4E's Self Assessment Results

This is a summary of results from the on line leadership assessment, based on the 4E's Framework.

People from every continent, of all ages and at all levels in organizations have completed the assessment. The data below are the "grand totals" for almost 3000 people completing the assessment.


assessment

1. The "Enabling" scores tend to be lowest, and the "Energizing" scores highest.
2. In the "Envisioning" area, a better understanding of our strategic choices and our numerical goals would help.
3. For "Enabling", we apparently tend to be a little short of tools, training, finances, the right people etc. And handling complexity is an issue
4. Under "Empowerment", the lowest score on this assessment (and in fact on others that Mick has done commerically) is on the the lack of agreed personal development plans. And look out for everyone in the organization having shared values.
5. For "Energizing", it is perhaps not surprising that we tend to see ourselves as optimistic, believers in diversity, and good communicators - but maybe our teams could help each other even more?

We have also run a simple correlation of "senior" and "junior" managers, self described from the on line demographic questions. You will note the statistically higher scores pretty much across the range for more senior managers, although the "shape" of the 4E's curve is almost identical. Perhaps not a surprise!
