A unique and extraordinary aspect of the Compassionate Leadership Academy is that it is measurable. We will quantify the progress and the impact that this programme will have on your life and your leadership. In partnership with My People Group, and as an integral part of the CLA programme, we will apply best practice research and analytics to measure the human factors that contribute to high performance cultures, providing evidence of the performance impact achieved by the CLA programme. Access to this incredible knowledge allows you to track and measure the impact of the CLA.

So how does measurement work?

At specific touch points in the compassionate leadership programme - on registration and in Modules 9, 15, 20 & 25 with a final review in Module 26 - you will be asked to complete a short online survey looking at four aspects of performance, the results of which will be processed and shared with you almost instantly.

  1. Strength Firstly, we measure the strength of bonds between you and those you work with - the strength of your relationships. Working with people who are invested in you and who you want to go the extra mile for, increases your chances of success and raises performance all round; it is the basis of commitment.
  2. Values & Culture Secondly, we want to see how you really feel about the values and culture of your organisation. Do you share the values and behaviours of your peers and your community? Understanding where you, your peers and your organisation are aligned creates a collective brilliance, and understanding the differences can be actively fed into innovation - both positively impact the creation of a sustained high performance culture.
  3. Personality Then we look at you, your personality. A compassionate leader needs to start from a place of self knowledge. Our simple survey will help you to understand more about yourself, another piece in the jigsaw of you, and will help map your personality to those around you to see how that impacts your performance, in good and bad moments!
  4. Mood And finally we will use the My People tool to assess your mood throughout the course. How you are feeling on a regular basis. This dynamic mood assessment looks at a more frequent measure of how you feel and helps map your mood to your journey on the compassionate leadership programme and to your performance.

The benefits are many and varied, whether you are engaged in this programme as an individual or as part of an organisation. As you climb your own personal mountain, these tools will help you see just how far you have come and give you clear sight of where you have to go next.
