AHEAD is an expert in executive search, with a reputation for delivering when other methods have failed. We seek out candidates who combine intellect, energy and integrity with the appropriate professional skills to add real value.

Headquartered in Brussels and part of an extensive global network.

Our work includes seamless international search as well as national or local solutions.

Our methodology is based on a thorough understanding of our clients' strategy, organizational structure, culture and thought processes.

Although over 90% of our work is executive search, we can also call on press or internet initiatives if it is appropriate.

Throughout our dynamic search process we ensure an in-depth and meticulous assessment of both the relevant market sectors and the potential candidates within them. 


This includes analysis of candidates’ softer skills as well as relevant experience and intellect. Coupled with our knowledge of the client, this process ensures that only the most suitable and best qualified individuals are introduced.

Related services include management audit, assessment and consulting projects (eg. diversity).

Executive Coaching

You probably know AHEAD as your executive search partner for senior and middle management positions. However, we have also developed a complementary expertise in Executive Coaching. 


The Executive Coaching provided by Nicolas Goffaux is based on John Withmore’s GROW approach :

1. G for GOAL

What is my objective? How can I evaluate whether the objective is partially/completely reached?

2. R for REALITY

What is the reality, the context, what weighs heavy on me, what are my emotions, my hang-ups and my strengths, …?


What are the possible tracks, the alternatives … what can I do to reach my objective?

4. W for WILL

What do I decide to put in place, when, how can I measure it?

During the coaching sessions, thought models and fundamental beliefs are revealed. 
Coachees realise that those thoug
ht models and beliefs can be supporting or limiting. They learn that they have the choice. 

They move forward with the Coach, but they find their own tracks, those convenient for them. Coachees act on what is in their area of influence (often larger than they would think).
The objective of the coaching is defined and developed with the Coachee, without losing sight of the link with the employer in the case of a corporate coaching.
