A study was conducted to evaluate the role of a feedback-orientation-like construct (Behavioral Feedback Focus) in predicting worthy leadership, performance, and developmental outcomes in a sample of leaders who had undergone executive assessment and coaching at Irving, TX-based Leadership Worth Following, LLC. Results of the study suggest that a construct similar to feedback orientation, Behavioral Feedback Focus, is implicitly measured by the Worthy Leadership Model, and that this construct is both conceptually and empirically related to the Capacity, Commitment, and Character to lead. Assessor ratings of Behavioral Feedback Focus were found to be related to 360° outcomes including ratings of Worthy Leadership, past performance, and development, particularly as measured by the inbox simulation. Results of this study are presented, together with a discussion of methodological and practical implications to assessment processes and the broader fields of executive assessment, executive coaching, and Consulting Psychology.
