Executive & Leadership Searches

Whether you are growing your team or replacing a key person, finding the right leader that models your
values, integrates easily into your culture, and has the aptitude and expertise to deliver results,
is paramount to the success of your team, division, or company.

When it fails

You have had this happen before – everything lined up well, the interview and lunch went great, you enjoyed the interviews, their experience is what you need, others liked them too, so you hire them.
Then it starts, in a few weeks or a few months. People start complaining, the team is tense, metrics are missed, fingers are pointing. Your new hire is either stressed out or has their head in the sand. You are playing mediator, investing hours to make things work, & right the ship. You are either hoping your new hire does not bail or assessing if you need to pull the plug.

We have been there too – it is exhausting and frustrating.

Finding the right person and integrating them effectively is not easy, especially when: you already have a full plate,
recruiting is not your day-to-day priority, you are usually under a deadline there are often multiple stakeholders involved and time constraints and unconscious biases can lead you down the wrong path. While you are trying to do your best all this can lead to scattered process, poor decisions, ho hum start ups, and a misaligned hire, all of which have significant opportunity costs. It can cost you in employee morale, profits, and the direct costs of replacing a new person which can be up to two times their salary. 1

When it succeeds

A proven process plus an experienced team with a broad network will reward you with results beyond what you could accomplish squeezing in a few extra hours a day. Stay focused on your priorities and let us find, screen, and present top shelf people for you to make a final decision on.
