The Chemistry Factor
Executive Search Services

If you’ve ever had an employee that gets the job done but disrupts your team dynamics, you know it is a recipe for discontent in your firm.  Its negative affect may be hard for you to address in a busy office but will lead to diminished productivity, innovation, and morale throughout your company. The best time to prevent poor business relationships in your company is during the hiring process.

Your company’s talent is your biggest asset for success. Disconnected relationships will have a derogatory impact on your firm’s ability to retain and acquire the best talent in the industry. They spread frustration, anger, and anxiety throughout your organization; a bad formula for inspirational leadership.

The most important factor in hiring talent is the strength of the relationship chemistry a new hire brings to your company. Powerful chemistry is created by the values that are shared with the candidate and your staff. The ability of a new colleague’s values to align with your organization will have a major impact on your business success.

We encourage the romancing of the interview process. The more executives in your firm who interview and approve of a candidate, the greater the buy-in and support for that candidate’s success. We recommend all the executives who will interact with the candidate, applying for your open position, be included in the interview process and strongly advise second or even third interviews with a direct report.

How do you know if a potential hire will be a strong fit in your company culture? The single most important ingredient for strong relationship chemistry are your values. When you and your executives can better articulate the values you have in common with a candidate you will replace your instinctive “gut feelings” with a stronger defined characterization of the relationship.

You spend more waking hours with the people at work than you do with anyone else, yet have only hours of face to face time to determine how strong the relationship will be. Your ability to listen for the values that too often go unidentified in an interview conversation, makes for much better-informed hiring decisions.

Authentically connected relationships occur when a shared value is being honored at the same time between two or more people. These are the powerful relationships that enhance productivity, innovation, and inspiration at work. Your chemistry factor is determined by your ability to authentically connect with others. The greater the chemistry factor is between your executives and the successful candidate the greater the impact on your business success.
