IES was the first company formed to assist independent schools in their search for teachers and leaders. Today, we bring affordable, professional quality retained search and trusted advisor services to schools, colleges, and mission-driven non-profit organizations. 
We take pride in connecting our clients with the leaders they need.

Chess Board

The IES difference means each search is designed with our clients in mind - no two organizations are the same nor are any two IES searches. Our purposefully small size allows our institutions and organizations to receive the attention they need during critical transition periods.

A trusted adviser assists and supports organizational leaders and governing boards through:

  • Assessing the Health of the School Culture

  • Executive Leadership Coaching

  • Governance Retreats for Boards of Trustees

  • Campaign counsel and support

  • Goal setting, Contracts, and Leadership Evaluation

  • Leadership Team Assessment and Improvement

  • Strategic & Crisis Communications Support

  • On-going Counsel and Planning

Chess Pieces

Let us help you make the right moves.
