You look for assurance in every other decision you make in business. Why not do the same when it comes to your leadership talent?
At Harvey Nash, we know people. Hundreds of senior people, all over the world, walk through our doors every week. We understand how they influence an organisation’s culture - and success.
We also know that diligent decision making is part of a culture of success. Selecting talent, especially at a senior level, should be no exception. Our leadership services give you the in-depth insight that should guide all your big decisions – and the assurance that you’ve chosen the very best for your business.
What can we do for you?
We help our clients take decisive action on people in the context of:
- Short-listed, or final, candidate selection (internal and external)
- Succession planning
- Executive development & transition
- Mergers & acquisitions, strategic change or reorganisation
- Building new management teams
- Pre-investment due diligence
Harvey Nash’s business-minded leadership
consultants all have ‘lived’ senior-level experience,
and deep expertise in the use of tools which are
both highly predictive and credible for those
experiencing them. We apply these to provide a
comprehensive analysis of capability, potential
and risk, as well as of ‘fit’ with your organisation.
Top senior talent delivers up to 50%
better ROI on salary* compared to
average performers. So it’s simply good
business sense to require assurance that you
know what you’re getting from a candidate,
or what you’ve got, with a team.

How do we work?
We start by understanding what high performance in role or for the team would look like, to create a blueprint for talent evaluation. We deploy the best mix of tools for the requirements of the role(s), and the goals and culture of your business, from:
- personality (psychometric) assessments,
- ability and critical reasoning tests,
- culture & motivational fit inventories,
- structured, in-depth interviews,
- 360 feedback,
- assessment activities such as business simulations, role plays and group exercises.
We provide comprehensive feedback to you, whether we’ve evaluated an individual or a team. We always offer it to the participant, too, to create transparency and add value in the process.
We can help you explore and address the implications of the data, whether for the purposes of:
- renewed talent sourcing,
- supporting on-boarding and development,
- team formation or development, or
- succession planning.
And we work globally, extending the consistency, flexibility and scalability of your own HR processes.
