Middle Leadership Diagnostic – Rating Sheet

The middle leadership diagnostic is completed offline. The guidance for the diagnostic tool
provides a general description for each competency as well as more detailed information for
each of the four levels.
This simple tool enables the programme participant and raters to record the identified
strengths and areas for development across sixteen key leadership competencies. The
participant will then review the feedback received and discuss with a learning colleague.

What you need to do:
Participants need to decide to what extent each competency is a strength or area for
development and record the result and their evidence in the tables below. Participants need
to distribute this document and the guidance for the diagnostic tool to a selection of raters
and collate the completed copies. Once collated, the outcomes of the diagnostic should be
discussed with your learning colleague or mentor.
Raters who have been sent the diagnostic tool by a colleague need to decide to what extent
each competency is a strength or area for development for the identified colleague. Please
record the result and supporting evidence in the tables below and return to your colleague.

Each competency has four levels and you need to decide for each competency which level
you feel you, or the person you are rating are currently working at.
The default level for leaders who are solid performers is level 2 across all 16 competencies.
It is expected that participants will have a range of competencies at different levels.
Over all, levels can be summarised as follows:

Supporting evidence:
I have worked with Charles Clarke for 9 weeks now and feel that he is effective in many
areas of competencies. There were many areas that were moving towards Complex that I
am confident will be achieved as he progresses in the job.
Even in a short time he is proving to be a strong leader, who has the best interests of the
department, teachers and most importantly the pupils as a high priority.
He is extremely effective at getting the job done and communicates with his staff very well.
He has a clear focus of our department being ‘One Team’ and a clear vision of how he wants
to take the department forward.
