To thrive in the new world of work, selecting & promoting leaders based on the right behaviours is critical.
How a leader behaves is just as important as the competencies, skills and experience they bring. Day-to-day behaviour is what maximises performance in a sustainable way – especially in uncertain and highly pressurised times.
The Performance Leader Identifier (PLI) is an evidence-based tool designed for senior and Executive level recruitment and promotion. It is very different to traditional selection tools, assessing proven behaviours, not personality.
“…[Personality tests] account for approximately 5% of an employee’s job success while the other 95% of their performance is unaccounted for by personality.”
Beau Baez, H. (2013) Personality Tests in Employment Selection: Use With Caution, Cornell HR Review
We used the PLI to support the recruitment of our Chief Executive position. The selection panel found the feedback report insightful, and brought additional depth to their discussions with the candidates.
We will be using the PLI as our preferred profiling tool to support future Executive selection processes.
