We’ve synthesized decades of empirical research and theorizing about leadership and created an assessment designed to help you know how well you’ve mastered the five fundamentals of leadership.
The RBL Leadership Code® is a research-based synthesis of the critical knowledge, skills, and attributes essential for effective leadership. The Code draws on interviews with renowned leadership theorists, researchers, and consultants who together have written over 60 books and thousands of articles, and have administered over two million leadership 360 assessments. This research found that all effective leaders share attributes reflected in five simple rules which we call the RBL Leadership Code.
