Aspiring Leaders Profile 360°

Source: Leadership Development Centre

The Aspiring Leaders Profile 360° (ALP360°) assessment provides feedback for individuals who demonstrate leadership potential but are not yet in formal leadership roles and would benefit from targeted development.

The ALP360° is a short assessment based on six capabilities derived from the Leadership Success Profile (LSP) that indicate future leadership potential. We’ve included another capability, ‘team builder’ to provide an individual with feedback about their ability to draw people together and motivate them toward a common goal.

The ALP360° includes 19 statements. Respondents, including the participant’s manager, peers and others they work with, rate the frequency they see the individual showing different behaviours. The participant also completes a self-assessment.

Each participant receives a detailed and personalised report through a coach. The feedback provides an overview of the participant’s strengths and development needs, which can inform development conversations, planning and activities. We recommend that participants discuss the ALP360° feedback with their managers and how they will use it to support the participant’s ongoing development.
