This data is from people who have taken the assessment before one of our onsite or online leadership training programs through January 31, 2022.
Here, we examine results from the self-reported Vice President participants, which comprise 11% of the total data population and compares their results to the population average.
In this analysis, we find the Vice Presidents mostly above or equal to the population average and only slightly below the average for the Reflecting and Coaching dimensions. This contrasts with the C-Level participants who were below the population average on all but three dimensions, Visioning, Reflecting and Coaching. While the C-Level participants may be on leadership autopilot at this point in their career, the Vice President participants are still aspirational and remain focused on getting to the next level.
The challenge for the VP population is if they are aspirational and trying to reach the C-Level, then they need to focus more on their Reflecting habits and Coaching relationships. Both will make them a better leader. Reflecting is that internal voice that helps the leader examine how they performed in their leadership encounters. Coaching is that external voice that provides feedback on how the leader performed and provides suggestions for future encounters.
