Leadership Stage Executive Dream Career Consultants' executive transition management program starts with face-to-face meetings to develop recommendations for meeting each executive's individual goals. We also conduct a dream career and marketability assessment and help develop a personal marketing plan. Finally, we help launch a dream career search and provide advice on managing each executive's dream career search campaign.

We do not view the executives as a number or statistic. Each one is an individual with different needs and career aspirations. The work we do with each senior level executive is carefully tailored to the individual and is not an off-the-shelf program. And, we really care about the outcome. We maintain liaison with the client organization while insuring the confidentiality of the counseling relationship with thesenior level executive candidate. We strive for maximum return to both the individual and the corporate client.

    * Note: If an active retirement option is selected, Phases II and III are modified accordingly.
