LDI 360 Leadership Feedback Survey

Description

  • Survey taken by a leader’s supervisor, peers, direct reports and any other key relationships to give a greater awareness of the perceptions that leaders create about their leadership.
  • Based on LDI’s Total Leadership Framework™

How it helps

  • Creates a deeper sense of self-awareness.
  • Provides valuable feedback on the key elements of the Total Leadership Framework™ (both character and competence in leadership) and exposes a leader’s blind spots—not just weaknesses that need addressing but also strengths that need building.

The Highlands Natural Ability Battery

Description

  • Not a self-scoring instrument
  • Focuses on the cognitive functions of a leader—how they reason and solve problems.
  • Uses actual exercises to reveal how a leader takes in information, retains it, processes it, and solves problems.

How it helps

  • Creates a deeper sense of self-awareness.
  • Leaders often create tensions with the people they lead because they think differently; this provides critical information to help leaders see where they disconnect with the people they lead. Helps eliminate a frequent source of frustration on both sides.
  • Creates a clearer sense of where the cognitive and reasoning gaps are on a team.
  • Raises the appreciation for different thinking styles on a team.

The Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI)

Description

  • Self-scoring
  • Identifies a leader’s preferences in terms of how they draw energy, how they look at the world around them, how they make decisions, and what kind of work-environment best suits them.
  • Creates a profile based on four different styles.

How it helps

  • Creates a deeper sense of self-awareness.
  • Certain corporate cultures attract certain kinds of preferences and certain preference
    profiles; this allows an organization to see which one predominates and how to nurture the important minority styles.
