Finding the ultimate CEO is the biggest challenge for companies - De Tijd
The "ease of choice" in vacancies for top executives is greater than ever. 'The focus of the headhunter has shifted from detecting candidates to selecting she or he who is best able to shape complexity within the ever-changing context,' said Frank De Mey, partner of Accord Group.
'The world is changing faster and faster and so is our industry,' says Frank De Mey of Accord Group, a leadership advisory organization with significant expertise in filling top vacancies and leadership roles.
'The rise in prosperity has been lowering the threshold to study for several decades. As a result, there are more and more candidates aspiring to top positions, including the role of CEO. On the other hand, there are increasingly higher expectations because the complexity of those positions has increased enormously.'
