Replying to LO17392 --

I'd really enjoy hearing more about the consequences and emotions that occur
with this process--and how the rank and file view it also!

Kouzes and Posner use a leadership assessment tool which is designed to be
shared with one or more persons, from every part of the organization, who
has a relationship with the person being rated. This is summarized and
compared to a self-assessment. It is used entirely as a self-assessment
tool (at least in my experience), and not for organizational rankings.
For those who "care" what others think about their leadership style,
content and skill--this was quite an interesting process.
