Managers rate the importance of leadership competencies for success now and in the future, and then rate the abilities of their peer group to perform them. By identifying any gaps between today’s skills and those required for future success, organizations will have the data they need to begin making strategic plans for developing leadership talent.

The Base Project features the standard Leadership Gap Indicator model, which includes 20 competencies and 5 derailment factors. Optionally, you can customize the model by choosing competencies from the Leadership Gap Indicator library of 50 research-grounded competencies.
