Benchmarks®

Benchmarks® Assessment

Benchmarks® is a comprehensive 360-degree assessment tool for experienced managers. It measures 16 skills and perspectives critical for success and five possible career derailers. Benchmarks offers an in-depth look at development by assessing skills developed from a multitude of leadership experiences, identifying what lessons may yet to be learned and helping the executive determine what specific work experiences need to be sought out in order to develop critical skills for success.

Through the Benchmarks process, participants:

  • Learn how others perceive their strengths and development needs
  • Learn how they compare with similar managers in other organizations
  • Focus on skills and perspectives critical to being effective and successful
  • Design a plan that links needs to specific developmental experiences

AvoLead can work with your organization to use Benchmarks to enhance your leadership development in the following ways:

  • In one-on-one executive coaching sessions
  • In a workshop for middle-level to upper-middle-level managers and executives
  • As a component of a larger-scale executive development program
