Author of ‘Ideas with Legs’
The i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment has been designed together with all-inclusive learning resources that provide an end-to-end experience for those looking for transformational leadership development and wellbeing program.
At its core, the assessment and learning resources took into account cutting-edge research in neuroscience and neuroplasticity: the brain’s ability to change and the relationship between brain and body. This led to the inclusion of concepts that are not included in other leadership models such as: inspiration, imagination, intuition and brain and body integration.
Every assessment measures different factors and should be used within the context they were developed for. If you are working with personality theory, for example, you would use a specific questionnaire different to the one that should be used if you want to assess thinking or behavioural styles.
The i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment does not compare to any other offerings in the market, however, it can certainly be used in conjunction with other programs and assessments whenever necessary.
The tool has been built to assess and promote the mindsets and attitudes that support meaningful organisational growth and development around the competencies that individuals need now and in the future of work: Performance, Collaboration, Innovation and Agility.
The i4 Neuroleader™ Model & Methodology was first conceptualised by Silvia Damiano, who founded the About my Brain™ Institute in 2009.
With a science background combined with 20 years of experience in leadership development, Silvia created the i4 Neuroleader™ Model after collating and analysing the most recent and cutting-edge neuroscience findings and health applied to leadership.
Other inputs that contributed to the development of the model and assessment, included interviews with experts, surveys and analysis of the traits of inspirational leaders conducted at a global scale across a variety of industries over a 4 year period.
The outcome of this research was the development of a 128-item questionnaire that assesses the abilities, traits, attitudes and behaviours that underpin the meta-competencies of Performance, Collaboration, Innovation and Agility. These 4 competencies are divided into 4 sub-scales called ‘pillars’ totalling 16 (see below). Out of the 128 items, each pillar is made up of 8 assessable items.
Once the i4 Neuroleader™ Model was tested and its impact studied, the process of developing the assessment commenced in 2012. The assessment was officially launched in 2013 after a period of prototyping, testing & statistical analysis. In 2014, Silvia Damiano published the book “Leadership is Upside Down: The i4 Neuroleader Revolution” which describes the research and the rationale of the i4 Neuroleader™ Model as well as the business case of why we need to look at leadership through a new lens to thrive in the 21st Century.
Yes! Take a look at our method below:
Reliability refers to the consistency of measurement. An assessment is said to be reliable when it produces a consistent, although not necessarily identical result.
Two measures of reliability were used in the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment:
To evaluate internal consistency, a Cronbach’s alpha was used to calculate the correlation values among the responses of the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment. The weakest items in each sub-scale were removed based on this analysis. The Cronbach’s alphas across the 16 sub-scales (pillars) ranged from .72 to .89. This is considered extremely consistent by international standards.
Validity refers to the accuracy of measurement; that is how well the assessment tool actually measures the underlying object of interest. The validity of the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment is based on multiple sources of evidence, including the content itself, the relationships between the variables and the response process. The research conducted by the About my Brain™ Institute team confirms that the assessment has high validity. In addition we periodically conduct statistical studies and our benchmarking norms are updated in our reports.
Using a 360° feedback assessment is a structured practice to obtain feedback from the people who know you well (i.e., managers, peers, customers, direct reports, suppliers and other stakeholders). You can invite up to 10 people to participate across 8 rater categories, including family and friends – a unique feature of the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment.
Our tool is the only assessment in the market that has a dedicated section for family and friends. It gathers the perspectives from all areas of a participant’s life, providing richer insights. The outcome is that the individual is able to fully explore the various facets of what makes up the “human behind the leader”.
The i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment is a competency-based tool that measures a set of abilities, traits, attitudes and behaviours which can easily be self-assessed as well as observed and rated by others. This assessment does not define who you are, your preferences, nor put you ‘in a box’. The 360° feedback process will give you a clear indication of your strengths and limitations perceived by you and others, as well as blind spots. You will be able to pinpoint the exact areas in your work and personal life that need change in order for you to lead more effectively and enhance your wellbeing. We provide practical strategies and guidance so you can take immediate action and learn how to develop the competencies and abilities of the i4 Neuroleader™ Model.
Yes, we do! Witnessing your evolution and growth has never been easier with our progress reporting. When you re-assess yourself, your progress results are plotted in an infographic in your new i4 Neuroleader™ Report. We recommend that a remeasure takes place after 12 months of reflection, learning and application of the strategies recommended in the i4 Neuroleader™ Course. As creatures of habit, our neural pathways have to rewire in order to make a change. What is measured gets done and what is reassessed gets reinforced. Our assessment pricing is structured as an annual subscription which includes 1 assessment per year and access to our learning resources.
No, you don't. You can simply purchase the i4 Neuroleader™ Assessment which comes with 1-year access to our learning resources. If you would like to do a remeasure, then you would need to purchase a new assessment in year 2. This will provide you with a progress report and another year of access to the resources.
