Executive Success Profiles
Understanding what competence looks like is no longer enough. Successfully delivering a business strategy requires an understanding of the critical leadership attributes needed to drive the strategy forward. However, defining success for these pivotal roles isn’t easy in today’s world. Constant uncertainty and rapid change make it difficult to forecast exactly which skills and attributes will be most critical in the future.
Our Executive Success Profiles offer a unique blueprint for success. We clarify what strong talent looks like by industry, business function, job level, business challenge, strategy or geographic market. This enables organisations to start identifying, evaluating, and preparing future leaders years and even decades ahead of time.
Why Korn Ferry?
Our Executive Success Profiles outline a prioritised set of leadership competencies, experiences, traits and drivers that are anchored in the specific strategic context of the organisation and the demands of the job or role.
- We listen first. We gain input from stakeholder groups across the organisation, to capture unique perspectives and build necessary buy-in.
- We match strength with strategy. We combine stakeholder input with our own expertise and leadership data to develop profiles that outline what it takes for leaders to succeed against the future organisational strategy.
- We are data driven. Our insights are drawn from a database of 4.9 million assessments.
Each of our Executive Success Profiles aligns an organisation’s strategy with specific leadership attributes. This means they can be leveraged not just for a single purpose but for a broad range of talent needs including assessment, on-boarding, development, organisation design, career maps, rewards and more.
