But it can be difficult for leaders to decide what to prioritize, even in the short term. In my discussions with leaders of small and midsize businesses (SMBs) I’ve heard firsthand how they are facing a variety of new challenges from inventory and supply chain shortfalls to employee capacity, facility remediation, and PPE for employees. The following “Priorities Playbook” shares ways SMBs are successfully managing toward new, shorter-term goals by focusing on four key priorities.
Founded in 2009, Spectrum fills a critical void in the marketplace: delivering access to world class talent to entrepreneurial and middle market-sized businesses, many of whom are owned by Private Equity firms. We recruit C-Suite talent for Private Equity firms and Functional Leaders for their Executive Management teams. It takes a certain type of candidate to thrive inside of these less structured and dynamic portfolio companies requiring very hands-on leaders who are doers. Successfully recruiting accomplished A players who have this profile is our core competency. Spectrum has built its entire team and business model around mastering the persuasion and systematic evaluation of these A players who generate significant impact. See extra information on private equity search firms.
Each of the candidates we present to our Clients have the ability to be impactful, strong builders of high performing teams, and true business partners to CEO’s and their Board of Directors. Over 80% of the CEO’s we’ve placed and have gone through our process have hired us to build out their teams in the areas of Accounting, E-Commerce, Engineering, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Marketing, Operations, Product Development, and Sales.
When hiring, give an edge to qualified candidates who have made it through multiple layoff rounds. They’re used to picking up the pieces after a massive layoff and are a better bet to know how to keep the operation moving smoothly. Be clear with them on company plans, and they may start imagining how to fix situations and turn things around. Identify candidates that have a track record of succeeding at things they’ve never done before. While most people can continually succeed in an upward linear fashion by building on prior experience, we are not in a linear period at the moment. The person who can repeatedly succeed in unknown situations is what some companies will need for fresh ideas and reinvention.
