The KUDU Performance Initiative Program

Uniquely designed to assess and measurably impact the decision-making skills of participating managers.

Assessments

1. The Leadership Competence Indicator (LCI)

The comprehensive LCI report shows the individual’s unique blend of:

  • Personality preferences

  • Emotional reactions to situations that managers typically deal with

  • The prevailing mood of the individual and the team they lead

  • Transformational leadership behavior

  • Decision making competence

  • Customer care

 

The report also includes tools for:

  • Using personality traits to moderate emotional reactions

  • Understanding situational work contexts

  • Developing emotional awareness and decision making competence

2. The Affective Decision Making Profile (ADMP)

For those who wish to use their own personality and/or 360 measurements, the ADMP component of the LCI may be purchased separately. The ADMP uses proprietary video clips to measure:

  • Emotional reactions to situations that managers typically face

  • The prevailing mood of the individual and the team they lead

3. The Transformational Leadership 360

Our proprietary 360 assessment is included in the comprehensive LCI. It may be purchased as a standalone and is recommended for use as a follow-up to measure progress against goals set by the individual.

4. The Work Confidence Indicator (WCI)

The 7-question WCI is a quick survey that helps determine which employees would most likely benefit from LCI assessment and training.

Training

Appropriate Confidence

Training sessions build on the assessments with principles and tools that are designed to help individuals:

  • BECOME AWARE of what to improve from assessment feedback and development report

  • LEARN research-based theory and real-life methods at workshops and online

  • PRACTICE principles learned on the job, with a mentor, manager, and/or coach as support

  • SHOW AND TELL: Managers who are “best in class” tell how they did it and how they teach their team to lead

Individual modules cover the key roles of a leader and are customized to each organization’s context.

  • Problem Solver: Understanding context and navigating emotions and moods when making decisions in situations of uncertainty

  • Role Model: Behavior that transformational managers adopt to become reputable leaders

  • Team Builder: Hiring the right team members and supporting the behaviors team members need to adopt collectively to succeed

  • Structure Creator: Skills managers need to effectively organize tasks, people, and communication

  • Direction Setter: Leveraging the best of each team member’s skills to optimize the team’s performance

  • Customer Champion: Behaviors that managers of “best in class” customer care companies adopt and the values these organizations reinforce through their practices and policies
