Assessment adds science to the art of making talent decisions.

Whether choosing between candidates or developing leaders, it is important to understand who they are – their style, their skills, their needs and what motivates them. Talent assessments go beyond simple testing to improve your odds of great talent decisions.

Assessments offer insight into individual strengths, needs and potential. Delivered by certified professionals, these tools help with both internal talent development and the assessment of external candidates for leadership positions.

In the coaching context, our consultants use the insights gained to support individuals in making and following focused career development plans. The result is stronger people, more self-aware of how to use their strengths to maximize their potential.

Assessment tools support a variety of HR challenges.

  • Recruitment and selection
  • Succession planning
  • Leadership development
  • Coaching
  • Team effectiveness
  • Career management and transition
