  1. Discovery Process 
The Discovery Process stands out as a unique and scientifically founded methodology based on Axiology, the study of values. 
In employing this approach, we evaluate your emotional intelligence, harmonizing it with your values and behaviours. 
Our diverse capabilities encompass:

  • Assessing the emotional pulse of employees, teams, or the entire organization,
  • Analyzing the emotional well-being of personnel,
  • Determining potential for specialized, project, or program roles,
  • Identifying trends in employee motivation,
  • Gaining insight into individuals’ aspirations for the future,
  • Enhancing capabilities,
  • Pinpointing individuals suitable for succession planning.

Through these multifaceted processes, we provide a comprehensive understanding to guide and optimize various aspects of personal and organizational development.
  1. Growth Mindset Advantage 

The Growth Mindset Advantage diagnostic assesses nine facets of an individual’s growth mindset and six dimensions of organizational culture that foster growth and learning. This diagnostic can be completed in just 15-20 minutes and is accessible on laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. The resulting reports offer valuable data and practical feedback for individuals, teams, and organizations.

  1. 360 Leadership Assessment Interviews

We conduct interviews with line managers, peers, subordinates, and external stakeholders to gather valuable insights into the leadership capabilities of participants. This methodology is particularly potent for C-Level and senior executives, offering more in-depth and comprehensive insights compared to a survey-based approach such as a 360 assessment conducted online.

Our goal is to provide our clients with a comprehensive assessment center solution that facilitates the identification, appraisal, and enhancement of their senior professionals and C-suite executives.

We adhere to international best practices to guarantee the delivery of a robust and impactful assessment process. The ecap Assessment Process encompasses tailored assessment center design, interviews, case studies, role plays, exercises, assessment tools, leadership evaluations, and feedback.

Furthermore, our assessment procedures can be conducted in a virtual, physical, or hybrid manner, ensuring flexibility and accessibility.

Our Career Risk Analysis Report identifies the ideal candidate for a given position by meticulously analysing vital data provided by our clients.

Our model is certified by the Team Coaching Global association, and its objective is to assess and elevate the mindsets and capabilities of leaders, teams, and organizations, empowering them to harness their full potential and optimize their performance in dynamic and uncertain environment.
