Performance-Based Search System
Excellence in Executive Search depends upon more than good networking. To achieve your desired bottom line results, and take your company to the next level, a great hire must be able to execute specific, tangible objectives. The Performance-Based Search System begins with that end in mind, defines those critical results with you, and enables us to attract the best performers. With targeted custom sourcing and an extremely accurate assessment process, we provide candidates with full confidence they can do the job. Please take a tour of the Performance Based Search System below, or view/print the entire process here.
Understanding Company / Position
Your goals and culture are important and we will invest time to understand exactly how the new executive will fit into your plans and environment. We will visit your site, understand your current state and goals, the issues and challenges you are facing, and the specific objectives for and results needed from the new hire. We will also discuss specifics on where you want to see candidates coming from (companies, market segments, etc.) to facilitate our detailed custom sourcing. We will ask about your vision and your differentiators – what will attract the right candidate to want to come to work for you. This search road map enables us to set up the project for success.
Our expert in-house sourcing team finds candidates other firms can’t – high performing “A Players” and “passive” candidates (not active job-seekers). Every project is custom-sourced to your specific needs. We also maintain a proprietary database of excellent candidates that is constantly growing.The cornerstone of our process is the creation of a detailed Performance-Based Position Profile focused on the specific results you need from the hire. We also identify the values, beliefs, and character traits the successful candidate must possess to fit in your culture, and succeed in producing the desired outcomes.
Recruit / Evaluate Candidates
Our Performance-Based Position Profile and process enable us to recruit precisely targeted individuals for background and experience, motivation, and the specific ability to achieve your critical results. We also attract a higher yield of great candidates, because “passive” candidates want to know the objectives for the role, and why the position represents a career move for them. Once we determine the candidate can fulfill your mandate, we also learn the person’s values, beliefs, goals, priorities, motivation, work style, etc. to ensure a great fit in your culture.
Closing / Onboarding
Once the ideal candidate is selected, we advise and assist by extending the offer and obtaining candidate acceptance. We also facilitate the onboarding transition of the successful candidate to your company with consultation during the resignation and relocation process.
After the new hire is on board, we help to clarify, refine, and achieve alignment on the expectations and communication style with the employer and the new executive, to ensure early and continuing success.

Being a Vice President of Human Resources for over 30 years and being with three fortune 100 companies, it was evident to the successful key executives that I worked with during these years, that selecting high-performance team members to the company was one of the most important tasks we as executives “must do” to effectively manage and profitably grow our business.
