How effective are your leaders? It’s a simple, yet difficult question to answer. I am always curious to understand how organizations go about evaluating the performance effectiveness of their boards, directors, leaders, and executive teams. The answer is sometimes positive, but in most cases, despite that optimistic positivity, the response is far from accurate.
Over the past decade the leadership industry has been transforming from within. At Stanton Chase, we too have come to understand that our true strength in Executive Search is born of having a strong Executive Assessment core. It was a natural evolution for us to then become more relevant to our clients, and to start to offer Executive, Leadership & Board Assessment services as stand-alone solutions, independent of pure search transactions.
Can the leaders you have transform your business?
Do you know who your high-potential leaders are?
How will entering the C-suite affect the performance of your finest executives?
The effectiveness of the leadership system in an organization determines the organization’s performance, especially in volatile and uncertain business environments.
We will support you in answering these questions confidently, providing you with the acumen and awareness needed to make the right leadership decisions, at the right times. Our specialists in Executive Assessment and Development are able to accommodate and understand the needs and aptitude of each individual, in order to make the most of your potential and use your leadership skills to their greatest effect.
When assessing leaders, the objective is to be able to identify those who can lead now, as well as those who have future leadership potential. This means identifying a leadership partner who works with a robust and customizable assessment methodology, an in-depth understanding of the science of leadership and, most importantly, is recognized for their expertise on leadership matters.
At Stanton Chase we have assessed and delivered leadership talent, delivering high impact and sustainable results in organizational growth for more than 25 years, in more than 40 countries around the world, and across the widest spectrum of industries and sectors.
“Companies with high leadership effectiveness levels outperform others in total shareholder returns and annual net income.”
“The top 25% had twice the annual net income (profit attributable to shareholders) compared to the lowest quartile and returned 7 times more to shareholders over a 5 year period...”
“Organizations with leadership engagement levels of 65% or greater outperformed the total stock market index and posted total shareholder returns that were 22% higher than average.”
When planning a restructure of the organization in order to grow to the next level and unlock new growth areas within the company’s strategic directions, moving people around, elevating people to newly created leadership levels, and identifying transferable skill-sets are all key areas of restructuring. These challenges become easier to unlock with the proper assessment partner. The alternative might be disengaged leaders that stray in search of new careers.
Ensuring sustainable organizational growth is key in moving across organizational growth cycles. By identifying internal candidates that have the ability or potential to take on new and more senior roles in the future, the organization delivers impact over time. This is achieved by mapping current abilities against the future requirements of both organizational goals, as well as individual executive capabilities. Our assessments map ability and potential against current and future competencies.
Stanton Chase Executive Assessments provide an independent measure of a leader’s ability to deliver on the short, medium and long term strategic and operational objectives of the organization, and enhance long term tenure of hires, for better return on hiring investment. Regardless of the recruitment method organizations have used to identify and engage executive candidates, getting an external, professional and robust third party assessment is key to mitigating executive attrition risks.
The ability of an organization to identify growth and potential in executive leaders is probably the only way to help both the organization and the leader to maximize their potential. The alternative is stagnation, or getting the same old result, year after year. Stanton Chase Growth, Development, Potential and Derailment Reports, all part of the overall Executive Assessment Solution, provide insights on how to help leaders to operate at a higher level.
