Hiring/Evaluating Leaders for an ESOP (or Avoiding Mis-Hires) 

March 7, 2017 (9:30 am-10:30 am Pacific)

About This Meeting

Executives who will work well in an ESOP environment have a different profile from non-ESOP leaders. Therefore, when hiring for leadership roles, ESOPs must create a different set of criteria by which to evaluate; the standard models do not apply.

This webinar will outline this profile as well as give practical tips on how to interview/evaluate candidates when hiring or promoting a leader.


9:30 AM Hiring/Evaluating Leaders for an ESOP (or Avoiding Mis-Hires) 
Mike Frommelt, Keystone Search
10:30 AM Adjourn
