Case Studies

Our experience includes work with a diverse range of private and public sector organisations in the UK, Europe, US and Middle East.

Here’s how we’ve helped just a few of our clients to improve the performance of their individuals, teams and organisations.

“The insight Talent ID provided was invaluable. It enabled us to make confident people decisions that benefited our business and customers.
The participants themselves got a huge amount out of the process and they’re still using the insights as part of their development.
At an organisational level we now have better visibility of our top talent and who has the potential to progress to more senior leadership roles.”

Managing Director, Business Services Company

Helping a Private Equity owned international insurance company to plan succession and develop and engage future executive leaders.

Talent ID worked with the Executive Committee to agree what was meant by ‘talent’ and ‘potential’, and to define what high performance leadership looks like in their business.

We created a set of scaled leadership behaviours then assessed nominated individuals against them using in-depth behavioural interviews, personality profiling and a 360 degree emotional intelligence feedback survey.

We produced detailed individual feedback reports and coached participants whilst exploring insights and challenging their thinking.

The Executive Leadership Team received data and insights into the group – collective strengths, development gaps and themes in the context of their business strategy. We worked with them to build a clear succession pipeline and leadership development plan.

They now have a clear view of the talent pipeline and the performance and potential of leaders that report to them. They know where and how to invest in leadership development to get the best return.

Participants have deep insights into their strengths, development priorities, personality and potential. They are re-energised and focused on their development and have built personalised action plans that will benefit them and the business.

Supporting a high-growth technology company to select a new Chief Finance and Strategy Officer.

Talent ID worked with the existing Executive Committee to understand their business strategy and challenges.  We then defined success factors for the role – behaviours that would equate to high-performance.

We undertook in-depth executive assessments with short-listed internal and external candidates using psychometrics and interviews.  This gave the decision makers data and impartial and in-depth insights into each candidate’s fit for the role, and any associated risks that would need to be managed if they were appointed.  We also provided each candidate with feedback on their assessment performance.

The Executive Committee was able to make a confident, informed decision whilst identifying and managing risk.  They have a clear understanding of where the successful candidate is likely to excel and where they need support.

The candidate themselves has greater self-awareness from their feedback session.  This focused on how they could establish themselves in the role, make a positive impact in their first 90 days and close their development gaps.

Working with a digital strategy agency to help the technically-orientated Partners to understand the impact they were having on their teams, and how they could be more effective leaders.

Talent ID facilitated a 360-degree feedback process using an emotional intelligence-based survey.

The Partners were able gather balanced feedback from peers, direct reports, customers and other stakeholders. They could see how often others observe them demonstrating key leadership behaviours. Verbatim comments helped to bring their feedback to life.

One to one coaching sessions helped each Partner to understand their feedback and identify key actions that would help to make them more impactful leaders.  Some of the Partners asked Talent ID to provide ongoing coaching to support them as they develop.

All the Partners took different things from their feedback. In some cases, it reinforced what they already knew but gave them renewed energy to develop themselves. For others, there were some surprises and challenges to overcome. All those involved found it a valuable experience.
