Unlike typical executive search firms, we don't simply add Sports into our areas of expertise. This is our one and only area of expertise. As former executive search senior executives, we seriously believe that Coaches do not fit the traditional generic executive search criteria, nor process. In no other leadership role regardless of the industry, are team performance, results, and "fit" more important. In other words, we are not distracted performing any searches other than Coaches...this is what and ALL we do 24/7/365.
Our process is labor-intensive after being awarded a mandate. A typical search process lasts between 1-2 weeks with an ultimate goal of an offer being accepted by week 3. We do the "heavy lifting" out of the gate by screening candidates and only presenting a viable short list to our clients. We also employ the most intensive criminal background check and reference testing in the marketplace. We pride ourselves on only presenting our clients with the Best in the game, and don't understand how to waste anyone's precious time.
Probably the most "overused" term today for former Executives currently unemployed. Competency, experience, success, leadership and value-add are but a few of the important traits one should be looking for in hiring an Executive Coach. Combining "coaching the coaches" experience with 30+ years of senior leadership in multi-national corporate environments is just the starting point. Having sat "in the seat" and understanding business and people issues, including how to communicate effectively are best practices that are consistently shared. Add the element of Mental Performance Coaching into your organization, and you've reaped the absolute "knock-out punch" and perfect world.
