Assessments

Self-awareness is a fundamental leadership attribute. The more we know ourselves, our strengths, our growth areas and blind spots, the better we can learn, lead and grow. We offer assessments that provide insights into your strengths, motivations and your relationships with others.

CoreStrengths® is powered by the Strength Deployment Inventory 2.0 (SDI 2.0). This award-winning, scientifically validated assessment provides four views of you. It reveals why you do what you do, and how you relate to others. Using Relationship Intelligence (RQ), the SDI 2.0 provides a common language for understanding what’s important to the people around you, and how you can work together more effectively. It provides tools for choosing the right strengths to make the right decisions, even in high stakes situations.

This insightful and easy to recall and apply assessment comes with either a debrief session or a more expanded Results Through Relationships™ Workshop. We utilize the CoreStrengths® assessments for:

  1. Coaching clients as an embedded element of our coaching programs.
  2. Leadership teams who want to better understand and relate with their colleagues.
  3. Leaders who want to get to know their teams, and for their teams to get to know each other.

The LVI 360 is designed to increase the versatility of leaders– as well as organizations. It gets past the superficial question of what a leader does “good or bad.” Through a full 360-degree feedback process informed by a full circle of a leader’s stakeholders, it focuses on what specific adjustments they could make to be even more effective right now.

The LVI is built around a patented Too Little / Too Much rating scale. Using this scale, the leader, working with their coach, can quickly distinguish their strengths from their strengths overused — as well as those areas they need to strengthen further to be more effective. These insights empower leaders to create a development plan for expanding their versatility and elevating their impact.

After reviewing their LVI report, we work collaboratively with the leader to create an integrated development plan. The approach to leadership development behind the LVI has been road tested and refined in over 40 years of intensive, one-on-one, deep-dive practice helping thousands of leaders become more versatile.

Colin Macrae is a Certified LVI 360 Facilitator, and twice completed the LVI 360 process as part of his leadership development with Electronic Arts.

Engaged employees are those who work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organization forward.

Gallup has spent 35 years studying what matters most to employees and how engagement influences business outcomes. It created the gold-standard employee engagement survey, the Q12, used by Fortune 500 companies and small businesses alike.

Not only can we administer the Q12 survey for your teams, we can train your leaders facilitate coaching conversations with their teams around engagement scores.
