I believe the day has given me a better insight into each individual in the team and I think this will be invaluable in my role as the CEO in harnessing the team’s talents and skills. Lorraine was a great facilitator. She got everyone to open up and created an environment of trust which resulted in productive engagements.”

    Executive Search Testimonials

    We would like to recommend Leadership Talent for superior executive search services. In 2017 Alexkor SOC Ltd retained the services of Leadership Talent, led by Ms Lorraine Mphahlele to search for the Chief Executive Officer as well as the Corporate Services Manager

    This agency handled the assignments with honesty and integrity. We appreciated the professional way they handled both internal and external candidates, the progress reporting as well as the quality report they submitted at the end of the process which demonstrated the detailed fair and transparent manner in which the assignment was handled.

    Leadership Talent managed to attract high calibre candidates, who had not responded to an advert Alexkor SOC Ltd had posted in the Sunday times. Working with them exclusively ensured that we truly partnered with them all the way to assignment completion.

    We recently (2017) retained the services of Leadership Talent to search for the Chief Executive Officer for the Black Business Council.

    We were very impressed with their technical skills regarding the response handling, screening and shortlisting for the position of CEO. Over and above this, Leadership Talent offered four free onboarding coaching sessions for the new CEO, thus helping them settle in their new job, as a value add to us.
    Black Business Council

    We were very happy with the professional service we received from Leadership Talent and highly recommend them to other prospective clients, for the recruitment of senior staff as well as leadership development. In particular, their commitment to the success of our business was truly commendable.
