Dr. Timothy Weitzel improves his clients’ ability select the best executive candidates as well as to ensure that their executive teams achieve operational and strategic excellence. His Day-in-the-Life Simulation Assessment approach–used in conjunction with powerful personality and cognitive assessments–picks up where traditional candidate screening leaves off. He moves beyond the basics of job/experience matching, likeability interviewing and reference checking, to identify key business drivers specific to an organization. He then translates those drivers into the skills, behaviors, personality factors and aptitudes that are critical for the organization’s long-term success. This in-depth analysis generates a strategic Executive Success Profile unique to the vision, mission and culture of each organization.
