New to the C-Suite

ANCHOR C-Leadership

The C-level programme for your effective onboarding after nomination.

By invitation only

The partnership for your success

Focus on what matters most: yourself.

As a senior executive, you know your business. But with your leap into the C-suite, you will face new  challenges. You have to take a clear position within the top team, and build trusting relationships with your C-level peers. You have to manage your unit for results, and to put the company’s long-term success first. You have to manage stakeholders‘ requests productively, and stay the course.

And yet, managing this “outer arena” is only one dimension of your challenge. Managing your “inner arena” is an even more demanding task. You will experience your new environment as highly competitive and pressurised. You will need to redefine yourself as a leader: your previous success models will not do at the top.

Personal growth and sustainable success as a C-suite leader demands the courage to move from compulsion to choice. ANCHOR supports you in this crucial transition period by focusing on what’s most important: yourself. Extreme outer complexity calls for the utmost inner clarity: a deeper understanding of your role, your contribution to success, your strengths and areas of growth – and at the same time, you have to cope honestly with your doubts or even insecurities.
