[Talent Development Strategies]

“The task of leadership is to get their people from where they are to where they have not been.” -Henry Kissinger

AE firms continuously struggle to attract and retain the best talent and significantly underestimate the true cost of turnover and lost opportunities. Design firms have traditionally hired reactively to satisfy near-term project workflows. To disrupt this treadmill of diminishing returns, firms need to focus on identifying the new types of talent that will help them compete in the future and on cultivating the sources of those novel talents.

Reaching Business Leadership Potential In a Time of Change

In the life of every firm, there is a need to pass on its legacy and its ownership.
Greenway approaches transition planning from a perspective of stewardship and
resiliency—of the culture, the staff, and clients—as well as from financial considerations.

We work with a firm’s current and future owners to evaluate alternatives and tradeoffs, define financial strategies, implement, change, and strengthen ongoing leadershipdevelopment.

Today’s AE leaders are reevaluating their firm’s transition frameworks and ownership agreements in response to new practice challenges. The inherent complexity of ownership transitions are compounded by the evolving expectations and divergent generational perspectives regarding the financial purpose of the firm.

Owners are increasingly challenged to rebalance the allocation of resources between the competing demands of funding firm growth, providing competitive current compensation and benefits, and accumulating long term wealth or retirement assets.
