Assessments and Diagnostic Tools

Gap Analysis

gap analysis diagramWe determine what steps need to be taken in order to move from a business' current state to its desired, future state. Also called need-gap analysis, needs analysis, and needs assessment, gap analysis consists of (1) listing of characteristic factors (such as attributes, competencies, performance levels) of the present situation ("what is"), (2) listing factors needed to achieve future objectives ("what should be"), and then (3) highlighting the gaps that exist and need to be filled. Gap analysis forces a company to reflect on who it is and ask who they want to be in the future.

360 Assessments

Leadership

leadership MRI diagramGet an "MRI" of your leadership. We measure leadership competencies and the inner assumptions that drive behavior. In an instant, managers discover what they are doing, why they are doing it, and key opportunities for development. Ultimately, this assessment cultivates awareness and insights that enhance effectiveness in leadership and impacts performance.

Insight That Accelerates Effectiveness

360 profile diagramThe 360 Profile is designed to accelerate leadership effectiveness beyond traditional competency-based approaches. When it comes to developing leaders, training to competencies alone does not work very well. For more rapid and lasting results, it is crucial that organizations help leaders gain deeper insight into their behavior and what is driving it. This Assessment provides focused competency feedback while revealing the underlying assumptions that are causing a leader’s pattern of strengths and limitations. We understand the relationship between how they habitually think, how they behave, and, more importantly, how all this impacts their current level of leadership effectiveness. Once this awareness is established, leadership development can proceed. Without it, change rarely happens.

Enhance Business Performance

corporate health diagramEffective leadership outperforms ineffective leadership, which is why we think leadership is a primary competitive advantage and strategic priority. The effectiveness of the leadership system in an organization determines the organization’s performance, especially in volatile and uncertain business environments. Now there is an assessment that measures the health of your leadership system—the culture of leadership in your organization. The Leadership Culture Survey is the most comprehensive assessment available on the overall health and effectiveness of the leadership in your organization.

We provide a powerful “MRI” of your organization’s culture. Used for your entire organization, or just a leadership team, the assessment reveals valuable data, tells you how your people view their current culture, and compares that reality to the optimal culture they desire. The “gap” between the current culture and desired culture, instantly reveals key opportunities for leadership development.
