Career Development Tools

The Civilian Leader Improvement Battery (CLIMB) is a web-based self-assessment tool to help you identify your leadership strengths and weaknesses. This two-part assessment tool includes a Personal Characteristics Assessment and a 180-degree Self-Supervisor Assessment. Before you begin a CLIMB assessment, you need to coordinate with your supervisor or mentor, whose input is required for the system to generate a feedback score report for you. After completing the assessment, you will receive narrative feedback and recommendations on competencies you need to improve in your leadership skills.

The assessment takes approximately 90 minutes for you to complete and 60 minutes for your supervisor or mentor to complete.

Benefits of the CLIMB include the ability to:

  • Explore your interest in pursuing a leadership role
  • Measure your leadership skills
  • Highlight training options to develop your skills
  • Facilitate a coaching/mentoring relationship with your supervisor
