Got leadership skills?

Leadership assessment resources

Carolyn Neblett, Senior HR Manager at Capital One, asks:
“Any thoughts for online assessments that would help with building stronger management skills?”

Susan’s response:
The Learning and Development Roundtable is a terrific resource for management skills training and development.

I’m also a big fan of the Lominger competencies (360 degree feedback). Lominger’s FYI book (For Your Improvement) is a strong and valuable resource with many examples and practical steps for improving management skills.

I highly recommend, which offers an online assessment as a complement to the classic “Now, Discover Your Strengths,” by Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton.

For more ideas and inspiration…

Harvard Business Publishing has a great post from Bill Taylor, called “Memo to a Young Leader: What Kind of Boss Are You?”




  1. I’m curious to hear your ideas about online assessments for management skills.

    Tell us…what else is out there?


  2. Thanks for the great resource information. Lao-tzu, Chinese philosopher writes, “He who knows others is clever, he who knows himself is enlightened.”

    I’ve participated with Ken Blanchard’s online assessments.

    I just finished a 2nd reading of a leadership book with a workbook/assessment format. Kevin Eikenberry’s book titled, Remarkable Leadership, assists readers in learning about themselves –and the behaviors of successful leadership. The book offers more — but i really enjoyed the assessments.

    All the best!


  3. The Booth Company also has a great online platform and some excellent validated 360 surveys.
    Their online platform is easy for administrators, participants, and raters.
