Granek Assessment Tools
3-D Leadership Inventory
This 360 degree feedback assessment lifts the fog from leadership development by capturing behavioral patterns, key variations, and desired change. A leader is assessed along dimensions of Self Leadership, Interpersonal Leadership, and Organizational Leadership.
Positive Influence Inventory
Influence is the core of management. The Positive Influence Inventory clarifies the manager’s influence acumen and behavior across multiple contexts, from one-on-one rapport to inspirational communication to negotiation impact.
Leadership Brand Audit
The Leadership Brand Audit allows leaders to systematically assess their leadership brand across eight branches, ranging from intellectual capital to personal style. The second part of the inventory stimulates the respondent to distill the leader’s brand image through creative means such as metaphors or slogans.
Intrinsic Motivation Instrument
This inventory helps organizations tangibilize the vital but elusive zone of intrinsic motivation. It measures employee fulfillment and perceptions within four sources of intrinsic motivation: Impact, Meaning, Control, and Growth.
