At Ellis Locke & Associates, we provide an array of test and interview-based assessment services that help our clients make more accurate evaluations of candidates' intellectual, interpersonal, management and leadership capabilities. These leadership assessment services are available for various levels, including: executive assessment, management assessment, and high potential assessment.
Our leadership assessments can be used for selection or development.
This information can be used to provide insight to leaders and human resource professionals as they make key staffing decisions. As a result, our clients are able to make better hiring and promotion decisions, create more meaningful employee development plans and on-boarding processes, and more effectively manage employees with performance concerns.
The Leadership Assessment Process at Ellis Locke & Associates
Leadership Assessment Interview & Feedback
After completing the testing, candidates undergo an in-depth behavioural interview with one of our consultants. During this session, the consultant will use the results of the tests and questionnaires as the basis for further exploration of the candidate's background, experience and work habits. Before they leave, candidates are given detailed feedback on the results of the executive assessment along with recommendations and suggested strategies for personal development. We work hard to ensure that each candidate derives as much personal benefit from the leadership assessment experience as possible.
Executive Assessment Report
The final component is a detailed written report that outlines the strengths, possible limitations and developmental needs of the candidate as these relate to the culture and values of the hiring organization and the specific demands of the position for which the candidate is being considered. Copies of this report are forwarded to both the client organization and the candidate. If time is an issue, the consultant can provide the client or decision makers with a verbal debriefing by telephone almost immediately following the leadership assessment.
