Is Your Succession Planning Bulletproof?

Leading Your Organization into the Future

Most organizations aren't using the right criteria to assess and select their leaders. This means that, despite good intentions and significant investment, many leaders aren't prepared for the challenges ahead. 

Organizations tend to select leaders “on confidence rather than competence, charisma rather than humility, and narcissism rather than integrity,” said Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, a member of the AIIR Consulting Advisory Board. 

In fact, 73% of organizations are selecting leaders based solely on supervisor ratings of performance, which have been shown to be highly biased and not correlated with objective success. 

Is there a better way?


AIIR Offers Powerful Solutions for High-Stakes Leader Selection and Development

Leaders determine the fate of organizations. Yet, even organizations with advanced talent management functions consistently struggle to put the right leaders in charge — as many as 70% of executives fail within the first 18 months of being promoted or hired, costing hundreds of billions in the process.

AIIR Executive Assessment combines decades of consulting experience and expertise with a proprietary assessment methodology to identify leaders with the qualities and qualifications to succeed at your organization.

Let AIIR Executive Assessment help identify the best leaders for your organization.

Proprietary Executive Assessment Methodology

Our business psychologists analyzed hundreds of scientific journal articles and our own internal data to decode best-in-class talent management. The resulting AIIR Executive Assessment methodology synthesizes data from:

  • Psychometric assessments
  • Competency-based interview
  • 360-degree feedback
  • Business metrics

Combined, these inputs build a multi-dimensional profile that allows AIIR to make accurate, data-rich recommendations that drive outcomes from engagement to growth, and acts as the foundation for the focused, effective leadership development all leaders need to succeed.

Succession Planning

Succession planning should be a strategic priority for any company. Yet most succession planning decisions are the result of informal processes or emergency placements.

AIIR Executive Assessment injects insight and experience into your leadership pipeline, replacing ad-hoc practices with proven processes that increase success.

Leadership Transitions

The challenges leaders face as they transition into new roles are substantial, and the pressure to deliver can be immense.

AIIR Executive Assessment increases the probability of a smooth transition. Our proprietary multi-source assessment methodology identifies internal and external challenges leaders will face in a new role, as well as the competencies they will need to overcome those challenges.

Diversity and Inclusion

Inclusion starts at the top, with leader behaviors that engender a sense of belonging and enable colleagues to express their true selves without fear of repercussions, a condition called psychological safety.

AIIR Executive Assessment synthesizes hundreds of data points to identify individuals with leadership styles that create a culture of psychological safety, inclusion, and belonging.

Culture Change

Most organizations can describe their culture. Few use a data-driven approach to uncover the nuances and overarching themes that drive it. Fewer still use that data to identify the culture they need in the future, and the leaders capable of facilitating such a transformation.

AIIR Executive Assessment aligns a company’s strategy with its culture, then uses this information as a decision-making input in executive selection.

Mergers and Acquisitions

When it comes to M&A, the human factor is key. More than 70% of mergers and acquisitions fail to achieve their objectives, and 60% of M&As fail completely. The number one reason cited? Incompatible company cultures.

AIIR Executive Assessment drives successful M&A by investigating executive leadership capabilities, senior leadership team dynamics, each company’s culture, and the desired culture that will facilitate achieving the vision.
