Executive Abilities: Implications for the Counselling and Training of Middle and Senior Executives.
Scissons, Edward H.
This paper outlines a model of psychometric needs assessment developed by the author and discusses how the model, which is designed to profile key abilities and weaknesses, could be applied to the needs assessment, counseling, and training of middle and senior executives. A pilot study on 130 middle management executives is examined in conjunction with a description of an ongoing research study on the application of the model. Implications of the study are discussed in terms of developmental vocational counseling and the mapping of lifelong training programs. A summary is provided of the attributes of the psychometric needs assessment model, citing its advantages and disadvantages and comparing it with more conventional needs assessment procedures. A number of diagrams, including one of the model, are presented. (LMS)
