Assessment

for Selection - we are best known for our involvement in the selection of middle to senior managers, often in more complex selection processes (eg, involving a mix of internal and external candidates)

 

for Development - to provide career and leadership insights, crystallize the development needs of leaders, and work with leaders to build action-oriented development plans.

 

for Talent Management - to identify future leaders and map the leadership capabilities and risks within a business.
