“LSA’s leadership simulation assessments for high stakes roles provided excellent insights to help identify and develop the key leaders best equipped to implement critical strategic growth shifts we needed to take our business to the next level.”
Vice President | Fortune 500 Technology Company

Leaders impact everything from profits to productivity, employee engagement, and customer loyalty. Unfortunately, data from our leadership simulation assessments tell us that good leaders are getting harder to find, develop, and keep.

Research from the Corporate Executive Board backs this up. They estimate that 50% to 70% of new leaders fail within 18 months of taking on a role, regardless of whether they were an external hire or promoted from within.

The good news is that the significant leadership failure risks can be prevented with the help of targeted leadership simulation assessments using proven technology and research-backed behavioral science.

Given the costs of recruiting, selecting, onboarding, and training leaders — especially in highly strategic and difficult to replace roles — wouldn’t it be great if you could better predict and prevent leadership failure and ensure that your key leaders are set up to succeed?

Leadership Simulation Assessments for High Stakes Roles
Each assessment places leaders in a simulation of their future role to measure their readiness. Capabilities are benchmarked against a global pool of leaders in similar roles to provide additional data points for comparison.

Business readiness assessments target frontline managers, midlevel managers, or senior executives. Sales assessments target sales reps or sales leaders.

  • For High Stakes Leadership Hiring
    Behavior-based interviewing and resumes do not always tell the whole story — especially for high stakes roles.

    This leadership hiring simulation creates a fair and objective opportunity for candidates to demonstrate their capabilities and relies on scientifically validated data to better identify top leadership talent against your core competencies.

    Because candidates must demonstrate their real-time leadership skills in a real-world scenario, the simulation combined with psychometric tests predicts leadership success better than any other applicant testing approach.

  • For High Stakes Leadership Development
    It can be daunting to identify leadership potential and performance for a given role — especially when leadership stakes are high.

    This research-backed leadership development simulation provides detailed leadership insights against your unique core competencies, personalized individual leadership development plans, targeted learning nudges, and the tracking of micro-behavior improvement over time.

    Real-time, you are able to track development, provide feedback, reinforce habits, and adjust individual development plans.

  • For High Stakes Succession Planning
    When it comes to identifying and developing leadership bench strength, this succession planning assessment helps to better identify high-potentials and measure successor readiness for highly strategic and critical roles. The fair, objective, and evidence-based approach also removes unconscious bias and personal preference from the succession process.

    Accurately predict when your key leaders will be ready to step up based upon the key leadership skills that define success in your unique organization for each unique role. Track progress and provide personalized leadership development plans to get people to the next level.

Typical leadership assessment reports provide details about leadership readiness, performance, potential, skill gaps, bench strength, and suggested leadership development plans.

Expected Results
On average, leaders who follow the assessment-driven development plans improve by 11% in twelve months.
