Vital Signs, Six Seconds’ organizational model and integrated suite of assessment tools, offers insight into the key drivers and performance outcomes that determine long-term business effectiveness and success. The Vital Signs model is grounded in real business experience and uses language familiar to those who work in and lead organizations.

As a certified consultant, I utilize the Vital Signs model and toolkit in a wide variety of organizational settings, from small, not-for-profits to large, multi-national corporations.

The assessment tools provide actionable data at the leadership, team, and organization-wide levels and are well-validated and internationally normed.

Leadership Vital Signs (LVS)

LVS is a multi-rater assessment providing focused feedback about your leadership and comparisons between your and others’ perceptions. In this context, “leadership” is defined by the five components of the VS Model, Motivation, Change, Execution, Teamwork, and Trust. These climate drivers are complemented by the leadership-specific outcomes of Influence, Efficacy, Design, and Direction. There is also a Self-Only version.

Team Vital Signs (TVS)

TVS is a survey of team members evaluating the team experience. It measures the drivers of team effectiveness, offering insight into the workplace climate and team dynamics. Sharing the same key Vital Signs drivers with the LVS and OVS, the TVS adds the team-specific outcomes of Satisfaction, Results, Agility, and Sustainability. Quick and easy to administer, the TVS provides the data needed to have a transformational dialogue about team dynamics and performance.

Organizational Vital Signs (OVS)

OVS is a well-validated measure of organizational climate using a focused survey that is completed online. It rapidly and accurately provides a snapshot of the people-side of the organization. Beyond a staff satisfaction measure, OVS measures key Vital Signs performance drivers linked to practical enterprise-specific outcomes as a roadmap for improvement. The organization-level outcomes are Retention, Productivity, Customer Focus, and Future Success.
