This analysis provides a normative comparison of results with other successful managers. Managers can identify personal areas that need strengthening and then instantly pursue effective strategies based on work experiences well as confront possible career-stalling problems.

The purpose of this research-based assessment is to measure leadership behaviors and competencies needed for senior leaders and managers.  Getting input from other people in the organization is vital for the candidate to understand themselves as others see them.  Self-report is much less dynamic than a scientific research-based 360 assessment which compares the candidate to very top-level leaders.

How it Works

Meet and Greet

We begin our journey with a kick off meeting to set goals, timeline and determine your needs and hopes for the 360.


We work to gather assessments from you and a selected group of individuals which can include members of the board, leaders, peers, and reports.

Applied Results

After all results are in, I will compile a detailed report. We will review the findings in detail and discuss how to use them in real-life actionable scenarios.


Over the next 6-12 coaching meetings we will use the data that we gathered along with the CCL Compass™, a digital tool, to put a roadmap in place to implement transformation.
