Leadership Portal

The Center’s Leadership Portal offers students and faculty the opportunity to learn about their leadership and teamwork through the Leadership Coaching Module and Teamwork Assessments. Coaches, coachees, team members, and advisers all use the same login: leadportal.northwestern.edu.

On the Coaching Module, coaches and coachees use the software to share session agendas and track a coachee's progress over the course of their meetings.

Teamwork Assessment

The Teamwork Assessment (TwA) app is designed to help faculty and students identify and eliminate common teamwork problems (ie. exclusivity, improper division of responsibility, miscommunication, lack of delegation, failure to accomplish goals) so that students can learn how to improve their interpersonal skills and focus more on the project at hand with fewer distractions.
