This assessment focuses on the manager as “change driver”. The questionnaire identifies 7 key competencies in behavioral terms that are linked to leader success in implementing and managing change. Rather than another complicated flowchart of the change management process, this tool gives managers a simple diagnosis of the actions/practices they need to do more of-- in order to influence their work groups to be more readily adaptive.
Paper/Pencil Classroom Style Booklet Version
The assessment booklet is ideal for classroom use, and for one-one-one or group coaching and mentoring, and includes feedback on using the competency including advice to improve low scores. There is also a summary description of the behavior of a high scorer to provide a summary image of a manager that is highly effective in the specific competency.
