"Aaaaaah! The empty chair. " Someone will occupy it, but only after art and science combine to select the candidate with the "it" factor. If a search consultant is engaged to find that person, he or she must also have the "it" factor. Which executive search consultant truly listens and "hears" the client, understand the nuances and sees beyond what is said? They all have the same story - access to research, candidates, prior experience in an industry or function, good presence, well-rehearsed answers and questions. Clients are bombarded with telephone calls, invitations to lunches, and any manner of ways to create a relationship.
"Discernment in all stages." Clients are wise, informed consumers who understand recruiting better than ever. They know quality and they want and deserve good service at a reasonable cost. The days of doing business on the golf course are over. Discerning between the search consultant, who combines the "art of knowing" the right candidate, after deploying the "science of research and technology," and the one who is "just a recruiter" is a key factor in choosing who will bring the best results.
