Neal’s selection process works in tandem with existing interview and vetting processes used by the client. He works deeply with candidates to develop a comprehensive understanding of strengths, preferences, motivations, behaviors under stress, and potential areas for further development.
Neal answers the question, “What are the underlying forces that either compel this candidate to be successful or present too great a risk to the hiring organization?”
Neal initiates a comprehensive process to assess personality, fit and alignment with the requirements of the job. This happens with understanding for the context of the work culture of the organization, the particular function and location culture as well as current leadership needs based on recent events. We do this through a series of exercises, including:
- Psychometric assessments that reveal communication and problem-solving skills
- Role-plays that reveal candidate values, analytical skills and the performance management style that the client can expect in the workplace
- Analytical and writing exercises understand both tactical and strategic thinking
- In-depth informational interviews understand both tactical and strategic thinking
