Assessing and Developing Talents

We design and realize interventions aimed at valuing and developing managers and professionals personal qualities and talent through:

  • Assessment Centres
  • Development Centers

In doing this, we are using different processes and tools in accordance to the aim of the intervention and the target.

We can set up classic and professional Assessment Centers based on models and tools which are well-proven in order to give to management a clear profile of the hi pos'.

Conversely we are use to set up and mange more Developmental Assessments, where the aim is mainly to encourage self awareness and enhance self development and self-agency in the organizational context.

We are inspired to the High Performance Model of H. Schroder fro University of Florida, having adapted it to various contexts and audiences.

For the same reason we use professional tools for assessing and for feedback reporting. Our reports are neat and deep to the point.

Decathlon Consulting Human Qualities consultants possess the method, the experience and the capacity to make the Assessment experience a valuable one, both for individual candidates and for the organization. We help people to know more about themselves and support organizations to reflect on resources and make smart choices.


Selection processes

We are not doing Recruitment: this is not our core business!

Conversely, we have the knowledge and the know-how to offer the following services which are close to selection processes. These services are not generally offered by recruiting companies.

1. We assess candidates' psychological and behavioral profile to support customers to make a choice about the right person at the right position at that specific moment. 

2. We set up and realize standardized and objective procedures to evaluate through testing candidates' qualities/attitudes/motives required to enter University or Master courses. We provide to clients a list of participants.
