The first step in a succession planning strategy is to establish a success profile that defines the critical skills, experiences and traits required for a leadership role. We offer two solutions for developing customized success profiles:

  • Using stakeholder interviews, existing data and our expertise, we build a success profile tailored to the specific needs of your organization’s roles.
  • Our Success Profile Tool, a technology-enabled option, can be customized to your organization and the target role.

Using our role-based assessment (RBA), we help identify candidates who match the success profile. Combining one-on-one interviews, personality tests and feedback from peers and managers, an RBA gauges the leadership capabilities and relevant experiences of the individual to determine fit with the target role profile.

By identifying gaps between the candidate and the leadership role, we can support your organization in creating an accelerated development plan to increase successor readiness.
