Evaluation as a Point of Difference

To assess a candidate's leadership style, natural capabilities, development opportunities, and cultural fit our executive search team uses the SuccessFinder Assessment.

With the scientific data captured through SuccessFinder we can predict a leader's likelihood of success and satisfaction in a role with great accuracy while also helping to mitigate bias. Once an executive has been selected, we can use the same report to provide coaching in the first 90 days that will enable the executive to integrate and add value quickly.
