Leadership Systems uses a number of tools for various situations to come up with data to help guide or support consulting decisions. These tools provide a means of creating a “snapshot” of the organization or certain specific elements of the organization.
The CAT© (Culture Assessment Tool) (administered one-on-one with employees)
Scott Airitam’s Leadership Systems, LLC’s CAT is a self-reporting tool that breaks the organizational culture into understandable, measurable parts. Skilled Leadership Systems personnel come to your facility and interview your people on the basis of anonymity. Demographical information, however can be collected, allowing the organization to sort based upon such things as department, length of service, management, etc. Once the data is collected, it is analyzed and recommendations are provided to the organization. The report that is generated easily spells out the results. It also displays if there was any skewing of the data by individuals (without revealing the individuals).
This powerful tool gives organizations the power to purposefully and strategically affect the culture.
Scott Airitam’s Leadership Systems, LLC is proud to use the RightPath assessments (Path 4 and Path 6) to measure the “hardwiring” of people. The profiles provided by this product are ideal for professional development for the individual or the team. The feedback is easy to understand and apply for participants because it was created for business by business people. It is the ideal assessment from “hire to retire” because it is measuring hardwiring, which doesn’t change.
The RightPath 360-degree feedback tool for Leadership is the perfect companion piece to the profiles. This assessment allows for the outside input of those around the subject and provides feedback based upon both results and emotional intelligence characteristics and can be directly tied back to the Path 4 and Path 6 reports.
The CDP (Conflict Dynamics Profile) 360o (online or paper)
Conflict is a major cause of negative politics, poor morale, and pettiness in workplace situations. It nets lower productivity, little commitment, resentment, and minimized company pride. The Leadership Development Institute at Eckerd College has done substantial work in the field of conflict. Their research has yielded a terrific 360o feedback tool for individuals, teams, or whole organizations. Administered by Scott Airitam’s Leadership Systems, LLC, the profile is done online by all participants and results in a report customized for every individual and an organizational report. The information in the reports itemizes a person’s behaviors before, during, and after conflict and provides specific and detailed suggestions for each person to be more productive in conflict situations.
Dealing With People (paper)
The Dealing with People assessment measures behavioral cues and preferences. It is commonly used to identify how people tend to interact with others and some of the behavioral preferences that direct that style of interaction. Four normative behavioral characteristics quantify the behavioral styles of those taking this assessment. These styles are Drivers, Expressives, Amiables, and Analyticals. By gaining an understanding of these four types of interactions people display, it creates the opportunity for improved communication, teamwork, and Leadership.

If administered by Scott Airitam’s Leadership Systems, LLC organization-wide, it can help with items such as organizational development, retention, communication, hiring, and performance management, just to name a few. If administered to a team, it can assist in raising the level of loyalty, trust, communication, and team building. If administered to an individual, it can assist in providing improved career development, job satisfaction, problem solving, and commitment.
