Executive Service For Your Next Career Step

Our 5-step proprietary methodology is comprised of:

1. Clarity Program© 2. Personal Branding and Campaign Development 3. Market Access to Hiring Executives 4. Preparation for Interviews and Offer Negotiation 5. Onboarding

All 5 steps are executed by a team of 7 specialists led by a career consultant dedicated to you

Step 1 – Clarity Program©

│Challenge You know you want a change, but you are still unsure in which direction it should go. Continue with the same role, but in a different organization or start something new? Spend more time with your family, take better care of your health? Clarify what your strengths are, specify the work environment in which you could flourish (e.g. high pace / high stress or more balanced)?

│Solution The Clarity Program© is designed to improve your own self-knowledge so as to help you be more effective and avoid career obstacles, as well as to validate what is important to you not only professionally, but also in your whole life. Our experience shows that as much as 50% of clients want a change in their career after going through the Clarity Program©.

│Deliverable Your strategic plan both for work and for your life, and a better understanding of your behavioral profile. 90% of our clients rate the Clarity Program© as “excellent.” It is also available on its own.

Step 2 – Personal branding and campaign development

│Challenge Not only is uploading your CV on different websites ineffective, but it is also risky. As thousands of CVs are managed by junior HR people and/or algorithms, unable to properly evaluate your skills, your CV looses its value.

│Solution That’s why step 2 is defining your value proposition and the best way to position you. What makes the difference is to quantify your value to the specific audience / employer rather than depict a generic set of activities that don’t get you anywhere. It also helps in negotiating your offer later on.

│Deliverable Your social capital strategy, including resumes and cover letters tailored to each opportunity, your upgraded LinkedIn profile, and clear briefings for each stage of reaching out to your new network.

Step 3 - Market Access to Hiring Executives

│Challenge Getting the access to the key decision makers is not easy. On one side, you may not even know about the opportunity as 75% of new executive searches are executed via the unpublished market. On the other side, approaching the hiring executives with cold calling is simply not effective.

│Solution Therefore Step 3 provides you with access to the hiring executives in the company and the location you desire, as well as a social capital strategy to approach them with referrals rather than cold calling. Our research team has access to thousands of contacts, intelligently segmented based on the role of hiring manager, desired company and location.

│Deliverable The key deliverables are the contact information for key decision makers and the strategy to approach them to secure interviews.

Step 4 – Preparation for Interviews and Offer Negotiation

│Challenge How to be well prepared to respond adequately to tough interview questions? And how to negotiate the offer, in a positive and respecful way, not leaving money on table?

│Solution It is all about anticipating tough interview questions and developing fluid, authentic responses.  We also help identify critical gaps and potential pitfalls, such as whether your experience is truly transferrable.  Through role play, we equip clients with practical interview experience that assures they will perform much better in their live interviews.

│Deliverable The key deliverable is to help you get the interviews, improve performance during the interviews, and then receive better offers.

Step 5 - Onboarding

│Challenge How to get off to a good start in the new, unknown territory? How to identify the needs of key stakeholders? How to prioritize all of them? How could interdepartmental politics affect your performance?

│Solution We find the first 100 days are critical for future success and we want all of our clients to get off to a good start. This is where we can help with onboarding, ensuring a happy landing, including planning ahead and how to manage and prioritize stakeholders.

│Deliverable The deliverable is your onboarding plan, an evaluation of the organizational landscape that includes an analysis of functional interdependencies, and coaching to get it right.
