Competitive advantages that Carlson Beck brings to each search on behalf of clients include:
Strategic Thought and Partnership – Each Partner creates an active partnership with his or her clients, serving as a “trusted advisor,” guiding the client team through the search and assessment process. Each Partner meets with the clients’ Board members to counsel and develop an effective search strategy, share market intelligence and feedback, and provide industry context.
Partner-led Experience – Partners interview each presented professional and prepare a detailed background history and assessment for each candidate. Honest, direct appraisal of candidates is a critical and unique component of our value proposition to clients and candidates. The search team stays with the client for the entire process.
Deep Commitment to Our Clients’ Missions – Our professional and personal work demonstrates our commitment to our clients’ work. Our professional objectives are to find the absolute best talent for organizations, whether it is a top-of-organization position or a top-of-function role. We are seeking the best leadership and the best fit possible. Our personal commitment to the nonprofit and philanthropy sectors is evidenced by our volunteer work as directors on Boards and as philanthropists supporting high-impact organizations.
