Listening to feedback from many of our clients has revealed that they require an element of leadership assessment when making key hires within their business. We have taken this on board and have explored how we can best help as part of our recruitment services but ensuring there is no conflict of interest.
We now have our team who provide an array of services including Leadership Consulting. Working with highly regarded and experienced leadership consultants, we believe that we have found the solution to offer our clients an independent view as well as focusing on an individual’s level of potential. This not only offers the most cost-effective solution but also offers other efficiencies with just one point of contact who manages the entire process.
Will people fit, stay and grow?
Our Leadership Consultants look at the strategic challenges facing the business and the role, as well as the culture of the existing team. They use a number of psychometric tools combined with an in-depth interview to assess individuals who may be joining your business, or those internal candidates who may be ready for promotion. Will they fit the existing team and do they have the potential to add more value in the future are two critical questions that are focused on.
Hiring a candidate whose actual record of performance is later revealed through digital media or professional networks can cause not only the embarrassment to the hiring company but also real damage if the executive fails to perform or “fit” into the new culture. And both can impact shareholder value. Our Leadership Consultants will interview 5-7 references per candidate to provide an independent view of an individual.
We are flexible and adapt our approach to suit your business rather than prescribe a solution to ‘fix’ it’
Board Reviews (Executive and NED)
Given the board’s key role in setting the strategic vision of the organisation and monitoring of management, small improvements in the board’s performance can have a profoundly positive impact on the effectiveness of the organisation. Using methods such as silent observation of a board meeting, structured one-on-one interviews and 360-degree tools to gather anonymous feedback, our Leadership Consulting practice can identify any current issues within a Board and provide recommendations to improve alignment.
Are you prepared to fill critical roles that are created by retirement or unexpected departures?
The Leadership Consulting practice can help you identify and develop internal candidates for the most executive roles to ensure the business stays competitive.
