Confidential • Fast • Flexible • Accurate
CEO Perspective Group Assessments are unique and can be tailored to fit your needs. Using advanced forms of testing and interviewing, comprehensive information is collected, individually analyzed and provided to best meet current and future goals. When it’s your firm, your board or you, you need to be sure. That’s why leading firms and people consistently call us--confident the next step is correct. And the step after.
Boards, companies, investor groups and executives applaud the CEO Assessment for depth and accuracy of insights. Especially prized is the ability to assess intangible factors and traits, such as judgment, potential, risk-profile and integrity.
Designed for multiple purposes, the CEO Assessment now has modified versions to fit a client’s specific needs. Clients in distant locales can frequently obtain valuable insights without traveling to New York. Decades of experience and technical expertise enable Dr. Soder to combine evaluation and coaching for private equity firms, boards, and individuals in innovative ways and maintain same rigorous standards.
Psychometric skills enabled Soder to design valid evaluations, including sentence completion and graphic measures. These graphic assessments provide rich data for qualified psychometrists like Soder. The pictures help with “what if” scenarios, preclude faking, plus help make the experience interesting and educational.
Our Assessments are truly special
Clients fly in from far corners of the world, refer colleagues and spouses, and many years later, hundreds of clients still base key decisions and actions on guidance received in assessments. Individuals consistently seek our guidance to determine “what’s next.” Others call us to stay engaged and challenged despite retirement. Highly regarded leaders and role models often credit Soder—“my rapid ascent started with her assessment.” Our flexibility helps leaders at all stages.
Top consultants, bankers and lawyers confidentially use the CEO Assessment to gain a competitive edge. New and aspiring chief executives applaud it as "accurate, enlightening and immensely helpful" and "timeless." Boards and private equity firms utilize the Assessment to evaluate potential candidates and determine whether a current CEO should continue in the position, as well as for development and succession. Our research on the “early warning signs” is recognized as ground-breaking by leading governance groups.
After years of research, testing and interviews, including studies from our many returning clients, we achieved a break-through in assessment and can now validly measure formerly elusive traits and key variables impacting them. Thus a top executive's integrity, ability to manage in ambiguity, and risk profile can be accurately ascertained. Designed for times when a firm or boards need to go beyond the usual selection and evaluation methods, the Optimal CEO DiagnostiX©, is the latest in executive assessment.
