Executive search is used for mid-and top management and hard-to-find, special skill roles.
At the commencement of the search we determine the list of target companies based on the job specification. We systematically pursue each incumbent of the searched role.
The lead time of executive search projects up to the short list phase is 5-6 weeks, the total lead time being 60-90 days as detailed below:
Preparation of the job specification:
In our executive search service we don`t build up database we only use direct search. All received CVs are destroyed to comply with GDPR requirements.
This service is very popular among those clients who are still in a job somewhere but would like to make the most of their current role, get an idea on alternatives, or receive feedback on their market value.
The process opens with a 45 minute orientational discussion, during which we assess the requirements, establish the basic framework (length of the process, the frequency of the meetings, homework, etc.) and conclude a contract. This is also a good opportunity for mutual introductions and meeting the coach in person.
It is important to note that for the success of the process full commitment is vital, participation in itself is not enough. Coaching works fast and in a personalised way but we cannot spare determination and stepping over our boundaries.
Sessions last 90 minutes and are usually repeated evey 2-3 weeks, depending on the subject. An average process takes 5-8 meetings but there have been cases when even 1 time was enough.
We strive to ensure that sessions are as personalised as possible, they are compatible with the individuals’s life situation and goals and provide an effective solution for dealing with difficult challenges.
With several clients we went beyond individual coaching and initiated comprehensive and complex change processes that affected the whole organisation. The purpose of these processes were to deploy the internal resources and prepare the organisation for the changes, etc.
Main areas: decision-making processes, communication system and style, management style, the relationship between management and subordinates, conflict management, building strategy and vision for the future, goal setting.
Recruitment specific trainings
We offer individual or group trainings on interviewing techniques for corporate interviewers. The training incorporates employer branding and social media elements.
Moderation is an interactive work method during which we use creative yet structured visual elements such as colourful cards and pinboards. As only one participant is allowed to talk at one time in a discussion, the method ensures that everyone can share their views and opinions. The process is extremely transparent so not even the least extrovert participant will be repressed by their „louder” colleagues. The method helps deal with complex problems within a short period of time. We specifically recommend this method for management meetings, annual planning or for major project kick-off meetings.
AC (Assessment Center)
Assessment Center (AC) is a selection technique to assess whether applicants are expected to work out in their future roles. During the AC, candidates are faced with a number of tasks typical to the role and their behaviour and reactions will give an indication on how they would perform in real life. Results have shown that candidates selected with this method are more likely to function well since the process focuses on both verbal and practical experience.
