Key Hires






Our retained search service, geared to be as straightforward as possible: we’ll help you scope and define the role that’ll increase the power and performance of your team, and describe the perfect person for it - and then we’ll find them for you. 

A nimble, no-nonsense search service that includes role scoping, hiring process design, candidate archetyping, screening conversations, a diverse pool of applicants, insights about your talent brand, and hands-on decision-making support and perspective all the way through a signed offer letter. We’ll even help you design onboarding so your key hire is up and running in record time.

Our searches are conducted from the core principle that diverse & inclusive teams are essential to strong organizational culture and performance.

People Projects




Our consulting practice, which tackles major People projects that upgrade your organization by improving the way you find, hire, develop, manage, support, and inspire your people.

Examples of these large, multi-month projects include building (or re-building) People departments from scratch, assembling roadmaps for People or Talent teams, crafting methods to increase the diversity, equity, and inclusion factors of your team, designing re-orgs, or upgrading components like performance reviews, recruiting operations, and hiring systems.

Perfect for execs who have sizable projects in mind - or don’t know where to begin but know that they should - to upgrade aspects of their people operations, recruiting, culture, HR systems, or all of the above.

We conduct our work as strong advocates for diverse, equitable, and inclusive teams. For projects that are exclusively and explicitly crafted as diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives, we can refer you to trusted partners.




A trusted, confidential coaching relationship for founders, CEOs, and executives who want to see themselves and their teams achieve breakthrough performance. Equal parts sparring partner, co-strategist, and decision-making sounding board, aimed at asking the right questions, challenging unseen assumptions, and working through your options on major decisions. Conducted from the outside perspective of a seasoned People executive, to help you navigate the turbulence involved in building a knockout team.

The service includes multiple monthly calls to delve into your executive strengths & strategy, org design, and team management, as well as bi-weekly calls with your team, and feedback on memos and other deliverables. This service also unlocks access to referrals to consultants, creative talent, and other specialists in the Formidable network, as well as discounted rates on Key Hires and People Projects work.

Perfect for founders/execs who don’t have a cofounder-level partner inside the organization. Also available for folks who are new to being Head of People, Director of Talent, VP People or similar, and is seeking support to become the most powerful version of that role.

“Formidable’s process helped me find clarity around what we needed. Nathaniel is a great listener and asked insightful questions in order to deeply understand our company culture. I would absolutely recommend Formidable to anyone who is new to hiring and interested to learn the philosophy, strategy, and practicality around it.”

New Harvest was growing and Isha Data, Executive Director, was ready to hire an internal executive lead who could manage the team and the organization’s performance, so that Isha could focus on fundraising, resourcing, and evangelism for the organization.
Formidable worked with Isha to scope & frame the role, and design an effective and compelling hiring process. We delivered over a dozen diverse candidates, and were happy to place Dr. Paige Wilcoxson as New Harvest’s Chief Operating Officer.
