We all know that the success of any organization rises and falls on its leadership. The more proper leadership is catered to, the more successful a company is, but being a successful leader is more challenging than ever. We are amid a pandemic, a new normal, and a whole boomer generation that is retiring (we think).
Statistics show that 86% of business leaders agree that the success of their company hinges on their leaders, but only 13% have confidence in their rising leaders. If you think that this lack of trust is because of the incapability of these talented individuals, that is not the case. People in business know for a fact that the upcoming leaders will have more expertise than anyone before them. However, the issue is more about how to provide them with proper tools and guidelines which will help them in using their knowledge in the right direction!
Leadership development and training are some of the most basic requirements for anyone who aspires to lead a group of people. This is why companies try their best to maximize strengths, build up weaknesses, and identify blind spots in the next generation of leaders.
Although, at this point, you may ask, how exactly does a leader maximize their impact over the long term? Well, high levels of influence endure only with the successful and consistent reflection of oneself and the recalibration of one’s priorities. The more you understand about yourself and others, the more successful you can be in leading your people. For this, leaders need to invest in the right priorities while keeping those priorities in the correct order, so that, the true potential can be reached.
If your company thinks that its leaders should take this forward, we are here to help! Through planning, assessments, collaboration, feedback, and accountability, we will help your rising leaders achieve what they want for themselves and their team(s). Take a look at this sample, and you will get a clearer idea of what we are hinting towards.
In the above sample material, we walk through our quadrants of invitation and challenge, noting the strengths and weaknesses of each one of them. Ultimately every organization gravitates to one of these four realities: an empowered culture, a cozy culture, a boring culture, or a stressful culture.
If your leaders of the future take this module with us, they will take a deeper look at the leader and evaluate their natural strengths and weaknesses through the lens of the Invitation-Challenge Matrix. We have discovered over the years that no one is naturally good at both a high invitation and high challenge; every leader is naturally good at one over the other.
This is exactly why we think that this module can help them in the long run! Through this material, we will help the leader operate in the “empowered culture” where the team is fully engaged and reaching their full potential.
