The Collective Leadership AssessmentTM delivers a powerful “litmus” test of your collective leadership effectiveness. Used for your entire organization, or just a leadership team, the Collective Leadership Assessment reveals valuable data: It tells you how your people view their current leadership culture, and compares that reality to the optimal culture they desire. The “gap” between data on the current state and the desired outcome instantly reveals key opportunities for collective leadership development. Furthermore, the Collective Leadership Assessment measures how your collective leadership effectiveness compares to that of other organizations.

The Collective Leadership Assessment provides an affordable, web based, and user friendly insight into your culture as influenced by collective leadership. Results are downloadable for immediate access. The CLA provides you the ability to choose whether you want to assess organization collective leadership, business unit collective leadership or individual team collective leadership.

The Collective Leadership Assessment will :

  • Establish a compelling rationale for change.

  • Focus leadership development efforts.

  • Delineate cultural challenges associated with acquisitions, mergers, and restructuring plans.

  • Correlate leadership to productivity, profits, turnover, and other bottom line metrics.
