The purpose of the survey is to provide a broad view of the leadership skills of supervisory and management staff, for example: managers, superintendents, supervisors, team leaders, foremen or equivalent, who have authority over others in an organisation.
We accept that managers/leaders need to evaluate the performance of their subordinates in terms of task achievement, however we believe that, in terms of leadership people skills’ skills, the best feedback comes from the people being led. The questions asked in the survey therefore address the leadership issues that The Leadership Academy’s research and extensive practical experience, has indicated are of primary concern to subordinates at all levels and in virtually all types of organisations.
The results will provide a benchmark that will help trainers/facilitators focus on issues relevant to the particular organisation. Good results can be highlighted for reinforcement and wider application, while poor results can be identified as priorities for analysis, discussion and change implementation. Improvements in performance can be assessed against the original benchmark.
