The next leader. Choosing the right person to fill that role is probably the most important decision the head of the company has to make in order to ensure that the team benefits from the best environment to move forward towards reaching the business goals. But this is no easy task, as companies are entities per se, and their leaders are unique personalities who need to match with the organization’s core values, but who also have to find the right balance between their own drive and the established company objectives in order to perform at full potential.
Identifying the ideal candidate starts from the company, its business objectives, processes, culture, and people, as well the management in place and its vision for the future. On the other hand, the process requires using tools for assessment and analytics, as well as asking behavioural questions, which help the recruiter determine people’s potential and filter the most suitable candidates for the job.
Once all these components are coordinated by the company’s leadership and specialists together, the outcome would ensure not only smooth business continuity, but also enhanced performance and team motivation and alignment.
