Executive Outplacement

Career transition designed to support the complex requirements of senior leaders and develop capabilities for leaders to succeed.

Select section...

Uniquely positioned to guide senior leaders through career transition, we provide innovative tools and dedicated consultants for a bespoke executive outplacement service.

Over the last 35+ years, Right Management has delivered outplacement services to more than 3.5 million people, helping them transition into new roles, careers and opportunities. Right Management’s Executive Outplacement Solution provides individuals with opportunities to gain clarity around their next career move through reflection of their own personality, by using multiple assessment tools and exploration of alternative career opportunities elaborated in a deeper consulting conversation.

For some, executive transition means achieving that next step on the career ladder, moving into a more complex or larger role, an increase in salary and overall benefits package within a bigger organisation. For others, executive transition is about consolidating their existing skills into a considered career move, gaining more experience in a particular specialism, geography, or building on their expertise to a greater depth.

A growing number of senior leaders opt to explore a different executive outplacement path altogether. Some look to transfer their extensive leadership experience to a portfolio career, including a mix of executive and non-executive roles for commercial business ventures and charitable organisations. Others choose to explore consulting opportunities or start new companies. From setting up new charities to devising acquisition strategies as a new entrant in the technology sector, whilst the ambitions of the leaders we work with are diverse, our focus on working together to achieve the very best career transition outcome is steadfast.

A Modern View on Developing and Measuring Leadership Effectiveness

Author: Shirley Mayton, PhD, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, Managing Consultant, Talent Management, Right Management

Excerpt from this post:

"In envisioning the future of leadership, we must make a quantum leap from current thinking about what constituted effective leadership and how it’s measured, into a modern and slightly irreverent view. Let’s begin with the end in mind - outcomes.”



Most Likely to Lead: Start investing in the right people. Predicting, developing and measuring leadership effectiveness in the Human Age.

Our P3 Leader Model makes our executive outplacement programme different. We recognise leaders today need to have and demonstrate both the traits and capabilities to overcome today's dynamic and uncertain challenges.

Existing methods of identifying and developing leaders are not working as they should. The world of work is changing significantly, creating a gap between traditional ideas of leadership effectiveness and what it actually takes to drive business performance in the Human Age - a new and challenging business environment where competitive advantage is increasingly transient.

Our approach differs from existing models in three key ways: outcomes are defined not only in financial terms but also in metrics that measure the impact on human motivation; inherent enablers are aligned to the challenge of leading in times of certain uncertainty; and, coachable capabilities are narrowed to those that matter most to deliver the desired outcomes.
