The ABLE measures leader performance in the nine core skills every leader must have to be effective. For that reason, many organizations begin leader development planning by measuring the current performance of all of their leaders, providing feedback to each one. Conducting performance measurements enables leaders, as well as organizations, to set effective, measurable goals for leadership development.
Once you have assessed the leaders in your organization, you can use the ABLE to help your leaders develop individual Leader Effectiveness Action Plans (Action Plans). Everything leaders need is in the ABLE report: numerical results, customized paragraphs explaining in detail what each graph means, computer-generated comments to help leaders drill down into each dimension, step-by-step instructions for boss, direct report and/or peer meetings, and an Action Plan format that focuses on strengths as well as weaknesses.
Because the ABLE provides both numerical and detailed narrative results, coaches have the information they need to coach leaders from supervisors to the executive suite effectively. The ABLE allows you to design your coaching program to help leaders use their strengths to achieve better results and to focus on specific weaknesses that could derail them. The ABLE can also be used in conjunction with other assessments, such as the EQ-i 2.0 (click here), to help leaders get a clearer view of themselves and develop a deeper understanding of their own motivations.
Organizations that thrive in a demanding economy do so because they have talented leaders who know how to motivate their employees to achieve excellent results. By using the ABLE, you can develop accurate measurements for leaders, lead employees, departments and the entire organization in the nine core leader skills. By analyzing trends across departments or the overall organization, you will be able to see where both the strengths and weaknesses are and develop customized training and coaching initiatives that elevate your organization’s leaders far above those who settle for generic, across-the-board programs.
The ABLE provides a benchmark that allows HR and OD specialists to design training and coaching programs that focus on the specific strengths and weaknesses of your leaders. Best of all, the ABLE is the first 360° assessment designed with a post-assessment (ABLE-P) that is specifically keyed to each question on the initial instrument---you can actually compare apples to apples! This enables you to evaluate the effectiveness of your development initiatives to establish meaningful Impact Data.
