We want to earn the right to be your outsourced recruiting department. Because we place leaders in every level in an organization, you can focus on growth, while we focus on providing the right talent. We want to be your strategic partner, keeping a finger to the pulse of your culture, helping you think for your future growth.
Our clients value people, invest in people, and create cultures where people flourish!
The most important thing we do is select the RIGHT companies to serve. We start by meeting with your executive team to establish a company profile. This helps us begin the process of identifying your company’s business strategy and cultural identity, allowing us to build an accurate position profile that acts as our bullseye for meeting your hiring needs.
Impact Revenue Impact People Impact Culture
Our recruitment and selection process is relational over transactional. We want to know who you are beyond simply your resume. Along the way you will have the opportunity to take our leadership and core competency assessments which help us determine whether you are a good fit for one of our companies. Our unique process provides you the freedom to share your story on a personal level.
Character Personality Skills/Competencies
We produce a full Candidate Overview for each applicant that moves to the final stage - the client interview. This overview captures information from each stage of the selection process. This includes their resume, FireSeeds Leadership Application, identity assessments, as well as other key performance indicators. The Candidate Overview is designed to give clients a full and holistic profile of a FireSeeds qualified future leader.
The FireSeeds Leadership Application is designed to help a candidate revisit past leadership experiences. We evaluate the capacity of a leader by understanding how they have previously led individuals or teams. Identifying both the highlights and developmental trials within our candidate’s story is a key part to determining if they will be a fit to fill a given leadership position. Finding servant leaders who have a genuine desire to invest in others is the secret sauce.
We are passionate about helping our candidates understand their unique personality and gift mix. We have each candidate take identity assessments so we can determine if their strengths and natural preferences match the responsibilities of a position. We believe a leader must know themselves well to maximize their impact on the teams they lead.
Before we decide to meet our candidates face-to-face, they will complete an online video interview. This allows us to see and experience the candidate as they answer impromptu questions that appear on the screen. Candidates are able to complete this step in the process on their computer, smartphone, or tablet from anywhere in the world.
Our online application gets your FireSeeds experience started.

We have been through this exercise with many clients who are amazed at the dollar amount they have spent and continue to spend on under producing hires. In most cases the miss hire of a mid level manager was at a minimum cost of $130,000 or more when comparing a bad to great hire.
Back to Why Fireseeds
“If we get the right people on the bus, the right people in the right seat, and the wrong people off the bus, then we’ll figure out how to take it someplace great.”
Jim Collins - Good To Great
All great business decisions result in measurable ROI! Most companies first think of cutting cost, improving efficiencies but few ask “what if I had better leaders in my key positions?” What would that do to the bottom line? We ask clients to apply real metrics to this question.
We call this: the good vs. bad vs. great hire
How do you measure the return on your investment as you decide between different opportunities. Is it purely financial? Is money enough? We work directly with companies that provide environments of purpose, significance, encouraging cultures and desire to develop you into a great leader.
Your career doesn’t have to be just a job
The steps and actions taken in the ﬁrst 100 days of your new career are critical in setting you on a trajectory of success. Our placed candidates have the opportunity to experience 100 days of post-hire transitional follow up, designed speciﬁcally to help ease the transition and set up for growth and development as a leader within the company!
Our clients are drawn to us because of our passion for leader development. The companies we serve have a culture that intentionally develops their leaders.
FireSeeds attracts candidates who desire to grow into positions of influence. The clients we serve have a track record of providing exciting career paths for our leaders.
Integrity must be a foundational value for the companies we serve. We only partner with clients who have a track record of doing the right thing.
The FireSeeds process was exciting and challenging. Working with their team was a pleasure.
