Competition is stiffer at your level. The stakes are higher. Slip-ups or missteps are costlier and more visible. You’re under scrutiny by the C-suite, and you know it.
Dr. Fish can help you develop higher level leadership behaviors and deal with the complex dynamics that often characterize top-tier executive playing fields.
Using validated assessments, Dr. Fish can help you expand your awareness beyond how you see yourself to include how peers and the senior leaders who will decide your career path—the CEO, the executive board and even your competitors for top positions—see you. With that information in hand, Dr. Fish can help you develop advanced competencies in a neutral, confidential and supportive environment.

Dr. Fish can assess the drivers behind the gridlock and work with key executives to challenge their thinking and to dismantle the barriers—both personal and organizational—to progress.
