An estimated 82 percent of business leaders fall short of their managerial expectations according to a recent write-up in Forbes. Based on a report from Harvard Business Review, more than 60 percent of executives admit being unprepared for the challenges of leadership roles, and at least half fail within the first 18 months of being hired for such positions.
At OBER Group we use Business Psychologists who are experienced assessors to Board level. Our rigorous leadership assessment process provides in-depth information on strengths and areas of development to enable organisations to make the right hiring decisions and add value to the bottom line.
Hiring decisions at the senior leadership level can be costly if the wrong candidate is chosen to fill the position. Potential repercussions include lost revenue, damaged reputation and high employee turnover to name a few.
Having assessed hundreds of executives we know what success looks like in leadership roles. We also have extensive experience in the financial services and with the regulatory environment and its requirements.
We specialise in executive assessment to C-level and also identification of High-potentials. We use a multi-dimensional approach to assessment and are trained in a number of psychometric tools which help to identify those with a potential or readiness to move to more senior roles enabling effective succession planning from Emerging Leaders to C-suite level. We are independent of any test publishers and as such are able to use the most cutting-edge tools to add value to each of our clients to meet their specific business and strategic needs.
The context of the role matters and off-the-shelf solutions can only provide generic assessments. We are proud to be unique and provide truly bespoke executive assessments.
We tailor our approach to each organisation and role.
We offer comprehensive executive assessments to C-suite level, each of which is a bespoke service, tailored to the specific needs of the client in question as well as the position to be filled. By looking beyond the standard job qualifications and immediate aspects, our team is able to help businesses fully meet their long-term goals and succeed where others fall short.”
