Assessing Your Values as a
Conscious Leader & Leadership Team
How does conscious leadership affect cultural transformation?
With greater self-mastery and awareness, leaders create conscious environments where employees are empowered to co-create and collaborate with others to develop solutions in the best interest of the whole organization, stakeholders and planet. The culture of a conscious business is a source of great strength and stability. Leaders operate with high integrity and transparency, and are flexible and passionate about learning how to improve.

Leadership & Culture
The culture of an organization is a reflection of the values and beliefs of the leaders. A 21st century leader should operate from an empowering paradigm, transforming whole systems, leveraging strengths to address root issues, aligning the intentions of individuals, teams and organization with the ones from stakeholders and Planet.
The link between the culture of an organization and the personality of the leader is most visible when organizations bring in a new CEO. The new leader automatically brings a new way of being that creates a new culture. This is why organizations with strong high-performing cultures promote from within. They want to minimize any disruption to the winning culture. Such organizations also make it a priority to embed their values, behaviors, vision and mission in every policy, system and process that guides the functioning of the organization.
Leadership Values Assessment (LVA)
Leaders only grow and develop when they get regular feedback. Do you know what others appreciate about you? Do you know what advice your boss, peers and subordinates can offer you to improve your leadership style? Do you know how you are contributing to the cultural entropy of the organization? Do you know your level of personal entropy? The answers to all these questions are provided by our flagship coaching tool, the Leadership Values Assessment.

Description of the LVA
The LVA is a powerful coaching tool for promoting self- awareness, personal transformation, and an understanding of the actions a leader needs to take to realize his or her full potential. The LVA compares a leader’s perception of his or her operating style with the perception of their superiors, peers and subordinates. Emphasis is placed on a leader’s strengths, areas for improvement, and opportunities for growth.
The LVA reveals the extent to which a leader’s behaviors help or hinder the performance of the organization, and to what extent fear influences decision-making. The LVA also measures the personal entropy and authenticity of a leader. Demographic categories, such as Boss, Peer, and Team member, may be added to an assessment in order to view responses by the relationship to the leader. These plots supplement the overall LVA report and plot, and are available at additional cost.
The LVA Process
The LVA process begins with the customization of the leadership values template. Leaders are then asked to go to a password-protected website to select ten values that most represent their operating style. They also list what they believe are their strengths, and the areas of improvement they are currently working on. 15-to-20 assessors, chosen by the leader, also go to the password-protected website to select ten values that represent the leader’s operating style; the behaviors they believe the leader needs to stop or improve; and any other comments they wish to give as feedback to the leader.
Assessors can choose whether to leave their name with feedback or take the survey anonymously. The values chosen by the leader and the assessors are mapped to the Seven Levels of Leadership Consciousness. The LVA feedback is given by a coach in a feedback session. The leader and the coach together develop a detailed action plan to improve the performance of the leader.
Group Leadership Values Assessment
When a group of leaders are having LVAs produced at the same time, you can also see a collective view of the leadership style of the leaders with a Group Leadership Values Plot.
Leadership Development Report (LDR)
Similar to the LVA, the LDR is a powerful coaching tool for promoting self-awareness, personal transformation, and an understanding of the actions a leader needs to take to realize his or her full potential. The LDR compares a leader’s perception of his or her operating style with the perception of their superiors, peers and subordinates. Assessors also get the opportunity to indicate how they believe the leader needs to change to help them become the best leader they can be. Emphasis is placed on a leader’s strengths, areas for improvement, and opportunities for growth.

Description of the LDR
The LDR shows leaders how their leadership style is perceived by their assessors and allows them to compare this to their own view of how they lead others. In addition, assessors will identify the 10 values/behaviors which they believe will help the leaders to develop.
In addition, the report identifies 26 areas, mapped to the, "Seven Levels of Leadership Consciousness Model", against which both leaders and their assessors have clarified to what extent they believe the area to be a strength, an area for development or, of no relevance to their current role.
This data helps leaders and their coaches put together an action plan to support them in their continuing development.
The LDR Process
The LDR process uses a standard leadership values template. Clients can choose to customize this template at additional cost. Leaders are then asked to go to a password-protected website to select ten values that most represent their operating style. They are then asked to rate themselves against a number of set leadership behaviors to state whether they believe these are strengths or areas for development. Fifteen to twenty assessors, chosen by the leader, also go to the password-protected website to select ten values that represent the leader's operating style; ten values they believe are important for the leader to help them become the best leader they can be; rate the leader against a number of leadership behaviors; and any other comments they wish to give as feedback to the leader. The values and behaviors chosen by the leader and the assessors are mapped to the, "Seven Levels of Leadership Consciousness".
The LDR should be analyzed by a coach to highlight key strengths and development areas and is debriefed in a two-to-three hour’s feedback session. The leader and the coach together develop a detailed action plan to improve the performance of the leader.
Differences with the LVA
There are three main differences between the LDR and the LVA. First, LDR asks the assessors to rate the leader against a prescribed set of 26 full spectrum ‘behaviors’ that our research has shown to be significant. The LVA on the other hand, allows assessors to write free form responses to questions about the leader’s strengths and areas for improvement. Second, the LDR delivers a fully automated report, whereas the LVA is hand written by one of the Barrett’s Values Center analysts. Third, the LDR uses a standard template of values, whereas LVA template is customized to reflect the cultural attributes of your organization.
