PRIZE Leadership Quotient
“Leadership is the art of making decisions in the dim light of incomplete information, and is measured with the brilliant illumination of hindsight.“~ Roger Fairhead
We tend to judge ourselves on our intentions and other people on their actions, and this is nowhere more true than in delivering and assessing leadership. Leadership can be defined as the art of making decisions in the dim light of incomplete information, however, leadership is often measured with the brilliant illumination of hindsight. As a result, the gap between the leader’s intentions and the subsequent assessment of their actions is magnified by the quality of information against which to measure the initial intentions and resulting actions.
If we want to be sure to be as well equipped as possible when the time comes for those dimly lit decisions to be made, then we need to make sure that our leadership skills are as developed as possible in preparation, and the PLQ provides a helpful benchmark against which we can assess our progress.
“If we can measure it, then we stand a chance of being able to deliver it.“~ Roger Fairhead
The PRIZE Leadership Quotient is designed to measure leadership capability against the six essential elements of PRIZE Winning Leadership, and can be used as a self measurement assessment or as the basis of a 360 assessment.
Each of the six sections has six self-assessment questions which are marked from Strongly Disagree (score 1) to Strongly Agree (score 7) to assess the chief constituents of each of these essential elements. The score for each section is then totalled giving each section a maximum score of 42, and then all sections are totalled to give a total PLQ score out of a maximum of 252. (Note: fans of the four-book trilogy, the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and white mice, may understand the significance of the section score.)
