During the search process.

Identifying the right leader often begins with an accurate and reliable assessment of current leadership competencies. During the selection process, we use a highly effective assessment tool that measures behaviors and maps them to a relevant competency model. Considered in combination with other information, valid and reliable assessment data supports a more informed selection process.

For onboarding and/or development.

In some cases, institutions identify an existing leader who could benefit from the personal and/or professional insight gathered from leadership assessment.

Our assessment specialists are trained to give a variety of leadership assessments designed to help individuals better understand their own leadership skills and potential as well as build the skills necessary to develop and lead a high performing team successfully.

Team development.

Leadership teams are more productive and successful when team members respect and learn from the diverse perspectives of the team and understand each other’s styles and approaches.

Individual leadership assessments, aggregated into a team assessment, provide insight into team dynamics. Additionally, the team reports can assess the collective competencies of the team, providing invaluable insight regarding how to better support the team’s productivity and success.
