Based on the acclaimed book, Remarkable Leadership: Unleashing Your Leadership Potential One Skill at a Time, this assessment sets out to challenge participants to be more intentional about what, when, and how they learn.
Remarkable Leadership is a practical handbook written for anyone who wants to hone the skills needed to become a remarkable leader. This book outlines a framework and a mechanism for both learning new things and applying current knowledge in a thoughtful and practical way. It provides a guide through the most important leadership competencies, offers a proven method for learning leadership skills, and shows approaches for applying these skills in today’s multitasking and overloaded world of work. The book explores real-world concerns such as focus, limited time, incremental improvement, and how we learn.
Remarkable Leadership outlines a practical plan for focusing on one of 12 competencies at a time. The core competencies define a remarkable leader as someone who champions and welcomes change, communicates well, develops and inspires others, builds relationships, focuses on customers and their needs, influences others with impact, thinks with innovation, values team collaboration, makes the right decisions, takes responsibility for themselves and others, manages projects, and sets proper goals.
