Leadership Pathway Audit™


Your questions answered


What is the ‘Leadership’ Pathway Audit™?

The Pathway Audit is a focused “team member” questionnaire/audit that identifies their managers “authority” profile. This profile consists of 12 separate dimensions based on the nature of the manager’s perceived authority. These 12 headings consist of “the necessary conditions which are jointly sufficient” for leadership to emerge – an ‘explanation’ in science.

Why use it?

Three forms of authority emerge from the audit; Transactional, Expert and Reward and the resulting comprehensive report indicates how a manager can progress from merely managing into leadership. We have an ‘operational definition’ of leadership where team members ‘willingly and enthusiastically accept their managers authority’, an outcome nearly all managers desire. The audit means that the strength of leadership can be measured, and that leadership has a positive correlation with team performance/productivity.

How do I use it?

Team members answer an on-line audit which takes less than 20 minutes to complete. The results are analysed and a comprehensive report about the managers “authority profile” is produced. This report is sent to the person giving the feedback to the manager – a senior manager, someone from HR or a coach or trainer. This is not just another 180-degree questionnaire it is unique and leads to explanations and forecasts.

When do I use it?

The Leadership Pathway Audit™ is both a very powerful coaching tool and a tool that can be used in yearly appraisals/performance reviews. It can also be used for several managers who are attending or part of a leadership training programme. Because the audit is based on team members perception, which can be changed, it is not seen as criticism by the manager but how they can improve their relationship with team members.
