Strategic Leadership Assessment

 

Overview

 

Building a Culture of Leadership

In the book, Empowering Leaders, David Ramey suggests that the fundamental role of leadership is to build an organization’s culture of commitment and contribution.  This requires creating lasting public value for the quality of our lives, the quality of our work, and the quality of society.  In our increasingly complex, specialized, and interdependent society,  leaders in all settings are compelled to become more aware of the essential connections between personal lives, organized work and public responsibilities within an organization’s culture.  As leaders, we need to build organizational  cultures which provide continuous and sustainable benefits to individual lives, work places, and society.

The Strategic Leadership Assessment

Based on over 23 years’ experience in consulting and writing.  Strategic Leadership Associates has constructed a Strategic Leadership Assessment that measures an individual’s profile and an organization’s culture on 24 leadership skills in three leadership dimensions:

  • Personal Leadership
  • Organizational Leadership
  • Public Leadership

Each of the questions in the Assessment is answered privately and confidentially by each respondent and is designed to create an awareness of both the continuity and discontinuity among individual, work group, and organizational leadership culture preferences.  The validity and reliability of question items, skill sets, and skill profiles have been statistically analyzed and meet or exceed a high level of acceptability in testing standards.

The Strategic Leadership Profile

A Strategic Leadership Profile is generated for each participant.  It illustrates in graph form the individual’s responses to the questions in the Assessment in relation to those of his/her work group and the entire organization.  Strategic Leadership Associates can also compare a participant’s responses to its national database of leaders and organizations.
