Planning New Futures For Senior Executives

When senior executives are given leave of their organization, part of the exit package may be standard severance and outplacement support as part of their compensation package. This type of support is often helpful when the goal is to assist in finding another role similar to the one being vacated.

Often, this support will be less effective for those who have left senior roles unexpectedly. It will be especially difficult if they are of an age when the probability of finding a similar role elsewhere may not be practical or deemed appropriate. Helping an individual come to terms with the shock of departure, as well as the damage to self-esteem, requires a special approach in an effort to help them rebuild their future.

Our Approach

Senior executives who are within a few years of average retirement age, may find it helpful to have short term one-to-one support that ICG CONSULTING has expertise in providing. We are able to help executives come to terms with accepting their departure and prepare them for a future, which may be considerably different from the one they just left. Traditional outplacement is inclined to concentrate on the practicalities of looking for another job. We focus on the emotional fallout the individual may experience at this crucial period of time. We can help them think through future opportunities and options to assist with finding a positive way to move forward.


Planning and assisting senior executives involves mentoring and coaching programs to help them find a new future and are based on scheduled meetings over a three to six month period of time.
