  2. Interviewing Executives

    Interviewing executives requires a different approach than interviewing other candidates. It's essential to ask open-ended questions that reveal a candidate's Leadership style, decision-making abilities, and strategic thinking. Interviewers should also assess a candidate's fit with the Company Culture and values.
  3. Reference Checks for Executives

    Reference Checks are crucial for verifying a candidate's background and experience. When checking references for executives, it's essential to speak with former colleagues, peers, and subordinates to get a complete picture of the candidate's Leadership style and performance.
