Welcome to the New KPI: Freedom

Welcome to the New KPI: Freedom

And to the most progressive culture in the recruitment industry. No 9-to-5 office hours, production quotas, or other prehistoric nonsense. Just stellar reputation. Cool peers. Harmony. Laughter. Whether we’re trekking through the snowy Nagano tundra on a Wim Hof adventure or sitting in zazen at Zensho-an Temple to ring in the new year, our tribe is showing the world of executive search how real community happens. Through autonomy and kinship, we change the way headhunters live. And breathe.

Your why.
Driven by ours.®

We operate under the rare belief that our people come first. The mission: to liberate. With us you get the freedom to develop your practice, and a platform tricked out with all the cutting-edge tech a recruitment 007 could wish for. Are you a cosmopolitan suit strutting your Armani stuff downtown? Digital nomad making rain from a Bedouin camp in the Sahara? Whoever and wherever you are, you’ve got the access and support you need to get the deal done. And we’re right there with you from start to close.

At Zensho Agency you’re in business for yourself, but never by yourself.

You subscribe to everything else…
Why not your business?

Online movies, the gym, corporate services – with subscription comes exclusivity and benefits. Why would you accept anything less for your own recruitment practice? For a nominal monthly connection fee, you gain access to our club, where membership brings major return on investment – and not just cash. You earn big in your personal and business life as well. Don’t play a bit part in someone else’s drama. At Zensho Agency you’ll write your own script and cast yourself in the leading role.


Here, lions get their share: 70-90% commission on every deal. Enjoy hearing us roar your victories to the world with proud hearts.


The market’s best AI-driven database, complemented by an integrated suite of apps that free you to work, and source, from anywhere in the world.


Proven, turnkey, plug-and-play system, with personalized branding and social media support. Our award-winning reputation maximizes your success and star power.


Up your game with regular live and online training, seminars and performance labs, and complimentary coaching by our CEO and ICF-credentialed Professional Certified Coach, Robin Doenicke.


Live completely as a member of our dynamic tribe – worldly people with whom you’ll love to hang and grow. Team up. Explore. Forget work-life balance. It’s all one now.


Awaken to it. That’s what happens when you walk through this door painted turquoise, crimson and gold. Imagination is no longer a preview to life. It’s real. You’re the ideal you.

Do the math.

Free laptop. Coffees. Base salary, and you’re being groomed for manager. Why would anyone want to give up all those perks and reimbursements? Because they’re actually just distractions from the secret ledger. That’s life at Company B: the more you crush it, the more they crush you. You’re playing on borrowed money. And the house always wins.


Here you get paid like a boss. Zensho Agency’s astronomical compensation plan reflects the value our recruiters provide their clients and candidates, and everyone who joins our tribe is a partner from day one. Ready to realize your worth?


It’s time to turn the tables. Your deal.

“A rebel is one who lives totally according to his own light, and risks everything else for his ultimate value of freedom.”


Zensho Agency rebels have forged a community that’s unique in the industry. Having cast off the fear that cloaks corporate daily life, we’re free to look ourselves in the mirror and each other in the eye. To be whole. Present. Vibrant and engaged. Our collective resonance awakens a deeper purpose, one that transcends our limited identity as recruiters and takes us beyond the deal to a simple truth: our fulfillment depends on yours.

Zensho Agency is an exclusive, remote-first, technology-driven brokerage leading the global recruitment rebellion. Authentic and present, we’re a tribe that has grown together through a genuine desire for collective success. Including yours. So, why work with us? Because those who enjoy liberation, empowerment, and maximum rewards make the most trusted advisors to the people they serve.


Our freedom. Your potential.®

Values: A message to our awesome tribe

Years from now, you may not remember the particulars of deals you closed at Zensho (or what the returns were). You will remember your colleagues and how it felt to work with them. The imprint you left on the world.

We invited you to join our tribe because you impressed us as someone who shares values intrinsic to our culture. But just to ensure we’re totally on the same page, here they are, spelled out in black and white and trimmed in our corporate colors.

Freedom is Zensho’s central pillar. Beyond the mere state of being free, for us the word carries with it a sense of obligation: “Freedom to…” What follows should define you as a person. Of course, to provide your business community with amazing service, but also to engage and give back to the world. And that’s where Autonomy comes in. Unlike the general implications of self-rule, ours leads not to detachment but to a broad and radical sense of interconnectivity. One that enables each of us to commune with others in infinite ways. Together, these two values empower you like nothing else on earth, and they’re here waiting for you.

So, what do we ask in return?

Transparency means not only having open books, but being one yourself. No secrets or ulterior agendas. It is to share personal and industry information without seeking to leverage it for profit or motivate others in any way. Its cousin, Clarity, is about including precision and context in the communication process. At Zensho, we always try to anticipate the details a fellow partner might need and supply them up front.

Which leads us to…

Collaboration. That is, to cooperate meaningfully. Because only through recognizing individual strengths can we thrive as a whole. For us, collaboration requires presence as we listen and respond, evolving toward a collective goal represented by the name of our charity initiative: Ayni (reciprocity). This can’t exist without Collegiality. How we care for each other and the tribe as a whole, share both opportunity and responsibility with open hearts – that’s what empowers us to excel as a firm.

With these six in place, our seventh value happens all by itself.

Harmony. When your environment manifests balance between all people and things – even forces that oppose each other – life just flows. Living completely becomes a state of being. After all, that’s the very meaning of Zensho.
