Free Online Assessments
Throughout your career you will need to develop your knowledge, awareness and experience.
Some of this will occur naturally, but it can be useful to undertake periodic assessments of you progress - and challeenges to come.
That's why we have created for you a series of effectiveness scorecards. Please take advantage of them - they are free to use.
Awareness is the first step toward improving your performance.
Complete this questionnaire to review factors such as your self awareness, assertiveness, communication, time management, problem solving, decision making and use of social media.
Use this scorecard to review your ability to evaluate and improve performance, set strategy, organise and delegate work, and create a diverse and collaborative culture. Assess your ability to monitor external environments and your understanding of factors affecting strengths and weaknesses.
Appointment to a board brings additional responsibilities. Use this scorecard to assess your personal effectiveness at board level, review your personal qualities, and your understanding of governance, finance and strategy. Directors should also commit to personal development.
Board performance should be reviewed annually, together with directors appraisals. This scorecard provides you with a first level of assessment to guide you in preparation. It considers clarity of roles and responsibilities, conduct of board meetings, chairmanship, strategy and monitoring.
Business plans are like CVs; they should be comprehensive and kept up to date. Use this assessment repeatedly to monitor the readiness of your business plan. It covers each chapter in your plan, with an additional section for when you are seeking to raise capital.
