Our Business

With over three decades of experience in Executive Search, Interim Management and Executive Assessments, Leaders Trust (a founding member of AltoPartners) strives for innovative changes within your business. Our deep-seated belief in the ability of people is our biggest strength. Where other firms see race, gender, age, culture, personality types, personal values, experience, and qualifications in isolated silos, we see a set of characteristics that set candidates apart and make them perfect in the right context.

To change as a company or organisation, you need the right leader – that one person who is in touch with the spirit of the times, who can strike out in a new direction, without losing sight of existing values. That one person who can motivate others to consider all the possibilities. The person people are eager to work alongside. By closely linking to client needs, we find the right person for every context – whether it is for permanent executive roles or interim executive assignments.

Executive Assessments

To find the right person in the right place at the right time, our consultants assess candidates in which we focus on the personality fit regarding the chosen strategy. Does he/she fit in the team? Does the candidate share the values? Will the person bring the results that we are looking for? Will the candidate bring the change we need and foresee?

At Leaders Trust, we believe that the combination of the personality structure, the environment in which the client organisation operates, and the person’s cognitive skills are decisive for professional success. Our vision of cognitive skills is that the focus relies on not only what a person already is capable of, but also in the long-term: the candidate’s potential to develop.
