The best leader is the one that when the job is done the people will say "we did it ourselves". - Lao Tsu

Leadership Assessment

The leadership of an organization is a critical component to success. Leaders at all levels within an organization strongly influence culture, quality, productivity and sustainability. The importance to every organization of attracting, identifying, developing and retaining the best management and executive leadership talent available is unquestionable.

Our practice is focused on developing with our clients the systems and tools to develop and implement sustainable leadership development systems that meet their requirements today and in the future.
The first step in any leadership development system is to be capable of identifying those individuals with the skills and attributes required within the organization or with the potential to acquire them. We develop with our clients, leadership assessment programs that include:
  • Competency modeling
  • Standardized assessment instruments
  • Assessment and development centres 
  • 360 feedback tools
In addition to designing and conducting behavioural based assessment tools, we are capable of using a wide variety of personal assessment instruments to support both team and individual interventions. A representative, but not exhaustive list, includes:
  • Myers-Briggs Personality Assessment Instrument (MBTI)
  • DiSC
  • FIRO-B
  • Work Personality Index
  • Hersey-Blanchard Situational Leadership
  •  Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument
  • Enneagram
  • Career Values Scale
  • Career Interest Profile
