LEGAL TEAM

We are committed to your privacy.

The security of our clients’ information is mission critical for us. To assist us in delivering the highest level of service, we work with one of the most prominent information security and privacy and intellectual property legal teams in the U.S. With their assistance, we do our utmost to protect the confidential information we receive from our clients and to make sure we are in compliance with the privacy laws of every jurisdiction in which we operate, especially the EU’s GDPR which sets among the highest standards we have seen in protecting individuals’ privacy.

OUR WORK

Our work at its core is to raise awareness and to deliver choice. Choice in real-time behavior. Choice in how you shape the results and inspire the people you lead. Choice in how your team engages around and delivers on its purpose. Choice in the year-end statement your company makes to the world.

Our expectation of you, having now arrived to our front door (this site), is that you are curious or ready to commit to doing your work – the work of self-reflection and development. Ultimately, leadership development is an inside job . . . and a journey towards personal mastery – the calm, state of being where in the face of stress and pressure, you remain connected to intention, choice, and productive behavior. This starts with self-assessment/awareness, and from there is cumulatively built by assessing in action and increasing skills to become a whole, integrated leader.

This is where tools come in.  From the beginning of time, people have turned to mindfully crafted tools to assist and facilitate results in the task at hand, whether it’s a mortar and pestle grinding wheat into flour. or a sophisticated software program assessing quarterly results of your company. 

We created scalable tools and curriculum materials to support the service work of change agents like you across the world. We care deeply about the beauty and form of our models, tools, and curriculum materials. We equally care that the aesthetic and professionalism of our products serve us and you as intended, as needed.

We also believe that the design of our leadership assessment tools requires imagination, artisanship, and relentless iterative experimentation – is it measuring what it’s supposed to be measuring?  Are we seeing actionable results? It is our work to keep these questions alive.

Having the right tools to shape the work you do can make or break your team, your company, your own leadership.

Find the right tools and programs for you and your company.

It starts with a conversation.

We serve every type and size of organization, from nonprofits to startups to Fortune 500 companies.  We accomplish this by providing an integrated suite of easy-to-understand leadership profiles that help leaders and their teams to understand how they and their colleagues function.

These profiles open up a conversation about how members of a team function in different team contexts and at home.

Instead of getting a fixed type or a opaque score, team members get actionable information they can absorb in a few minutes and language that they can use to talk with each other about how they communicate and behave.

In every team that we’ve ever worked with this opens up a conversation about how the team can work together more productively.  

We also offer workshops to create master practitioners who can deploy the tools and the curriculum effectively.

Our tools and programs can be implemented in any team or organization.

OUR COMPANY

“Assessing in Action” is a conscious company comprised of thought leaders, practitioners, and experts in the field of leadership development, theory, and assessment. 

We are veteran practitioners of leadership assessment and leadership development in the following key areas of expertise:

1. Team effectiveness training, facilitation, and intervention;
2. Transforming leader / change leadership practice and development;
3. Model building and change agent development;
4. Leadership consulting multi-level scalable assessment (individual, team, team network, and organizational health).

Our practice has demanded that we become curators and integrators of theories and frameworks from the domains of leadership development, team effectiveness, organizational health, and adult development.

Our curation and integration over many years has driven us to become designers and builders of scalable tools and curricula that accelerate the development of change agents and increase the impact of those change agents’ teams and organizations.

Years of designing and building has deepened us into craftspeople devoted to continuous improvement of the elegance and effectiveness of the tools and curricula we create.

Our mission is in service of a thriving and sustainable world is to craft the most powerful tools and curricula possible for practitioners working: (1) to accelerate the development of change leaders, (2) to enable the full engagement of teams, and (3) to optimize the health of organizations.    

Beyond the walls of our company, we are also an active global community of practitioners wielding a shared set of tools and curricula and engaged in an ongoing dialogue about its refinement.  

Our work is to create scalable tools and curriculum materials that support the service work of change agents across the world. We care deeply about the beauty and form of our models, tools, and curriculum materials. We believe that the aesthetic and professionalism of our products and services hold energy and matter.

We are thought leaders and model builders in the domains of leadership development, team effectiveness, organizational health, adult development, and culture change. We integrate, simplify, and test in the real world our models and tools and we continually learn and improve.

While we are also leadership and organizational effectiveness consultants, team facilitators, and executive coaches ourselves, our core work at Assessing In Action is building the tools and curriculum materials that support individual, team, and organizational alchemy.

LEADERSHIP MATTERS NOW MORE THAN EVER.
