Leadership or employee assessments help you predict whether your organization’s workforce can deliver on its current and future strategy. Talent assessments illustrate an individual’s current capability and future potential. It helps to benchmark the skill sets and mindsets of an organization’s workforce, right from the CXO levels to the junior ranks.
Assessments help identify the development opportunities of the employees that match the capability development and cultural needs of the organization. Through measuring aspects such as emotional intelligence, personal leadership skills, and behavioral style, a leadership assessment can gauge an individual’s current capabilities as well as future leadership potential. Leadership development is a fundamental pillar of an organization’s growth strategy.
NWORX supports assessments that are development centric. NWORX accomplishes this in a few different ways:
In India, these assessments are designed in collaboration with our assessment partner, Quadrangle Consulting.

Situational Judgement Assessments
A situational judgment test, or a situational stress test or inventory is a type of psychological test that presents the test-taker with realistic, hypothetical scenarios and asks them to identify the most appropriate response or to rank the responses in the order they feel is most effective. This test is a measure of individual judgment and decision-making within the context of situations that employees may encounter in the workplace.
360-degree feedback is a process through which feedback from an employee's subordinates, colleagues, and supervisor, as well as as self-evaluation by the employee themselves, is gathered. This information is then used to identify the employee's strengths and weaknesses with the intention of increasing their effectiveness in the workplace.
Case Studies are customizable exercises that give users the opportunity to experience what they have learned throughout a leadership assessment by applying it to a real-world scenario and receiving immediate feedback. This assessment tool helps managers learn leadership and effective decision-making skills from the experiences of analyzing the case studies and discussing them with the group.
i. Behavioural Event Interviewing (BEI)
Behavioural Event Interviewing (BEI)is a technique that asks the candidate to describe a situation or an experience they had in a previous job. Responses may not be as polished as the traditional type of question because they cannot be rehearsed ahead of time. BEI is a structured interview methodology that helps uncover information about an applicant's past behavior, attitudes, and motivation. This tool analyses the applicants by asking them specific examples of situations in which they have been involved, information about their preferences for work environments and tasks, and the style of leadership, and also gather this information which helps to evaluate the participants. This also reduces hiring bias by capturing candidate strengths and weaknesses based on specific behaviors or events. It is effective for assessing the integrity, decision-making, interpersonal skills, and critical thinking.
ii. Role Plays
The NWORX leadership assessment program is designed to assess and develop the leadership skills of current and potential leaders accurately and reliably.
