Assessments

Assessments:

The Leadership Success Group employs skilled Industrial/Organizational psychology consultants who possess considerable training and experience in the use of psychometric assessments.  These in-depth assessments allow us to accurately identify the talents and developmental opportunities of current and potential leaders in the following categories:

  • Individual contributors being considered for their first supervisory positions.
  • Supervisors or team leads being considered for mid-level management roles.
  • Managers being considered for higher level positions, such as Director or VP.
  • VPs being considered for SVP or higher level leadership roles (e.g., CEO).

The purposes for conducting leadership assessments include:

  • Employee Selection – avoiding hiring mistakes by providing comprehensive verified information on candidate performance, fit and potential.
  • Development planning – identifying development needs to focus on, as well as strengths to leverage, in order to help enhance the leaders’, and the organization’s, performance.
  • Career development – planning leaders’ career paths within the organization in order to foster higher levels of engagement and position them for continued success.
  • Succession planning – comparing assessment results in order to determine the ideal candidates for succession in your organization.

Our Tools

At The Leadership Success Group, we use a variety of highly specialized, valid and reliable assessment tools, including:

  • Behavioural-based, structured interviews
  • Personality assessments (we use a range of in-depth tools that require graduate level psychology training to interpret)
  • Leadership style inventories
  • Conflict style inventories
  • Work simulations
  • Cognitive ability and problem solving tests

360° Feedback

In addition to conducting comprehensive leadership development assessments, we also facilitate 360° feedback for individual leaders as well as management teams.  Such multi-rater evaluation tools help us to better understand the impact that a leader’s behaviours and actions have on others, and can be an excellent complement to a more in-depth leadership assessment.
