The test will allow you to assess your own performance
against 16 key management/leader competencies - such as
customer focus, decision making, creativity and team working
- which are valued by employers and which are very important
for effective performance as a manager or team leader. There
is one test for managers in the public sector and a separate
test for all other managers. Depending on which version
chosen, your performance is benchmarked either against
15,000 or so managers in the database or against public
sector managers only.
In summary, this unique test will show you what to stop
doing (or do less of) and what to start doing (or do more
of) in order to become more effective in your current
role/activity. In effect, you are told what you need to do
to become a more effective manager and team leader and most
important of all, how to do it.
