As the founder of a startup, you probably have a lot of great ideas and not enough leadership in place to carry them out. Although it can be hard for an entrepreneur to give up full control of his or her product, with many start-up leaders becoming the CEOs of their own companies for this reason, many startup founders stand to benefit greatly from hiring a leadership team.
According to Inc. Magazine, "being in charge is not necessarily every entrepreneur's strong suit." Entrepreneurs tend to be more skilled in generating ideas and responding to public demand and economic trends, but often falter when it comes to creating structures and processes to regulate the operation of a business. Hiring a CEO from outside the company can be a good strategic move in that it frees you up to focus on what you do best rather than getting dragged down by management tasks as your company grows.
Convincing top executives to join startups is becoming easier as more startups are becoming wildly successful and the boundary between a startup and a traditional business is blurring. However, recruiting executives for startups is still a larger task than most founders are equipped to take on by themselves. Because they lack an HR department and any internal recruiting resources, startup founders in particular can benefit from executive search consultants like YES Partners to help build their management team. We have the expertise and connections necessary to find the right candidate for your startup's particular needs.
