About Carlson Beck

Our Style: consultative, inquisitive, observant, and results-oriented.

Our View: Leadership transition is an inflection point in an organization’s evolution. It can be a time for thoughtful, strategic organizational introspection. To this end, we see our role in the process as serving as a trusted adviser, offering objective, professional, high-value counsel. We work in strategic partnership with our clients, establishing a heightened level of mindshare about the organization and its culture, changes and challenges, to form the right questions and identify the critical success factors and key metrics. We create a finely honed lens through which to view candidates; this lens reflects the acuity of our understanding of the client’s needs and the candidates’ skill sets and experience as well as motivations, aspirations, and values.
At Carlson Beck, our objective is to provide the context and information with which to make a well-informed, contextual decision. We engage deeply with our clients, obtaining input from Board members, staff, stakeholders, volunteers, and clients. We also engage in a deep, detailed, and holistic fashion with candidates. We seek to gain insight into the “whole person” that each candidate brings to the search process and leadership role and responsibilities.

We understand what’s at stake – your organization’s future.
