How to Conduct a Meaningful Leadership Assessment
Lack of clarity about what leadership is, how it is related to personality, and how to measure leadership personality often prevents organizations from hiring and developing the best leaders. This session will focus on how to overcome this challenge.
Anyone who has worked for a bad boss knows that leadership matters and that a leader’s personality impacts his or her ability to be successful. Moreover, research shows that there are financial, organizational, and human consequences of failing to hire and develop effective leaders.
However, firms often overlook the need to define leadership clearly, translate that definition into what should be assessed for selection or development, and choose assessment methods that match the need. Companies often choose inexpensive or entertaining tools for leadership assessment with no clear focus on what should be measured, how to evaluate whether assessments measure it, and whether it produces the organizational returns they have targeted.
This webinar will provide a practical, theoretically-driven definition of leadership based on the purpose it serves. It will equip attendees to increase the return on their leadership selection and development assessment investments.
Attendees will learn:
- How to define leadership
- How to view and assess personality
- Understand what employees need from leaders
- Gain research-based insights on leadership effectiveness
- Definition and measurement model for assessing personality appropriately.
