THE LEADERSHIP AUDIT
An assessment of how individual leaders and the leadership as a whole are currently aligned to the Care and Growth Criteria based on their subordinate’s perceptions of their leadership capability.
The deliverable from the Leadership Audit is a profile for each individual leader in the organisation. The profiles are compiled from subordinate feedback either through direct mail questionnaires or face-to-face interviews as appropriate.
The purpose of the profile is to indicate to the leader areas of strength opposite the Care and Growth criteria as well as focus points for improvement. An individual remedial plan based on the profile can support a process for coaching improvements in the leader's behaviour.
Individual profiles can be aggregated for departments, levels and the organisation as a whole. Schuitema has an extensive database of profiles allowing for individual and organisational comparisons to be made.
The Leadership Audit can be repeated on an annual basis to measure improvements in leadership behaviour over time.
