What is Leadership Pro?
Leadership Pro is a reliable psychometric measure which assesses two important elements:
This is the result of a major study carried out by AQR in association with the ILM. It looked at over 50 leadership models and found that all had their origins in the same components - 6 scales which represented a different aspect of leadership style. The ILM72 can be used with almost every leadership model.
What does Leadership Pro measure?
All leaders adopt a preferred way of working. There is no right or wrong style. We know that style is situational. Usefully ILM72 profiles can be aggregated to form a picture of the leadership style of a group. ILM72 measures adopted style across six scales representing the six aspects of leadership style.
The Global Scales
Core leadership competencies
Further research showed that there were three core competencies which are crucial for leadership effectiveness. Leadership Pro was developed to assess these three qualities too.
Determination to deliver
This describes a single-minded determination to achieve. Most satisfaction– the individuals and the followers – is derived from this.
Engagement with individuals
This describes enhancing the capability, confidence and commitment of individuals to enable them to perform and to fulfil themselves.
Engagement with teams
The emphasis is on the cross-functional team working – a leader knows and supports how people work together across the organisation.
