Assessments are valuable tools to help individuals explore their strengths, their blind spots and reveal a pathway for growth. We prefer to work with tools that are holistic, generative, and developmental. Here are a few of our preferred instruments.
The Leadership Circle Profile™ (LCP) 360° is a web-based tool designed to accelerate leadership effectiveness beyond traditional competency-based approaches. This is the only 360° 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 measures are correlated with stages of leadership development.
What makes this model so powerful is that not only does it assess the level of achievement of five key creative leadership competencies, but it also shows how to develop these by identifying core reactive assumptions that may limit one’s leadership capacities to meet today’s new normal.
There is a simpler version (Manager Edition) for managers that assumes the situations that they face are less complex than the ones faced by seasoned managers and executives. There is also a self-assessment that maps the individual’s perspective on their leadership strengths and areas for development.
The Collective Leadership Assessment™ is the most comprehensive assessment available on the overall health and effectiveness of leadership in the organization. It is based on the same integral framework as the Leadership Circle Profile. This survey reveals how people in the organization view your current leadership culture and how that compares to the optimal culture they desire. The “gap” between the current culture and desired culture instantly reveals key opportunities for leadership development. This tool helps build readiness for change at the team and organization levels. The Collective Leadership Assessment shows how leadership is showing up collectively. It helps you map a course to the kind of leadership culture that will outperform less effective leadership cultures. It is a valuable tool to help you to measure the emerging leadership culture over time and the effectiveness of leader development programs.
Emotional intelligence skills are critical for building relationships and teams, resolving conflict, solving problems, leading effectively and building resilience. The EQ-i 2.0 provides you with a detailed assessment of your areas of strength and potential areas for development. You will receive a comprehensive report describing how your EQ competencies work together for effectiveness. It also provides suggested strategies for bringing your EQ competencies into balance for greater effectiveness.
The EQ-i 2.0 assessment is an online self-rating assessment tool, with the option of adding a multi-rater EQ 360. You (and your evaluators) will respond to 133 statements related to emotional intelligence skills. takes approximately twenty minutes to complete.
The participant has a choice of 2 reports: The Workplace Report and the Leadership Report. The Workplace Report puts the emphasis on your workplace performance and the Leadership Report focuses on your leadership effectiveness, each in the context of emotional intelligence. Your comprehensive report provides you with your overall results and presents these using the five EQ composite areas: Self-Perception, Self-Expression, Interpersonal, Decision Making and Stress Management. The report also provides a detailed interpretation of how effectively you are using the 15 EQ competencies and how, by balancing these competencies, you can significantly improve your well-being, workplace and leadership performance, interpersonal relationships and communication.
There is a growing realization in organizations that there is a gap between the complexity of workplace challenges and the capacity of leaders to meet these demands. Organizations need new leadership competencies to meet this complexity gap. The Lectica Leadership Decision Making Assessment (LDMA) is focused on a set of skills for leading in VUCA conditions (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity).
LDMA Competency Model
It is an assessment that helps leaders learn to design and implement increasingly effective solutions when presented with complex, thorny problems, which means learning to:
- communicate clearly and effectively about complex matters
- identify problems and issues before they become intractable;
- identify and address both proximal and contextual causes;
- effectively identify, clarify, and leverage relevant perspectives to improve the quality of decisions;
- determine when and to what degree collaboration is appropriate in a particular decision making context;
- facilitate and participate effectively in collaborative decision-making;
- create an environment that fosters effective communication, collaboration, and decision making;
- quickly develop decision-making processes that are optimally adapted to particular situations;
- generate multiple plausible solutions; and
- make timely adjustments or corrections.
The LDMA is accompanied by rich diagnostics and personalized learning suggestions. Combined with coaching this assessment can begin to immediately support learning and growth in your organization.
PMC Coaching Assessments
PMC assessments focus on developing a manager’s ability to coach their direct reports. The PMC assessment can provide a snapshot of the overall coaching culture with the Wide-Angle Coaching Assessment (WA) and/or drill down into the specifics of a single manager/direct-report relationship with the Individual Coaching Assessment (IA). PMC helps you to identify and nurture your top talent through their High-Potential Leadership Assessment (HPA). It’s the only assessment in the market that provides a complete profile (‘bottom-up’ and ‘top-down’ perspectives) that predicts a manager’s leadership potential and consequently completes the succession planning cycle. It’s a perfect complement to other tools (personality, cognitive, etc.) and is currently being used worldwide.
Each option includes individual coaching based on a developmental plan. Programs can be scaled to your budget. A unique feature is the option of Rocky AI – an app that supports implementing your individual learning plan independently.
