aKumen is LHH's proprietary assessment approach. Capability, motivation, and focus are the three key elements to leadership effectiveness and these mark the foundation of our approach to senior leadership assessment. It identifies a senior leader’s key strengths and weaknesses and uncovers potential areas of risk. These insights reveal where development would be most useful, and what can be done to help leaders develop the skills required to manage teams and drive business success.


aKumen looks at:


  • Capability – this assesses aspects of effective leadership

  • Motivation – this offers insights into what motivates a leader

  • Focus – this assesses decision-making and logic


We also use an assessment solution, aKuity, to reveal insights into an employee's personality and mindset and how this may play out in the workplace environment, and Orion to assess leadership potential.


Reporting is a key part of each programme. We:

  • Provide insights into your leadership’s capabilities set against your competitors.

  • Recognise areas of development that support your strategic objectives and aim to increase your market share.

  • Identify where leaders may be at risk from certain behaviours or mindsets and put measures in place to manage that risk.


aKumen can be integrated with different assessment solutions. There are three core solutions available, and each targets individuals at different levels of leadership:

 

  • aKumen ‘plus’ – Executive


    This programme examines four key areas: motivation, capability, focus and reputation.


  • aKumen – Senior Manager


    This programme examines three key areas: motivation, capability, and focus.


  • aKumen ‘lite’ – Mid-level Manager


    This programme examines two key areas: motivation and capability.


Assessment programmes are available online, as off-the-shelf or bespoke solutions, or delivered one-to-one. We also host a day-long group session that focuses on developing stronger, more effective teams.
