This crowdsourced product is a dramatic improvement over the prior version, used by over 100K project managers to review their leadership skills and abilities.
"The interesting thing about this tool, isn't really the tool itself - although its top notch. It's the fact that it was developed by gantthead members in a completely transparent environment on the site -- and the end result is fantastic!" offered gantthead's CEO Dave Garrett, "I'm very proud of the fact that project leaders can come together like this, discuss details and go through review cycles in a very open way - resulting in a commercial quality product."
This assessment tool allows you to rate yourself on 30 key attributes to find out where you stand in six crucial leadership areas: collaboration, customer focus, leadership attributes/skills, team development, personal growth and team focus/support. Also included is a list of valuable resources for further professional development.
