Defining Leadership Characteristics

It is common-place for organizations to define their values. This allows all stakeholders to understand what can be expected from the organization. It is far less common to find clearly defined leadership characteristics.

Our process uses research techniques over the last 25 years defining the 67 most significant characteristics of organizational leaders. We work with senior management to define the characteristics most critical to your organization.

Once identified and defined they become the basis for leadership performance evaluation, promotion and recruiting for key senior management positions. We also test the existing skills of management against these characteristics to determine gaps between existing skills and desired characteristics.

A 360 Degree survey instrument and evaluation can be developed to assist in performance management and succession planning.
