TUM Leadership Profile

Our leadership development approach combines theory, structured reflection, systematic feedback, and evidence-based leadership tools. At the very core is our TUM Leadership Profile – a powerful instrument for leaders aiming to become the best they can be.

The TUM Leadership Profile is a theory-based feedback instrument that provides leaders with a detailed report of their strengths and development opportunities. It compares and contrasts their own self-assessment of their leadership behaviors with evaluations by their followers. The TUM Leadership profile also includes a toolbox with concrete suggestions to advance leadership skills and encourages leaders to develop a personal action plan.

The TUM Leadership Profile has been used in Executive Education programs at TUM for a number of years, and participants value its theoretical soundness and practicality.

Why TUM Leadership Profile?

1. Theory
The TUM Leadership Profile is built on The Full Range of Leadership Model, which is one of the best-researched leadership frameworks. So you can be sure that your feedback is well-grounded in theory.

2. Reflection
Reflection is a catalyst for personal development and can increase leadership effectiveness. The TUM Leadership Profile facilitates structured reflection on your strengths and shortcomings.

3. Feedback
Feedback broadens your perspective and helps identify your strengths and opportunities for improvement. The TUM Leadership Profile provides systematic feedback, framed in a way that is proven to be effective.

4. Tools
Evidence-based tools to improve your leadership effectiveness are showcased in the TUM Leadership Profile with step-by-step instructions.

The TUM Leadership Profile is based on the Full Range of Leadership Model (Bass & Avolio, 1994; Bass, 1998), which is the most deeply researched framework to date. It covers the manifold facets of leadership, ranging from rather ineffective behaviors such as ‘micromanagement’ to more effective behaviors such as ‘showing appreciation’.

We utilize a situational judgement test developed by leadership expert and TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning founding director Prof. Dr. Claudia Peus to provide you with a precise leadership assessment based on an evaluation of alternative reactions to prototypical leadership challenges. Thereby, the TUM Leadership Profile gives you reliable, valid and situation-specific feedback as an effective starting point for your personal leadership development.
