We use the Growth Leadership Indicator (GLI™) to provide tangible metrics that create a vivid snapshot of a Leader’s ability to lead organizational growth and transformation.

The GLI™ is a proven tool to accurately assess a Leader’s Performance Effectiveness at driving organizational growth through innovation and effective transformation.

Total Score – a barometer of overall capability to lead growth and transformation.

The GLI™ comprises 3 Core Dimensions, each with their own building blocks, which serve as the DNA of Growth Leadership:

4 Principle Mindsets – world views that shape organizational thought and action.

6 Focus Areas – core knowledge areas required to lead growth and transformation.

10 Skillsets– specific pathways which underpin growth leadership capability.

The GLI™ was developed by Dr. Brett Richards, President of Connective Intelligence. Following years of extensive research, development, and testing, the GLI™ is a validated, online “next generation” diagnostic tool that measures a leader’s ability to drive real growth through:

  1. Adaptability – This reveals your ability to effectively change structures, processes and culture as required, to achieve your organization’s mission, vision & strategic business objectives.
  2. Innovation – This provides a holistic view of innovation encompassing your internal and external focused efforts to either enhance or create new value.

Mindset is a key dimension that supports Growth Leadership Capability within the GLI™. Your Mindset is not just about how you think, it draws on your values, beliefs, emotions and thinking preferences and influences how you engage with people, situations and tasks. The 4

Mindsets shape the leader’s perspective or how they frame situations and challenges, and how they activate their knowledge and skills.

How can the GLI™ help your Organization?

Through 4 Principal Mindsets, 6 Focus Areas, and 10 Skillsets, the GLI™ will help leaders learn how to:

  • Ensure decisions centre on creating and sustaining long-term value for the organization

Introduction of Rhodes’ TIP (Thinking-Intentions Profile)

The Thinking-Intentions Profile, known at Rhodes’ TIP, is a unique instrument that makes visible what is normally hidden – the inner drives which shape thought.  We call these inner drives “Thinking-Intentions”.  There are 21 of these essential activities of mind.

How does Rhodes’ TIP work?

Rhodes’ TIP is a well-crafted instrument leading to improved thinking performance.

It is a core tool in the Effective Intelligence toolkit of instruments which all, in different ways, expand and improve quality of thought.  It is always delivered by qualified practitioners, who give live debriefing, training and coaching.

Rhodes’ TIP is a user-friendly way to identify the individual patterns of mind which shape how people tackle problems.  It introduces the concept of thinking-intentions as the route to enhancement and enlargement of thought.

The extensive use of Rhodes’ TIP, over nearly two decades, has demonstrated its value as a tool for revealing the thinking styles of groups and individuals in many different cultures, including North America, Europe and Asia.

The special advantage of Rhodes’ TIP is that it can be used not only for personal coaching and team working, but also for whole organization development.
