The power-packed field of Assessments has never been so prevalent as we try to understand leadership and its effects on the world. Leadership in crisis and leadership under scrutiny are two phases representing our times.
There are over 250 instruments to help leaders perform stronger and as authentic leaders with the end result of strengthening their organization’s bottom line, increasing employee enhancement and creating a corporate culture of a positive tribe. Some are simple self-assessments requiring only 90 seconds to take, and some are more complex requiring more time to complete and analysis, however all validate instruments can be beneficial providing five things have taken place:
- The interpreter has been properly trained including having the ability to eliminate self-bias
- The instrument has statistical data to prove validity.
- The receiver is open to accepting the results as well as has a wiliness to positively act on the results
- A support team is in place to help effect change
- Goals have been pre-established
This article presents interviews for five instruments with a twist.. all three are developed or owned by women! Thus given support to women being recognized for the work they are doing in the field.
I asked these accomplished women, Tricia Nadoff, CEO of Management Research Group (MRG); Sharon Birkman, CEO Birkman International; Barbara Singer CEO of ExecutiveCore; Shreya Sarkar-Barney, Ph.D., CEO of Human Capital Growth, and Cheri Tree, CEO of BANKCODE, the same questions. As expected, each had different and exciting responses; thus, proving there are many approaches to the goal of recognizing and supporting different styles, personalities, temperaments, and goals.Download Article 1K Club
