Executive Assessment and Selection

TLG Advantage

TLG has extensive experience in executive selection and helps clients validly and accurately assess candidate fit with position requirements and the organizational culture. A comprehensive battery of tools is used, and may include assessments and a structured behavioral interview that measure personality, values and character, judgment and reasoning, and potential executive derailment.

Assessment through testing is followed by structured behavioral interviews, in which individuals are evaluated on competencies related to the position. While no assessment methodology is fool-proof, our process can help you make a much more informed hiring decision. As an added value, the information we give you on your new hire can help ensure a faster transition, aid in their development, and increase the likelihood of success. We also offer development planning and coaching for the newly hired candidate, as well as on-boarding services.
