The essential first step in any individual, team, organizational and inter-organizational development effort is good diagnosis of the situation. There is no substitute for data—tangible diagnostic data that leads to insight, direction, focused action, and measurable improvement.

Linkage's Perspective

on Assessments

comprehensive & multi-faceted use  |   Open & integrated platform

At Linkage, assessments are more than a set of psychometric tools and feedback instruments dispensed to benchmark and calibrate individuals or organizations. We believe in using a range of tools to support the leadership development work. Leaders would be provided with a set of diagnostics so that they can use to develop strategies and interventions to become better leaders and build more effective organizations.

Leveraging Linkage’s open and integrated platform, clients may choose from a comprehensive and multi-faceted range of leadership assessments, both proprietary as well as third-party tools. 

For the past 30 years, Linkage has developed a suite of proprietary tools to help organizations and individuals. These proprietary tools are research-based and proven with some of the best-in-class global organizations across multi-cultures, ethnicities, and geographies. These organizations have found the proprietary tools to be highly effective in giving leaders the feedback needed to grow and lead high-performance teams.

We have augmented the use of Linkage’s proprietary tools with a range of third-party assessment tools, such as Hogan personality assessments, Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Emotional Readiness Index (ERI), CliftonStrengths (formerly Clifton StrengthsFinder), and etc.


Proprietary assessments

Grounded in 30 years of proprietary research on the behaviours of the most impactful leaders, the Purposeful Leadership® Assessment is based on Linkage's Purposeful Leadership® Model. It is designed to measure an individual leader’s effectiveness and inclusiveness across the five core commitments that all leaders make to their stakeholders: Inspire, Engage, Innovate, Achieve, and Become. Each commitment is supported by specific practices and leadership skills. The self- and multi-rater 360-degree feedback assessment provides insight into a leader's overall and relative performance on each commitment, the practices that make up each commitment, and the related leadership skills.
