Executive Assessment

Our Executive Assessment service is designed for businesses who need to manage their people risk by understanding more about what makes individuals and teams tick.

Our clients often find themselves asking:

  • “Do we have the right people?”
  • “Are our people in the right jobs?”
  • “Do our people have the competencies needed to perform?”
  • “Do our people match our values?”
  • “How can we get our teams to work better together?”

How we add value

Our Executive Assessment Consultants make it easier for CEO’s, Boards and Chairman to get a clear picture of their executives’ strengths, weaknesses and development opportunities – to then get the best out of them.

Our approach involves going far deeper than the interview process. Understanding what really drives an individual – and their behavioural preferences – can make a significant difference to how they are deployed, motivated, evaluated and incentivised.

By using a range of techniques, including psychometric and ability tests coupled with behavioural interviews our consultants can help you recruit the right people, develop senior executives, rainmakers and industry thought leaders.

Our executive assessments are available as an integral part of the executive search process or as a standalone service.

Candidate Profiling

Many candidates have become accustomed to traditional interviews and as such can come across as being an ideal candidate for an organisation. While it is relatively straight forward to assess technical ability and to check an individual’s track record, without the use of specialist tools, it is more difficult to get a thorough understanding of their personality, leadership ability and how they work under pressure.

How we add value

By using psychometric profiling of candidates, we can provide an informed and objective judgement on a candidate’s interpersonal style, intellectual abilities, personal motivation and fit with the organisation.

By using specialist tools, our consultants can achieve a better understanding of how candidates may behave in a pressurised situation and can therefore probe deeper than is possible by interview alone. Profiling is now a key component of the selection process for senior recruits and an important part of a business’s risk management.

Team Assessment

Finding and attracting the best talent in any industry is only half of the battle. Engaging individuals and integrating them to work as part of your existing team is another matter. Our Team Assessments can be carried out with existing teams, newly created teams or prior to team construction.

How we add value

By assessing each individual team member, we can build up a combined capability picture which is a powerful tool to build a team assessment from. It clearly shows the culture of the team, how relationships are likely to work, how to identify any potential individual conflicts within the team and how the work will be managed and delivered. We can also identify where a certain skill set may add value to or enhance performance.

When all this is brought together it provides a powerful base from which to build stronger, more effective teams which assists the business in delivery of its goals. The output of this type of analysis can be transformational.
