Children's Healthcare of Atlanta has chosen Valtera Corporation to develop an online Leadership Assessment System for Children's frontline managers.
The Leadership Assessment System will be aligned with the Children's competency model and provide feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of participating managers as well as developmental suggestions to aid them in improving their proficiency in each of the competencies. In addition, the system provides follow-up evaluation to assess success in improving competencies. This assessment system will be a major component of Children's frontline manager leadership development program that guides and encourages manager growth and development.
