Your organization has its own unique needs and timetables. Carlson Group works closely with you to meet them, and to ensure an open and effective communications process.

BEYOND THE HANDSHAKE. It starts with real conversations about what’s working and the challenges that lie ahead. We begin by gaining a deep understanding of your business, leadership, and culture.

OUR REACH WILL EXTEND YOURS. We use our extensive database to identify high-performing talent that meet your unique needs. Talented, driven candidates who want to grow with your company.

BESIDE YOU. THE ENTIRE WAY. True partnership means we will be there every step of the way from initial consult, throughout the search and even after the hiring is complete. Our priority is you.


Fully understanding your company’s strategy and leadership needs is essential to hiring the right person. Therefore, we collaborate with you to understand how your open position fits into the broader picture, and to identify targeted companies and organizations that will best yield potential candidates. We then conduct our own research into targeted companies and leverage our proprietary database of industry contacts.  


After identifying and vetting potential candidates, Carlson Group presents the most qualified individuals in a user-friendly report that allows for easy comparison. From that report, you select candidates to be more thoroughly interviewed by Carlson Group. After completing our interviews, you receive a comprehensive report that includes our assessment and recommendations. From this summary, you select candidates for internal interviews.


We conduct thorough reference checks on your final candidates. Building on the knowledge we acquire from candidates throughout the search process, we help you create an offer package that will be most attractive to the best candidate. We can also provide negotiation support.


After completing the search, our work is not done. We will stay in contact with your new hire to ensure a smooth transition. Companies make a significant investment in each leader they bring on board, and there is a tremendous value in getting the new executive up and running quickly. For clients who may need additional support, we have several strategic partners to consider when selecting an onboarding coach for their new leader.
