Succession Strength’s leadership advisory is about a bias towards action and the willingness to tell clients what we think is needed. Our operational experience informs our ability to act decisively. Clients select us for our expertise and ability to create and deliver practical solutions to their unique problems.

Mitigating threats to long term continuity.

The natural lifecycle of a business presents unique opportunities for growth during one generation of ownership and during a transition to a new generation of leadership. We identify threats resulting from planned and unplanned changes and prioritize the key areas of improvement that will positively impact a company’s resilience and long term continuity.


Our team partners with companies facing continuity and succession challenges, and implements identified improvements to insufficient business continuity preparation, changes in leadership and ineffective communication and governance. We leverage our proven frameworks to evaluate every aspect of the business and provide thorough planning and support during implementation to ensure a positive impact.

Clients call us for Consultative or Interim Management guidance when:


An organization can have a leadership gap for any number of reasons. Before and during times of transition and uncertainty, we serve as interim leaders, working alongside the management team to provide stability, needed guidance and direction.

Focused Solutions

There are times when current management needs additional guidance to help highlight and mitigate risk to the business’ continuity stemming from a planned or unplanned event. We identify business continuity and succession risks and quickly implement the necessary mitigative action. Our team also has the experience, know-how and tools to lead you through the extensive transformation that results from an ownership change.

Cohesive Alignment

Our disciplined approach to interim management enables us to effect cultural change and align values and conflicting interests. By understanding your objectives and key drivers, we can prioritize our efforts, implement effective processes and facilitate buy-in across your organization. At the end of our tenure, your management team will be stronger, more cohesive and firmly on the path to success.

Our team is standing by to guide you in planning for tomorrow without sacrificing today.
