Research Foundation of The LEADERSHIP ARCHITECT Suite

The integrating hub of the tools

and processes comprising the Suite is the LEADERSHIP ARCHITECT Competency Library.
The 67 positive and 19 negative

competencies (stallers and stoppers) represent information gleaned from multi-year studies conducted by the Center for Creative Leadership, AT&T, Sears and other longitudinal research.
These studies focused on how and why

some executives gain success while others derail their careers.

13

Their Conclusions?

There is a set of competencies or characteristics

that is crucial to success (see the 67), as well as a set that could send a career on a downward spiral (see the 19). These competencies can be refined, changed, or overcome through specific experiences.

14

Their Conclusions (continued)

Specific developmental experiences can lead to

specific competencies
This systematic coding has been designed into

the LEADERSHIP ARCHITECT Suiteand is offered to Human Resources practitioners and their internal customers
