Use the PXT Select Leadership report to compare candidates to six universal leadership skills and use the customized leadership related interview questions to explore their strengths and challenges so that you can make a more informed hiring decision.
Think about the leadership styles and characteristics that will
work best in your organization and how well this candidate compares to what
is right for you and your company.
We recommend this for both external
candidates and internal candidates you are considering any position that requires leadership skills.
The PXT Select Leadership report is perfect for developing existing or potential leaders because it reveals how they are likely to behave and their strengths and weaknesses for each of the six key leadership skills.
How can you use their strengths? What additional responsibilities can you give them that will use their leadership strengths to challenge and reward them while they benefit the organization?
How do their challenges impact their work? Use the interview questions as the basis for a discussion. Focus on one or two skills and rather than expecting a large behavioral change, consider how you can encourage and reward them for small changes that have a big impact over time.
