The Leadership CircleThe world's most credible and meaningful 360 feedback tool
The Leadership Circle helps my coaching clients to see and understand the relationships between how they think, how they behave, and the impacts on their leadership effectiveness. While most 360° assessments only tell you what is or is not contributing to a leader’s effectiveness, the Leadership Circle also tell you why this is so. In other words, it provides coaching clients with causational insights into what is happening beneath the surface through a powerful visualization of the internal assumptions and beliefs that guides their behavior.
The Leadership Circle measures both competencies (Creative Competencies) and underlying assumptions (Reactive Tendencies). It integrates this information in a single graph to reveal a leader’s operating system and how it impacts his/her leadership effectiveness.
Creative competencies are well-researched competencies that contribute to a leader’s effectiveness. They measure how leaders achieve results, bring out the best in others, lead with vision, enhance their own development, act with integrity, and encourage and improve organizational systems.
Reactive tendencies emphasize caution over creating results, self-protection over productive engagement, and aggression over building alignment. These self-limiting styles overemphasize the focus on gaining the approval of others, protecting oneself, and getting results through high-control tactics.
As an executive coach who is also a certified administrator of The Leadership Circle, I love working with professionals and HR Managers to explore practical solutions based on this remarkable tool.
Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode InstrumentThe leader in conflict resolution assessment for more than forty years
The Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) helps people understand how different conflict-handling styles affect interpersonal and group dynamics. These insights enable clients to expand their awareness and options, and choose the appropriate style for any situation and get more effective results.
As a certified practitioner, I use the TKI with groups to help them discover whether they might be over-using (a high score) or under-using (a low score) one or more of the five conflict handling modes: competing, collaborating, compromising, avoiding and accommodating.
