Solutions for the Board


Lead the way through times of transition

We help organizations to effectively navigate transitions at the top level of leadership. In a corporate environment where 2 out of 5 new CEOs fail in their first 18 months on the job, Boards call us first for executive coaching support that helps incoming CEOs to thrive in their new positions. First-time CEOs flourish, quickly achieving the results they want and the outcomes their new position demands. Seasoned CEOs settle in rapidly, getting clarity on goals, developing sound strategy, and implementing plans to reach their new organization’s objectives.

Contact Reliance Leadership Strategies for help with:

  • Navigating leadership transitions
  • CEO on-boarding, support, and performance management
  • Merger planning and implementation


“I worked at Peoples Advantage FCU for 8 years prior to becoming President/CEO.  Despite my knowledge of the organization, culture and team, I knew there would be challenges though my transition.  Working with Ken has provided me with tools and skills to help develop and coach my team so that we can work together and communicate more effectively.  His guidance has helped me navigate operational setbacks, organizational change, and achieve strategic goals. I’d highly recommend Ken as an executive coach to any new or developing leader, as his knowledge and skills have been invaluable.”
