The key to being an effective leader lies in developing a strong leadership brand. We have created our 360° Leadership Branding Assessment Platform (in conjunction with our Leader Archetype Assessment) to help you begin doing just that! The results of this assessment provide both a foundation and a sense of direction for leadership development. Your unique leadership brand is a combination of the following: 1.) Your Personal Core Values, 2.) Your Character and Personality Traits, and 3.) Your Interpersonal Communication Skills. Throughout our signature process, you will receive critical insight into your personal leadership brand, utilizing both self and peer evaluations to gain valuable feedback.
Your personal leadership brand, also known as your actual leadership brand is comprised of how you think you are being perceived as a leader (i.e. self-assessment) and how you are actually being perceived as a leader by others (i.e. peer assessments).
Our signature process includes multiple follow-up touchpoints over the course of 6 to 12 months to increase the likelihood of moving beyond evaluation to measurable actions and achievable outcomes. During this time, you will complete the 360° Leadership Brand Assessment twice, giving you the opportunity to identify any areas of improvement or changes in the report. At the end of each assessment period, you will receive a personalized report, a leadership development plan, and professional recommendations from Dr. Veronica Cochran and the L.I.F.E. Concepts team. This report will compare your self and peer evaluations in the following areas: 1.) Character and Personality Traits, 2.) Strengths and Weaknesses, and 3.) Interpersonal Communication. Doing so will better enable you to identify the gaps (in any area) between your actual and desired leadership brands.
At L.I.F.E. Concepts, we believe that everyone has the capability to lead and can learn to lead effectively. It is our belief that by discovering and developing your unique leadership brand you can optimize your performance and exceed expectations. Make the investment and discover your leadership brand today!
This evaluation process serves as the perfect complement to our signature course, Wired to Lead.
Performance appraisals are required by many organizations. However, few provide a comprehensive and accurate view of both strengths and weaknesses. For leaders to perform at their highest potential, successful organizations consistently turn to feedback tools. The most reliable tool for collecting feedback is 360° feedback assessments, evaluating one's self-awareness based on confidential responses from peers, direct reports, and other stakeholders.
With only 30% of the U.S. workforce actively engaged in their work, ineffective managers can have a negative influence on individual motivational levels and team morale. In addition, these managers may cause problems beyond their sphere of influence. Leaders must learn to effectively do the following: provide vision, nurture skills and strengths, develop potential, inspire results, and motivate change.
Leaders play a significant role in both the satisfaction and engagement of their direct reports and others. Giving employees an opportunity to provide feedback on their leaders will likely increase their sense of value and satisfaction, not to mention the impact of their leader's improved performance. Turnover can cost up to 150% of an employee’s annual salary or 200-250% of a leader's annual salary.
Imagine the overwhelm for the new leader, as organizations seek to promote employees based solely on accomplishments and achievements rather than potential. Unfortunately, without proper development and training, this often hinders their leadership effectiveness.
Our 360° Leadership Brand Assessment measures a variety of leadership competencies that can include decision-making, assertiveness, communicating, adaptability, accountability, and self-awareness. This critical feedback process helps leaders:
To develop an awareness of how others perceive your actions, behaviors, character and personality traits, strengths and weaknesses, and interpersonal communication.
KEYS TO CHANGE
To utilize the assessment results, contextual examples, additional strengths, potential barriers, and personal recommendations to identify where development is needed.
To outline a measurable action plan that will better enable you to identify how to capitalize on your strengths, develop your weaknesses, and overcome your barriers.
RESPONSIBILITY & ACCOUNTABILITY
To encourage an increase in ownership and accountability, by establishing the importance of taking responsibility for one's development, as well as the value of feedback.

360° feedback provides leaders with a roadmap... guidelines on where or how to improve in a specific area. This better enables organizations to target specific training and development initiatives where they are needed most. While the assessment is a critical component of the 360° process, it is only one piece of the puzzle. Assistance in interpreting feedback, aligning goals, and creating individual development plans is equally important. To this end, we are committed to providing you with development tools and services throughout the 360° process to ensure that you have the correct tools on your journey towards development. Leaders who participate in developmental activities after receiving feedback are more likely to improve their performance than other leaders.
