If People are your Biggest Advantage, How Do You Get Your Leaders to Lead Effectively?
We coach to a leadership framework (The Leadership Circle) that measures leadership effectiveness and creates awareness.
This model, combined with coaching, will reduce their reactive tendencies allow powerful dimensions of effectiveness to grow out of everyone, including the leader and everyone around them.
The primary responsibility of business leaders is to engage employees and grow leaders.
The Leadership Circle Profile measures leadership effectiveness.
We assess the effectiveness of leadership as it correlates directly to business performance. The components measured expose the proven competencies needed, and the reactive tendencies to be reduced. Measuring and understanding these dimensions gives you a path to drastically improved leadership. If you can measure it, you can develop it.
Of course, some may have a behavioral style or specific strengths that make it more likely that they will be perceived as a leader. But in the end, anyone who wants to lead or build something with the help of other people, must consciously intend to lead others where they want them to go. This takes work and effort to do things in a certain way, and to improve upon the decisions and behaviors that will get them there.
The specific actions and behaviors needed to lead an organization of people depends on the number of employees. The natural progression of a career often leads from a task-oriented position to a functional management position managing task-oriented people, and eventually to a general management position in which you are now “managing the managers.” This last step is often the most difficult.
Understand the difference between managing and leading. Do both, but at different times with different people. Managing and leading reinforce each other, but having a solid foundation as a manager helps a lot in becoming a better leader.
Work at leading with intention. Along the way, help the other leaders in your company to develop their leadership. In this way you will become a “born leader.”
Managing is about executing the core strategy of the organization. We must:
- Measure and execute on the defined Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
- Develop management on the 4 keys to being successful:
- Defining the results of the job
- Selecting the right person for the job
- Motivate employees based on the strengths of the individual
- Developing leadership
Strategize, Inspire, and Execute on new initiatives to create positive business performance.
We must do 2 things to develop leadership that improves business performance:
- We proactively develop the leadership competencies that are proven to positively correlate with business effectiveness.
- We minimize our reactive tendencies that are proven to negatively correlate with business effectiveness.
Developing Individual Leaders
MEASURE EFFECTIVENESS AND INEFFECTIVENESS
We cut through the “soft skills” to measure you against proven leadership competencies that positively correlate to business performance. Then we measure your reactive tendencies that negatively correlate to business performance. These tendencies are the key to transformation as they hold you back from getting the best performance from your people.
Group Leadership Development
CUMULATIVE LEADERSHIP IMPROVEMENT INCREASES EFFECTIVENESS EXPONENTIALLY
Developing leaders in groups works especially well because they have the support of others to change. Our Universal Model of Leadership will facilitate growth for all leaders. The payoff is proven to positively impact the bottom-line.
As an Executive Coach, I will help you clearly see how the results you achieve are directly related to the quality of your behaviors and decisions. If you improve in those two areas, by being less reactive and more proactive, you will drastically improve your results.
