Elevate Leadership to Thrive in Challenging Times

An organization’s ability to thrive in challenging times is largely determined by the quality and effectiveness of its leadership. Organizations can change their future by developing their individual leadership talent to meet current and future needs. ARA has partnered with NuVue to create a leadership assessment – called the ARA NAVIGATOR 360° (360-Degree Feedback Instrument) built – specifically for the agricultural industry. 

Intro Video


The ARA NAVIGATOR 360°, as a diagnostic feedback instrument, adds value for individual leaders by powerfully highlighting what they need to develop. This assessment shows the gap between the individual's leadership skills and the leadership the organization needs. This gap will help chart a path for the overall effectiveness of the leadership development investment. For individual leaders, learning strengths and weaknesses is a foundation to developing into better leaders.

ARA NAVIGATOR 360° is a new leadership assessment tool that will assess a leader's effectiveness in two ways: the level of skill the leader has, and the ability to use those skills appropriately when needed. The interactive report guides the leader on skills they use effectively and the skills they need to develop.

Who participates?

The ARA NAVIGATOR 360° is offered for three levels of agricultural leaders to allow every company to assess all its leaders:

  • Emerging Leader 360 (Individual contributors and high potentials)
  • Performance Leader 360 (Frontline people managers, branch managers, supervisors, etc.)
  • Strategic Leader 360 (President, CEO, COO, CFO, vice president, managers of managers, etc.)

“We used the ARA NAVIGATOR 360° for several of our key leaders and the individual coaching sessions with NuVue Business Solutions – really helped our leaders craft an individual leadership development plan." – Clay Houchin at Buttonwillow Warehouse Company

"The ARA NAVIGATOR 360° gave our team great insights to the key skills that are our strengths and suggested several areas where we can improve our team leadership."  – Adriano Santos, vice president, regional business lead for Illinois at Bayer

"We plan to use the ARA NAVIGATOR 360° to assess all our key leaders at Valley Ag." – Richard Lloyd, COO at Valley Agronomics LLC
