How do others perceive you as a leader? Do you command their respect? Their admiration? How effective are you as an executive? Are you a valuable asset to your organization? How quickly are you progressing up the executive ladder in your career? Are you achieving the utmost personal satisfaction you deserve from all your hard work in the executive suite?

This executive assessment tool will quickly provide you with the big picture in your business life. It will help you begin to identify your strong points, reveal your needed development areas and provide a focus for any coaching session. It will also serve as a launching point for understanding how the executive coaching process will unfold.

If you've hired me as your executive coach, please email this back to me before our first coaching session at: Bill@MentalGameCoach.com . You may also use this form for your own self-analysis, to begin working on your executive leadership skills.

Here is how you can complete the following 73-item Executive Leadership Assessment.

1. Review this list of executive topics and mark the number ONE in the space provided next to the items that seem MOST important and URGENT to you to be WORKED ON FIRST.

2. Mark the number TWO next to those that seem NEXT most important to work on.

3. Mark the number THREE next to those that seem to be in the THIRD TIER of importance.

4. Make NO MARK next to those which DON'T seem to be important now, or at all, or which DO NOT APPLY to you.

5. Place a QUESTION MARK next to those with which you are unfamiliar and would like clarification.

6. If there are any areas or concerns you would like to address NOT LISTED here, please write them in at the end of this form.

7. Please keep a copy for your own files. I have found that repeated review of this assessment is quite helpful in allowing you to continue to see new executive leadership vistas.

Here we go with the assessment.
