Leadership Values Assessment (LVA)


Developing Leaders

Leaders only grow and develop when they get regular feedback. Do you know what others appreciate about you? Do you know what advice your boss, peers and subordinates can offer you to improve your leadership style? Do you know how you are contributing to the successes or problems within the organisation? Do you know your level of personal entropy?  The answers to all these questions are provided by our flagship coaching tool, the Leadership Values Assessment.

Organisational transformation begins with the personal transformation of the leaders. If the leaders don’t change, the culture won’t change.

Therefore, to grow and develop your culture, you need to grow and develop your leaders.

Description of the Leadership Values Assessment (LVA)

The LVA is a powerful coaching tool for promoting self- awareness, personal transformation, and an understanding of the actions a leader needs to take to realise his or her full potential. The LVA compares a leader’s perception of his or her operating style, with the perception of their superiors, peers and subordinates.  Emphasis is placed on a leader’s strengths, areas for improvement, and opportunities for growth.

The LVA reveals the extent to which a leader’s behaviours help or hinder the performance of the organisation, and to what extent fear influences decision-making. The LVA also measures the personal entropy and authenticity of a leader.

Demographic categories, such as Boss, Peer, and Team member, may be added to an assessment in order to view responses by relationship to the leader. These plots supplement the overall LVA report and plot and are available at additional cost.


The LVA Process

The LVA process begins with the customisation of the leadership values template. Leaders are then asked to go to a password-protected website to select ten values that most represent their operating style. They also list what they believe are their strengths, and areas of improvement they are currently working on. Fifteen to twenty assessors, chosen by the leader, also go to the password-protected website to select ten values that represent the leader’s operating style; the behaviours they believe the leader needs to stop or improve; and any other comments they wish to give as feedback to the leader. Assessors can choose whether to leave their name with feedback or take the survey anonymously. The values chosen by the leader and the assessors are mapped to the Seven Levels of Leadership Consciousness.

The LVA feedback is given by a coach in a two-to-three hour feedback session. The leader and the coach together develop a detailed action plan to improve the performance of the leader.
