We listen to you, ask the right questions and make the right connections to ensure you find the right leader for your organization. Once we understand your goals and characteristics of your ideal candidate, we’ll engage our networks and yours to spread the word to bring in good candidates. We focus on the process so you can spend your limited time on the content of the search.
Meyer Consulting will work with your organization on the details and allow your Search Committee and staff time to be spent on the interaction with candidates and the selection.
Consensus building, and process management of the search – We’ll make it easy for your board to be fully engaged in the search process and facilitate essential consensus building and conversations that are so important to an effective search. Executive Search support generates the same results as you would get with a headhunter, but for much less money. You can’t afford to spend a lot of money and end up rolling the dice with your next leader. We can help…
