The Leadership Insights approach is integral to all our work and has become the keystone in every executive search we undertake.

Edward W Kelley & Partners Limited (EWKP) announces the launch of Leadership Insights, a transparent, evidence-based approach to both executive search and leadership assessment that is now the foundation of all the firm's client engagements. This process provides clear and critical data on the capabilities of incumbent and prospective internal and external talent, which allows clients to make well-informed, timely, and sustainable decisions about their executive teams.

Ed Kelley, chairman and chief executive officer of EWKP, explains, "The Leadership Insights approach is integral to all our work and has become the keystone in every executive search we undertake."

With deep experience as executives and search leaders, consultants at EWKP, Mark Lelliott, David Spencer, and Dr. Marianne Broadbent, developed Leadership Insights to be flexible, allowing clients access to information specifically tailored to their unique needs, lexicon, and circumstances.

Global leader of the Leadership Assessment Practice and member of the board of directors at EWKP, Mark Lelliott, continues, "The new reality is that executives have to reinterpret their learning and experiences into different environments. Our approach provides clients with a powerful tool to make evidence-based decisions in light of shifting expectations, new risks, and increasing globalization. When applied internally, it provides a practical way for executives to know and grow the capabilities they currently have in place."

The central pillar of the Leadership Insights approach is Capability Framework, which provides the basis for both consistency and customization. The capability set is adapted for each organization and position and then becomes the basis for in-depth structured interviews to assess individuals, whole teams, or fields of candidates.

Dr. Marianne Broadbent, global head of EWKP's CIO Centre of Excellence, adds, "The Leadership Insights interview and assessment process requires maturity of judgment and we do not pass this role on to others; it is done by the senior consultants themselves."

This new and innovative approach greatly improves upon traditional management assessment and applies it to each and every client engagement, offering clients an alternative to conventional, more ad hoc executive search consulting and leadership skills assessment processes.

"Designed specifically to address modern human capital challenges, Leadership Insights provides clients with a powerful tool to minimize risk and maximize success," explains David Spencer, a managing director of EWKP and co-developer of Leadership Insights.
