Leadership Assessment

Odgers Berndtson's Leadership Practice

In the private and public sectors, the requirement for leadership assessment and development is on the rise. Identifying and accelerating the development of potential executives – including a special focus on diversity candidates – is a key priority as Baby Boomers retire and the War for Talent intensifies.

In addition, Boards of Directors, shareholders and customers are increasingly vocal in expecting organizations to have in place visible executive succession processes. Having a plan “on a shelf” isn’t sufficient. Potential internal talent for key executive roles, starting with the President and CEO, needs to be assessed, developed and tracked using a rigorous method.

World Class Assessment

Odgers Berndtson’s Leadership Practice is focused on providing high-quality assessment and leadership development services to help clients address these critical business issues. The Practice is headed by Eric Beaudan, who is actively involved with the firm’s partners and clients.

Our proprietary assessment method, called LeaderFit™, provides executives with a rigorous, independent view of their leadership potential. The assessment is based on a thorough understanding of an individual’s capabilities, interests and leadership potential, and what the organization is looking for in its future leaders. A central feature of our assessment method is the integration of the Hogan instruments, which provide highly reliable psychometric data on an individual’s interpersonal skills, leadership style and values.

Our Leadership Practice provides the following services:

  • Assessment of final candidates
  • CEO assessment and coaching
  • Top talent assessment and development
  • Executive team-building
  • Executive succession planning and assessment
