Interim Executive

Proven experts step in to drive your project, engage the team, and deliver exceptional results.

A project might require temporary leadership, or a level of expertise that is not available within the client’s current team.

That is when Waddell Group steps in. Our interim leaders operate effectively at all levels of complex organizational structures to create action, visibility and efficiency that yields success.

Forward movement and accomplishment is what we create – visibility too, in many cases, but more important is that we get things moving.

Leadership Training

Great change does not come from working harder, but by honing your ability to lead.

Become confident in your ability to lead your team, even when a project is turned upside down. We facilitate training workshops (through Project Leadership Services) for your company’s team leaders, with the goal of creating long term organizational success.  Courses specific to your company needs are available.
