What is the ABLE-P?

The ABLE-P (Post) gives you the data you need to:  

  • Measure the IMPACT of training and development initiatives your organization implements after using the ABLE link and ABLE-S link to establish benchmarks
  • Provide your leaders with meaningful feedback on their Leader Effectiveness Action Plans
  • Refine your training and development initiatives to produce an even greater impact
  • Help leaders refine their Leader Effectiveness Action Plans

ABLE Post Apples to Apples Image

One of the most powerful elements of the ABLE-P is its specifically keyed question-by-question correspondence with the pre-assessment, whether you used the ABLE, ABLE-S or both. Because of this, you can rest assured that you will be comparing apples to apples and getting accurate measurements.

The ABLE-P’s question-by-question analysis and pre- and post-results provide greater depth than other 360° assessments. The ABLE-P is typically administered 90-120 days after training and development initiatives are completed. Just like the ABLE and ABLE-S, the ABLE-P report has visually appealing graphs that are followed by customized description paragraphs that give detailed explanations of results. 


  • Predicts leadership success
  • Reliable test/re-test results

  • Effectiveness Action Plan included in report
  • Easy to administer

How Does the ABLE-P Work?

The ABLE-P is easy to administer. Between 90-120 days after the ABLE or ABLE-S Action Plan has been completed, the leader, leader’s boss and direct reports or peers complete a second questionnaire about their perceptions of the leader’s performance on the same nine core skill sets measured in the first assessment. This produces a comprehensive, 360° view of the effectiveness of the Leader Effectiveness Action Plan and any coaching or training initiatives completed in response to results on the ABLE or ABLE-S. As with the first assessments, individual responses of peers and direct reports remain anonymous and are shown as averages only. Confidential feedback is again provided to the leader in a non-threatening, easy-to-understand format using simple graphs and customized paragraphs.

What Does the ABLE-P Assess?

The ABLE-P measures the same nine core leader competencies as the ABLE or ABLE-S.

Report Features

Despite the underlying robustness of the assessment, the ABLE-P report itself is easy to read and understand. Unlike most 360° assessment reports, the ABLE-P is not full of confusing statistics that busy supervisors and managers may not have time to read and interpret.

Easy-to-read report features include:

  • Bar graphs allow participants to compare how they rated themselves the first time with their current self-rating.
  • Bar graphs allow participants to compare how their boss, direct reports and/or peers rated them the first time with their current ratings.
  • Computer-generated comments based on raters’ responses give additional feedback on which areas show improvement and which areas have gaps in performance perception.
  • Customized paragraphs following the graphs explaining more fully what the numerical scores mean in terms of leader performance and changes in performance from pre- to post-assessments.
  • Comments written by raters can be given to the leader or used by the feedback specialist to guide feedback discussions and refine Leader Effectiveness Action Plans or initiatives.


  • Fast and easy for raters to use (10 minutes to complete questionnaire)
  • Easy-to-read graphs: Pre- and Post- self, self/boss, self/direct reports and/or self/peers
  • Composite graphs highlighting patterns and differences
  • Computer-generated, question-by-question comments that allow participants to drill deeply into their results and see which areas they have improved in and which still have gaps, including any changes between the pre- and post-assessment
  • Open-ended rater comments (available to the feedback specialist) can be given to participants or used by the feedback specialist to guide questions during feedback session
  • Customized explanation of graphs, including explanations of any changes between pre- and post-assessment
  • Leader Effectiveness Action Plan for development
  • The ABLE family of assessments can be normed to your company’s leaders
