Educators’ Collaborative provides the commitment and flexibility necessary to make your search successful. Our consultants know through experience what it takes to run a successful school and how to work effectively with boards of trustees. We are dedicated to a search process that not only identifies the right candidate for a school but also positions the appointee and the school for a smooth and successful transition.
Our collaborative approach is with you from the start. We work together as a firm to select the right consultants for your particular school and need. In conjunction with the initial visit to the school to get a feel for your culture and meet with as many stakeholders as possible, we develop an electronic survey to be sent to all constituents. Our preliminary work is very important, as it allows our partners to assist your school in preparing for the search and gives us insight into your school’s unique culture and characteristics that will help us recruit and present the best candidates.
Once the strategy is in place, your consultants go to work to identify potential candidates for your position. This is where our collaboration really shines. Our extensive database of prospective candidates gives us access to highly qualified candidates across the globe.
After creating an ideal pool of candidates for your position, your consultants conduct interviews with all potential candidates, thoroughly review their written materials and check references. This allows the Search Committee to be presented with the most qualified group from which to select.
Consultants will guide the Search Committee through the process of narrowing down the candidate pool and identifying the candidate of choice.
This step, our consultants agree, is central to a successful search. Aiding our clients in the transition of new leadership is a hallmark of our services. Supporting our schools and their new leaders in a smooth transition of leadership is vital to the success of the process.
We knew from the very first day that we were working with consummate professionals. I cannot say enough to express our respect for the entire team at Educators’ Collaborative.
