MPS Leader Assessment
In Leader Assessments, we emphasize the suitability of the leader’s personality to the operating environment and its challenges. The organization’s situation, environment, strategy and culture create the criteria for good leadership and should be taken into account when selecting leaders. The leader’s work career and achievements do not tell everything, and alone do not predict future success as a leader. The leader’s personality and way of operating affects the dynamics and culture of the whole management team, which further affects the organization’s efficiency and the satisfaction of the staff. According to some studies, the dissatisfaction with management and closest supervisor is the main reason why people change jobs.
It is not possible to define management competencies that are common to all organizations, but studies show that certain features and practices of the leader’s personality are very important for success. When selecting a leader, it is essential to identify the risk factors associated with the leader’s personality and way of operating.
The leader’s personality does matter
Because the leader’s personality and style of operating are indeed significant, Leader Assessments emphasize the suitability of the leader’s personality to the operating environment and its challenges. The starting point of the assessment is to map out the organization’s situation, the needs of the future, and the culture on which we define the criteria for each leader position. We always use multiple methods in assessments. Our Leader Assessments include an interview regarding the leader’s business know-how and a broad psychological interview, as well as an examination of the personality, work style and motivation. Substance competence, achievements and leader’s personality is the combination of a successful leadership.

MPS Aptitude/ Potential Assessment
Building a successful organisation requires that you recruit the right people for the job. In recruitment the assessment process begins with defining the criteria for success. We decide on the objectives of the assessment together with the supervisor responsible for the recruitment and choose the methods to be applied according to the objectives for each assessment situation. We give our conclusions on the candidate’s aptitude in the form of a clear, perceptive report. Constructive feedback also adds to the self-knowledge of the person involved in the assessment.
Our assessments include interviews, psychological tests, simulations, and case assignments. We tailor the content of the assessments according to the situation. The methods we use in personnel assessment are designed for using in business environment. They are entitled to assess behavior in job situations, thus establishing confidence for assessed persons that exercises used in assessment are relevant to real job situations and provide opportunities for demonstrating his/her skills.
