Executive Career Transition & Outplacement

The right leader at the right time can make all the difference to an organization’s success. But not every leader is suited for every situation.

When you find that a leader within your organization is not ideal for your current circumstances, you can look at it as a challenge or as an opportunity: you improve your organization by finding the right leader, and the current leader is transitioned to a position more suited to their skills and experiences.

When done right, all parties benefit and your organization stays in good standing with both the departing leader and your current employees.

At Optimum Talent, our Executive Career Transition & Outplacement Services addresses the concerns of employers and the leaders being transitioned. We create flexible solutions that help departing executives find new roles they’re passionate about while simultaneously protecting the organization’s brand and business goals.


Organizational Benefits

  • Continuity – Transitions are tough for everyone. Our plans are built to ensure your organization continues to produce results through the transition.


  • Brand Protection – Word-of-mouth is an important component of your brand, and ex-employees carry a lot of weight when it comes to the external perception of your organization. If you treat transitioning leaders with care and respect, that message will carry into the marketplace.


  • Legal – Legal risks can’t be ignored, and Optimum Talent’s experienced team will ensure your organization and the individuals within it are protected.

Individual Benefits

  • New Possibilities – Our experienced team often opens exiting employees to opportunities they hadn’t previously considered. After a thorough assessment using our SuccessFinder tool, we can provide direction to transitioning employees that leads them to new positions for which they’re ideally suited.


  • Executive-level Networking – Optimum Talent provides transitioning employees with access to executive-level networking events that will help them extend their own network and access to new industries, organizations, and opportunities.


  • 12-month access to the Optimum Talent Career Management Portal – The transitioning leader will gain 12-month access to our extensive career portal, introducing them to multiple opportunities that change and evolve over time.

Our Approach


1. Assess the Situation – Determine the employee’s emotional situation. Spousal support and access to credible financial advice is also made available.

2. Explore Options –
Have the transitioning leader perform a self-assessment, determine a brand/value proposition, do a market assessment, then strategically target candidates based on professional level, location, and industry.


3. Develop Strategic Marketing Plan – Develop a communication strategy, networking plan, and conduct interview preparation.


4. Execute and Negotiate – Evaluate and negotiate offers of employment with the support of our team.

5. Focus on the Future
– Review lessons learned from the transition, confirm that business connections and networks are still stable, and provide 90 days of integration coaching.

Think Big Picture: As many as 60% of departing employees will remain in their former company’s eco-system as buyers, suppliers, influencers, or competitors. So how you treat them, really does matter.
