We have decades of leadership analysis and benchmarking behind us, so we know a future leader when we see one—and can also tell you who is ready for the next step today. We measure for four things:
- Performance. How effective are your leaders right now and who are your ‘A’ players?
- Hiring or promotion. Do you have an internal leader who can step up and tackle today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities? If you don’t, we can build a plan to close those talent gaps or help you hire someone new.
- Potential. Who looks ready to step into a more challenging role? We seek out that potential and let you know who has the capacity to grow and how fast.
- Fit. There’s a difference between being a good leader and being right for a particular role. We make sure potential leaders have the skillset and personality to do their best work in key positions.
Our leadership assessments come in many forms—from high volume or high tech self-assessments via Korn Ferry Assess, to customized, personal evaluations led by our consultants.
To give you the full picture, we look at the whole person. That means understanding competencies, traits, drivers, and experiences—four elements proven to be good predictors of engagement, productivity, and leadership effectiveness.
For each assessment, we draw on multiple methodologies including: behavioral and market interviews, team and peer 360 feedback, online self-assessments, Situational Judgment Tests (SJTs) and simulations. After every assessment, or combination of assessments, we report back on what we find, no matter how many people we’re assessing.
