A Bespoke Approach to
Integrating New Leaders icon

New Leader Acceleration kicks off before the leader begins their journey in a new role and stays with them throughout their orientation and onboarding time frame.
Leveraging the Verity Leadership AssessmentSM – the only assessment built specifically for professional services leadership – we assess and understand the unique behaviors inherent to the new leader.
We partner closely with internal stakeholders to understand specific expectations and cultural considerations for the role. We connect this context with the leadership DNA of the new leader, highlighting specific risk mitigation and performance acceleration insights.
Informed by data, we activate the interlock between the new leader and the stakeholder team, increasing the direct support for the leader and decreasing the amount of time required from the stakeholder group to successfully ramp.
Straightforward process:
  • New leader takes Verity Leadership Assessment
  • 1:1 debrief session with leader and Kinavic Leadership Acceleration advisor
  • Readout with stakeholder group
  • Regular 1:1 sessions with new leader through ramp
  • Regular sessions with internal advocacy team
  • Final stakeholder readout meeting and handoff to internal talent partners
