Role Visioning

Our Role Visioning process and Success Outcome Design first allows us to become an extension of your organization by gaining a thorough understanding of its operations, culture, and growth objectives.

This key information serves as a roadmap during our Covert Discovery process with potential candidates.

Covert Discovery

The targeted outreach of the Covert Discovery process helps Y Scouts locate and meet with top C-suite candidates in your industry.

Without revealing specifics about your organization or the role, we have discussions with the candidates that allow them to speak openly and honestly about their experience, successes, passions, and future aspirations.

Y Scouts Leadership Model

The Y Scouts Leadership Model: Learn Relentlessly, Develop Others, and Drive Results

When leaders uphold these ideals, it allows them to feel like they’re fulfilling a greater purpose. And when that sense of gratitude and fulfillment is achieved, they’re inspired to help others achieve the same thing. Following this framework helps create a cycle of positivity and purpose that facilitates the growth of leaders, employees, and the business as a whole.
