Step 3
Leadership Development (Your Assessment)

Quality leadership assessment tools assists you in measuring your progress toward becoming a more effective leader.   

Great leadership is about more than just reaching a goal or objective. True success is realized when goals are achieved and you've done that by winning the hearts and minds of your team members. As a leader you must work hard to develop and nurture a work environment where people thrive on making daily progress toward major goals.

Short-term wins can be fleeting. True success is realized once a leader has, over time, cultivated a team that makes success a habit. The success habit is present when daily accomplishments are simply a way of doing business. 

Leaders should make every effort to celebrate the little wins to build and maintain team morale. Each daily win takes the team one step closer to achieving their larger goals.

Our leadership assessment tools provide templates that allow you to identify and measure your leadership competencies. You'll identify your strengths as well as areas for improvement. Quality leadership assessment tools also remind leaders about what's truly important so they remain focused on the bigger picture, not just what's right in front of them.

Success should not be defined simply by the achievement of a goal. For example, a financial goal misses the bigger picture of what success is all about. If you acheive a financial goal but it isn't tied in some way to making life better, or adding value to other people in some way, the achievement of the goal will feel empty. When your team achieves a goal, you want them to understand how achieving that goal contributes to a greater cause. 

"Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life's deepest joy: true fulfillment."

- Tony Robbins

In the end, success in life is determined by two things:

  1. The quality of your relationships.
  2. The quality of your contributions.

Certainly, no one on their deathbed is spending their last days wishing for more money or for more power.

When you look back on your own life, you want to be able to be surrounded by a group of people who you love, and who love you. In addition, you’ll want to know that throughout your life you made a positive difference. Therefore, relationships and contributions are truly what life is made of.

One of the greatest contributions you can make is to coach and mentor others to adopt higher standards and to achieve improved results. Great leaders understand that in order to be credible, they must consistently model-the-way for their employees.

Effective leaders encourage team members to cultivate strong connections with each other. Most importantly, great leaders hold all parties equally accountable for doing their part, sharing the load and making positive contributions to the team.

Use the following leadership assessment tools to evaluate your leadership development so that you can set a powerful example for your team and raise the level of leadership throughout your entire team. 

"Leaders conceive and articulate goals that lift people out of their petty preoccupations and unite them in pursuit of objectives worthy of their best efforts."

- John Gardner
