Using Assessment Results to Set Goals

How do I select what leadership skills I want to develop at the start of my coaching engagement?

First, the end of your self-assessment automatically takes you through the process of selecting a goal related to the dimensions measured by that assessment.

Second, if your organization is using the 360 assessments as part of your coaching engagement, you will have an opportunity to select another goal from a different set of dimensions after your stakeholders complete that assessment.

You will receive a notification and instructions when you are able to do this. But if you miss it or need to come back to it later, you can review your 360 report and choose a goal at any time. Follow these steps:

  1. Tap the menu icon in the upper right hand corner of the LeaderAmp app screen

  2. Select “360 Assessment”

  3. Follow the on-screen instructions

How do I change which leadership skills I want to practice after I have started an engagement?

Once you select a goal based on an assessment, you are committed to practicing that leadership dimension and working towards that goal for the duration of your engagement. You cannot change mid-engagement.

The length of an engagement varies depending on what your organization and/or coach has set up, but they are typically 3 to 6 months to allow enough time for practice and develop.

How do I access my assessment reports?

 You can access your assessment reports any time:

  1. Tap the menu icon (3 horizontal bars) in the upper left-hand corner of the LeaderAmp app

  2. Select “Reports” from the menu

Note that your 360 stakeholder report will only be available once enough stakeholders have completed their ratings.

How do I set new goals?

 Once a reassessment is complete, you will have the opportunity to select the same leadership dimension and practice it more (and possibly at a higher level) or you can select a new dimension to practice.  But note that this is only if your organization is electing to extend your coaching engagement. Otherwise, your coaching engagement ends.

Using the App for Mobile Coaching

How do I check to see where I stand on the leaderboards?

 Tap the menu icon (3 horizontal bars) in the upper left-hand corner of the LeaderAmp app. Then tap “Leaderboards.”

How do I make a journal entry?

The default Timeline page in the LeaderAmp app lets you easily start entries. Just tap the “Make a journal entry…” field at the bottom of the screen.

Note that you can tap the ^ icon in this field at any time to expand or collapse the text entry field for easier use. 

If your phone allows speech-to-text dictation you can use it to complete journal entries or chat messages. Many find this more convenient than typing.

When you’re done with your entry, just tap the send icon and you’re done. Thought of more to say? Simply start a new entry at any time.

How will I know if I’ve improved on the dimensions I’ve been practicing?

When the program is complete you will repeat assessments (both self and 360) on the dimensions you have been practicing. You will then receive a new report showing changes in your scores.
