Back in May, Tom posted a self-assessment for leaders of orgs big and small. In keeping with his stance that a focus on people is more important than vision, energy, and integrity in a leader, he proposed statements on which to evaluate yourself addressing that aspect of leadership particularly. We put up a fast-draft PDF when Tom blogged this, but we’ve had time to polish it up a bit, and we’re posting the new version now.
Sample assessment statements:
• Listening is Item #1 in our set of Core Cultural Values.
• I believe in the Iron Law of Communication: Regardless of circumstances, if there is a miscommunication … it’s my fault
• 100% of our employees have specific development plans/programs carefully designed and precisely tailored for them and on which they … are rigorously evaluated.
If you’d like to test yourself on those standards and more like them, you can download the PDF (revised once more on 19 July) now.
