practice Customer Success, optimizing performance at IPO, ‘Scale to Sale’, Building to Culture, achieving Thought leader brands, and many more.

Aspen is unique in creating an intimate, inspiring environment for discussion of strategic direction and personal development that has real and significant impact.
