Chief Executive Officer/CEO

RA’s CEO Test provides predictive information about a candidate’s strategic, leadership and visionary work style.

Pre-Employment Test

Purpose and when to use it: The Chief Executive Officer/CEO Test is a short but thorough personality-only assessment developed exclusively for the pre-employment screening of an organization’s future director. The CEO test should be used to hire successful and effective executive leaders who possess the ability to prioritize, innovate, and conceptualize a strategic vision while directing leadership teams and interfacing with members of the board. In these roles, achievement motivation, confidence, stress tolerance, and strong and persuasive interpersonal communication abilities are best-fit traits for maximum success.

About the Test:

  • Includes a set of personality dimensions assessing important and functional traits for chief executive roles across a variety of job industries and settings.
  • This test takes most individuals 20-30 minutes to complete.

Target group: We recommend using this test for senior level executives in the “C suite” of the organizational structure (e.g, CEO but also COO, CFO), as well as company presidents, executive directors, managing directors and general managers.

What the Report Gives You: The CEO Test report provides a graphical display of personality trait scores, score interpretation guidance–including a detailed list of strengths and developmental concerns–and suggested interview questions.

Testing Process: RA’s online personality testing can be done from any device with a reliable internet connection. The use of mobile phones is discouraged. Test results are provided immediately.

Recommended Options: Testing for aptitude can provide useful and performance-predictive information about your candidate. We highly recommend the General Cognitive Aptitude Test to give you a quick assessment of mental capacity.
