The Korn Ferry Leadership Assessment is a tool used by organizations to evaluate the leadership qualities, potential, competencies, and areas for development among their employees or candidates for leadership positions. Developed by Korn Ferry, a global organizational consulting firm, this assessment is designed to help companies identify leaders who can drive their organization forward and ensure that leadership talent aligns with the strategic goals and culture of the organization.

The assessment typically measures a range of competencies and traits, including:

  1. Leadership Styles: How an individual leads, including their approach to directing, supporting, delegating, and motivating teams.
  2. Emotional Intelligence: The ability to understand and manage one’s own emotions and the emotions of others, crucial for effective leadership.
  3. Decision Making: Assessing an individual’s approach to decision-making, including their ability to analyze situations, solve problems, and make judicious choices under pressure.
  4. Drive and Ambition: The level of an individual’s motivation, their ambition, and their resilience in the face of challenges.
  5. Strategic Thinking: The ability to think ahead, plan long-term strategies, and understand the broader impact of decisions.
  6. Collaboration and Influence: Evaluating how well an individual works with others, builds relationships, and influences stakeholders.

The assessment process may include a variety of methodologies such as psychometric tests, situational judgment tests, in-depth interviews, and simulations that mimic real-life business challenges.

Types of Questions and Components

1. Self-assessment Questions

  • Leadership Style: “Describe a situation where you had to adapt your leadership approach to achieve a goal. What did you do, and what was the outcome?”
  • Emotional Intelligence: “Recall a time when you had to manage a highly emotional reaction from a team member. How did you handle it, and what was the result?”

2. Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs)

  • Decision Making: You’re presented with a scenario where you must choose between several strategic options under time pressure, each with its own set of risks and benefits.
  • Problem Solving: A complex problem is described, and you’re asked to select the best approach from multiple options, justifying your choice.

3. Personality Questionnaires

  • Questions designed to assess traits such as openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism (emotional stability).

4. Cognitive Ability Tests

  • Verbal Reasoning: Understanding and reasoning using concepts framed in words.
  • Numerical Reasoning: Ability to work with numbers, graphs, and charts to make decisions.
  • Abstract Reasoning: The ability to understand complex concepts and identify patterns.

5. In-depth Interviews

  • Behavioral questions asking for specific examples of past behavior as a predictor of future behavior.
  • Questions designed to probe deeper into the competencies and experiences listed on your CV or application.

6. Simulation Exercises

  • Group Exercises: Working with others to solve a business problem, which assesses teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving skills.
  • Role-play: Taking on a role within a simulated business scenario to assess how you interact with others, make decisions, and lead.
