The Challenge of Executive Recruiting Today
There might have been a time when recruiting was one-dimensional. You needed to fill a position, the candidate was qualified, you hired the candidate.
Not now. Today, and most especially in the high-risk field of leadership and high-value positions, it is a complex undertaking that starts before you know you need someone and continues long after you have engaged the “perfect person”.
The drivers are not hidden. Good candidates want attention from you and a personalized experience. Leadership qualities now include a high degree of technological knowledge. Fast-moving markets make strategizing more critical and more difficult.
