CEO Assessment

Sterling Black provides genuinely independent and objective CEO and C-Suite assessments. We are not a search firm, we are a specialist assessment house.


We provide direct, data-driven advice on the selection of leaders.


Our approach includes:

Custom designed success profiles and leadership models to underpin the assessment;

Tailored methodologies that can include tools such as psychometric assessment, ability measure, assessment centres, verbal or online 360, various interview techniques;

Feedback delivery methodologies that are adapted to your culture and desired impact;

Development oriented reports with clear guidance and tools for how to improve;

Organisational reporting that uses data, benchmarks and predictions of readiness, potential and fit to different situations to give real guidance to Boards and CEOs.

We also provide the option for all our assessments to be followed by a supportive developmental coaching process for each candidate.
