Turn people intelligence into a competitive advantage.
Culture is particularly difficult.
Misaligned culture will impede business performance, damage reputation, discourage employee engagement and invite activist shareholders.
Research shows that culture is “the difference that makes the difference”.
Epsen Fuller’s cultural framework and diagnostic tools help companies understand their current culture, identify the cultural ‘desired state’ to support their business strategy, and use these insights to enhance Board, leadership, and team dynamics.
Identifying Your Cultural Framework
- An objective and validated measure of how culture is recognized and insight into the dominant culture of your organization
- An assessment of the discrepancy between current and preferred culture
- A comparison before and after reengineering, change, or merger
- Clarity of the preferred culture as a preliminary point for a change initiative
Culture is ordinarily experienced as ‘second nature’ or ‘that’s how we do things here’; that’s why a description of it is not easy, while changing culture is even harder.
Leadership Assessment Delivers Actionable Insight.
When critical leadership decisions must be made — whether due to a merger or acquisition, re- structuring, new strategy or growth initiative, a transition in CEO or division leadership, or identifying CEO and C-Suite successor candidates – you can make these decisions confidently and avoid costly mistakes when applying in-depth insight into executive talent.
Our assessment experts accurately assess senior executive teams at these critical moments, developing a talent map of your executive team and giving you actionable information.
Beyond the boilerplate assessment programs that proliferate in the market, our panel of assessment experts deliver the only multi-method, customized executive assessment approach that is highly predictive of leadership success.
We combine an evaluation of business and functional proficiency and with our proprietary measurement of Leadership Quotient (LQ) — the behavioral competencies that enable superior executive performance in a specific role.

Our assessment approach provides accurate and objective information about key executives’ Background and Skillset, Behavioral Competencies and Motivators, enabling you to make informed leadership decisions.
Executive coaching dramatically improves performance.
Recent research from Stanford shows that two-thirds of chief executives don’t get any coaching or leadership advice from outside their companies, yet nearly 100% of those bosses say they wish that they did.
Similar to elite athletes, even the best-of-the-best CEOs and senior executives have their blind spots. Infact, they could dramatically leverage their strengths, improve performance and be more effective leaders with an outside perspective.
Through a highly personalized one-on-one relationship, executives identify their core challenges, define their starting point and map the road to their desired ‘future state’.
Coaching is typically used to address leadership development, management change, team alignment, and motivational skills.
Executives are pushed to stretch themselves to reach higher goals and maximize potential.
