Pivotal Growth Diagnostics

Take the guesswork out of driving leadership performance 


Retention and accelerated talent development are increasingly important in today’s changing and demanding business climate. Legacy leadership development programs are failing to create desired results to address these needs. 

At Pivotal Growth, we see leadership as an essential driver of growth. That’s why we focus on helping companies take the guesswork out of understanding their leaders, teams and what to focus on, as well as what leadership development to invest in. 

Following hundreds of leadership development consulting hours, we developed Pivotal Diagnostics. This is a proprietary diagnostic tool to help leaders and companies accelerate insights and data around the soft skills of leadership effectiveness. Our suite of proprietary diagnostic tools target impact areas, such as creating high-performing teams, preserving team trust, and more effective communication. The people insights generated by our diagnostics focuses on increasing leadership capacity and, ultimately, performance results. 

Leveraging technology and data analytics, these diagnostic tools help companies get a more accurate view of the current state of their teams. Through quantitative and qualitative data, we delve into mindset, confidence, capabilities and competencies. We look broadly at four leadership drivers and 20+ performance dimensions. The output of a prioritized action plan is what shifts momentum from insights, to action and, ultimately, results.

Pivotal Diagnostics has been incredibly valuable to our leadership team for really knowing where we have expertise and where we need to lean in and shore up. The tool helped us understand the team’s overall leadership style, competencies, and soft spots. The self-awareness and awareness about our colleagues that was gained created the permission and the ability for us to move forward. Six-months later, growth and fixed mindset have become a foundation of the team. Knowing where we are helps to keep ourselves, our teams and each other on track. The use of white space became important to us and to our vision and strategy work!  This tool really helped each of us to understand how we show up as a team and how we do our best work.

You can't be a successful leader if you don't know how you show up. You also can't improve if you don't have a baseline.
