Addressing all levels of an organization, from the individual to the team to the organization as a whole, we offer a range of tools to enable organizations to navigate the complexities of leadership. Contact us to learn more about the xLEAD offerings which can help your organization meet its leadership development needs and goals.
The x360 is a psychometrically validated, fully online survey developed to provide feedback to global leaders. The "x" in x360 stands for the importance for leaders operating in a rapidly changing world to be externally active. Leaders need to reach out to understand a changing context, to learn from others, to create networks of collaboration and execution, and to create a vision that energizes multiple constituents. This external outreach complements the creation of strong, supportive bonds and clear plans within the team.
Our leadership model draws from "distributed leadership"--the idea that effective global leaders are not only great individual leaders, but also leaders who develop and support leaders at all levels. Collaborating with others, they create a culture of learning whereby all team members feel free to contribute.
The x360 includes 3 Building Blocks: Adaptability, the 4-CAPS+, and Effectiveness scores. Adaptability provides a composite quotient of the traits that enable you to shift and adapt to an exponentially changing world, the 4-CAPS+capture what you do as a leader, and Effectiveness measures the impact you have. These measures build on the work of Deborah Ancona, Wanda Orlikowski, Tom Malone, and Peter Senge at the MIT Sloan School of Management and Henrik Bresman at INSEAD, as well as many other scholars doing research on leadership effectiveness.
