Assessments & Tools
We selectively use a variety of assessments and tools
in our work. We are familiar with many of the
most widely used assessment instruments and can generally adapt to your
organization’s standards, if necessary. We have used: The Leadership Circle suite of products, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument, FIRO-B, Birkman, Hogan, Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), OPM 360, StrengthsFinder, EQi (Emotional Intelligence), and many others.
Over time, we have amassed a wealth of business and management knowledge. We have created and collected the most useful articles and tools and converted them into an electronic toolkit that can be tailored for each client's needs. Clients take our base toolkit (a .pdf portfolio) and add their own content, make notes, and reflect on their ongoing progress.
Rather than a dusty binder on a shelf, they have a personalized portable reference that can be accessed from multiple devices they are already using.
Whenever it makes sense for a particular client or situation, our preference
is to use The Leadership Circle as it provides an opportunity to leverage an
integrated framework to assess a team’s leadership culture and the
individual team members’ part in shaping that culture. The instruments
described below may be used separately or together.
The Leadership Circle Profile™ (TLCP)
The Leadership Circle Profile is a true breakthrough among 360
degree assessments. It is the first to connect a well-researched battery
of competencies with underlying motivations and habits of thought. It
reveals the relationship between patterns of action and the internal assumptions
that drive behavior.
Powerfully Insightful Read of Your Leadership Culture
The Leadership Culture Survey (TLCS) identifies the
gap between your current culture and your desired one. It also measures
how the leadership culture within your organization and/or team compares
to that of other organizations. It fits seamlessly with The Leadership
Circle Profile because it is built from the same framework as TCLP.
TLCS creates a very compelling rationale for change. It is very
affordable, internet based, user friendly, and the results are downloadable.
