The Leaders Experience
An overview of your leaders experience going through our program.
The onboarding is three simple steps:
Part 1: Evaluation
First, your leader completes a strengths assessment.
Next, your leader sends an Anonymous 360 survey to their team enquiring about their leadership strengths.
How does your team see your leader? What areas do they believe they’re strong in, and could improve in?
All of our evaluations are based on the Kirkpatrick’s Model for program evaluation and effectiveness. We use a non-comparative self evaluation balanced scale model for our survey and a ranking based scale model for the 360 feedback.
Part 2: Personalization
The data from their feedback is then used by LeaderBot to create a personalized set of actions they will take throughout the program with their team. These actions are designed to raise their level of influence with their team to make them more effective, valuable leaders.
Part 3: Their first challenge begins!
After the onboarding process your leader immediately begins taking action by completing their first challenge.
WHAT IS A CHALLENGE?
Leaders will develop through ten minute ‘challenges’, which are interactive videos that drive both action and reflection. The challenge is split into three parts:
1. ADVICE FROM AN EXPERT LEADER IN TECH
We source our advice through interviews on the Modern CTO podcast with the greatest technology leaders in the world, such as Microsoft, NASA, Symantec and more.
We’ve already spoken to over 200 of the greatest tech leaders in the world, so we have plenty of content. We make a short clip of their best advice for our challenge.
2. GET EXACT STEPS TO TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION FROM THE ADVICE
While books and other programs contains lots of great information, the LeaderBits difference is the ability to act on the information within a 10 minute window.
We give exact steps to your leader on how to take action on the advice, and our advice is cross-checked for effectiveness.
3. HAVE A BIT OF FUN
At the end of the challenge, leaders have a fun extra credit question. Example: “If you could have any 2 superpowers what would they be and why?” It keeps your leader engaged and is a motivating way for them to end their ten minute challenge.
THE REFLECT DB
A designated area for reflection: The Reflect DB
After each challenge your leader makes an entry into a reflection database, allowing them to record their experience with the action they’ve taken in the program. This allows you to see exactly what their experience and thought process was with the challenge, and track their progress.
By having access to this qualitative data, it gives you the ability to see inside their mind to know how they think as a leader. This is an incredibly powerful tool to have for mentoring and data to have when making a decision of who to promote further as a leader.
