What are the core skills of every Essensys Interim Manager
Our entire recruitment process is fully tailored to your needs and expectations, and the Essensys Advisor will keep in touch throughout the entire process to ensure thorough follow-up. Still, there are some core skills that you may expect with any Executive Interim Manager we put forward, no matters what your specific circumstances involve.
Flexibility and the ability to adapt
For Interim Managers, every assignment is a new adventure. Each company is unique in so many ways, and to them this is part of the fun/challenge. Flexibility and adaptability are in Interim Managers’ DNA, and that’s vital to your success. It will allow them to swiftly read the culture of your company, understand its processes and work with what you have, while successfully performing the job!
A thirst for improvement and change management skills
If an Interim Manager isn’t looking to tangibly improve your business’s processes and performance, then odds are they’re not actually an Essensys Interim Manager. Enabling improvement and implementing change are key to most interim management assignments, and lie at the heart of their core skills.
Any Executive Interim Manager worth their salt will inevitably contribute to your long-term success with their boundless desire not only to improve your business processes and culture, but also to add to their own skillset and experience by fully immersing themselves in your business and its particular challenges and opportunities. Temporary management, but for permanent results!
Strategic thinking comes with the territory for any manager. Interim Managers, however, take this to another level: the raison d’être of their work means that they must be able to analyze and implement strategies in often exceptional and especially challenging settings. They are well equipped to see through the fog of crises affecting businesses and draw up clear and impactful roadmaps, across a wide range of industries and circumstances.
Their strategizing goes beyond just solving a crisis or growing your business: it also focuses on how to maximize their own impact, and foster long-term operational excellence within your company.
Ultimately, every profile is unique, and will be more or less suited to different assignments. These three skills, however – flexibility and adaptability, a yearning to achieve improvement, and exceptional strategic capabilities – are common denominators you will find in all Essensys Interim Managers.
