CLIMB: Civilian Leader Improvement Battery

Welcome to the Civilian Leader Improvement Battery (CLIMB) Assessment Center

The CLIMB is short for Civilian Leader Improvement Battery. The CLIMB is an assessment designed to measure leadership competencies and identify training suited to your strengths and weaknesses. You and your supervisor or mentor independently complete portions of the CLIMB.

When both of you have completed the CLIMB, it generates several tailored feedback reports designed to help you interpret your results and focus on your most important leadership competencies. You can then select training program information for each of the competencies you would like to develop. Finally, the CLIMB will generate an individualized development plan (IDP) containing each of the training courses you select.

The CLIMB is voluntary and results of your assessments are strictly confidential between you and your supervisor or mentor. No one else has access to your individual data, which is stripped of personal identifiers and maintained by an independent firm on a secured server.

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
