As recruiters, both in K.M.Trust (our executive search & leadership consulting firm) and Key2Success (our mid-management recruitment firm), we receive almost daily requests from people considering a career move or in need of career advice.
Despite the fact that “one size does not fit all” there are some general steps I would recommend in such cases and thought of sharing them with you:
Why do some executives create value and others destroy value? During our one day executive program we talked about the key traits that companies should look for in order to hire the right people. Check out some of the key components of the benchmark we’ve developed for our clients in the video.
On May 23rd we hosted and co-delivered a one-day executive development program in Bucharest, the first in a series of programs with top business schools’ faculty on topics addressing our mission: “helping companies live their values”.
The program was facilitated by Frank Cespedes, Senior Lecturer at Harvard Business School and by Radu Manolescu, Managing Partner at K.M.Trust & Partners and focused on strategic choices & value creation. We talked about adaptability and personalization as being the key ingredients in addressing the evolving needs of the stakeholders and how companies who excel at leading a diverse array of generations (motivated by very different drivers) will succeed and flourish.
Two years ago, I wrote an article about “the end of Executive Search as we know it” mentioning the fact that I considered that even the name of the industry was inappropriate while the value for the customer has actually never been just “search” but way more than that.
