Executive Assessment

Research and experience prove that between 40-50% of executives fail in the first 18 months. However, success is scientifically predictable.

The Dr. George Watts and Associates approach for these human capital initiatives consists of testing and profiling cognitive ability (critical thinking and deductive reasoning), personality structure and bio data. We also assess the organizational context and culture the position must function in.

We believe that four key reasons exist to conduct executive assessments:

Identify High Potentials

Create Career Ladders

Develop Skill Sets

Assess External Job Candidates

Our Three Step Process:

1. We categorize the precise behavioral competencies needed for job success. We build a systematic, research-based job skills description that provides the foundation for a comprehensive selection interview.

2. We compile an individualized assessment report that assists in a hire / no hire decision. We utilize legally valid and defensible personality, behavioral, attitudinal and cognitive measures.

3. Once on board, the new hire speaks with Dr. Watts or our Consultant to review assessment results, target identified weak areas for improvement and leverages their inherent strengths.

We examines the fit between our client firm’s culture and the personality traits of the job candidate. The lack of fit is a major cause of executive failure.

Management & Sales Profiling

Research consistently reveals that General Managers and Front Line Supervisors experience more stress than anyone else in the firm. Turnover creates operational and service delivery quality issues. The result? Your sales force sells, you lose as many customers as you gain, which creates flat top line growth.

Sound familiar? It doesn’t have to be that way.

Dr. George Watts works with you to understand the precise behavioral competencies needed for the position’s success. Then we profile job candidates against that job analysis using cutting edge profiling techniques.

The result? Better hires with fewer turnovers.

Dr. Watts’ proprietary profiling system combines cognitive ability, personality and background data to provide a job comfort prediction. Much more than the weak computer-driven report you have seen before. We actually speak with the hiring manager one-on-one and make specific recommendations.
