Prince Harry will soon have a new title to add to his resume: chief impact officer. The Duke of Sussex is stepping into this job at the coaching and mental health firm BetterUp Inc., a for-profit startup based in San Francisco.

However, it’s not a very common role, according to Jan Koors, a senior managing director with the executive compensation consulting firm Pearl Meyer.

Koors explained that the role deals less with the nuts and bolts at a company, and handles more high-level questions like, “What kind of change are we trying to introduce into the organization?” and “How does the current structure of the organization either help that change or impede that change?”

At Pearl Meyer, we work with boards and organizations to design and implement compensation and leadership strategies that build great management teams.
