Leadership Recruitment

Hiring mistakes can be costly. Bad managers cost businesses billions of dollars each year and having too many of them can bring down a company.

Our assessments determine a candidate’s ability to achieve high team performance. They ensure you select the right candidates for leadership. They also evaluate candidates’ trustworthiness and beliefs about engagement along with their values, motives, interests, personality, behaviors, goals and more.

The Challenge of Leadership Recruitment

Finding the right leader is challenging. It requires searching deep to discover exceptional talents and better understanding behaviors, personality characteristics and leadership style. You need to go beyond just using interviews to select leaders, since the candidate’s leadership attributes cannot be measured effectively in an interview.

  • Technical skills and intelligence
  • People and team skills
  • Attitudes and trustworthiness
  • Adaptability – ability to take on new challenges and ideas
  • Having a vision of the future – forward-thinking

Simply put, leadership recruitment interviews are based on the idea that candidates are acting as they would in a work situation and are telling the truth during the interview. In reality, many candidates often provide answers they believe the interviewer wants to hear rather than the most accurate answer. How then do you find the right leaders?
