Leadership Effectiveness Profile

There is no one skill that will make you an effective leader. Effective leadership is composed of a number of different competencies, or puzzle pieces. If all the pieces of the puzzle are not in place the effectiveness of the leader will be limited. Because the Leadership Effectiveness Profile is linked to a number of other Self Discovery assessments there is an opportunity to drill down even further into the puzzle and look more closely at the competencies that contribute to effective leadership.

This self-assessment helps you determine your strengths and development needs in eight core competencies that will help you become a more effective leader. It includes interpretative information and tips on how you can further develop your skills in each of the key areas:

1. Emotional intelligence
2. Contextual thinking
3. Directional clarity
4. Creative assimilation
5. Change orchestration
6. People enablement
7. Reciprocal communication
8. Driving persistence

This instrument measures an individual's competencies using 12 questions in each category and is scored on a 5 point Likert scale ranging from Almost Never to Almost Always. Scores for each competency are plotted onto a spider diagram (providing a quick visual representation of the leader's scores). From this an overall Leadership Effectiveness score is derived. The assessment provides simple interpretative data on what impact high or low scores in a specific area may have and some suggested development activities.

Although primarily intended as a self-assessment the questions have been worded so this tool can also be used for 180 or 360-degree feedback (by purchasing extra copies of this booklet - one for each respondent).

To enhance the insights gained from this Profile and help with the development of the Personal Action Plan we have developed the 12 Page Skill Builder Booklet.
