Primary colours - Model of leadership

How does it work?

Primary Colours® Model of Leadership Assessment combines the measurement rigour of NEO personality assessment with the clarity and simplicity of the Primary Colours® Model of Leadership to provide a simple and robust prediction of leadership style and effectiveness.

Leaders take up to three online personality surveys (including NEO PI-R), each recognised as excellent in its field and mapped on to the Primary Colours® Model. The results are combined with feedback from the Primary Colours® 360 feedback survey to discover how self-assessment of current behaviour compares to the evaluation of peers, reports and senior colleagues.

A highly qualified assessor will then take the leader through an intensive interview to explore his or her current role, aspirations, interests and earlier life to build a comprehensive picture.

This information is used to write a personalised leadership report. Depending on the level of assessment required, this ranges from a bullet point summary report through to a comprehensive, but concise, description of the individual's leadership capability and the psychological factors that underpin it.

You can choose from three levels of leadership assessment, ranging from a forensic in-depth analysis recommended for members of your top team, through to a lighter process for line managers and emerging talent.

Primary Colours® Team Alignment is a two-day process that combines expertly facilitated discussions with insights from individual psychometric assessments. Findings are presented individually to each team member and in an aggregated form to the group.

The process explores:

  • Business aims and objectives for the next three to five years.
  • The current position.
  • What helps and what hinders current performance.
  • The actions that need to be taken in the next six months to create momentum and remove obstacles.
  • What are the implications for how the leadership team operates.
  • The implications of the aggregated psychometric assessments - where are collective leadership competence gaps?
  • You will get a candid insight into how your leadership team performs and how it is perceived. By the end of day two you'll have a clear action plan for the next stage in your organisation's growth.
