Interim Leadership (Exec, Director, Manager)
Forum leaders have experience in both start-up and large enterprise environments. We step into any team situation, quickly assess dynamics and provide tell-it-straight, objective advice. We work with owners and boards to address unique and delicate situations. We can help you run the organization, determine the skill sets for the role, recruit and transition to full time employees.
