GoodCitizen is an executive search firm focused on leadership for mission-driven organizations.
Our track record in search is a function of: a time-tested approach to qualifying the leaders, a cross-sector network of responsive relationships, and an experienced team of professionals who care deeply about the work.
It all starts with alignment. We go onsite to meet our clients and connect with their mission, their goals and challenges, and their people. We identify not only professional skills required, but also the interpersonal and cultural dimensions that make for fit. As we move into outreach, we leverage a structured research methodology for identifying relevant leaders. Then we engage the client with regular progress updates, providing visibility into a stage-gated candidate pipeline with assessments relative to core criteria. We partner with clients all the way through interviews, identification of finalists, and the offer process.
Human connectivity. The value we place on building long-term relationships has resulted in a cross-sector social impact network that provides clients with access to the best field of candidates. Our practice leaders have significant reach into areas of recurring focus, and pride themselves on responsive connections who contribute to accurate search outcomes. And our professional research team manages our AI and knowledge assets, with insights on tens of thousands of leaders, to ensure every engagement has the deepest, most relevant pool of candidates.
We understand. Before coming to GoodCitizen, our search professionals worked as EDs and Board Chairs of non-profits, served as members of international NGOs, held government leadership roles, and built for-profit social enterprises. The collective social sector experience embedded in our team drives the right results for our clients, because as practitioners, we have solved challenges in the very areas we now support. And by continuing to invest in social impact experience as we've grown our firm, we are able to engage with the knowledge and pace our clients expect in search and need for their own growth.
