What Exactly Is Interim Leadership and How Can Leathwaite Help Your Organisation?


London, UK -- (SBWire) -- 08/29/2022 --[Trend topics]. The pandemic has changed more than just working models - it has also caused a seismic shift in attitudes too. For most executives, a full time contract with a sole employer used to be the accepted framework but today a much more flexible approach leans towards more agility in the workforce and tapping into the benefits of interim leadership roles. The most forward-focused businesses are increasingly hiring leaders on a short-term basis, usually to deal with a specific purpose (e.g. improving marketing or scaling up hiring). There are many benefits for enterprises that choose to capitalise on short-term access to the best talent in this way - you're, essentially, hiring an expert leader for a temporary period to provide an - often much-needed - boost to a very specific area of the business. That can not only have a positive impact in terms of your desired outcomes but when it comes to streamlining recruitment costs too.

Interim leadership roles are appearing across industries today and are increasingly being prioritised by the most exciting talent. These are people who are looking for a degree of career fluidity and are excited by the idea of taking on a new challenge. Their goal is to jump into an organisation and clear the current challenge, develop the specific workflow or achieve the desired outcome, at speed and with an efficiency that may not be available to someone in a more permanent position. All will bring with them years of industry knowledge and insight and specialist experience that can be precisely targeted at the area where the business most needs support. Interim leadership roles are increasingly popular among those with some of the most in-demand skill sets, from solving scaling challenges to training an in-house marketing team.
