Board and leadership assessment
Increase board and leadership quality and competencies
We support companies by assessing board and management teams. In our assessment we are focusing on cognitive, psychometric and 360 tools. The individual assessment will be concluded in an individual report, which includes a personal development plan, which should be followed up during the yearly performance reviews.
Increase individual and organizational performance
We support companies by reviewing current performance management cycle or if no performance management cycle exists, we help develop one. The tool should be simple and easy to use and contain main elements like objective setting, performance review, pay review, succession planning, talent management, and engagement and employer brand survey.
Succession planning/talent management
Increase successor rate/talent pipeline
We support companies structuring their succession planning and talent management processes through the performance management cycle. We use cognitive, psychometric and 360 tools and 9-Box grids to identify successors and talents, which will be used in an individual development plan. We ensure succession planning at executive leadership level will be discussed at board level.
Increase leadership quality and financial performance
We have developed a partnership with a niche management consultancy Fire and Shield. Fire & Shield is a minimum viable leadership framework geared for the future. We develop and implement individual and team development for new as well as experienced leaders.
Case study – increase employee retention
