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.
