Case Study In Skill Enhancement

A CEO Develops Skills for the Future


Linda had been CEO of a regional financial institution for five years when she approached Sinnott Executive Consulting. Having received consistently positive feedback on her overall performance, Linda didn’t want the board and parent organization to begin to see her as “stale.”

Linda’s priority was enhancing her executive skills, particularly her ability to lead change in the organization. She felt that in the next three to five years the organization would need to change its product mix, cost position and customer orientation for the business to meet the ever-changing needs of its customers. Linda wanted to be the kind of capable leader who could do all this, and she knew she had to invest in herself in order to reach this goal.

Dan Sinnott began by assessing the company and helping Linda develop a plan that detailed where the organization would be in three to five years, and named specific leadership and business skill that would be needed to lead the organization toward the five-year goals.

Sinnott Executive Consulting helped Linda develop her ability to lead change, and other skills needed to step toward the future, by providing the information and confidential support Linda needed to see the future of her organization more clearly.

As a result of Linda’s new and enhanced skills, her organization was able to successfully change and become more profitable. Linda says, “The best thing about Dan Sinnott was that he was a former CEO himself, and had mentored other CEOs. Dan made me feel like I could really trust him as a source of knowledge and advice.”
