It seems undeniable that the executive job market is strong right now. But nine clients landing across the US, Europe, UK, and the Middle East per week for the first six weeks of 2022 is simply unprecedented! Fifty-four! In fact, it is not the volume of client success that really occupies us, but rather the quality of it. Our clients have worked hard to achieve their gains, but they tell us time and time again that they could never have reached the same size of role, scope and/or compensation without us.
“The Barrett Group really exceeded my initial expectations. I thought I’d just need their help locating a good fit at the income level I was seeking. I didn’t expect to need help in personality assessment, but I was fooling myself. My [Clarity] coach, Ken Malouf, really challenged me to be honest and transparent about my values and goals. Sometimes it is beneficial for us to swallow our pride and recognize that we need a fresh set of eyes to look at our situation.” [Matt Fretwell, 2021. Read More.]
Sometimes prospects ask us if we specialize in a certain industry and we always answer with perfect candor that our process works around the world and in all industries because it is the methodology that delivers success not our network. Here is a sample of the industries our clients landed in during 2022 so far:
Especially when the executive job market is as hungry as now, how do you maximize your financial opportunity? Simple. Hire the Barrett Group. Our thirty years of experience have amassed incredible negotiation support. Here’s a sample of recent clients’ financial achievements:
Beyond all the froth of helping so many clients land, we actually have achieved something even more important for our clients. As Matt Fretwell explained above, every Barrett Group client goes through a process of soul-searching to discover underlying behavioral tendencies, current life circumstances, and medium-term goals and aspirations. This Clarity Program© sets clients on the track for maximum fulfillment in their whole lives, not just at work.
Here is how one satisfied client described her experience:
“The Clarity Program was a great start in my journey. Often in our career paths we don’t stop to take the time to understand our strengths, weaknesses, goals, challenges, motivators, de-motivators and those things that can stop us from moving forward. We don’t ask the “why” in the process. The Clarity process and coach walks you through your short and long term aspirations and your best path to reach your goals. It helps set the stage to build your confidence moving forward in what can be a stressful and challenging situation.” [Jocelyn Hirschfeld, 2021]
Approaching the executive market, some candidates elect to “try it on their own,” and many of them ultimately return to us saying “actually, I have no idea what I’m doing in my career search.”
Save yourself some time and aggravation and feel some relief up front in your search because with the Barrett Group, you can be sure that you will choose a holistic and suitable career direction, field interviews and/or offers within 3 to 6 months, and ultimately not leave any money on the table when it comes to negotiating your compensation package.
