Every day organizations make critical business decisions without understanding the distance between where they are today and where they need to be to succeed.

We call this the Human Potential Gap.

Effective change is as much about mindset and understanding motivation to change as it is about developing new skills.

Executive Search Global is the only organization consultancy to measure, evaluate and benchmark both skillset and mindset of employees to understand the talent you have and the talent you need to deliver sustainable growth.

The term “Human Potential Gap” is not a widely used or well-defined term in the field of psychology or human development. 

It refers to the difference between an individual’s current abilities and the maximum potential they have for growth and development in various areas such as cognitive, emotional, and physical functioning.

Leadership Potential – What’s your Gap?


Let us help you discover where you are now and where you need to be to achieve measurable results. 

Leadership potential refers to an individual’s ability to lead and manage others effectively. This can include traits such as charisma, intelligence, emotional intelligence, and the ability to communicate and make decisions.

Assessing leadership potential can be challenging because it involves predicting how someone will perform in a leadership role in the future. However, some methods that can be used to evaluate leadership potential include:

  • Behavioral assessments, which involve observation and analysis of an individual’s past performance in leadership roles
  • Personality assessments, which measure traits such as emotional intelligence and decision-making abilities
  • Cognitive ability tests, which measure intelligence and problem-solving skills
  • 360-degree feedback, which involves collecting feedback from an individual’s peers, supervisors, and subordinates

It is important to note that leadership potential is not fixed and can be developed over time through training and experience.  That’s where we come in.

Executive Search

Executive search, also known as headhunting, is a recruitment method that is used to find and place senior-level executives and other high-level professionals in organizations.

The process typically involves a search firm, also known as an executive search firm, working with an organization to identify and recruit top talent to fill key leadership positions.

Our executive search process starts with a consultation with your organization to understand your specific needs and requirements for the position.

Our search firm will then conduct a thorough research and identify a list of potential candidates through our personal networks and industry contacts.

Our firm will then conduct an initial screening and interviews with the candidates to assess their qualifications and suitability for the position, and present a shortlist of the most suitable candidates to the your organization.

Our firm will also assist the your organization in the final selection process, including reference and background checks and salary negotiation.

Once a candidate is selected, our search firm will also help facilitate the onboarding process.

Our  search firm is retained by the hiring company and are paid a fee upon successful placement of a candidate. 

Yes we are more expensive than traditional recruitment methods but we offer a valuable investment for organizations looking to fill key leadership positions with top talent.  That’s what we do best. 


Our Recruitment process is about finding and hiring your new employees for your organization. It typically involves a variety of activities such as advertising job openings, sourcing and screening potential candidates, interviewing candidates, and extending job offers.

We use several methods to identify candidates that may include:

  • Advertising: Posting job openings on online job boards, in newspapers, or on the company’s website.

  • Employee Referral: Encouraging current employees to refer friends or acquaintances for open positions.

  • Workforce Development Agencies: Working with recruitment agencies to find and screen candidates.

  • College / University Recruitment: Recruiting recent college / uni graduates through campus recruiting events or on-campus interviews.

  • Social Media: Utilizing social media platforms to advertise job openings and attract candidates.

  • Direct Sourcing: Identifying and contacting potential candidates directly, rather than waiting for them to apply.

Our recruitment process can vary depending on the organization and the position being filled, but it typically includes several steps such as:

  • Job analysis and design: Defining the requirements and duties of the position.

  • Sourcing: Finding and attracting potential candidates.

  • Screening: Reviewing resumes and applications to identify qualified candidates.

  • Interviewing: Meeting with candidates to evaluate their qualifications and fit for the position.

  • Selection: Choosing the best candidate for the position.

  • Onboarding: Assisting the new hire with the transition to the organization.

It is important for organizations to have a well-defined recruitment process to ensure they are able to attract and hire the best candidates for the job.
