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.
