Leadership Assessment

RSR Partners offers search-related assessment to provide additional information about candidates to help inform decision making as an additional service. Our clients find this information to be useful in hiring for senior roles, as it helps differentiate candidates in terms of leadership style and cultural fit. Finalist candidates are assessed using online leadership questionnaires and in-depth behavioral interviewing. Feedback to the successful candidate can also help ensure a faster and more effective integration into the organization.

Leadership Assessment

Our assessment services are offered in collaboration with our strategic partner, which allows us to maintain the appropriate separation between search and assessment and ensures that our clients are provided with objective and unbiased advice.

World-class assessment capability to inform candidate selection, facilitate onboarding, and support talent and succession planning to optimize leader impact.

  • Assessment services are offered in collaboration with our strategic partner.
  • Multi-dimensional and rigorous assessment process designed for CEOs, division leaders, or C-suite executives.
  • Provide questionnaires to assess leadership style, attitudes, motives, as well as “derailers”.
  • In-depth interviews assess leadership competencies.
  • Comprehensive deep-dive referencing to assess performance, behaviors, and leadership.

Assessments should be built around the critical success factors and characteristics that are relevant to the organization and business strategy. There should also be a process to communicate results appropriately to both the individual and the organization. Our findings are typically more robust when a multi-dimensional assessment process is used to fully integrate findings, particularly so that the data includes: what an individual has done; how an individual behaves or has behaved on the job; why an individual behaves in a certain manner; and when or where an individual may behave in a certain manner.
