Lighting Science Group selects New CEO using HPS’ CEO Selection Process and Leadership Potential Equation



April 29, 2011 - The Leadership Potential Equation System uses a proven scientific model to select the right leader for the job.

High Performing Systems (HPS), Inc., is pleased to announce that Lighting Science Group Corporation has named James F. (Jim) Haworth as its new CEO. Lighting Science Group chose HPS to lead the selection process based on its expertise and impressive work in CEO/executive selection and its proprietary Leadership Potential Equation. Mr. Haworth was chosen from among dozens of highly-qualified, international candidates across both the lighting and high-tech industries.

High Performing Systems’ CEO selection process included a rigorous pre-hire screening assessment designed to find the best-fit CEO to take Lighting Science Group forward. The Leadership Potential Equation (LPE), an assessment process designed to help leaders find their best-fit Role in the organization, was a key component in the candidate screening and selection process. Unlike other leader assessments, the LPE identifies current and future potential, plotting a leader’s growth trajectory across time. This allows clients to put the right leaders into the right roles at the right time across their careers.
