We are very excited to announce the appointment of Dr. Charley Morrow as Vice President, Assessments. Dr. Morrow will join the team to oversee Linkage’s Assessment practice globally.
“Our concentration on the assessment, measurement and evaluation of leaders and leadership development efficacy is central to our approach to developing leaders worldwide,” said Linkage’s President, Harley Ostis, “We look forward to working with Charley to build our current suite of offerings and to work with our partners worldwide to bring our assessment solutions to new audiences.”
Dr. Morrow has a PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Tulane University. He has spent the better part of his career as a leadership and talent assessment expert in both the public and private sectors. His academic research deals with measurement issues, methods of estimating the return of human resources interventions, and employee survey methods. Dr. Morrow’s research has been published in Personnel Psychology and presented at regional, national, and international professional conferences.
“I am thrilled to be back at Linkage following a decade long hiatus,” said Dr. Morrow. “What Linkage has today – a combination of world class developmental assessments, real-world learning experiences, and seasoned coaches all result in driving behavior change and measurable business results. It is incredibly exciting to be building on what is already a very integrated approach to leadership development.”
Most recently, Charley founded and led Sage Assessments, a firm focused on leveraging assessment, measurement, and analytics to align development needs with strategic objectives. He developed and brings with him to Linkage the REAL Engagement Survey, a tool that uncovers opportunities to improve employee involvement by asking questions that are linked to business results, analyzing the results in productive ways, and facilitating conversations that lead to organizational insights and powerful improvements. He also developed a proprietary survey that builds board capabilities and effectiveness. The instrument allows an in-depth review of member skills and knowledge, meeting structure and process, as well as board culture and structure.
Linkage’s Assessment Solutions equip leaders, teams, and organizations with insights to achieve breakthrough business results. The tools, in combination with world-class coaching, facilitation, and leadership development experiences, help organizations achieve bottom line results to create capable, committed, and aligned workforces.
