Our Process

The Overriding Principle at the Core of
Our Process is the Human Element

Matching talented individuals to leadership roles requires more than simply pairing skills with openings. We have designed a process based on decades of executive search success finding high achieving executives for trailblazing clients. Our team forms long-term, personal relationships with our clients and candidates, giving us special access to high quality professionals you will not find on any recruiting site.

 

Openly communicating with our clients during the entire process, our partnership is transparent, efficient, and responsive to client needs. Our three-phase approach ensures you will hire a candidate who will be an amazing asset to your team. 

 

Phases

Three-phase Approach

Our three-phase approach ensures you will end up with a candidate who will be an amazing asset to your team.

At the core of our methodology is a commitment to understanding not just your company's needs but also its unique culture and dynamics. We go beyond traditional executive search processes to offer a personalized and insightful approach that guarantees the best possible match for your organization.

  • Phase 1: In-depth Interview
    We begin by gaining insight into your organization and the role through in-depth interviews, whereby we seek to understand your organizational structure, culture, and expectations for the position. This information is used to create a precise position specification and leadership profile that conveys key criteria for the candidate, highlights what makes the role a compelling opportunity for top talent, and ensures applicants are evaluated to meet your specific needs.
  • Phase 2: Strategic Recruitment
    We will develop a target list of qualified candidates using a multi-pronged approach honed over decades in retained executive search. We will perform contemporary market research, utilize our extensive international database, and directly contact candidates using messaging that ensures more positive responses. The most qualified and interested candidates are then personally interviewed to obtain a realistic assessment of their accomplishments, capabilities, and potential. Behavioral-based interviewing is used to ensure a candidate’s reported track record is examined and verified. This process has proven to consistently yield a group of qualified candidates you can compare and evaluate competitively.
  • Phase 3: Securing Talent
    Finally, you will conduct internal interviews with the candidates. We support our clients throughout the process of evaluating candidates, including scheduling meetings, developing interview questions, and gathering feedback; we provide guidance with issues such as attainability, compensation expectations, and relocation. Throughout the final offer and acceptance phase, we maintain regular contact with all parties and can also assist in the negotiation of compensation or terms of employment. Our communication and commitment do not end when the search is completed. We take great pride in knowing a large majority of our placements have not only stayed in their organizations beyond five years, they have been promoted and acknowledged for their contributions within their respective organizations.
