Selecting the right people is not just a competitive advantage – it is a necessity for business survival, profit and growth.

C-Level Selection

Is competency evaluation sufficient in predicting a CEO’s success?

When selecting a CEO, CFO or other C-suite executive, the stakes are high and the path to success is rarely tangible. In such cases, it is vital to understand the deeper psychological underpinnings that inform a candidate’s decisions, from their reasoning abilities to their motives and leadership style; it is essential to know how that person deals with pressure, and how he or she might derail. But, if a candidate has already demonstrated the skills to be considered for such a senior level position, a competency-based assessment will surely fail to capture these nuances.

Through in-depth psychological interviews and the application of impartial, validated instruments, Mobley Group Pacific’s (MGP) leadership consultants develop a unique, penetrating evaluation of a C-suite candidate. We offer insights into a range of factors that will affect a candidate’s success, including adaptation capabilities, tolerance of risk and ambiguity, implications of a decision making style, and compatibility between motivational forces and the company culture as well as its strategic goals. With this information, we provide in-depth feedback to organizational stakeholders that focus on the information they need to ensure that they have the right senior leaders in the right roles at the right times.
