To be truly effective for our clients: be that when delivering executive search projects hiring senior leaders into your business or coaching your existing senior leadership team, we need to really get under the skin of a business, not just in terms of culture (that’s taken as a given!) but strategy, financials, mid-long-term vison along with potential challenges or hurdles to growth.
Its not uncommon for briefing sessions for recruiting senior executives to take half a day or more to truly shape a brief in a collaborative way. Typically, this insight is then crafted into an extensive candidate briefing pack that serves as an employer branding tool for our clients going forwards.
Post project feedback from both internal stakeholders and candidates almost always revolves around depth of knowledge and a highly effective briefing being the key factor contributing to project success.
