We help you find your next great leader who will take your organization to the next level.

NLP offers support in four (4) key talent areas:


Retained Search

NLP provides a unique and effective approach to recruiting, assessing, selecting and placing top leadership talent and “A Players”. We find talent in a wide variety of industries who have the experience and skills to drive an accelerated pace of business transformation and results. We know what these individuals look like and, importantly, know where to go to find them. We can quickly discern those who can deliver sustainable breakthrough results repeatedly, not just talk about them.


Interim Leadership

If you have gaps in your management team, NEXT LEVEL Partners can help. NLP maintains a stable of experienced, high-performance leaders ready to fill short- and medium-term assignments critical to driving transformational change in your organizations. Interim management can provide temporary critical skills and bridge the gap to a permanent hire. Typical positions include: 

  • General Management
  • Operations Leader
  • Lean / Continuous Improvement Leader
  • Supply Chain Leader
  • S&OP Leader
  • Project Management Leader

Our interim management services have helped dozens of clients fill gaps with pre-qualified, operations leaders who have years of Lean know-how that complements their functional expertise. By providing associates with critical skills, we can help you keep your operations moving forward while you’re searching for your next great leader.


Leadership Coaching

NLP can provide personalized coaching sessions with senior leaders of your organization to help them learn how to best support their teams to drive transformational change. Our coaches are former leaders of high-performance organizations who can help clients apply tools and processes in their areas of expertise to get reliable and immediate results. Our experienced knowledge on how to get the best transformational results from your team is a truly differentiated advantage available from NLP.

In addition to personalized coaching, we also offer structured leadership training for senior leaders driving transformational change. This executive leadership training is ideal for organizations adopting Strategy Deployment and Lean as the foundational elements of their business. In addition, we offer structured training for front-line supervisors looking to improve their leadership skills while leading in a Lean environment. 


Talent Process Development

The right organization structure and the right people are vital to the attainment of a company’s strategic objectives.  Most companies, however, leave this vital element of long-term world-class performance to chance, rather than driving it with the same process rigor they employ to run their business on a daily basis.

We have proven expertise is developing rigorous and practical processes that will ensure the organization is properly aligned to execute its strategic objectives, and drive it to build a deep bench of top-talent on an on-going basis. We will work with you to develop custom processes that are right for your company.

NLP can help develop more sophisticated talent processes including but not limited to:

Diligence / New Acquisition Talent Assessment – rapidly assessing the leadership capabilities of the critical people needed to drive Value Creation plans.

Talent Acquisition – building out the core processes necessary to define roles and find talent internally or externally to fill critical roles.

Critical Talent Retention – ensuring your technical and leadership talent remain and flourishes.

Succession & Readiness Planning – creating a plan to have “bench strength” and a pipeline full of talent.

Engagement / Change Management – measuring and directing increased engagement in the business and the transformational changes occurring in it.
