GONIN Leadership Audit + Development AG offers you high-quality assessment and development centers, feedback and development meetings + leadership consulting and development in Zurich and Bern. The Assessment Center method was originally developed in the military. The primary goal after the First World War was to select from the large holdings those individuals herauszuﬁltern who actually had the necessary potential for a further career. Due to the rapid economic upswing after the Second World War, more and more companies had the problem that they had to recruit more cadres (selection rate) than the labour market (basic rate) offered.
In order to attract the best people faster than their competitors, business enterprises first reacted in the USA and then increasingly in Europe with the use of assessment centres. The goal is still today, with a reliable and valid method for personnel selection, to ensure an early assessment of potential. In an ever faster changing, disruptive world, management and specialist cadres must constantly face up to new challenges: Whoever meets the skills sought today may be out of place tomorrow. In leadership development, the context must be taken into account, but the importance of flexibility and creativity must not be underestimated.
