: Self-assessment is a valuable tool for educational leaders to identify areas of strength and areas that need improvement. This process involves examining various aspects of educational management, such as planning, understanding the psychology of students and teachers, self-organization and time management, coordination of organisational activities, impact on student experience and learning outcomes, motivation and professional development of teachers, team building, and leadership skills. This innovation self-assessment presents a scale for evaluating an educational leader's level of competency, which includes five levels of proficiency, from no experience to exceptional expertise. An interactive spider web visualisation will be created based on leaders’ responses that allows them to assess their skills and competencies in various aspects of educational management. It was developed and tested quantitatively with a select group of leaders. The results showed that it was effective in helping them gain valuable insights into their skills and competencies, and identify areas for further development. In line with that, it provides a starting point for educational leaders to identify their strengths and weaknesses in this area and to develop strategies for enhancing their educational management skills and help leaders become more effective in their role and improve overall educational outcomes. Based on the positive feedback received from the testing group, this self-assessment tool is now being considered for wider implementation in educational management practices.
