Visionary. Educator. Innovator.
You live to lead people and organizations to the next level. You relish the idea of designing and executing a strategy designed to help a financially stable, high-performing organization become stronger, more innovative and more missional. Your personal faith compels you to serve in a way pleasing to God, open to the Holy Spirit and mindful of others. You’re a natural leader and inspire excellence from your team, colleagues and stakeholders. You’re highly skilled at engaging, influencing and connecting – bottom line – you can communicate vision and build trust.
Your values compel you to bring your best to every situation – no matter how challenging. You’re committed to growing people to be the best they can be; understanding and solving existing and future problems; raising the bar and setting the pace. You’re a great balance between obsessing over important key performance indicators, and thinking laterally to solve problems with creative solutions.
People describe you as having the ‘It’ factor and you generally become the ‘go-to' person on any team. Bottom line, you can provide the ‘Professional Proof' to back up your bold claims of excellence in educational innovation and your ego doesn't interfere with your efficacy.

We then meet face-to-face with you to flush out your OCP further and get to know you on a personal level. If following this both parties see a great fit for the role in mind, we then introduce you to our client to go through their interview and hiring process.
