Accelerate Leadership Effectiveness

The Leadership Circle 360 Degree Feedback

The Leadership Circle 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.

The Leadership Circle Profile™ is the only 360 degree competency assessment that simultaneously provides focused competency feedback while revealing the underlying assumptions that are causing a leader’s pattern of strengths and limitations. The Profile helps leaders 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.

While most 360 degree assessments tell you only what is or is not contributing to a leader’s effectiveness, the Leadership Circle Profile™ also tells you why this is so. It gives the leader causal insight into what is happening beneath the surface. This powerful difference puts the Profile in a class of its own. It is the only 360 degree profile that measures both competency and underlying assumptions and it does so in two primary leadership domains:

•    Creative competencies measure how leaders achieve results, bring out the best in others, lead with vision, enhance their own development, act with integrity, and encourage and improve organizational systems.
•    Reactive tendencies emphasize caution over creating results, self-protection over productive engagement, and aggression over building alignment. These self-limiting styles overemphasize the focus on gaining the approval of others, protecting oneself, and getting results through high control tactics.
