Measuring the individual performance of your managers is one of the most important functions of organizational development. It is also one of the most challenging. To help your managers grow and improve their leadership competency, you need to measure their performance with tools beyond just using budgets and production figures. To get this clearer picture, Profiles Checkpoint ™ identifies your managers' strengths and weaknesses from a variety of perspectives.

Boost Management Effectiveness
and Improve Bottom-Line Results

Profiles Checkpoint provides a variety of benefits for your entire organization to ensure they are all working toward the same objectives:

  • Identifies performance gaps by analyzing and reporting on the managers' leadership effectiveness as perceived by the manager and their boss, the manager and their peers, and the manager and their subordinates.
  • Increases training ROI by creating a straightforward developmental plan to improve performance by focusing on identified needs in necessary areas.
  • Promotes empowerment by letting staff members at all levels know their opinions matter.
  • Facilitates and improves communication by comparing traits that management and individual employees consider critical to success.
  • Increases productivity by focusing on specific areas of individual performance development by capturing outcome-oriented performance feedback in a constructive, non-emotional forum.
  • Improves communication by providing a non-emotional forum for eliciting perceptions about management competencies.

Measure Essential Management Skills and Leadership Competency
More Completely and Reliably with Profiles Checkpoint

The first step toward improvement is awareness. With typical self-assessment tools, you only receive feedback from single viewpoints. Profiles Checkpoint is a multisource assessment, providing a full-circle overview of an individual's abilities by gathering information from various perspectives: self, boss, direct reports and peers. (Anonymity is guaranteed for direct reports and peers.)

This multisource system is considered more fair, accurate and balanced than a single-supervisor evaluation or peer review alone. The increased reliability of multiple observations also tends to stimulate more commitment to personal growth.

Enhance Leadership and Managerial Performance


Profiles Checkpoint is a powerful development tool, designed to positively impact your managers' professional growth and career. As a result, your organization's overall success is enhanced and accelerated.

For managers, supervisors, and others in leadership positions, it can facilitate peak performance that generates improved productivity in the workplace. By leading their people more effectively they'll be building relationships that inspire higher performance from their direct reports. Profiles Checkpoint quantifies a participant's competencies, verifies the results from a variety of perspectives and identifies ways to enhance skills. For one individual or for every leader in your organization, Profiles Checkpoint is an ongoing process that can be used at key intervals to monitor the progress of professional growth.
