Executive Assessment & Development

Does your executive team have the skills and adaptability to move to the next level? Are the leaders you are considering bringing on board stronger in some areas than in others? Do you really know the full potential of the leaders you already have?

At Egon Zehnder, we recognize that leadership development is a long-term journey and that even the best leaders can improve. Our Executive Assessment and Development Practice is aimed at helping your leaders do just that. Our work in this area began in the 1980s and evolved into a bespoke approach, one that recognizes that your leaders may need to be evaluated against the new and specific challenges of today’s volatile world. Whether you are working through a succession process, completing a merger, or pivoting into a new industry, we can work with individuals or an entire top management team to discover what your executives have — and what support they may need to unlock their best selves. We also provide market insights, including benchmarking, to enable senior leaders to make the best people decisions. 

Our goal is to draw the greatness out of every leader.

Insights on Executive Assessment & Development

Harvard Business Review — From Curious to Competent

Harvard Business Review — From Curious to Competent

For 30 years, Egon Zehnder has been in the business of assessing leaders along two broad dimensions: potential and competence. One key conclusion? You can’t have either without curiosity. Although we have found that high potentials also need insight, engagement, and determination, curiosity—defined as a penchant for seeking new experiences, knowledge, and feedback and an openness to change—is perhaps most important.

The Hindu – Making 'Lateral Entry' Work

The Hindu – Making 'Lateral Entry' Work

Most CEOs are grappling with one particular challenge, irrespective of industry or geography: getting the right leadership talent. Governments face this challenge too. The Indian government has responded to this challenge by taking the initiative to invite executives from beyond the ranks of the civil service to apply for certain Joint Secretary posts.

Mind the Gap: A Global Report

Mind the Gap: A Global Report

A synthesis from Egon Zehnder's Leaders & Daughters 2018

For Leaders & Daughters 2018, we hosted 32 panel and roundtable conversations around the world. We have now brought together almost 6,000 attendees to share experiences, perspectives, and—importantly—solutions. Through both intimate and large-scale events, we used this year’s theme—Mind The Gap—to look closely at why senior-level women so rarely make it into the C-Suite, and to share examples of success.
