The Right Mindset

Hiring for Executive and Senior-level roles requires a high level of discovery, scrutiny, and due diligence – simply matching skills and experience to the role is a one-dimensional approach; and runs high risks.

Adding rigour to
candidate assessment

Having conducted a variety of executive search and interim projects for private equity backed businesses over the 15 years, we’ve developed a belief that within that environment, success isn’t easy to quantify and what may look like a credible career on paper, cannot guarantee results.

To succeed in this complex world, with its multiple stakeholders, fast pace and need for effective decision making, a particular type of personality is required; a personality distinct from the leaders of the corporate world; entrepreneurial, dynamic and decisive, but at the same time more settled and calm than the start-up leader.

We call this The Right Mindset.

The Right Mindset was developed in partnership with Chartered Occupational Psychologist, Paula Brockwell, who conducted the research across two groups.
