Leadership and Assessment Services

The world of Leadership Services can be fragmented and confusing. Talent strategists must increasingly consolidate intelligence from multiple sources. Whether they are engaging in board succession planning, streamlining talent pools in a merger or acquisition, making difficult reorganisation decisions or enriching a leadership pipeline. 

As an executive search firm, Amrop Carmichael Fisher defines Leadership Advisory as a structured, comprehensive and objective evaluation of current competences and future potential.

 

It is related to specific criteria, based on professional and documentable observations and measures.


Key questions:

  • How to build consensus between stakeholders from dispersed geographies, cultures, divisions?
  • How to integrate Leadership Assessment into talent management architecture?
  • Is it better to partner with specialists, or deep generalists? Using which tools? 
  • How to transform data into business insight?

Applications:

  • Assessment of external candidates in the executive search process
  • Assessment of internal candidates for senior managerial positions
  • Assessment of senior managers and / or management team/s, and
  • Team development and succession planning.

Initial research found a range of over 120 relevant articles which contributed to the understanding of factors involved in the effectiveness of teams, and the research where measures were developed or used in relation to these. These tools have been developed using 30 years of integrated work and incorporate theories from a range of experts, including Dr. John Molineaux of Deakin University. His research noted a range of critical factors, including internal factors such as:

 

  • a defined focus i.e. purpose and alignment
  • performance measures around results and accountability

  • response to individual needs and group culture.

Also covering group culture, based on factors around:
