PRACTICAL AND BUSINESS ORIENTED
Our approach is practical, business-oriented, and tailored to the role, opportunities and challenges of the individual or team. We are non-directive; we don’t tell leaders what to do and we don’t do it for them. But the questions we ask aren’t academic or theoretical. They are grounded in strategy, execution and results, and designed to help clients meet and surpass the demanding expectations that are hard-wired in senior roles.
MENTORING WITH AN OPERATOR’S LENS
Experienced in business and trained in the Merryck methodology, our mentors offer an unparalleled skill set that combines empathy, the courage to push clients to new thinking, and a steady hand to advise them on how best to achieve their goals. We help leaders discover new insights, remove blind spots, and generate actionable outcomes for the business.
Our unique approach to leadership development helps ensure that companies are getting the right Leadership Return On Strategy. Merryck’s work creates the greatest value at key pivot points in the evolution of a business, an individual leader’s career or a leadership team’s development. As enterprises transform, we have become integral partners in helping rapidly instill a new leadership “muscle-memory” in the high potential leaders of tomorrow.
"The fact that it was a long-term relationship was important because my situation evolved over time. We started working on some fundamentals that are more situation-agnostic, but then as we went through this evolution of opportunities that I needed to consider, [my mentor] was really good. Not only as a listener and helping me make objective decisions, but then to make actual changes in how I needed to show up in those different roles as an operator or a business leader, too."
“To have the help and support of a mentor who has ‘been there and done that’ is critical and in that respect, [my mentor] was the perfect mentoring partner for me”
"I know there are a limiting number of jobs for me, and I know what I need to do to be ready for these—a full and complete adjustment to manager and “leader of people” versus the lone wolf. It is clear, and I feel like I have a plan, the tools and a partner to get there."
