Learn about how we use our proprietary Leadership IMPACT Assessment to identify individual leadership gaps, teams leadership perception gaps and organization level gaps. When utilized as part of our Leadership Resources Management solution, it helps detect toxic leaders in an organization.
Toxic leaders survive in organizations because they’re good at managing up. Therefore, you need a tool that assesses them by their peers, supervisor and direct reports. Analytics helps organizations identify toxic leaders because, if done properly, they are completely anonymous and data-driven. This eliminates potential retaliation that can occur with other types of assessments.
Toxic leaders are difficult to find using typical 360-reviews because they are text-based which makes them not completely anonymous. This can lead to retaliation if the reviewer is completely truthful about the leader’s performance. That’s why we provide a quantitative tool to provide completely anonymous feedback to the leader in our LeadershipRMS 360 strategy.
