The Alpha Assessment is an awareness tool that enables clients to rate their “Alpha-ness” power and influence style and to learn to clearly recognize themselves in one of four distinct alpha types:
Contextualizing Coaching Conversations
Research shows that Alpha strengths are closely related to Alpha risks: our leadership coaches use the Alpha Assessment as their primary tool to provide individualized recommendations regarding the strengths and risks of each Alpha type. These recommendations create a context for insight and understanding, and provide Alphas with an expanded capability for self-reflection, which is often difficult for them.
Once we create the Alpha Profile, this profile becomes the base each SARGIA Partners coach uses to craft a transformational leadership coaching program tailored to each Alpha’s specific strengths and risks, his unique blend of Alpha characteristics. This program uses a proven arsenal of executive coaching tools and techniques helping Alphas reflect, redefine, adapt and accelerate toward real transformation.
The Alpha Assessment was developed by Kate Ludeman and Eddie Erlandson, industry-leading executive coaches who provide success coaching to some of today’s best leaders at some of the world’s most successful companies. The Alpha Assessment was the key tool they used in researching their best-selling book, The Alpha Male Syndrome published by Harvard Business school. To date more than 15,000 Alpha surveys have been completed worldwide.
