Duration3 hour virtual simulation followed by coaching

This is a suite of assessment simulations designed to measure an individual’s readiness to execute specific business strategies.  Each person participates in a three-hour virtual simulation that involves a case analysis, emails, phone calls, and a presentation. A day or two later, the individual has a session with a certified management coach in which feedback is provided related to his/her performance in the simulation. During this coaching call, they begin the process of completing a development plan to address those competencies where improvement is needed.

The simulations are targeted for three different groups: manager – first levels of management, high potentials – mid levels, and executive – senior leaders. The major components of the assessments include:  skills being observed in at least five leadership exercises, personality tendencies and motivations, learning agility, and ability to execute business strategies.

The assessment simulations are designed to help organizations identify and develop a pool of talented leaders. They are being used in conjunction with succession planning, identifying high potentials, leadership development, promotions, and hiring.

Simulation Objectives:

  • Provide specific data on competencies for targeted leadership development.

  • Ensure a pipeline of talent for the future.

  • Create a more objective process to use in hiring and promotions.

  • Decrease the loss of high potential talent.

  • Increase the overall effectiveness of leaders.
