Leadership Assessment

With the Option for 360 Feedback 

All coaching engagements begin with an assessment to gain an understanding of current leadership styles and potential.  We use several proven leadership assessments. Clients can take the assessment at the beginning of the program and along the way to measure changes and growth.  This ensures progress is being made and provides an opportunity to adapt as needed along the way.

Assessments that are currently being used: 

The Energy Leadership Index™ (ELI) is a one-of-a-kind assessment that enables you to understand your perceptions, behaviors, and overall leadership capabilities. This assessment differs from traditional personality assessments.  The ELI assessment measures how you make decisions and engage under normal circumstances and how you lead and act under stress. Understanding this increases awareness and allows you to significantly improve your leadership performance. 

The EQi 2.0 Emotional Intelligence Assessment is comprised of sixteen components of socio-emotional functioning that play a critical role in your overall effectiveness.  This assessment measures potential for performance and is comprised of behaviors that can be altered or changed.  Your individual results examine your leadership through four key dimensions:  authenticity, coaching, insight and innovation.

The Everything DiSC® assessment is a personal development tool that measures an individual’s tendencies and preferences.  It is designed to support an individual’s understanding of their work-related behaviors, the behaviors of others, and how to apply this knowledge in work situations.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ assessment helps professionals and their organizations discover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team.  With this program, participants will learn how, as an individual or as a team, they score on the key components of the model:  trust, conflict, commitment, accountability, and results.

The 360 Refined™ leadership assessment identifies 22 leadership skills that are divided into two categories:  core leadership skills and adaptive leadership skills.  Core leadership skills are those that are typically most apparent in leaders who are being promoted.  Adaptive leadership skills are the above and beyond skills that differentiate good leaders from exceptional leaders.  

Individual coaching programs

Individual coaching programs begin with a leadership assessment. Results from this will create a baseline of your current leadership profile and helps in designing your leadership action plan.  More information on assessments is listed in the assessment section.

Typically 8-12 People

Individuals can join a small group discussion to create synergies and inspire conversations among like-minded leaders with similar interests in leadership development.  These groups are fun and cost-effective for those who want to develop but aren’t quite ready for an individual coaching program.  

Groups typically meet monthly for six months to discuss relevant topics.  Individual one-on-one coaching can be included as well as individual assessments prior to the first group meeting.
