The role of leadership in an organization is to continually scan the external environment to see what could affect the business, and drive results over the long-term through people — the senior team and the broader organization. To do this, senior-level executives draw on a core set of leadership capabilities, regardless of their role, industry or geography.

We assess and benchmark leaders on the six capabilities that research has shown are critical to leadership performance:

Strategic thinking

Driving results

Leading change

Leading people

Collaborating and influencing

Building people capability

Executives are scored against an objective scale from “functional” to “transformative,” so that individuals can be compared to one another and to the required degree of competence for a given role. The engaging story-based behavioral interview reveals executives’ strengths in each of these areas today and where they have the most potential to develop.
