Leader Assessment

Do you know how you’re coming across as a leader?

Every leader can benefit from quality input from those you work closely with. Leaders also gain advantage from the high-yield objective feedback of an outside executive coach with a 90-day Master Plan that capitalizes on your strengths and shores up your weaker areas.

The Leader Assessment process includes a 360-degree inventory and two personality profile assessments. Although we have a variety of 360 assessment instruments available to us, we primarily use the Leadership Effectiveness Analysis (LEA) from Management Research Group (MRG), a global leadership research and development organization. This reliable and validated online instrument is available in several languages, can be normed against country-specific data, and can be customized for each leader to include several open-ended questions.

The self-assessment portion of the leadership assessment process uses MBTI® Step II expanded interpretative instrument and the FIRO-Business Leadership assessment.

What’s Measured

The assessment process measures perceptions of 22 core Leadership Practices grouped under 6 focus areas: Vision, Followership, Implementing the Vision, Following Through, Achieving Results, and Team Playing.

The instrument’s accompanying Leadership Impact Report measures 26 Leadership Success Factors grouped under 9 impact categories: Organizational Impact, Credibility with Management, Credibility with Peers and Direct Reports, Business Knowledge, Cognitive Skills, Taking Charge, Social Skills, Working with Others, and Managerial Impact.

The open-ended questions along with the MBTI® and the FIRO Business Leadership Report give leaders a wealth of information on how to take full advantage of their natural leadership abilities and expand the personal resources needed to manage the demands of working in an organization.

Together, the 360 and self-assessments present a robust picture of strengths and development areas. These data points form the basis of the Master Plan that is then designed within the context of the leader’s organizational goals and objectives. Executive Coaching is often a follow-on from the Leader Assessment process.
