NGL International
New Generation Leadership

It is our mission to assist a new generation of leaders in their quest towards success as they steer businesses and society towards a more equitable, inclusive and sustainable future.

We are here to help these leaders in forming effective teams through Executive Search and to accommodate them in their professional and personal development through our Executive Coaching program.

New Generation Leadership is about a certain attitude towards life within our social context. It is inclusive, connected and passionate and it embraces continuous transformation. It is free of age, status or position.

NGL International is dedicated to supporting a new generation of leaders in their quest by providing them with expert advice on people issues, leadership and personal development. In doing so, we are unconventionally effective: we don’t tell leaders what they want to hear, but what they need to know. Our approach is inspired by a profound sense of idealism: we combine high standards of behaviour with honesty and dignity and we strive for diversity by fostering mutual respect and an appreciation of differences.

Critical success factors

Holistic approach

We look at each case from a broad perspective. Executive search cannot be seen as separate from organizational purpose and improvement, career development and individual impact. Which is why our assessment comprises the organization, its environment, the team and the candidate. It’s all about getting the full view – a constructive and critical approach to both the company and the candidate.

Diversity as imperative

In today’s world diversity is absolutely essential, every organization has to be an ecosystem of talent and quality. The richer this professional habitat, the more agile and resilient the company. We don’t maintain a separate Diversity Practice.
Diversity is an essential part of our work, be it in Search or Consultancy.

Candidates have priority

The candidates deserve special attention – before, during, and after the selection process. When addressing the question of putting “the right person in the right place”, the secret of success lies not in the place, but in the person, as part of the team.

Intensive, long term collaboration

We stand for sustainable commitment and lasting results. Temporary solutions do not serve companies or candidates. NGL International does not chase down once-off vacancies but is instead an expert partner who keeps a critical eye on long term goals.
