EMCC International research webinar: Characterising effective leadership - 12 December @ 18.30 cet 

About the webinar

Multi-rater leadership assessments are an invaluable tool for leadership coaching. In particular, they allow one to view a leader from the perspective of different observers. This feedback is often provided by several observer groups (e.g., bosses, peers, subordinates). We took a granular look at observer ratings and found several differences in the ratings made by observers from different groups even when rating the same individuals. This not surprising, as raters have different relationships and interactions with leaders. The dynamics of a manager-subordinate interaction will differ from those between peers, giving each rater a different perspective and a different set of experiences with the leader they are evaluating.  This webinar will explore the perceptions of leadership effectiveness by discussing leader ratings made by different observer groups. Importantly, the discussion will not be limited to differences in effectiveness ratings. We will also discuss the behaviors that characterise effective leaders from each observer group’s perspective.

Our discussion will center on insights obtained from a recent sample of over 50,000 European observers who rated a matched sample of leaders using MRG’s Leadership Effectiveness Analysis (LEA 360), a multi-rater leadership assessment measuring 22 leadership behaviors and 30 leadership competencies. The goal of this webinar is twofold. First, we will share our findings on the effectiveness ratings made by different observers and will take a close look at the behaviors that each observer group associates with leadership effectiveness. As our findings suggest, effectiveness is viewed differently by each observer group. Our second goal is to discuss coaching insights that arise from this research in the contemporary workplace. This webinar will equip you to better interpret multi-rater feedback in light of the different relationship dynamics found in European organisations.
