“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.”

Leaders and people managers impact everything from profits to productivity, employee engagement, and customer loyalty. Unfortunately, data from our leadership simulation assessments tell us that good leaders and people managers 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. McKinsey reports that 90% of new executives wish they had managed their leadership transition differently.
The good news is that the significant leadership and frontline manager 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 and people managers — 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 and people managers are set up to succeed?
Leadership Simulation Assessments for High Stakes Roles
Each 3-hour “day-in-the-life” assessment places leaders and people managers in a high-stakes simulation of their future role to measure their readiness using live role-players for a realistic simulation experience. Capabilities are benchmarked against a global pool of leaders and managers in similar roles to provide additional data points for comparison.
Business readiness assessments target frontline managers, midlevel managers, and senior executives. Sales assessments target sales reps, sales managers, and sales leaders.
Typical leadership assessment reports provide details about leadership readiness, performance, potential, skill gaps, bench strength, and suggested leadership development plans.
On average, leaders who follow the assessment-driven development plans:
