This project has started with design of the assessment tools. Our consultants created various exercises and group activities for young managers to demonstrate problem solving skills, result orientation, teamwork and influencing skills. Before running the assessment centre we had trained senior managers and formed a group of assessors from external consultants and internal managers. After the assessment centre each participant (even those who failed) received a feedback on their performance during selection process. For this group of talents we also designed a development program, consisting of four modules: leadership skills, emotional intelligence, change management and influencing without authority. In addition, each participant had a mentor, and all of them worked on internal optimisation projects that they had to defence in front of the top management group.
In a year, the client asked us to run similar project for another group of young and talented managers.
