Knowing your skill level and the skill level of your team is one of the most significant challenges you will face today. You and your organization must respond to demands from customers; changes in competition; changes in the economy; the results of mergers and acquisitions; increased government regulation; bottom line growth; technology advancements; as well as societal and environmental changes. Of course, the existence of these challenges is not new. However, the skills and ability that you need to get your organization through these challenges is what you need most.
The Skills Assessment Service
We, at the Leadership Science Institute (LSI), are Test Administrators for both the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and the International Coach Federation (ICF). This means we have access to hundreds of skills assessments in virtually all disciplines. We administer those assessments both online and in-person as a proctor. In addition, we perform pre-hire assessments to ensure your candidate is the right fit for the job.
The LSI approach to administering these assessments is designed to provide you with the current status of the skills and knowledge in your organization. The results will help you to create a skills development program that will help your organization to effectively deal with the aforementioned challenges… and, more!
Benefits of Skill Assessments
There are a number of ways in which you can benefit from the use of assessments. For example, these assessments can help you to determine the skill level of a potential new hire. They could aid your understanding of the current skill level of a newly promoted employee. Assessments can help you to ascertain the skill needs of someone not performing well in a particular assignment. Or, they could assist you in understanding the development needs of individual who has been given a new assignment. LSI will work with you in creating a “laser focused” individual development plan for each of these people.
