We use various tools to help in the implementation of your leadership development programme or initiative. You will find the main ones we use below:
Constructive online dialogue for performance & development
VIDIA is Strategic Leadership’s own web based tool that helps managers create and sustain a constructive dialogue on performance and development with their team members.
It not only provides an easy to follow framework for this dialogue, but both managers and employees benefit from a number of tips given in the tool. Through this process, employees can give and receive confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around them to help them grow.
VIDIA is completely customisable and delivers transparent reports.
FIVE DYSFUNCTIONS ASSESSMENTThe Five Dysfunctions Assessment, based on Patrick Lencioni's renowned book "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team," is a tool designed to diagnose and address common issues that hinder team effectiveness. It identifies five key dysfunctions: absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidance of accountability, and inattention to results. This assessment is best used for improving team dynamics, enhancing communication, and fostering a culture of collaboration within organisations. By pinpointing areas of dysfunction, teams can work to build trust, encourage healthy conflict, establish clear goals and commitments, ensure individual and collective accountability, and prioritise results. The Five Dysfunctions Assessment empowers teams to address underlying issues and transform themselves into high-performing units capable of achieving their goals and objectives. Do get in touch to work with us on improving your team dynamics.
Gallup research proves that people succeed when they focus on what they do best. When they identify their talents and develop them into strengths, people are more productive, perform better, and are more engaged.
Gallup's CliftonStrengths assessment is the first step in helping people identify their talents. CliftonStrengths results give people a way to discuss and develop their unique combination of skills, talents, and knowledge – also known as strengths. Our people are trained to help people navigate their strengths report both individually and as a team, to maximise the benefit strengths theory brings to the workplace.
HOGAN PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT
The Hogan Personality Assessment is a widely recognised and respected tool in the field of psychology and human resources. It was designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of an individual's personality, with a focus on their work-related behaviour. Unlike many other personality assessments, the Hogan Assessment delves deep into both the bright and dark sides of an individual's personality, shedding light on their strengths, weaknesses, and potential derailers.
The assessment's ability to predict an individual's performance and potential in the workplace makes it an invaluable resource for organisations aiming to make informed decisions about hiring, promoting, or developing their employees. By providing insights into an individual's personality traits and tendencies, the Hogan Personality Assessment enables organisations to foster a more effective and harmonious work environment while maximizing each individual's potential for success. Our team boasts seasoned experts trained to guide you through the journey of the Hogan Personality Assessment.
The Insights Discovery assessment is a powerful tool that provides individuals and organisations with deep insights into personality and behavior. Rooted in the psychology of Carl Jung, this assessment categorises individuals into four color-coded personality types: Fiery Red, Sunshine Yellow, Earth Green, and Cool Blue.
By identifying one's dominant and less dominant preferences among these types, the assessment helps individuals gain a profound understanding of their communication styles, motivations, strengths, and potential areas for growth. Insights Discovery enables individuals to enhance their self-awareness, adapt their communication strategies, and foster more effective relationships both in the workplace and in their personal lives. Ultimately, it serves as a catalyst for improved teamwork, productivity, and personal development, making it a valuable resource for individuals and organisations seeking to unlock their full potential. Our team are trained to guide you through the journey of the Insights Discovery assessment.
MULTIPLE BRAIN INTEGRATION TECHNIQUES (mBIT®)
mBIT, which stands for "Multiple Brain Integration Techniques," is a relatively new and holistic approach to personal development and decision-making that is based on the idea that humans have not one, but three "brains" - the head brain (cognitive), the heart brain (emotional), and the gut brain (intuitive).
mBraining, short for "multiple brain coaching," is a practice that applies the principles of mBIT to help individuals align and harmonise these three intelligences. By recognising the unique wisdom and functions of each brain, mBIT and mBraining aim to foster greater self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and intuitive decision-making. These techniques are best used for improving leadership skills, enhancing emotional resilience, reducing stress, and making more balanced and effective decisions. By integrating the intelligence of all three brains, individuals can lead more authentic and purposeful lives, both personally and professionally. A number of our coaches are trained in mBIT®
Strengthscope® focuses on measuring what energises an individual by identifying 24 distinct strengths categorised into Emotional, Relational, Thinking, and Execution domains. These strengths are scored on a standardised scale from 1 to 10 and compared to a relevant comparison group. The assessment helps individuals understand their energising strengths, guiding them to leverage these areas in their work while also highlighting non-strength areas or energy-drainers. Strengthscope® is recognised for its validity and reliability, holding registered test status with the British Psychological Society, making it one of the most credible strengths profiling tools available.
