Extreme Personal Leadership®
At XCEO, Inc., we believe individual leadership is the driving force for inspiring creativity and ultimately maximizing intellectual capacity. We provide individual and corporate development in the principles of Extreme Personal Leadership®. We call this X-Leadership and it is the touchstone of our company.
In today's globally competitive world, intellectual property is a key indicator of long term success. Corporations and individuals are seeking knowledge-intensive solutions to sustain a competitive advantage. At XCEO, Inc. we offer Professional Mentoring and Personal Leadership Development programs, as well as Corporate Governance and Board Leadership Development programs, for high-aspiration individuals and forward-looking corporations.
Our Board Succession process is tailored for each client with a core set of XCEO operating and consulting principles serving as the foundation. Our mission is simple: to provide our clients with the best prepared and qualified candidates. We seek high-achieving individuals who have a passion for personal leadership and a serious desire to serve shareholders through their Board service.
We use contemporary tools to determine the right mix of skills, experiences, and attributes. Then we effectively vet highly-qualified and talented directors. Once the Board has selected a candidate, we on-board that director so that he or she is contributing at a faster pace than they would otherwise. With XCEO as your partner, this usually disruptive process will move quickly, smoothly, and with the least inconvenience to the Board.
Our Board Succession efforts differ from our competitors' traditional view of recruiting because we focus on: BASEdna®: Helping the board understand the skills and experiences that are currently represented by the board and identifying those additional skills and experiences the board would like to have. This process is supported by our thorough, yet easy to use, Board Skills, Experiences, and Attributes (BASEdna®) Analysis. Launched by the Chairman or the Corporate Governance Chairman, this detailed analysis facilitates the board's ability to begin the process of identifying the best candidate(s).
Through our Professional Mentoring and Personal Leadership programs, we assist individuals in developing personal career and development plans to achieve senior executive-level positions. We also support corporations that recognize the need for a broad array of development options for their high-potential employees being groomed for senior leadership responsibilities.
As part of XCEO, Inc.'s pursuit of Enlightened Corporate Governance®, we have created the Enlightened Corporate Governance® Board Performance Evaluation Program to support Boards and Directors in their pursuit of excellence. Through our program, we are leading the movement past compliance, toward principled action which maximizes shareholder value. We have designed a comprehensive set of individual and Board evaluation exercises that provide an exceptional opportunity for directors to take their Boards to a whole new level of effectiveness. This is the foundation for our concept of "CONSTRUCTIVE ANALYTICAL INTROSPECTION™"
