Executives have the greatest impact in most, if not all organizations. Their interconnected network directly affects the success of the organization, as most business decisions go through them. As such, it is crucial for these leaders to receive all-round feedback on their leadership competencies and capabilities from all stakeholders. The result of such feedback will help them better understand their behavioral tendencies – maximizing existing strengths and mitigating development areas.
A study involving over 50,000 executives by Zenger and Folkman found that out of the top 10-percentile ranked in leadership effectiveness, 86% of them consistently requested more feedback. Conversely, only 10% asked for more feedback in the bottom 10-percentile. Research has consistently demonstrated that leadership effectiveness plays a crucial role in how well organizations are able to carry out their strategies [i]. In addition, leadership effectiveness is positively correlated with an employee’s job performance [ii] [iii]. Thus, feedback on leadership capability lays the foundation for success in every organization.
Our team here at MultiRater Surveys understands that not everyone wants a subscription-based survey platform. Although subscription-based platforms do offer an abundance of benefits, they are perhaps better suited for HR professionals or corporations looking for a large-scale feedback tool. For those who are wanting to dive straight into identifying their leadership capabilities, our newly developed cost-effective survey menu is exactly what you need to kickstart your development journey.
Compared to off-the-shelf 360 feedback surveys, our existing survey templates are backed up by scientific research and by our client’s experiences.
