Assessments and evaluation instruments are a means to the end, not an end in themselves.  They are a starting place, providing valuable information for: 

  1. Selection of Leaders
  2. Development of Leaders
  3. Succession Planning
  4. Transitions

We choose tools that enable us to diagnose individuals and organizations quickly yet thoroughly so that the emphasis can be placed on application and sustainable change.  Our colleague, Dr. Dan Snively, an expert in the field of leadership assessments, has created two instruments that we regularly use: 

These tools are among the most comprehensive leadership assessment instruments available, providing validated feedback on leadership behaviors and team roles.  Both tools evaluate

  1. Personal Traits
  2. Personal Competencies
  3. Emotional Intelligence
  4. Critical Thinking
  5. Team Roles

The missing link between assessments and application is coaching.  We help leaders understand themselves, release their potential, and develop a performance plan to improve over the long-haul.
