Self-awareness is a crucial element of being an effective leader. So, what ARE your key strengths? What are your blind spots? Would you like to identify your most promising and intriguing opportunities for growth? We work with several validated, research-based assessments in our executive coaching and leadership development programs. These are powerful leadership development tools for individuals and organizations because they increase the inner awareness that shapes outward behavior.
Assessments for individuals
The Leadership Circle Profile™
A breakthrough 360° profile that connects patterns of action with habits of thought
Used by organizations ranging from Google to NASA, the National Wildlife Federation, and beyond, the Leadership Circle Profile (TLCP) is a true breakthrough among 360-degree assessments. It’s the first to connect a well-researched battery of leadership competencies with the underlying motivations and habits of thought. It reveals the relationship between patterns of action and the internal assumptions that drive behavior.
TLCP goes to the source of behavior to get greater leverage on change. And unlike most profiles which take hours to interpret, the TLCP integrates all this information in a way that brings the key issues to the surface instantly. This tool makes a treasure trove of information easily accessible, which creates a foundation on which change can occur at a deeper level and a sustainable pace.
We use this tool in 1:1 coaching and in our group program Gauge Leadership Lab.

Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day? Chances are, you don’t. All too often, our natural talents go untapped. From the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths. StrengthsFinder shifts that focus, and give you a new understanding of your innate talents and what makes you stand out. Once you complete the online assessment, you’ll get a comprehensive guide based on your results, which provides a great foundation for creating your development plan. This guide includes:
- A report of your top five strengths and 50 ideas for action
- A strengths discovery activity that helps you think about how your talents, investment, experience, skills, and knowledge work together to build strengths
- A strengths-based action plan to create specific goals for building and applying your strengths
Assessments for teams
The Leadership Culture Survey™:
A powerfully insightful read of your organization’s leadership culture
The Leadership Culture Survey delivers a powerful “litmus” test of your leadership culture. It reveals how your people view their current leadership culture, and compared that reality to the optimal culture they envision. The gap between the current and optimal scenarios instantly reveals key opportunities for leadership development and a compelling rationale for change. The Leadership Culture Survey also measures how the leadership culture within your organization and/or team compares to that of other organizations.
A comprehensive summary of results is presented and interpreted with your team in a two-hour debrief meeting.
