Executive Team Assessment

The efficiency of a management team is dependent on many factors. Teamwork, a common understanding of goals, complementarity of competences, and the working group dynamics are all components which affect the results as much as the individual qualities of each team member. 

Based on a wide range of diagnostic tools and solid experience working with management teams, at Ward Howell we have developed solutions that can give your business a unique competitive advantage in talent management.

Assessment of your executive team will allow you to:

  • Identify possible differences in the team members' understanding of the organization's goals and strategies;
  • Identify the team's habits, both productive and unproductive;
  • Assess the level of trust and transparency within the team;
  • Understand how roles and leadership positions are distributed within the group and at what levels competition occurs;
  • Assess the personal compatibility of team members and identify potential causes of values conflicts.

Based on the assessment results, we will provide you with high-quality expert support in the following areas:
