The assignments are generally same as in the selection process and career assessment, but majorly it focuses on leading qualities, like delegating and defending your own position.
At first, leadership qualities are checked with some kind of personality questionnaire. Role plays, may be added at the next leg to note the candidate’s reactions in certain situations so as to determine whether he/she is best suited for the job. Situations like “how would you respond, if your employees don’t follow your command?” can be asked to check the charisma of the candidate.
After the management assessment, the report is prepared in which the position of the candidate is concluded. Whether he/she belongs in a managerial position or not is determined and the report is forwarded to the employer. A copy of the report is given to the employee as well, to audit the reviews and understand his/her character and the scopes of improvement for the candidate’s personal benefit.
