Now more than ever transformation is on everyone’s mind, but how do you find new leaders who fit with your company and at the same time can truly transform your business?
Finding transformational leaders is our expertise
LHH Knightsbridge’s experience in business transformation has shown us that what is required to succeed in a ‘business as usual’ environment is foundational, but not enough to drive transformation. Transformation requires additional leadership capabilities.
Our executive search process follows a proven methodology, overlaid with a proprietary approach to assessing leaders in order to uncover top candidates with transformational leadership capabilities.
Finding and then attracting transformational leaders to your organization makes all the difference
Deep knowledge of your industry and organization
Our ability to successfully attract candidates to the roles or functions you’re looking to hire comes from being highly knowledgeable about your industry and our commitment to understand your organization with its unique circumstances. With this expertise in hand, we’re well positioned to offer compelling reasons for how candidates can bring their unique qualifications to your leadership opportunity and make a difference in your organization.
Scientific data in the decision-making process
Leveraging the work of our leadership consulting team on transformational leadership capabilities, we go beyond assessing candidates for their experience and fit with the role and organization to include an exploration of evidence of the candidate’s transformational leadership capabilities.
This exploration includes our proprietary Assessment for Transformational Leadership and an in-depth interview by an LHH Knightsbridge assessment professional. If requested, we can also leverage a broader psychometric assessment to further validate strengths, potential blind spots, and readiness for the role.
The outcome is a multi-dimensional analysis of all aspects of fit ensuring you are hiring leaders who are aligned with your current and future needs, and a plan to help them transition successfully into the position. There is simply no better way to “de-risk” the hiring decision.
Underpinned by our view on transformation, our proven process is tailored to your organization’s unique requirements.
A new take on a proven process
Through all phases of the executive search process (planning, research, candidate evaluation, final selection and integration), our services are future-focused, scientifically-rigorous, and concentrated on finding candidates who have succeeded largely as a result of their transformational leadership abilities and approaches.
Identifying diverse board candidates skilled at driving transformation
As organizations grapple with unanticipated risk and disruptive competitive forces, boards need to look for innovative directors who can help the organization navigate through the uncertainty ahead. It requires a new skill set, a new mindset, a new relationship with management—all layered on a strong governance knowledge base.
