Once you commit to the assessment process, the choice of consultant becomes really important. Feel free to meet with several consultants before you make your mind up.
The consultant who will partner you throughout the assessment process, must prove themselves capable of a non-judgemental approach, open-mindedness and empathy without over-indulgence.
You should ensure that s/he seeks to understand your expectations and will adapt their support strategy to your requirements and not the other way around.
The objectives of the assessment are laid down between the company, the consultant and yourself, however the content of your exchanges with the consultant are strictly confidential and no information concerning you may be disclosed without your consent.
A consultant who knows your business, your sector or your company and who has worked as a senior executive can help you to conduct the assessment in an effective manner but never forget that you are the expert...and that his/her role is to help you to get the most out of yourself.
Get your consultant to explain the whole assessment process and the methodology they will use. Some use 360 Degree personality tests to round out the different stages of the assessment.
