London, England - October 13, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —
An estimated 82 percent of business leaders fall short of their managerial expectations according to a recent write-up in Forbes. Based on a report from Harvard Business Review, more than 60 percent of executives admit being unprepared for the challenges of leadership roles, and at least half fail within the first 18 months of being hired for such positions. This comes as no surprise to organisational psychologists of OBER Group who have seen this development take shape first hand.
In response to this issue, Director, Zuzana Robertson has announced the launch of the foremost leadership consultancy's profiling executive assessment strategy. "The majority of companies hire or promote candidates into leadership roles based on seniority, previous experience and character traits, such as competitiveness and perfectionism," said Zuzana. "Unfortunately, these are the very aspects that often drive away other team members. As a result, businesses begin to see a downturn in morale and productivity. At OBER Group, we help clients fill their top leadership roles with the best possible candidates by looking at the bigger picture."
OBER Group Ltd. employs a number of elements when creating its bespoke and independent leadership assessments. Determinations are made by organizational psychologists and experts with extensive knowledge and experience across different industries. This allows the company to offer in-depth insight into appropriate candidates for high-level positions and allows them to determine leadership readiness among prospects.
According to details on the company's website, the first step of assessment is a consultation with a hiring manager. From there, OBER Group incorporates advanced psychometrics and interpretation into the process followed by an extensive profiling interview with a senior psychologist. At that point, clients' options branch out into a couple of different directions, each of which is geared toward helping them make more informed hiring decisions.
Concluded Zuzana, "Hiring decisions at the senior leadership level can be costly if the wrong candidate is chosen to fill the position. Potential repercussions include lost revenue, damaged reputation and high employee turnover to name a few. We offer comprehensive executive assessments to C-suite level, each of which is a bespoke service, tailored to the specific needs of the client in question as well as the position to be filled. By looking beyond the standard job qualifications and immediate aspects, our team is able to help businesses fully meet their long-term goals and succeed where others fall short."
