We distance ourselves from the competition in four key areas:
William Richard is a retained executive search firm with specialty practice areas; we are not a generalist firm. We are committed to and passionate about our structured recruiting approach, which leverages our proprietary Triangle Methodology and unique interviewing technique. Prior to any knowledge of client need, we network daily with current and emerging leaders who are not actively looking for career change, but nonetheless have exceptional capabilities to offer if the precise opportunity arises.
Specialty Search Practice Areas
In contrast with generalist search firms, William Richard developed Specialty Search Practice Areas - understanding the complexities of particular disciplines and our client's corresponding need for an intensified search approach. Listening to our clients we concentrated our resources attaining the depth and breadth of knowledge required to gain access within these disciplines. Again, in contrast with generalist firms, and in service to our client, we continually research our areas of expertise remaining cognizant of its past, aware of its present, and apprised of its emerging trends. Simply put, we understand the maturation of the discipline as well as the individual journey of professionals within it.

Enhancing our specialty search offering is a fluid yet systematic approach to learning that we call Triangle Methodology. Daily, as we network with industry leaders we employ our proprietary Triangle Methodology, which consists of listening to and comprehending expert opinions while intensifying our insight. The insight derived from this process allows William Richard to dynamically participate in increasingly higher level discussions with industry leaders. Our insight serves as the foundation of our ability to provide differentiated value to our client. It enables William Richard to identify and recruit distinctive executives for the specific position critical to our client's success.

Unique Discussion Format
Building on our specialty focus and the insight we've gained from our Triangle Methodology we progress to the current and emerging leaders assessment phase. This phase is not an interview; rather a multiple discussion format during which unbiased, objective discussions are conducted. Because William Richard is not required to disclose the client's name or details of the position, a factual, granular assessment of the potential candidate can be completed, including capabilities, credentials and relevant intangibles. This straightforward communication typically facilitates discovery of personal desires related to career growth for candidates not actively seeking new opportunities (passive candidates).

The result of our structured recruiting approach and the work we do offers our client a value proposition they cannot realize on their own behalf - and a service that no other search firm can equal. Through the synergies of our recruiting approach, we identify and engage passive candidates, not identifiable by typical resource avenues - those used by generalist
firms. With our specialty approach we leverage our Triangle Methodology and dynamic assessment format to discern "commodity" intelligence from the unique, executive capabilities which will enhance your organization's competitive advantage.
