Decrypting Leadership Attributes for hiring market makers and thought leaders

Business Landscape

Leadership objectives range from innovation and growth to motivating teams and addressing inorganic growth. Building thought leadership, gaining share, and growing the pie are a given.

The last few years has seen more disruption than the decade before. New business models emerge as threats to traditional businesses. This disruption is compelling leadership to evolve. Most organizations look for executives with a proven capability to lead in a disruptive VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity) environment. This has become a significant ask.

Identifying and attracting flexible and innovative talent requires a rigorous approach. An organization must assess an executives’ ability to be successful in specific roles and deal with future uncertainties. It also involves gauging the dynamics of business in light of market forces, regulatory changes, growth opportunities, and high cost environments.

We combine deep industry and functional knowledge with a proven executive search and assessment methodology to help you identify leaders

CECE Framework

The fact is that we are living in a disruptive world. Tech adoption integrated with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) amidst market volatility and regulations is the norm. And this has a huge ramification on how an organization functions. This in turn impacts their key leadership’s style, capabilities and adaptability.

As a leadership advisory and executive search firm, we help you navigate through this. We help define critical and unique roles with skills of the future. We find the right leader that fit in behaviourally, technically and culturally. A leader that can steer the organization through haziness and uncertainty while catalyzing its people.

And find you the right leader; we use our proven and adaptable CECE (Competence, Experience, Culture and Emotion) Framework. It holistically aligns and calibrates a potential leader’s background, experience, values and capabilities to the Organization’s ask. It helps establish the right synergies and fit.

Most enterprises focus on a leader’s capability to focus on short to midterm goals. Organizations also focus on their execution excellence. However, studies have proven that emotional quotient and an ability to quickly weave into the organizations’ fabric are equally important. Most leaders fail because of their inability to adjust and adapt to cultures, dynamics and changing environments. A leader must be aligned and cohesive with the environment.
