Faculty Evaluation


  1. In a formally structured half-day session, the participants receive feedback on selected instruments, and suggested actions for improving performance from trained executive coaches. The instruments reviewed are:

    • OPM Leadership 360
    • Everything DiSC Management Profile
    • Emotional Intelligence Appraisal
    • Change Style Indicator
    • Change Navigator

    The evaluation criteria include ensuring the participant understands the scientific basis for each instrument, its history and its application back on the job.


  2. Participants receive feedback on their Individual Development Action Plans (IDPs) from the LAP-II faculty. The IDPs are a reflection of the integrative thinking of the participants reflecting on their understanding of the above activities and their personal needs for leadership development. The result is a document that indicates what skills and/or behaviors they choose to develop further, what attitude (motivation) will help them to do that, and what methods might they use to monitor their progress and hold themselves accountable.

Professional Development Plan

Participants develop a written Individual development plan (IDP), receive feedback on the IDP from other participants, and then enlist the support of at least one other participant to follow-up to assess progress within 90 days.


Self-Assessment


  1. At the conclusion of the LAP-II, participants complete an overall course assessment which includes questions in such areas as: knowledge gained; perceived value of learning; and the degree to which they expect to improve their job performance.
  2. Group members evaluate and discuss personal performance and learning during activities and learning group discussions.
