FocalPoints is a confidential, 49-question, online assessment that strategically evaluates the leadership team’s core functions, satisfaction, energy, effectiveness, strengths, and areas for further development. This mutual review process allows leaders to reflect on their perspectives and experiences in their roles.

Additionally, the FocalPoints report provides a ranked list of recommended actions that will improve the effectiveness of the leadership team.
