Elea is a cloud-based, AI-driven leadership development programme. The programme allows leaders to participate in an engaging and interactive AI-enabled, online development process to identify leadership strengths and development areas. Elea is aimed at key middle to senior managers in organisations, specialists with a leadership inclination and high potential junior managers requiring exposure to a unique accelerated development opportunity.
With over 40 years of industry experience, Evalex delivers extensive assessment, talent management, leadership development and potential identification solutions. We have a strong partnering focus with our clients and leverage data, research, and technology to develop our solutions. These solutions integrate with each other in an eco-system that provides our clients with reliable and valid information to enable sound talent decision-making and to assist individuals to realise their potential.
Elea puts across the latest and freshest observations of leadership functioning within a business context, highly relevant to today, and based on the reality of what leaders are actually doing (practical), not what you think they should be doing (theoretical). It presents a ground-breaking leadership framework and assessment approach for leading in this modern and increasingly complex digital age.
Initial Diagnostic Phase
Elea provides for quick, easy, and efficient setup, which allows participants to complete the process online at their own pace. During the initial diagnostic phase of Elea, the participant is required to complete a business simulation and deal with 3-5 key leadership situations such as operations, staff, client, sales or financial management scenarios. Eva then analyses their results and compares them with more than 12,000 leaders from over 500 organisations across more than 50 countries.
Learning and Development Phase
Upon completion of the initial diagnostic phase, the participant will receive immediate access to our cutting-edge online digital development portal. The portal allows the participant to proactively engage with and explore their diagnostic information to build a personalised development plan which includes their strengths, development areas and learning interventions. This learning phase allows the participant to develop a new set of behavioural habits based on carefully curated articles, video clips, training courses and the opportunity to identify subject matter specialists with whom to discuss relevant areas.
Second Diagnostic Phase
Using a ‘do, learn, do, learn, do, learn’ methodology, the system provides participants with an opportunity to complete Elea a second time with an alternative set of business issues. Upon completion of this phase, participants can again access their digital development report, which allows them to compare the outcomes of their first diagnostic phase against their second diagnostic phase to find out how they have progressed.
Second and Third Learning and Development Phases
The participant’s updated development plan will now indicate how they have progressed and isolate the areas that still require focus and development. Elea then allows for a third diagnostic iteration and repeat of the learning and development process to embed learning and ensure acceleration.
The Elea Assessment Methodology
We applied artificial intelligence to analyse the responses of 15,000 leaders who have completed our leadership simulations. The database consists of 33 million words, and leadership participants from more than 35 countries and 500 companies across a range of industries who dealt with 16-24 business scenarios, situations and challenges.
AI enabled us to investigate and analyse the behaviours, competencies, thought processes and styles that leaders engage or utilise to deal with business situations, issues and challenges. What was achieved is an artificial neurological network of themes, behaviours, words and competencies.
We then identified and defined 13 domains and 38 competencies, which form part of the Elea Leadership Framework – a truly scientific derivative of competencies that leaders engage in to deal with situations in our modern business world.
Sourcing and Investigating
Operating and Executing
Organising and Arranging
Communication and Collaborating
Motivating and Inspiring
The AI solutions we have created were built from the unique space where data science, mathematics, organisation psychology, psychometrics, computational linguistics and leadership frameworks overlap to create an extremely potent engine that fires up all the algorithms needed to do our research and power our assessment and development engines.
The application of AI makes for a far more robust and reliable analysis of information and assessment of an individual.
Elea is powered by EVA, an AI-enabled digital and virtual assessor that emulates the observational, interpretive and cognitive processes of a psychologist in assessing leadership behaviour and competence. EVA matures, evolves, learns and becomes more sophisticated during every cycle of assessment and interpretation.
Business challenges and content presented in the assessment have been extensively researched to represent the real business issues that leaders in most organisations need to deal with
