What leadership challenges do organisations face?

  • Getting the right person on board for their next senior appointment.
  • Assessing how their talent pool compares externally.
  • Identifying their future leaders.
  • Assessing how their senior leadership team measures up.
  • Identifying the best place to invest their development budget to get the highest return on investment.

How we can help

We have a range of assessment and consultancy solutions to help address your most important leadership challenges.

Identify what high performance looks like in your business

Our High Performance Profiling studies help you understand what differentiates high performers from ‘the rest’, and what differentiates high potentials from those who will just be ‘good enough’. Armed with this insight, you can fine-tune your recruitment practices, from attraction and sourcing through to selection methods, and often save money in the process. The same learning can be applied to managing internal talent and identifying what constitutes high potential within your organisation.

Leadership assessment

We believe that leadership assessment should be in-depth, robust and objective. Using a combination of ability tests, assessments of motivation and personality, and an in-depth interview with an experienced consultant, you can derive a holistic picture of an individual’s leadership capability and their development needs. 

Innovative ability tests

Our Elements range of online adaptive ability tests utilises technology to its best advantage. The difficulty of each question is based on the individual’s previous responses. This ensures the questions they see are at the optimum level of challenge for the individual, enabling them to demonstrate their true ability. The adaptive nature of these tests, combined with a high performing norm group, gives more differentiation for top performers.

Flexible personality assessment

Incorporating role match profiling, our Dimensions online personality questionnaire enables organisations to select the most important behaviours for a role and map an individual’s results against this profile.

We also have a range of Dimensions reports which can help inform the ongoing management and development of your existing and potential leaders. These include:

  • Potential Report - this report outlines the individual’s profile in relation to the eleven components of our Model of Potential. This can be used to help identify an individual’s strengths and development needs in relation to leadership potential.
  • Derailment Report - this report looks at the eight styles or patterns of personality, known as ‘derailers’, which in some cases could lead to burn-out or to a person of high potential becoming derailed. The report outlines the typical risks associated with each of the styles as well as the typical strengths, and also the possible career limiters relating to an absence of the pattern in question.
  • Development Profilethis profile can be used in developing the performance and potential of an individual. It provides an in-depth view of the individual’s typical behaviour against the 45 indicator measures of Dimensions.
