CALCULATE YOUR CARE QUOTIENT

What is your Care Quotient™? Are you Caretensive?
How much do you care to be the best leader you can be?

Employees can sense when their manager and leader cares about the right things in the right ways, and when he doesn’t. And, they are more likely to align themselves and genuinely follow your lead, as well as forgive some foibles and mistakes, if they sense that you care enough to do a great job for the business, communicate to them, and foster their development.

Use the Care Quotient Scorecard to obtain feedback about your leadership skills and areas for improvement. This can be given to employees and peers, as well as your managers, as part of a 360-review process. It can also be used in coaching and in providing leadership training to high-potential employees or with managers and leaders who are not performing at the required level.
