Leadership Development Survey
Bringing Leadership to the Bottom Line

Denison Leadership Development Survey. This survey was developed
by Dr. Daniel R. Denison and William S. Neale.

feedback on 12 leadership skills and practices that can impact bottom-line
performance. This 360 instrument is the result of over 15 years
of research on the relationship between leadership, organizational
culture, and organizational effectiveness.

The survey provides
a way to link leadership development and organizational culture
to tangible bottom-line performance measures such as:
- Market Share
- Sales Growth
The 96 items
in the survey measure specific aspects of a manager's leadership
skills and practices, and benchmarks them to other leaders. The
survey also compares a manager's self-perception with that of his/her
co-workers using confidential 360-degree feedback. Surveys are collectively
tabulated into the individual's data file, and results are graphically
presented in a Summary Report. The survey, Summary Report and Action-Planning
