Situation : Our client, one of the largest multinational financial institute with presence in 160 countries had administered a multiple perspective feedback multi-rater to members of the senior leadership teams in India. Five country Directors reporting into regional managing directors in the EMEA and APAC regions were amongst a group of 15 others from different geographies who were identified as high potential leaders to take up strategic regional roles with an expanded set of responsibilities and working with global stakeholders. These Directors (M&A, Investment Banking and Shared Services) were responsible for value added advisory and revenues. Only eight positions existed for the next level roles.
