Provo, UT (PRWEB) March 15, 2009
DecisionWise, an international leader in the development of 360 degree assessments, announces the release of the Leadership Intelligence 360 suite of surveys for Healthcare leaders. These multi-rater assessments are designed to measure the most important leadership competencies needed for leaders in Healthcare today.
DecisionWise CEO, Tracy Maylett, Ed.D., remarked: "Healthcare leaders face some unique challenges. They must possess strong clinical or technical expertise, while demonstrating effective leadership. While most Healthcare organizations are adept at understanding the clinical and professional side of an employee's performance, most don't have effective mechanisms in place to gauge leadership. As a result, many times the best "doers" or clinicians are promoted and expected to be good leaders without being provided the leadership tools they need to succeed. These instruments provide targeted and actionable feedback to help leaders gain the self-awareness needed to be successful."
The Leadership Intelligence 360 has been used for over 12 years as the foundation for leadership development for thousands of leaders across multiple industries throughout the world. These new Healthcare versions represent over five years of comprehensive research into those leadership competencies critical to the Healthcare professional. Although used for a number of years, these new assessments have been redesigned based on this research and experience.
The Leadership Intelligence 360 surveys for Healthcare assess such leadership competencies as Managing Change, Communication, Patient Care, Integrity and Trust, Professional Expertise, and Performance, among others. They also utilize a set of leadership derailers that identify detrimental behaviors that have the potential to derail a person from being an effective leader. Some of these derailers include: Micromanagement, Lack of Focus, Lack of Confidence, Arrogance, and Volatility.
Coupled with effective coaching, the Leadership Intelligence 360 has been proven to increase leadership performance and overall effectiveness. This new release includes 360 surveys for Direct Patient Care Leaders, Non-Direct Patient Care Leaders, Physician Leaders, Executive Leaders, and Healthcare Individual Contributors.
