Research confirms that high levels of self-awareness are one of the key predictors of leadership effectiveness. Vicki profiles leaders using evidence based assessment tools for:
- Selection to ensure leaders fit the performance and cultural requirements of the organisation
- Personal development as a platform for reflection to enhance self-awareness and leadership effectiveness
TMS – TMS focuses on identifying and understanding key work elements that prove to be reliable and valid in explaining why some individuals, teams, and organisations perform, work effectively and achieve their objectives, while others fail. The Team Management Profile enhances understanding of an individual’s approach to work and the strengths that individual brings to a team (relating to others, using information, making decisions, organising themselves and others), and links these preferences to eight team member roles.
GLWS – The Global Leadership Wellbeing Survey is a holistic, evidence-based online profile, developed exclusively for leaders and their teams, delivering deep insights and actionable steps to shape and sustain success, through boosting workplace wellbeing, resilience and performance.
MLQ – Based on the Full Range Leadership ModelTM, the MLQ measures active and passive leadership styles: transformational, transactional, passive and laissez-faire (self-report and 360 degree feedback).
Genos – Genos emotional intelligence assessments, designed for middle to senior level managers, measure the emotionally intelligent workplace behaviours that underlie success. Genos assessments are supported by extensive peer-reviewed research and the reports provide leaders with practical development suggestions.
Resilience at Work– The R@W scale is a measure based on Working with Resilience’s Sustain 7 Model, that assesses the seven components of individual employee resilience.
HPI, HDS, MVPI –This Hogan suite of leadership profiles provide scientifically validated information about an individual’s strengths, performance risks, and core values. Used as a feedback tool for development, the easy-to-understand series gives leaders the self-awareness needed to perform effectively.

Leaders are often confronted with wicked problems – problems that are difficult to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements. Vicki works with executives and senior leaders on their leadership culture and approach to solving wicked problems: diagnosing, developing, and delivering organisational development interventions across the employee life cycle to maximise manager and employee engagement, performance, productivity, and well-being.
Wicked problems are resistant to resolution, and efforts to solve one aspect of a wicked problem may reveal or create other problems. Because wicked problems are difficult to recognise, leaders often focus on addressing symptoms, rather than root causes.
Vicki takes a planned and systematic approach to enabling sustained organisation performance through the application and transfer of behavioural science knowledge and practice into practical solutions that increase capability and performance at the individual, team and organisational level. As a trusted sounding board, she encourages executives and senior leaders to think differently when wrestling with wicked problems, to consider alternative perspectives, and embrace new ways of doing things.

One of the most difficult career dilemmas is working with a toxic boss or colleague. A recent study into the impact of toxic behaviour by managers found that even one or two of these behaviours, i.e. manipulating and intimidating others, was enough to cause harm to employees:
Pyschological: anxiety, depression, burnout, cynicism, helplessness, social isolation, feelings of self-doubt, feeling undervalued
Emotional: anger, disappointment, disgust, distress, fear, frustration, mistrust, resentment, humiliation
Physical: insomnia, hair loss, weight loss/gain, headaches, stomach upsets, viruses and colds
How can you preserve your career, your job, and your wellbeing in this situation?
