Development Dimensions International Launches Breakthrough Virtual Assessment: Leader3 Ready® for Leaders at the Critical Mid-Level

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - October 07, 2014) - Development Dimensions International (DDI), the global talent management consultancy, today announced at the 17th Annual HR Technology Conference and Exposition that it will release its latest innovation, Leader3 Ready®, a dynamic virtual leadership assessment, designed for mid-level leaders to emerging executives, this fall.

Leader3 Ready® is fueled by four decades of DDI research, experience and expertise in leadership assessment -- DDI pioneered the use of assessment and Acceleration Centers® as business tools. Leader3 Ready offers a compelling participant experience, highlighted by a fast-paced, real-world simulation that challenges leaders to step up to the kind of business challenges, decisions and interactions faced by mid-level leaders. Complemented by personalized diagnostics, Leader3 Ready captures leaders' interest, holds their attention and instills a strong sense of urgency.

Leader3 Ready offers a holistic look at leadership capabilities, synthesizing evaluation of leader behaviors, motivations, experiences and personality data into a unique 4-D view delivered in an online, interactive report. The report gives the organization an integrated view of the assessed leader and allows leaders to explore their results and receive tailored feedback. Together, the interactive report and feedback catalyze personal development, allowing middle managers to apply new insights to future career scenarios and put themselves on an accelerated development path.

"Leader3 Ready meets an important market need, driving better leadership decisions and accelerating the development of these mid-level leaders and early executives who are so pivotal to organizational success," said Audrey Smith, Ph.D., senior vice president, Talent Diagnostics, DDI. "It will help organizations answer the tough question -- are these leaders ready to execute our strategy -- and does so in a scalable way that reflects the realities of these challenging jobs."

"Leader3 Ready offers a new generation of assessment because of its ability to deliver strategic insight and create a clear, compelling path for development in a virtual format," stated Ryan Heinl, Leader3 Ready product manager, DDI. "Leader3 Ready takes the guesswork out of identifying and accelerating these critical leaders."
