As a certified user of Benchmarks, a 360 instrument developed by the Center for Creative Leadership, I find it an effective tool for helping leaders understand how they’re experienced and perceived along 16 competencies, rated by a range of stakeholders.

Another important section of the report describes five problems that can stall your career.

  1. Problems developing healthy interpersonal relationships.
  2. Difficulty selecting, building and leading a team.
  3. Difficulty learning from mistakes, adapting to change, handling pressure.
  4.  Failure to fulfill promises and meet business objectives.
  5. Lacking depth to manage outside of current function.

Are any of these career stallers a potential problem for you or a report?  If so, put a corrective developmental plan in place, right away.
