Leadership Agility for Greater Effectiveness
What It Is
The Leadership Agility® 360 is designed to assess the new mindsets and skillsets that executives need to make wise decisions and take effective action in today’s complex and rapidly changing global business environment.
It is based on groundbreaking research by leadership consultants Bill Joiner and Stephen Josephs detailed in Leadership Agility (Jossey-Bass, 2007). Their research demonstrates how leaders progress through a series of predictable, learnable agility levels that are rooted in well-documented stages of personal development.
How It Works
The Leadership Agility® 360 provides feedback on a manager’s agility in three contexts that are central to leadership effectiveness: leading organizational change, improving team performance, and engaging in pivotal conversations.
Participants select relevant feedback providers which may include managers, peers, direct reports, and/or other stakeholders. Leadership agility assessment reports are emailed to participants or sent to a certified coach for a debriefing. Reports indicate each participant’s current agility level and offer a personalized, descriptive road map of the next steps in his or her leadership development.
Benefits and Value
The Leadership Agility® 360 is well-suited for use with executives, senior managers, and high-potential managers, although it can also be used with middle managers.
Results are highly correlated with independent ratings of leadership performance and show no race, gender, or age-related bias. Certification is required for debriefing participants, and is provided by ChangeWise, co-creator of the Leadership Agility® 360 with Cambria.
