Having a vision of the future and being able to turn that vision into a strategy and subsequent execution are important factors for success. Just like adaptability (AQ) and broad and sustainable personal development. Developments are moving very rapidly, meaning that lifelong learning is a necessity for individuals and organizations alike. That applies to us too. These are essential requirements for customers and for ourselves if we are to succeed in the world of tomorrow.
We want to show our clients that The Executive Network is the executive search agency that helps them to keep pace in today’s world of rapid, relentless change. We believe that all these changes mean that we have an even more important role to play for our clients. The challenge is to show them that this is the case. What matters is that they have the right executive on board at the right time to realize their plans.
Only agencies that are able to embrace this role, in combination with using new technology such as big data, VR, AI and neuroscience, will be able to grow in the long term.
We expect our consultants to continue to work on their own development in order to play this role for our clients. This will often mean that we need to be proactive in helping our clients to find solutions at an early stage, taking on the role of advisor and consultant. Big data will play an important role in this advisory phase and be crucial in predicting the success of our candidates in their role. In some cases, we may even be able to predict what our clients need before they realise it themselves.
The ultimate goal of The Executive Network is to help our clients to succeed. By extension, this also means contributing to the success of ‘The Netherlands PLC’.
We see it as our mission to forge links with managers and directors (executive and non-executive) in those markets and sectors in which we are active. Based on the relationship of trust that we build with them, we aim to:
- Inspire managers about how the world is changing in all kinds of different areas;
- Help them to develop a vision for themselves and the organizations they are responsible for;
- Enable them to access knowledge and the most relevant expertise from our network;
- Enable them to access the best people who can make the difference in these times of change.
Our Company Values
I enjoy connecting with others. My openness and genuine interest in other people help me build an honest and close relationship in which everyone is able to express themselves openly, in which there is mutual acceptance and freedom, and in which we can trust and make allowances for each other. This enables me to work with my team on growth and business success, resulting in (even more) satisfied clients. The power to connect ultimately increases your impact on the other party, your client, your colleagues and your organization! .
Motivated and enthusiastic
Being motivated and enthusiastic ultimately depends on the commitment, charisma, passion and inspiration with which I approach my work. I am dedicated to achieving my goals and those of TEN. I continue to give 100% at all times and want to achieve success both internally and externally. .
I work hard to achieve the best results and always seek to be better, more surprising and more creative than the last time. I take a genuine interest in my relationships with my colleagues, candidates and clients, and I stay closely involved so that I know what is going on and which expectations are at play. I am open to feedback and the possibility that things can be done better. I am dependable and wherever possible I try to go the extra mile to exceed expectations. Quality is an important value for me in everything I do. .
Shaping the future
I want to contribute to a successful future for those around me. This applies to our clients (the people and the organization), our candidates and my colleagues. I myself embody an image of the future; I approach new developments critically, but positively and with curiosity. I am unafraid to embrace new approaches and opportunities. I use my insight to inspire and challenge others and to make the most of new prospects, so that the people and organizations around me can grow and flourish. .
