An individual’s fit into the organization is critical in their long-term success. Whether changing the organization, promoting an individual to another role or recruiting from outside, the use of assessments reduces risk.
The assessment we use as an integral part of our search process is available as a separate service. With it, clients can understand how individuals fit specific positions and their organization’s culture; these tools do not identify the “best people” but the “people who best fit.”
These proprietary assessment tools, which we have been using for more than 15 years, provide insight into an individual’s style, motivation and brainpower. Made up of five components, each is independently valuable and combined provide a comprehensive understanding of the individual. These same components can be used to identify what is ideal in a specific job. Fit, as well as any gaps that might exist, become obvious when the individual is compared with the job. This information is critical for selection as well as establishing support to ensure an individual’s success.
Successful organizations have long believed that effective leaders are the difference in business performance, and have actively sought ways to enhance the success of their senior leadership team. A strong team that can quickly react to changing opportunities is a competitive advantage, critical in today’s global environment. Assessment of senior leaders as well as high-performing, mid-career executives provides the insight that is helpful in making the right people decisions. Helping you develop an accurate understanding of each individual, as well as the collective strengths of the senior team, are services that we offer.
In situations as straightforward as a specific hiring decision, or as intricate as how to enhance the management team’s effectiveness, we have the ability to provide the framework for an organization’s ongoing selection and development efforts. Whether it is cultural change, assimilation of acquired organizations, rapid growth, turnarounds or a strategic change in direction, this assessment process helps organizations better understand their leadership capabilities, strengths and gaps. The result is understanding where future leadership will come from, and what needs to be done today to be prepared.
We offer clients the opportunity to take advantage of our knowledge and experience to support their decision-making process concerning candidates they have sourced. This can range from us administering and interpreting our Assessment Tool to telephone screening candidates to participating in an in-depth face-to-face interview. We customize this to whatever level of service our client prefers.
