There can often be a disconnect between what the perception of the ideal CEO candidate is and what a truly exceptional CEO candidate looks like.

Successful CEOs are not always the charismatic extroverts that are portrayed; they can often appear more introverted during the interview process. This is why interviews alone can often overlook the best candidates and all of CHA’s Executive Searches include our Assessments as standard.

It is essential that the board is clear around the desired culture and long-term vision for the company before starting the process. CHA will work with you to identify the traits and competencies that a successful candidate will hold in order to deliver the vision and values that you require.
