• Competency Mapping: Before starting the selection process, it is essential that the company conducts a detailed mapping of the competencies and skills required for the leadership position in question. This includes both sector-specific technical skills and the desired soft skills.
• Assessment Centres and Behavioural Interviews: The use of assessment centres is an effective tool to assess candidates' competencies in simulated situations of everyday corporate life. Behavioural interviews are essential to analyse how candidates deal with challenges, solve problems and behave in different scenarios.
• Previous Results Analysis: Assessing candidates' professional history is crucial to identify their past achievements, how they faced changing situations and what results they obtained. This provides a clear insight into the potential of C-Level leaders to drive business transformation.
• Partnership with Specialised Consultancies: Recruiting C-level leaders requires expertise and access to a wide network of qualified professionals and partnering with specialised executive recruitment consultancies is an efficient approach to find the best candidates available in the market.
With an approach focused on the soft skills needed and a careful selection of C-level leaders, companies will be better prepared to face the challenges of business transformation.
