Leadership Assessment Tools & Profiles:
Assessment tools and leadership profiles help leaders and teams gain insight into one's natural leadership aptitudes. My favorite assessment tool is the Workplace Big Five Profile, which reveals an individual’s five super traits and 23 subtraits. The Workplace Big 5 Model has been shown to maximize engagement, boost performance, and help people optimize their energy. It is also the most scientifically valid personality assessment available.
I am also certified in the DISC assessment and use Positive Intelligence PQ and Saboteur assessment, the VIA Survey of Character Strengths, and Gallup Strengthsfinders assessment tools.
It can be difficult to gain an honest pulse into one’s behavior through only self-assessments. 360-degree feedback processes are designed to gather anonymous feedback from the people who work closest to the individual, in the spirit of learning and development.
In the 360-degree process I lead, I interview stakeholders, colleagues, direct reports, peers, and partners to get to the essence of how the leader I am coaching operates and is perceived in the workplace. This supports us in gaining a full picture of their strengths, development needs, and blind spots. I use this feedback to generate a summary report, which we use in our coaching to design a development plan. This supports us to reach their individual and organizational goals more effectively, and can lead to a higher level of performance and positive impact.
