Who we are
From our own managerial experience we know that professional expertise and leadership skills as well as employees' socio-emotional credentials are capable of delivering significant competitive advantages: the lifeblood of successful companies.
The focus is on sourcing candidates with the suitable personality and charisma, training them and developing their skills, and ensuring that they are able to make a committed contribution on a day-to-day basis and lead the teams assigned to them as effectively as possible. This is the key to turning individuals into the team players that every company needs in pursuit of sustained growth.
It is a challenge we embrace with unparalleled passion – as an owner-run consulting firm for personnel recruitment and HR development as well as a facilitator in the field of change management. Since 1995. Nationwide. Around the globe.
We know the market in which we operate and have an intimate understanding of candidates' expectations – a winning combination while conducting searches with pinpoint accuracy. Attention to detail and close dialogue are the key to our success.
What you see is what you get. We will never make false promises to you or our candidates. Integrity is our hallmark.
The direct route to skilled, motivated and perfect-fit potentials
Are you looking for employees and managers who are prepared to go the extra mile, who fully embrace their role within your company, who are aware of their potential and who are keen to harness their energy and skills in the best interests of the company?
As a Certified Executive Recruitment Consultant, we have established ourselves as trusted personnel finders, sparring partners and solution specialists – driven by the desire to secure the services of suitable managers and professionals for our clients. Applying optimised processes and state-of-the-art search methods as well as generation-specific communication and targeted suitability diagnostics, we will select high-calibre candidates who are the right fit with regard to your company and your corporate culture.

Our expertise is mainly centred around the automotive supply sector, the metal forming/processing industry, the mechanical and plant engineering market and the automation technology sector.
Explore the outstanding possibilities associated with a slightly different approach to consulting that includes risk mitigation, money-back guarantee and 24-month guarantee of reappointment among many other unique features.
As a member of Bundesverband Deutscher Unternehmensberater e.V., we manage the entire process chain of HR recruitment in compliance with DIN 33430 and observe the principles of proper and qualified HR recruiting promulgated by the BDU.
Recognise your potentials,
drive your success!
It is the people within your company who hold the keys to success or failure. Various specialist studies have shown that a large percentage of employees lack motivation or are actively unmotivated. This issue needs to be addressed.
To do so, we apply a proven method of suitability diagnostics. It is incumbent on management to determine the true potential of employees and applicants. We will compile a confidential report for you in order to set out the findings of our suitability assessment.
Performance and motivation inventory
Performance and personality tests
Career recommendation and projection of job success
Diagnosis of underachievement
We provide resource- and person-specific coaching within the meaning of the Solution-focused Brief Therapy according to Steve de Shazer, in combination with the GROW model developed by John Whitmore, while observing the quality standards promulgated by the ICF International Coach Federation. We are co-pilots committed to assisting our coachees in finding creative solutions. In support of top management, we act as Business Sherpas to ensure effective HR development.
The task of adjusting attitudes, viewpoints and, ultimately, behaviour, is often considered an impossible mission – even if, as a person of responsibility, one has recognised the importance of improving specific skills and characteristics. Our COACH concept is designed to facilitate the personal coaching process.
We will create an environment that is conducive to effective collaboration.
As part of an interview aimed at determining your goals, we will discuss the rationale behind or the focal points of the specific process as well as outlining each other's expectations and tasks, agreeing key activities and deciding on the form of cooperation.
We will establish orientation with regard to the issues in question and determine your current reality.
You will be given ad hoc feedback with regard to specific results. This is followed by further discussions centred around motivation, challenges and conflict in the context of your personal development issues.
We will analyse your issues and environment, in addition to drawing up options for you.
The focus is on eight steps aimed at initiating the development process: from identifying your personality and analysing strengths/opportunities to transferring control.
We will promote change and take a close look at your Four Ws.
What you can learn from others; what has previously prevented you from pursuing change; what your mental state and concerns are at present; what you can actively do to achieve change and combat inner saboteurs.
We will set out specific consequences.
The focus is on drawing up your plan of action and agreeing priorities for future development, determining individual milestones/results and addressing the issue of personal emotions. We will also agree systematic reviews to cement and enshrine these aspects once the process has been completed. You will have the option of accessing our telephone hotline free of charge for a period of three to six months.
Stumbling and falling are part of it,
do not want to get up is prohibited
We are your Personnel Sherpas, ready to join you on your trek through the deserts and mountains of personnel recruiting and through the undergrowth of HR and organisation development. As a team, systematically and with strategic intent. And with hands-on pragmatism.
Embracing the spirit of the famous Sherpas, who embark on major expeditions through the Himalayas, LEWAN ASSOCIATES work in scalable teams that bring together the skills needed to drive your projects forward. We offer executives the professional support they require in their positions of responsibility. We are thoroughly committed to an agile approach and will help management to tackle any HR-related challenge that arises – drawing on our demonstrable process expertise and finely honed specialist knowledge.
The process of continuous change and development within an organisation is a source of considerable opportunity. At the same time, it exerts tremendous pressure on companies. The state of flux within the business environment – together with growing complexity – makes enormous demands on companies and their employees.
It is imperative that internal resources are managed diligently so that as much energy as possible can be channelled into new processes when such projects take priority. In some cases the route taken in pursuit of newly defined goals is very short, while in other cases it is much longer. Milestones can quickly become stumbling blocks, particularly if specific measures, timelines and communication efforts are out of sync.
You can rely on our far-reaching management and consulting expertise as well as our highly developed analytical methods and a thoroughly professional approach based on competence, integrity and respect. We offer you a broad skillset together with openness, the desire to get things done and a passion for HR solutions tailored precisely to your requirements and expectations.
We are committed to providing our clients with an end-to-end service aimed at filling specific vacancies, while also offering candidates the professional support they need. With the help of our proprietary database of candidates and other resources, we conduct an extensive search for each client project. Our consultants work in full compliance with ethical standards when dealing with both clients and candidates. For candidates, this means that all information is considered strictly confidential and can only be passed on once a candidate has provided his/her express permission.
