It is the endless search for knowledge and honest and accurate feedback that separates enlightened leaders from the rest. Lightstone’s Enlightened Leaders has been developed as an organisational tool to provide leaders with continuous feedback – by their employees, colleagues and own superiors.

The reports provide a comprehensive view of your survey results with interactive graphs, commentary and high-level findings.

How does it work?

Phase 1
Phase 1

A group of people (eg, all employees of an organisation) receive the survey.

Recipients are not asked to rate a specific leader, instead they are presented with 41 key attributes (which are not equally important) and asked how important each of these attributes are to them.

The results help leaders identify what matters most to the ‘people’ they interact with, ie what attributes people value in a leader.

Phase 2
Phase 2

Each leader (manager/supervisor/MD/CEO) sends a survey to their direct reports, peers, direct superior and/or other superiors.

The survey consists of all the attributes from phase 1, but now the respondent is asked to rate the leader on each of these attributes.

The feedback that is provided in phase 1, assists in interpreting the results of the phase 2 survey. It enables leaders to prioritise their personal development and sets a guideline for leadership behaviour in the future.
