Leaders are business critical
They impact the people, systems and culture in every organisation. The ever-changing business landscape demands leaders who are adaptable and able to perform and encourage others to thrive in increasingly complex, uncertain, volatile and ambiguous conditions.
Hiring high-potential leaders, however, is easier said than done.
The problem is, many people don't understand the scientific evidence behind high potential leadership, or how to translate psychological concepts into practice.
That's where a robust evidence-based assessment process comes in.
Leadership assessments, when done well generate a solid return on investment, enabling you to: confidently recruit or promote high-potential leaders who will:
Evolve your organisational culture
Positively impact the bottom line and crucially;
Support and develop the people you employ.

of respondents say that their leadership either takes no action regarding culture or are merely reactive instead of being proactive.

How our assessments help prevent executive failure
How our assessments help prevent executive failure In our assessments, we:
Identify your specific requirements for future leaders by delving in to the uniqueness of the role and organisation.
Utilise all the available data - business, contextual and psychological.
Take an objective, unbiased and evidence-based approach.
Separate past performance from future potential or performance.

You will get an unbiased leadership report written by two business and/or clinical psychologists, highlighting the key traits and behaviours that will ensure your leaders hit the ground running and succeed.
THE COST OF A BAD LEADER
Many widely held beliefs about leadership are actually incongruent with the scientific evidence.
You cannot hire on gut instinct, likability or past performance alone if you want to hire genuine high-potential, future-fit leaders.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“The assessment process the Work Psychologists run is rigorous, insightful and useful. Their Leaders of The Future assessment allowed us to make informed decisions which would otherwise would have been based on his current performance and our ‘gut instinct’. We have been able to unearth hidden talent with real potential for innovation and creativity.
I would recommend this process to anyone trying to establish if a potential employee has the right psychological profile to meet the organisations needs”.
