Why Choose MLQ?

Many claims are made about research in the leadership assessment and training industry, but none are supported by the level of research and experience that MLQ provides. MLQ represents a vast international research effort now spanning 20 years that has resulted in it being viewed as the benchmark in leadership assessment.

“Transformational leadership is associated with motivating associates to do more than they originally thought possible. The original expectation for performance is linked to an initial level of confidence or efficacy in the associates’ perceived ability and motivation. Thus associates’ perceptions of self-efficacy or confidence, as well as their developmental potential, are enhanced through the transformational leadership process.”

(Avolio and Bass, 2004)

It is often claimed that leaders are ‘born’ not ‘made’. It is true that personality may not be easily changed-if at all. But people’s repertoire and use of appropriate leadership behaviors over time can be changed to achieve optimal outcomes for others.

“Leadership Development: Leadership is coachable and trainable!”

We have chosen the Transformational Leadership Model based on the MLQ research as the tool to increase leadership effectiveness and organizational outcomes in the areas of innovation, coaching, and building a high performance culture.

Developing leaders and executives already on the job, and ensuring a consistent framework at individual, team, organizational systems and culture levels – is an essential aspect of on-going optimal organizational performance and high staff retention.

“The MLQ stands apart from other measures of leadership in its sound psychometric properties.”
