Whole + Intentional Leader Development
The WiLD TOOLKIT
Based on decades of research on the development journey of leaders and people just like you, the WiLD Toolkit is focused on developing you as a WHOLE person. Each of us knows that our learning and growth includes many interconnected parts – our competencies and skills, our character and personality, our calling and purpose, and even the way we invest in the development of other people around us.
The WiLD Toolkit is a set of 10 sequential developmental tools and personalized feedback reports that provide a comprehensive and intentional development plan that will help you get intentional about your next steps forward and increase your adaptive performance in real time. Unlike any other developmental process, the tools are based on four decades of research on the developmental journey of leaders. They are not a test to be passed or failed, but instead provide deep insight and guidance in helping you become a better version of yourself for your own sake, and more importantly, for the sake of others around you.
The site allows you to store feedback reports annually, set goals and document important moments that matter, and increase your Whole Leader Development Mastery Level step by step.
Unlike other leadership development tools and assessments that put you in a box or give you a label and leave you there, the WiLD TOOLKIT goes one step deeper and three steps wider by giving you a whole picture of your learning and growth each year.
Your network of support, purpose and calling, experience audit, and pressure profile give you deep insight into all aspects of your character, competence, and calling as a leader.
Each of the tools below targets a different aspect of your development as a Whole Person or Leader. The process is simple and personal. Your results are confidential and are only shared with others if you choose. That’s important because developing our capacity as leaders requires us to reflect on the real challenges and opportunities we are processing every day, but are oftentimes difficult to speak out loud. The tools are designed to be taken annually – your results will change, just like you.
- Complete a tool.
- Review your feedback report.
- Share your feedback report with a coach, manager, mentor, peer, or in a small group.
- Set goals and invite others to hold you accountable using our Goals Tool described below.
While the tools can be used in any order, below is the order we suggest for the most logical sequence in the Whole Leader development process.
