Effective leadership has never been more important for private-equity backed businesses. But pinpointing exactly what kind of leaders will unlock value in a fast-growth environment has never been an exact science - until now.


Introducing PACE - the only behavioural evaluation model that objectively measures leaders and leadership teams of high-growth businesses.

What Makes PACE Different?

We measure what matters for value creation

Alternative desc

We focus on behaviours, not personality


PACE goes beyond traditional psychometric tests; evaluating dynamic behaviours, rather than static personality traits. We explore an individual's ability to deliver outcomes, not harmony. 

We are unique to high-growth businesses


PACE is the only behavioural analytics tool designed especially for leaders of high-growth private-equity backed businesses, and with a specific focus on the behaviours that drive value creation.
