Leadership Impact Survey™ Pinpoints Performance Management Competencies in Managers
SEATTLE – May 7, 2007 – Impact Achievement Group, a recognized training and performance management consulting company, announced its new Leadership Impact Survey. The proprietary multi-rater tool measures the five key competency areas exhibited by highly effective leaders.
While most multi-rater assessments focus on broad management competencies, the Leadership Impact Survey evaluates competencies that effective leaders exhibit in managing day-to-day employee performance. The instrument measures:
The Leadership Impact Survey differs from 360-degree instruments, in that it exclusively counts on feedback from those most influenced by their manager or supervisor – their direct reports.
"This is a breakthrough instrument, resulting from several years of development and testing," said Lee Klepinger, president. "Managers at every level will appreciate the specificity provided by this assessment. It focuses on the critical areas required to produce performance results in today’s workplace."
Klepinger added that HR and training executives can use the survey results to identify priorities for leadership development and training efforts. It allows them to pinpoint the high leverage areas where training or coaching will make the greatest impact, whether for individual managers, or managers across the organization.
Managers receive a comprehensive, personalized report summarizing anonymous input from their direct reports, broken down in detail by question and category. They also receive tutorial information for the areas identified for improvement, as well as an action plan format for personal development.
Reports can be created for individuals, groups, or entire organizations, providing significant value by identifying trends over time that assess the impact of interventions, as well as identifying new or changing development needs.
The Leadership Impact Survey is priced well below instruments commonly used for this type of work, yet provides more detail and in-depth information than most. The multi-rater assessment survey is available online or paper-based.
