No, this is not gospel. But, for 2013 companies can think about meeting their goals through the focus and power of one word. And, no, we do not know your word. But, we just read a Fast Company post by Wall Street Journal reporter, Jon Gordon. He noted the following: “My friends Dan Britton and Continue Reading »
In our world of media and entertainment, we might be abuzz about Lisa Hsai or theAudience – BUT The dichotomy of social media executives is based on one fact: what makes you a great social media person does not make you a great socializer in person. Tweeting from behind the wall of an electronic device Continue Reading »
In a recent post entitled, “Not Enough People Dug Digg” we are reminded that content is king. In the end, why does having reader’s vote on what news goes on the front page not work?

Our Future Performance Process
We find executives who deliver business results today and tomorrow
In the world of media and entertainment change is constant.
In business, there is no time for time outs. It requires executives that can deliver results today and have the organization ready to seize what is next. It is why ML Search Partners developed the Future Performance Process.
Network: Most search firms call on an impressive network of senior management contacts based on years of recruiting experience. We go well beyond that. In a converged world of technology, media and entertainment, new executives can come from many source environments.
Measure: While we create a complete candidate profile in determining what they have done and how they did it, we create “what if” scenarios. In those scenarios, we measure a candidate’s ability to be adept at adapting to a changing environment – an environment that must amalgamate the latest technology, with breakthrough content to deliver audiences, business solutions and profits in perpetuity.
Fit: As most hiring executives have discovered, having the right resume is not enough. We transcend what is on paper to find the people who can perform. This happens through our interviewing process where we discover what a person has done, why they have done it, and what makes them tick.
We then analyze a candidate’s current and future performance capabilities with our client’s corporate culture. Our analysis enables us to determine an executive’s fit within a corporate culture. It helps us answer the key question: is this an environment where he or she can perform?
On Boarding: ML Search always suggests clients plan an on-boarding process for an executive. This includes a thorough understanding of reporting structure, roles and responsibilities, short and long term. It is a final step to assure we have created a partnership that works for the candidate, the hiring executive and the organization.
