The Care Industry Leadership Capability Assessment Tool 360


The CILCA 360 or the Care Industry Leadership Leadership Assessment Tool was created by Data Drives Insight to help individuals understand and strengthen their abilities as leaders.

The CILCA 360 combines data from both self-assessments and feedback gathered from peers to identify strengths and weaknesses across 5 different leadership domains:

Leading Self – Relationship with, understanding of, and care for self.

Leading Others – Ability to relate to, communicate with, and work effectively with others.

Leading Business – Management of business resources to achieve organisational goals.

Leading Purpose – Ability to articulate and promote the organisation’s sprit, purpose and strategic direction.

Leading Change – capacity to foster a working environment that encourages creative and holistic approaches.

CILCA 360 & Assessing Industry Care Standards

In addition to the 5 leadership domains, the CILCA 360 also incorporates aspects from both the Aged Care Quality Standards and The National Disability Practice Standards. By incorporating these standards into the CILCA 360 it allows for more understanding into the leader's ability to adhere to and offer high standards of care related to both positive client and organisational outcomes.

CILCA 360 Assessment Tool Feedback

After completing the assessment tool, participants receive their CILCA 360 feedback detailing their care and leadership capabilities as well as highlighting any potential opportunities which may require further attention. Another benefit of the CILCA 360 is that it also provides information on the participants ability to impact others which is useful as a leader

About CILCA 360

How CILCA 360 Works

First Leaders complete a self reflection survey online that measures things like their self awareness, leadership skills and leadership qualities. The leaders then elect peers to provide further feedback on their leadership performance via another survey. The results from both surveys are combined and written into a comprehensive report highlighting strengths and also areas for improvement.

As the results compare the self view with that of others, it also helps identify potential blind spots in the participants’ capability as well as confirmed strengths.

Following the survey administration and reporting period, a CILCA 360 accredited practitioner will debrief the results to each leader in a confidential and supportive coaching session.

The accredited practitioner will also work with leaders to further discuss and uncover their motivation for selecting each of their self assessment responses. It is hoped that bringing awareness to one’s underlying beliefs will gives leaders the opportunity to improve their leadership behaviours.

CILCA 360 is administered completely online, with reports provided in either hard or electronic copy making it easy to distribute and administer.

Each participant also receives a comprehensive Self Development Guide resource book to aid in their ongoing development.

CILCA 360 Testimonials

I had just pulled together a new team. By using CILCA 360 we were able to go through a shared journey about the strengths and opportunities of both the team and as individuals.

CILCA 360 allowed a much richer development discussion than is normally the case with traditional 360 type tools. They also provided an invaluable reference guide to target individual development needs.

The process was enlightening and educational on both a professional and personal level. Thank you.

CILCA 360 provided a unique opportunity to have a 360 review of our leadership capability and which also reflected the new Care Standards.

The value of the tool for the Executive Leadership Team and their profiles at RAAFA has enabled each individual to identify areas seen to be strengths and areas for improvement.

John Murray

The way we lead our people and behave at work is the single most important future success factor for both culture and business outcomes.

In our strategy it was a key priority area – to develop our divisions leaders and to
have a very clear vision of our leadership development framework and crystal clear plans around our leadership investment strategy.

I have been looking closely at an organisation that supports individuals specifically in our industry and at our levels to help us each develop individual targeted development plans that are based on organisational strategy
and our own leadership capability.

The reason I like CILCA though is that their questions are based on the national Aged Care Leadership Framework and the new quality standards. The outcome is a very clear graphic display of where your strengths as a leader are
and where there are areas you might want to focus on.

That report is confidential, there is a debrief meeting with an accredited professional to review your results confidentially with you.  From this, you develop you own plan which is the bit you share with your manager and that is what we work
on together. 

They have great resources which a self-directed to support executing the plan.
