Pre-Assess Candidates for Leadership Traits: Sense or Non-sense?
of survey complete.
We were recently intrigued by a set of questions posed by former practitioners who are in the midst of developing a service to pre-qualify leadership capabilities of corporate professionals:
Understanding that there are several accepted leadership styles and definitions, and that a company’s circumstances may dictate which styles or specific competencies they need, is there a set of universal (or near universal) characteristics that are desired regardless of circumstance?
Is there a market for an interactive database of candidates and potential candidates that are assessed for competencies and experiences that demonstrate ability in these universal characteristics for leadership?
Have firms already built a leadership assessment function into their own talent communities?
Do external services exist and are companies currently partnering with suppliers who pre-assess leadership potential?
We don't know but we thought we would ask you.
We thought the idea interesting enough to design the short survey below to answer some of the questions.
As always your information will remain private. All those who complete this short survey will receive the results.
