Mitigating risk and ensuring ROI: Insight for executive selection and leadership development

As an integrated consultancy, we offer a range of value added assessment and profiling services that provide the insight you need to make informed decisions at every stage of the employee lifecycle – from candidate selection and onboarding to development and succession planning. Where organisations benefit most from our insight is in the arena of psychometric and behavioural assessment.

Helping you to get it right

For good or bad, success or failure, your leaders have a direct impact on the performance of your people and organisation. To ensure you can identify and develop the right ones, we offer a range of assessment, profiling and evaluation for:

  • Executive Selection
    Executive Selection
    As part of a selection and on-boarding process our sophisticated personality profiling and psychometric assessment tools offer accurate and predictive insight into a candidate’s personality, emotional intelligence and interpersonal style. We undertake different types of assessment depending on the role, sector and culture. It is a proven approach that enables us to predict a prospective employee’s ability to adapt and develop within your organisation, ensuring a cultural as well as technical-capabilities-based fit.
    This kind of profiling can be an invaluable interview aid for probing possible areas of strength and areas for development. It is also useful within post, too. Being able to predict future performance and fit will help you focus your resources more cost effectively, identifying potential risk as well as earmarking talent for career-development investment.

  • Leadership Development

    Are your leaders confident, passionate, effective? Do they have vision? Are they adaptable? Do they inspire? Can they nurture the talent of others? We get under the skin of your leaders to understand their character and interpersonal style. We’ll explore their emotional intelligence as well as their psychological drivers and triggers. We’ll put a microscope on underlying values and identify an individual’s leadership approach, asking: how does it align with your organisation’s culture and his or her role within it? There is a difference between a true leader and a manager. Your organisation needs both. We’ll identify who’s who, so you can ensure they’re fulfilling their full potential within the right role for them. By identifying behaviours that inhibit the ability to lead we can coach towards shifting mindsets and improving performance. The aim? To develop self-aware, self-directing leaders able to adapt and impact positively whatever the context.
  • Executive Team Development

    Testing adapted to give insight into group dynamics will help you ensure teams are working efficiently and effectively, aligning complementary skill-sets and personalities with project, team and organisational objectives. Just because the choir is singing from the same hymn sheet doesn’t necessarily mean it’s making beautiful music. And whilst each member may be an outstanding soloist, it’s the way those voices blend that creates the magic. From bass to tenor, every voice is needed for the full effect to be felt.
    We put in place clear structures and processes that instil constructive ways of working. An important part of the process is establishing clear criteria by which success can be measured. It’s about blending visionary voices within the leadership of your organisation to create a powerful, united team, with clear strategic objectives, pulling in one clearly defined direction. This is fundamental to organisational success.

Whether it is identifying potential for leadership succession, assessing individual and team performance or ensuring the right appointment to key leadership roles, our objective, systematic approach aligns your people with project, team and, ultimately, organisational goals.
