About Us

Kingsley Gate Partners is transforming executive search with the introduction of Synchronous Fit. This framework focuses on improving the Accuracy, Velocity, Transparency and Accountability of our executive searches. Every one of our consultants that serve your needs is an owner of the firm and, therefore, carries the responsibility of the brand on their shoulders. These experienced consultants utilize Synchronous Fit to fuse their credible expert insight with science and technology with one objective in mind–to ensure a lasting fit between you and our placed candidates.

How do we achieve this objective? We first apply the science to our client before we apply it on our candidates. Athena, an online structured interview, is coupled with an Attribute Selector Tool to assist our consultants to rate the candidates on the leadership attributes that you seek in your ideal candidate.

We ensure a lasting fit by arming our experienced search consultants around the world with state-of-the-art cloud based mobile tools. Our frameworks and technology are designed by renowned experts in their fields and are regularly updated to maintain cadence with technology developments. Our proprietary Search Management System–Galaxy–is a mobile-first system with data residing in the cloud.

As our client, you can stay in touch with us any time you want. We have made the weekly status call a redundant exercise by providing Live Status Reports on your mobile device 24X7 through ClientSuite. This interactive mobile portal permits you to check on the status of the search from your phone at anytime and anywhere.

All of the above result in dramatic improvement of these four factors – ACCURACY, VELOCITY, TRANSPARENCY & ACCOUNTABILITY.

What is Synchronous Fit?

Synchronous Fit™ is a proprietary Kingsley Gate Partners® framework that results in a perfect fit between client and candidate. It complements the objectivity of an exclusive scientific profiling and assessment process with the deep human insight of expert search consultants. We believe that it is unwise to measure the hand (the candidate) before measuring the glove (the client). The first step of Synchronous Fit™ is the development of the Synchronous Fit Profile™ Agreement.

A Synchronous Fit Profile™ is created prior to the commencement of the search using simple-to-use scientific tools that result in a template that details desired skills and attributes in the ideal candidate. A predetermined rating system is established through an iterative discovery process between the search consultant and the client. The Synchronous Fit Profile™ is used to scientifically measure the candidate’s likelihood to succeed in the role.

Using the predetermined rating system, the search consultant fuses expert human insight and scientific assessment with quantitative referencing to arrive at a score for each candidate called the Fit Quotient (FQ). This helps the client in stack ranking the candidates from a holistic point of view as opposed to being swayed by either a strong resume or a dynamic personality. A high FQ results in a lasting successful fit.
