Leadership Assessment and Development

Preparing responsible, resourceful leaders

Our proven approach, tailored to your people and your organization, shows aspiring leaders how to excel and become extraordinary leaders at all levels of their organization.

Assessments

Using a variety of assessment tools, selected to best match your needs, we help people discover their potential to grow, taking into account leadership traits that can be gleaned and measured depending on your organization’s needs. We find that the psychology-based Birkman Method assessment is particularly effective in providing insights that enable people to self-manage, avoid unproductive behaviors, and improve their impact and effectiveness as leaders.

Leadership Development

Meaningful, measurable and practical problem-solving is required for any affective leadership development process. Based on their assessment results, we help individuals evolve their capabilities by experiencing different leadership responsibilities, learning new skills, and receiving action-oriented feedback via tailored development programs.
