Abstract: We define the complete numerical radius norm for homomorphisms from any operator algebra into $ \mathcal B(\mathcal H)$, and show that this norm can be computed explicitly in terms of the completely bounded norm. This is used to show that if $ K$ is a complete $ C$-spectral set for an operator $ T$, then it is a complete $ M$-numerical radius set, where $ M=\frac 12(C+C^{-1})$. In particular, in view of Crouzeix's theorem, there is a universal constant $ M$ (less than 5.6) so that if $ P$ is a matrix polynomial and $ T \in \mathcal B(\mathcal H)$, then $ w(P(T)) \le M \Vert P\Vert _{W(T)}$. When $ W(T) = \overline {\mathbb{D}}$, we have $ M = \frac 54$.
