“The only source of knowledge is experience”
We understand the right ‘fit’ of objectives, people and culture is what increases the performance of any business.
In New Zealand you deal with the partners of the business. We’re proven performers – we know how to find the right Leader’s to continue (and evolve) our client’s vision and deliver results.
To win, you have to believe you can do it.
In a forest of trees, there are mighty Totara’s (a native New Zealand tree) out there. Our job is to help you find them. Whether it is a CEO or a direct report to the CEO, our candidates have to be a leader, not a pied piper. Entrepreneurs are pied pipers. They play seductive melodies and entice people into following them. Leadership is different. It calls for keeping a watchful eye on the business and making sure everyone understands what must get done. And creating a sense of urgency about that.
We assist our clients to find that special leader who can problem solve and see around corners - that is, to recognise well in advance what has to be done for the good of the business - so that the company is always leading the industry rather than trying to catch up. And no leader can do this alone – it takes a committed team. We also find the right senior level team to drive change.
Interim Managers handle expected or unexpected absences of key people, manage the development of new programs, provide specific expertise on a part-time basis, provide assistance in crisis situations or handle temporary workload increases. There are times where an interim solution provides appropriate cover will a full executive search process is undertaken. In certain instances an interim solution works better than a permanent hire - such as closing a subsidiary down or starting off a new business where the longer term need is likely to change as the fledgling business achieves some traction.
