Listen to Adam Torres’ full interview with Angela Navarro on the Podcast on innovation, mission matters.
How did you start with the business?
As a human capital strategist, Navarro’s entire career has focused on research, recruiting and consulting. When she worked as chief operations and talent officer at a global consulting firm, she saw firsthand how many capable and talented executives are hired but fail to get started – or sometimes even crash and are burning. Pushed to understand why, she soon realized that these executives needed a roadmap to show them how to use their “leadership DNA” to advance the growth of their organizations as a whole, as well as their own. career.
So, as president and managing partner of Beecher Reagan’s Leadership Results practice, they’ve amassed a vast dataset of successful placements that performed well at top professional services firms.
Today, she uses insights from her journey, along with more than 20 years of data and algorithms, as she leads Catalyte Leadership Acceleration to help companies assess, benchmark, align and accelerate leaders.
Tell us more about the Beecher Reagan spin-off.
As part of the leadership results practice at Beecher Reagan, the Catalyte team developed the Verity Leadership AssessmentSM, powered by Hogan, as a tool to assess leaders and better understand how to accelerate performance. As Catalyte became its own entity, Verity remained at the heart of the company’s services.
Today, Catalyte’s suite of services is designed to accelerate leaders’ navigation strategies as they begin a new leadership role. Catalyte’s services also create hiring and development strategies for professional services firms to increase hiring accuracy, improve leadership engagement, retain existing leaders and the next generation of leaders, and achieve greater success overall.
Verity: A Key Predictor of Executive Success
For its leadership assessments, Catalyte uses Verity – the only proprietary, industry-specific assessment of its kind – to accelerate leadership talent. Verity is built in partnership with Hogan and takes 30-45 minutes to complete.
“Once you pass the assessment, you meet with one of our executive advisors to unpack the data,” says Navarro. “We’re talking to you about your leadership DNA through the lens of your current role, at any given time. Whether you’re joining a new role, recently promoted, or looking to accelerate performance to meet growth goals specific, we use this role context combined with data from Verity to help you craft a tailored strategy moving forward.
Verity’s assessments provide insight into a leader’s performance in a professional services environment, she notes, by comparing them to a dataset of highly successful fellow leaders.
“We can find that you are high impact on management, driven by business and care about giving back to the organization,” she continues. “Then, as we bring together the business imperatives and the context of the role, we can offer leaders concrete steps to better fit into this organization. At the corporate level, our work helps support diverse talent and underrepresented minorities. Companies can increase partner performance and benchmark talent to ensure they are hiring for both fit and culture contribution. »
How were the assessments made?
To date, Verity has an extremely high participation rate (85%) and positive feedback (100%). Seasoned executives often lament that they would have accomplished more throughout their careers if the assessment and actionable insights had been available to them a long time ago.
Today, Catalyte is focused on creating strong acceleration programs for leaders and teams to ensure their talent is developed to its full potential. Catalyte helps companies identify, develop and retain new generations to improve the culture of the organization as they grow.
What’s next for you, Catalyte and Verity?
“Our goal is to drive the growth of more organizations by maximizing the potential of their leaders,” says Navarro. “We make a difference for the companies and leaders we work with, and focus on accelerating performance one leader at a time.”
