What is the Management Potential Assessment?
The Management Potential Assessment is a scientifically-validated, general personality assessment that is job-relevant because it measures the work-related preferences that a person brings to the job.
It is the most convenient tool to use in your selection process: it is administered online and is available 24/7/365. It takes a candidate only about 30 minutes to complete the entire assessment, and can be completed in either English or Spanish.
The customized, job-relevant Results Reports are emailed automatically to your designated recipients on the same business day that the candidate completes the online assessment session.
The Management Potential Assessment Results Report is organized so that you can see the candidate's work-related leadership strengths and liabilities at a glance, and detailed information is included for specific selection and development decisions when you need it.
Based on our 38 years of experience, the Management Potential Assessment Results Report highlights five key areas that have been shown to be critically important in identifying and developing leadership potential:
The person's overall work style on the job: energy level and stamina, willingness to accept direction or advice from others, approach to planning and understanding problems, overall ability to learn new information.
How this person will lead and direct activities of others: willing to take charge of situations, delegate tasks and follow up, comfortable asking questions, presenting unwelcome information, likely to plan before taking action.
Dealing with People:
How this person will interact with people: energized by being around people or prefers to work independently, willingness to make an effort to get along with others, straightforward or not, diplomatic or tactless.
How this person uses information to solve problems and challenges: ability to control reactions in order to plan solutions, able to blend logical and intuitive thinking.
This person's ability to manage his or her personal reactions and moods: able to remain calm in stressful situations, ability to focus and set aside internal emotional reactions.
The Management Potential Assessment Results Report shows you whether each of these five areas is a strength, a caution, or a concern for this candidate, and includes extensive detail, based on how this person answered the questions on the Management Potential Assessment tool, about what this person's personality-driven behavior on the job is likely to be.
The Management Potential Assessment validated results solve your problem of obtaining objective information about the strengths and liabilities that each candidate will bring to the job.
