Through extensive research and application, FCG has identified critical leadership processes and practices that lead to high performance. This survey taps into organizational perceptions about the outcomes of specific key leadership processes and how effectively those processes are being executed. Findings are analyzed and reported in terms of the Four Promises of Leadership:

  • Providing meaning and direction
  • Engaging the organization
  • Ensuring focus and execution
  • Building the effectiveness of the leadership team

This assessment is simple and straightforward, yet comprehensive in scope. It provides a baseline for strategic prioritization as well as for evaluating progress over time. It maps the distinctions between strategic intent and operational realities.
