At this critical stage of the process, we focus on interviewing and evaluating a cross section of impressive potentials to identify the optimum fit, probability of success, and impact. We assess capabilities, track record, style and personality. We will typically interview 7-12 impressive candidates per search. From this continuous "benchmarking" process, "industry best" Managers are identified and recommended for your unique opportunity.
Throughout your interviewing process, we communicate closely with yourself and the candidates. Gauging and qualifying their level of interest is important to inform you of how close we are to finalizing the search. Our role is to make sure the candidate of your choice has realistic expectations so that at the offer stage, an acceptance is a foregone conclusion. We do not allow offers to be made without a firm commitment from their side. We assure no last minute surprises, only handshakes and smiles all around.
