Assessment tools

We incorporate a number of key tools into our individual and team coaching to enhance our clients’ development. We find that these tools provide useful snapshots of our clients’ personalities and capabilities. Some of them also provide our clients with global leadership benchmarks and help them to see where they are in comparison to a global database and where they need to stretch themselves to be in alignment with global leadership capabilities. The tools are not meant to be used as standalone methods.

The Leadership Circle Profile™

The Leadership Circle Profile is designed to accelerate leadership effectiveness beyond traditional competency-based approaches. When it comes to developing leaders, training to competencies alone does not work very well. For more rapid and lasting results, it is crucial that organisations help leaders gain deeper insight into their behaviour and what is driving it.

The Leadership Circle Profile™ is the only 360-degree competency assessment that simultaneously provides focused competency feedback while revealing the underlying assumptions that are causing a leader’s pattern of strengths and limitations.

The Leadership Circle Profile™ helps leaders understand the relationship between how they habitually think, how they behave, and, more importantly, how all this impacts their current level of leadership effectiveness. Once this awareness is established, leadership development can proceed. Without it, change rarely happens.

Most importantly, it is unique because it reveals a leader’s operating system – the internal assumptions or beliefs that guide behaviour in both domains. This system allows managers to see how their inner world translates into an effective or ineffective leadership. Using this approach increases the inner awareness that correspondingly affects outward behaviour.


The Leadership Culture Survey Profile

Effective leadership outperforms ineffective leadership, which is why we think leadership is a primary competitive advantage and strategic priority. The effectiveness of the leadership system in an organisation determines, to a large degree, the organisation’s performance, especially in volatile and uncertain business environments.

Now there is an assessment that measures the health of your leadership system—the culture of leadership in your organisation. The Leadership Culture Survey is the most comprehensive assessment available on the overall health and effectiveness of the leadership in your organisation.
Used for your entire organisation, or just a leadership team, the Leadership Culture Survey reveals valuable data, tells you how your people view their current leadership culture, and compares that reality to the optimal culture they desire. The “gap” between the current culture and desired culture instantly reveals key opportunities for leadership development.
The Leadership Culture Survey also measures how your leadership culture compares to that of other organisations. A Leadership Culture Survey will:

  • Establish a compelling rationale for change.
  • Focus leadership development efforts.
  • Delineate cultural challenges associated with acquisitions, mergers and restructuring plans.
  • Correlate leadership to productivity, profits, turnover, and other bottom line metrics.
