Development of competent leaders with strong executive skills grows in importance as the rate of change continues to accelerate in workplaces worldwide.

Please see our announcement below. Background information on the Task Cycle Surveys is at the end of the release.

Employers continue to seek competent, effective leaders as change accelerates in workplaces worldwide. The task of leadership in a fast-moving, technologically sophisticated, global economy has perhaps never been more complex. In response to this critical need, Performance Programs Inc. will offer three professional certification seminars on the validated, role-specific 360 feedback instruments provided by the Clark Wilson Group. The Clark Wilson Group broke new ground 30 years ago when it introduced the Survey of Management Practices. Today, the Task Cycle 360 Feedback Series is the oldest and best researched 360 feedback collection available. The seminars are scheduled on Thursday, March 9, May 11, and September 7 in Old Saybrook, CT.

The certification seminar is geared to help Human Resource practitioners and consultants administer, interpret and provide coaching to individuals based on results from the 13 titles in the series. Special emphasis is placed on the Survey of Leadership Practices and the Survey of Management Practices.

Participants will learn about the optimal uses of the instruments in leadership training and development. Each participant receives hands-on experience interpreting his or her own report, a seminar manual, samples, and a CD with all materials. Investment in the one-day seminar is $800, and includes testing for the participant.

Industrial/organizational psychologist Dr. Paul M. Connolly will present the material. Connolly is a coauthor of several Task Cycle Surveys and has used these surveys with hundreds of organizations. He is president of Performance Programs and has worked in the field of workplace assessment for more than twenty years.

Task Cycle® Theory forms the foundation for all Clark Wilson Group assessments. The Task Cycle is a logical sequence of steps essential to directing the performance of tasks. It is a scientifically validated model of successful management and leadership practices, with well-researched mathematical foundations. Developed by Dr. Clark L. Wilson, widely regarded as the father of scientific multi-rater assessment for the workplace, it is firmly based on established theories of learning, cognition, and motivation. Because the model validates what is most important in organizational roles, participants can prioritize their development plans with confidence.

  • Key requirements and best practices in 360 feedback
  • The Task Cycle Model, including overview of psychometric background.
