CARL is the result of more than 4 years of research in the area of responsible leadership and pedagogy. The assessment test is based on a deductive attempt of defining responsible leadership based on a comprehensive review of the latest academic literature on the topic, including of the GRLI materials. Developed with the consulting arm of the renowned behavioral economists research team around Ernst Fehr, Europe’s most prominent economist, the survey builds on insights from large scale behavioral tests, inviting the respondents to discover their developmental potential in their responsible leadership capacity. Tested and calibrated earlier in 2016, the free online assessment for individuals is now also available for universities or organizations to measure the before & after score of individuals, courses or entire programs over a period of time. For such comparative reports, a code can be obtained for such purposes at CARL@bsl-lausanne.ch against a small administrative fee. We are interested in collaborating with any interested scholar, course, program or university to set up such surveys and welcome the voluntary help to translate the survey in further languages.
