Due Diligence Assessments

Most would agree that the key to a successful acquisition lies in the leadership team’s ability to execute on the going-forward vision and strategy.  At Cornerstone our leadership team assessment helps acquiring companies to identify and maximize the potential of each key manager, aligning their skills, values and behaviors with the right roles and responsibilities. Our assessments help to add clarity and answer questions about people, how and where they perform best, and how they will function as a team. The information provided by our assessments allow you to build stronger leadership teams, and transition new organizations quicker and more successfully. Our assessments provide:

  • Unique insights about key managers and their fit for various roles within the organization.
  • Potential red flags that may create individual or team performance issues.
  • Insights as to how leaders of acquired companies align culturally.
  • Opportunities to better leverage underutilized talent.
  • Insights into dysfunctional relationships that impede team performance.
