Good leaders often go unchallenged to rise to the level of greatness required to positively impact the organization. The research is clear; great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather they possess a handful of profound strengths. Help your leaders build their signature strengths in ways that will positively impact your organization.
Direct reports overwhelming name one trait that would have the greatest impact on organizational performance if it were executed well by their leaders: the ability to inspire and motivate. Yet, when leaders’ traits are scored, ‘inspiring and motivating’ is consistently the lowest on the list. The good news is that the behaviors that make a leader inspiring and motivating can be studied and practiced, resulting in newfound heights for performance.
A brilliant strategy is irrelevant if your organization fails to execute on it. Unfortunately, the majority of companies, by their own admission, aren’t very good at strategy execution. The success or failure of a great strategy is dependent on thousands of decisions and actions taken every day. Many by employees who may not understand or even feel connected and committed to the strategy. The fundamental role of leadership is thus to guide and influence this activity. By combining a practical methodology with the right knowledge and skills we can help your leaders communicate the need for change, inspire commitment and collaboration, align activity with the strategy and values, and manage performance in a way that drives successful outcomes for both the organization and your employees.
