About the book

For professionals responsible for talent management and development, assessing competence and capability is crucial, especially in relation to recruiting the right leader. Yet talent professionals can also use leadership assessment as a positive and powerful talent development tool. Leadership Assessment for Talent Development goes beyond recruitment to position assessment as a central, strategic activity. It demonstrates how to apply a connected process that accelerates behavioural change areas and facilitates the engagement and enabling of in-house talent. This practical, forward-looking book uses authentic, engaging case studies to show how the principles of leadership assessment can work in practice. It is an essential companion for HR and talent professionals in any field who want to equip their company with the talent it needs to be fit for business success.
