There are four distinct periods in the Protégé Search process. We augment this process with two critical aspects of client stewardship. First, we communicate, and then communicate, and then communicate some more. Second, we tailor the search process to the unique needs of each client assignment – whether it’s candidate case study assignments, benchmarking an internal candidate against the market, more extensive referencing, or intensive, customized coaching.
Diverse Talent Pipelines
Talent Advisory in Diversity
Executive Coaching for Diverse Talent
The first 90 days are critical to the success of new executives. This is why we offer wrap around executive coaching for each placement. These coaching sessions are included as part of every search assignment at no additional charge. We also provide executive coaching to existing leaders in the organization on an individual basis to help maximize and sustain their performance and to ensure their retention.
Our Focus and Experience
We recruit for functions and roles we understand deeply, and within networks we know extensively. Protégé Search specializes in finding high performing, senior leaders from diverse backgrounds in the following corporate functions and roles:
What Our Clients Can Expect
Understanding the Need
We partner with you to understand the context for the hire, the uniqueness of your organizational culture, and the specific competencies and attributes the successful candidate should possess. We write a detailed position description and provide an early preview of the candidate market to set appropriate expectations.
Sourcing the Market
We tap into our extensive networks and apply rigorous research methodologies to find the true superstars in the market. We set up periodic check-ins to ensure client satisfaction with the competencies, compensation, and culture fit within the candidate slate.
Evaluating the Slate
We collaborate with clients to organize interviews and evaluate feedback from the internal interview team. We prioritize candidates for the first and second round interviews and, on occasion, help to develop case study assignments for finalist candidates.
Selecting the Finalist
We are tethered to our clients through the final stage of the search process, and beyond. We negotiate the offer, check references, and with your guidance, help provide executive coaching over the first 90 days of the executive’s tenure. Our last retainer is paid when the candidate accepts the offer, ensuring that we move quickly to find you the highest performing, diverse candidates on each assignment.
