Executive level assessment

We help you identify the most appropriate leader for your organisation's values

The recruitment of executives emphasises the importance of identifying the candidate’s strategic understanding, vision and leadership skills and abilities, as the leader has a major impact on the organisation’s business and work community.

Assessment & psychology

Comprehensive psychological assessment methods

For the executive evaluation, we use certified evaluation tasks that have undergone a scientific peer review. Conclusions are drawn on the basis of a number of methods, which include not only suitability assessments but also simulation exercises and scenarios. Interviews with psychologists play an important role in management assessments. A certified and licensed assessment psychologist is responsible for the assessment process and supports the client from the beginning of the assessment to the selection of the person.

Leader & work environment

Assessment of working methods and personality

Psychological assessments of executives look at the candidate’s strategic planning, decision-making and ability to motivate and lead teams. The assessment helps to identify how the candidate’s interaction style, people management, decision making and approach to driving the organisation towards common goals matches the environment in which the candidate operates.

Selection & support

Avila’s assessment psychologist will always make a clear recommendation on the suitability of the person for the role based on the criteria set. The assessment also includes an organisational suitability assessment to determine the manager’s fit with the work culture and values of the organisation. The assessment report is discussed with the psychologist.
