Russell Reynolds Associates: Executive Assessment

Russell Reynolds Associates find solving the “people puzzle” is one of the most challenging tasks any senior executive faces.  Russell Reynolds Associates believes executive assessment allows individuals to understand their team and culture better.

Successful outcomes of assessment include:

  • Evaluate key executives in the context of business objectives and cultural fit.
  • Assess a leadership team’s individual and collective ability to achieve expected results, particularly in a newly leveraged or otherwise transformed environment.
  • Benchmark individual executives and an entire leadership team against the competition.
  • Define individual career potential and development.
  • Increase focus on retaining the strongest talent by showing the risk of key executive departures and the level of difficulty in replacing them.
  • Propose options to optimize organizational structure and ensure robust succession planning.
  • Provide objective insight into issues such as morale, communications and challenges around a team’s alignment with the strategy.
