Testimonials for Leadership Circle Profile
I’m just through the front-end of the process, namely a review of my 360 results, supplemented with a two follow-ups with my coach. I am thoroughly impressed. I know the true test will be in what happens over time but certainly the early trajectory points are very positive. As a visual learner I was quickly drawn to the circle format. It certainly helps convey the results in a more compelling way than a flat table. But as I delved more deeply into the model, the simplicity was deceptive. I soon found really valuable personal insights: truly some “a-ha!” moments. As my coach explained the underlying logic, even more fell into place. He was excellent, in both manner and knowledge and, after this first 60 minute tour around the circle, I felt as if I had received a tremendous gift. After my a second coaching session and more time with the reading materials, I was convinced: In my almost nine years at CBC/Radio-Canada, this is the most positive personal development experience I’ve had. My sincere thanks for introducing this program here, and for having me take part.

“We are so thankful for the work you are all doing on a daily basis. We continue to appreciate and experience how each day little shifts are made leaning into the creative space. Our leaders are growing into their authentic selves and your resources are making a huge impact. We wouldn’t be able to do the work we are doing without this tool and the thoughts/research behind it.
For a little over a year, we have internally been coaching and guiding leaders through their circle profile. It has become an important development tool. So important, in fact, we have leaders asking for it AND we have a waiting list!
Thanks so much! You have some fans in California!”

“The Leadership Circle Profile is an internally consistent, valid measure for leadership development. The psychometric properties of The Leadership Circle Profile are strong, suggesting that The Leadership Circle Profile is appropriate and strong for developmental feedback. Since this measure is only meant for developmental purposes and not for selection, termination, promotion, or other high stakes decisions, the results of this independent investigation suggest that The Leadership Circle Profile is quite acceptable for developmental purposes.”

“The Leadership Circle Profile is an extraordinary aid for accelerating the development of leaders. This 360 degree process is an integral part of both our Executive MBA programs and our non-degree leadership programs. There are two elements that distinguish the Leadership Circle Profile from its competitors. First, the instrument itself focuses on the critical developmental components associated with long-term effectiveness. Second, the team of feedback coaches is second to none – absolutely world-class.”
– Leo Burke, Associate Dean and Director of Executive Education, University of Notre Dame (Mendoza College of Business)
“In the course of my career, I have conducted nearly 1000 feedback-coaching sessions around a variety of survey instruments and I can tell you this: The Leadership Circle Profile is such a unique feedback tool that it has led to the best 1-on-1 coaching sessions I have EVER experienced! The reason, I believe, is that it goes beyond feedback merely on behaviors and competencies (which it does include) to the source: the core beliefs and assumptions out of which those behaviors live. In understanding the source, more conscious change is made possible.”
– David Womeldorff, Founder, Evolutionary Management, Former Consulting Director of Bank One Corporation’s Learning and Leadership Development Program and Acting Director of Executive Education
“When I found The Leadership Circle I knew I had discovered something wonderful. The Leadership Circle Profile is different from traditional competency-based approaches to assessment; it is a 360-degree assessment designed to accelerate your leadership and help you understand the relationship between how you habitually think and behave—and how all this impacts your current effectiveness as a leader. The survey revealed valuable data. It’s designed to tell you how you view your current level of leadership, and compares that reality to the level you desire. It helped my board, staff, and myself create a plan for growth and a new emphasis on leadership development. I participated in The Leadership Circle Profile five years ago, yet I still refer to my survey results today.”
– Katie Everett, Executive Director, The Lynch Foundation
“I am certified in several popular and well researched 360 degree instruments and have delivered results to numerous executives over the past 15+ years. The Leadership Circle Profile is by far the most effective tool in getting directly and immediately into the most transformational conversation with the client. Nothing else comes close!”
– Carol Murray, The Lifework Institute
“I have found The Leadership Circle’s instrument a rich and valuable complement to my work! That single picture prompts a world of reflection, and naturally leads to a well-chosen “improvement goal,” the first step in many a focused coaching approach, including mine.”
