Innovation Leadership Assessment™ (ILA)
The Innovation Leadership Assessment was originally developed to understand an individual’s creative thinking ability and to identify leadership capabilities, strengths and areas for potential development. This assessment was scientifically-validated and has predictive value. Individuals are using the ILA today to increase self-awareness and determine which aspects of creative thinking and leadership that they want to develop to ensure that their creativity is translated into innovation.
Business owners, entrepreneurs and leading corporations are benefiting from having teams of executives participate in the Innovation Leadership Assessment process. The process begins with individual use of the ILA online tool, followed by individual executive coaching conversations, preparation of a group report and post assessment group coaching sessions.
All Global Partners in the ILA network are experienced executive coaches certified in administration of the Innovation Leadership Assessment.
