Outplacement

Mullin International's Individualized Approach to career transition is designed to accommodate the differing transition needs of executives at different organization levels. Thus, we provide distinct levels of services, although any service level may be delivered for any individual executive.

Recognizing that each candidate's situation and needs are inherently different, we begin each assignments with a thorough assessment of the candidate's needs -- career, lifestyle, financial - and jointly develop a process-oriented plan, the content of which is consistent with his/her clearly defined objectives. Then, we develop an action plan - and we provide specialized resources to him/her in each need area, organized in a practical and extremely flexible framework which has been tested and refined over a period of years in hundreds of top echelon situations. Finally, we co-manage the search itself while remaining non-intrusive. This detailed and comprehensive approach varies with each individual and differs according to level of service required and outcome desired.

 

Executive Coaching

As a consequence of undergoing the Mullin International One-On-One Executive Coaching Program, the executive can expect to better demonstrate the skills that have been internationally recognized as both the most honored of the leadership characteristics and those that bring out the “very best” from the people with whom they interact.

  WHEN IS EXECUTIVE COACHING NEEDED?

  Executives generally participate in one-on-one coaching for one or any of the following needs:

  • To prepare for a higher level within the organization which could require conceptual capabilities, broader communication skills, and a greater variety of leadership responsibilities demanding increased flexibility.  
  • To focus on the executive’s identified personal and/or leadership style that may be more effectively surfaced, understood, and modified in private, personalized sessions conducted by a neutral professional rather than in a group training situation.  
  • To help an executive explore needs and goals more deeply and to assess his or her development plans by considering personal and lifestyle factors, exploring possible value clashes, family dilemmas, stress and burnout issues, and feelings of alienation.  
  • To help resolve an executive’s problems with a superior, such as differing expectations of job description or client/customer protocols, conflicts regarding criteria in both the selecting of new talent and the firing of subordinates, or differences around interpretations of appropriate social and/or political behaviors.  
  • To help key managers fine-tune their style into the emerging desirable style of an organization’s “new vision or mission” or an altogether new corporate culture (as in a merger or acquisition).
  • Readings and written games and exercises to continually reinforce new skills.
  • Discovering individuals within the organization who may serve as coaches or mentors.
  • Keeping “behavior” reminders on desk, lectern, telephone, or in the car to stimulate practice of new skills.
  • Identifying internal/external resources for further development of skills such as workshops, classes, certificate and/or degree programs.
  • Scheduling meetings to resolve differences with “avoided” individuals.
