What is a leader?
We are passionate about our belief that leaders are developed, and we also believe that you do not have to have “direct reports” to be a leader. Leadership development is an on-going process that begins when you join an organization, well before the time a person becomes a supervisor. We all lead by example, the question is what type of example are we setting? Putting the right building blocks in place to grow vibrant leaders within your organization is where great organizations excel. Every day.
While the “deep water development” technique for leadership development may have been what some leaders have experienced in their career, we do not believe that leadership development needs to be so haphazard, nor risk inherent. Our leadership development process is based on a five-step model with a built-in process for continuous feedback and improvement. It starts with setting the right direction and expectations, continues with hiring the right people for now and for the future, and then develops individuals and teams by providing them with the appropriate skills and competencies to set them up for success. The five steps in the process are then regularly evaluated for continuous improvement using a feedback loop on all five aspects of the leadership pie. If you would like to learn more about how this process can help your organization or to get a snapshot of where your organization is today and how to move it to where you want to be tomorrow, please contact us.
