What is MVP leadership assessment

An assessment of 'character' of leaders showing the real heart and passion beyond personality, leadership style and skills …

MVP focuses on three core dimensions of leadership that matter most in today's volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world:

  • Mental Agility is not about IQ but MQ. MQ is the flexibility of the mind to adapt to different situations, change and the ability to lead change. An Agile Mind takes care to be objective in processing and critically reflecting on information using rational, creative and intuitive dimensions of the brain.
  • Values are our inner guidance system for what is good, important and desirable. Values are stable long-lasting beliefs about what is important to us. They become standards by which we make our choices.
  • Passion is the energy and drive that comes from our heart to achieve goals in life and career. Passion is about vision for life, career and society.

Character ultimately determines the quality of our decisions, actions and motivation

MVP leadership shows in wisdom, humility and hungriness as core traits of people we want to lead our teams

⑤ Overall, the 5 lowest scored behaviors are:

Why MVP Assessment?

In our Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous world, we need leaders that

  • Have an agile Mind (with an ability to change and lead intuitively)
  • Are guided by great Values
  • Are Passionate about the difference they make

They are MVPs!

Why MVP Assessment

There is a 'Return on Character' for businesses:

MVP focuses on three core dimensions of leadership that matter most in today's volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world:

  • Humble, Hungry and Wise 'MVP leaders' outperform leaders that score lower on character in driving high and sustainable performance of their teams
  • Value driven leaders substantially reduce business 'risks' and strengthen and align team culture
  • Passionate (hungry) leaders are self-motivated and infectiously raise energy levels on the teams they lead
  • Wise leaders with an agile mind are better equipped to adopt to change, lead change and deal with volatile and complex business challenges

The MVP leadership assessment helps organizations:

  • Hire and promote the right leaders of 'character'
  • Diagnose how organizational culture is affected by 'character' of its leadership
  • Identify focus areas for responsible leadership development
  • Build an internal coaching framework based on behaviours associated with MVP leadership
  • Improve long term retention and performance by focusing on character rather than style
