Frequently Asked Questions About Leadership Assessments

Leadership assessment tools for development are used to provide comprehensive feedback on job performance from multiple perspectives. This may include the leader’s direct reports, peers, bosses, and superiors, as well as the leader’s own self-perceptions. These critical tools are used in a wide array of leadership development initiatives because they help leaders identify strengths and development needs and improve self-awareness.

Leadership assessments are an important tool for leadership evaluation and development. Depending on your company, large-scale, 360 feedback at an organizational level could be the catalyst you need to align leaders, create a sense of urgency for new business strategy, and ensure quick execution. It could also serve as the starting point for a successful coaching program focused on change. Learn about the 5 steps you can take to successfully roll out this powerful tool for leadership development. 

At the Center for Creative Leadership, we pioneered the concept of using assessment for development, using feedback data from 360 leadership assessments as the key first step to personal and professional growth. Confidential, candid assessments from raters enable individual leaders to gain a comprehensive view of themselves and a greater understanding of their strengths and weaknesses. The open and extensive feedback provides greater self-awareness of a leader’s current state, and a basis for future development goals and self-improvement.
