Making sound personnel decisions –
the Leadership Assessment

Home»Services»Leadership Assessment

Do you want to make sound personnel decisions? As part of our search process and as an independent service, we utilize the conception, implementation and facilitation of an assessment center, potential analyses and competency-based interviews in order to evaluate in more detail the most suitable management competencies and to make long-term and sound personnel decisions.

Leaders are the driving force behind the company. They not only develop, design and implement strategies, but also bear responsibility for the most important resource of any company: its people! Leaders are the ones who maintain an employee´s motivation and thus promote an environment in which employees can grow, drive innovation and ultimately make a company sustainably successful by creating added value.

Why is a Leadership Assessment a beneficial approach?

This makes it all the more important in the search for personnel to find the right person who will not only attract new employees to the company, but will also be able to ensure that they stay with the company. Whether for a specific search or as a stand-alone service – the Reckers & Griesbach team provides support in leadership assessments for leadership positions.

No two leaders are alike and no two positions have exactly the same requirements. The Leadership Assessment is an effective tool for identifying potential leaders and describing someone´s unique qualities in terms of leading, managing and interacting with others.

A Leadership Assessment can be created for any position within an organization: from entry-level management to CEO. If you are looking for a qualified person for a management position, you will want to know in advance, in your capacity as the authority, what personality traits distinguish that person.

  • Is he/she able to assert him/herself?
  • Does he/she possess strong interpersonal skills?
  • What essential personal assets does he/she have at his/her disposal?
  • How do the personality traits fit into my corporate culture or what influence can this person have on a cultural change?
  • What personal development is he/she aspiring to?

No two leaders are alike and no two positions have exactly the same requirements. Our Leadership Assessment is an effective tool for identifying potential leaders and describing a person´s unique qualities.

Working together for future success

If you are considering someone for a management position, as an employer you want to be able to assess at an early stage how well this person will fit in with the tasks at hand and the corporate structure, and how systematically he or she can drive processes and solutions forwards. And whether he or she is able to communicate with others eye to eye.

For us, leadership assessment in means working together with you to find out on an individual basis whether candidates fit the current role – and vice versa. Only with the right candidate will you and your company be successful with each other in the future. We provide you with the support you need.
