"In 2011, after an international competition, we were awarded the contract to provide leadership development to the top 800 leaders of a large municipality. In our response to the RFP we presented what we saw as the leading edge of our field: a developmentally-informed curriculum designed to increase participants’ ability to deal effectively with increasing levels of complexity, ambiguity, and rapid change. We incorporated the Lectical assessments of DTS because we saw them as the gold standard of developmental assessment.

We are now about half way through the contract. We are using the Lectical Assessments in many ways. (1) We use the LDMA (leadership decision making) as a pre-post measure. Participants also take the LDMA Journal twice during the nine months, four other Lectical assessments are taken once—the LSUA (self understanding), LLRA (leadership reasoning), LRJA (reflective judgment/critical thinking), and LERA (ethical reasoning). All of these assessments provide diagnostic information about the learning needs of individual participants, group-level data that help us to tailor our curriculum to the needs of each group of participants, and informaiton about the extent to which participants are integrating different aspects of the curriculum.

We are very pleased that we selected DTS as our partner for this Leadership Effectiveness Initiative. In addition to the quality of their assessments, we have been impressed by their continual upgrading of the “dashboard$rdquo; that lets us look at data from different perspectives, and, perhaps more importantly, with the care, integrity and professionalism they exhibit in all of our interactions. We’d be happy to speak to anyone considering partnering with DTS and using the Lectical assessments."
