RHR International’s Executive Bench services provide companies with a comprehensive solution for building a strong pipeline of enterprise leaders with its two core components: a Readiness for Scale℠ assessment, which pinpoints strengths to leverage and gaps to close in preparation for executive leadership; and a Scaling for Growth℠ program, a best-in-class executive development program that closes gaps in scalability and accelerates readiness for enterprise leadership.

Dannielle brings over 20 years of professional experience that includes coaching senior leaders, delivering organizational development solutions, providing diversity and inclusion consulting, and designing leadership development experiences.

She synthesized multiple sources of leadership assessment data to provide clear feedback and actionable development recommendations critical for leaders to advance the organization’s digital strategy.
