Spot Future Leaders Before They Leave You

There’s a good chance you’re overlooking leadership potential in your individual contributors. The risk? You lose your future leadership pipeline. Or worse, they run to your competitors. The Early Identifier is an online leadership potential assessment that gives potential leaders the chance to "try on" leadership and pursue their interest.

This assessment blends results both from the leadership scenarios and with the personality traits and motivational factors we've identified as essential to success. Afterward, you can use this data for more targeted development and strategy decisions.
