Leadership Development

Developing your leadership is a life-long journey.  Powerful leaders don’t arrive and then stop learning.  Conversely, they commit to continuous learning about how to show up in their professional and personal lives in ways that make big contributions.

As an associate of the Leadership Circle group, I use their world class, award-winning tools along with other outstanding assessments to help leaders grow. Increasing awareness is critical.

Building Awareness

The Leadership Circle Profile:  360° Feedback Assessment

The Leadership Circle Profile is designed to accelerate leadership effectiveness beyond traditional competency-based approaches. When it comes to developing leaders, training to competencies alone does not work very well. For more rapid and lasting results, it is crucial that organizations help leaders gain deeper insight into their behavior and what’s driving it.

The Leadership Circle Profile™ is the only 360° competency assessment that simultaneously provides validated, focused competency feedback while revealing the underlying assumptions that are causing a leader’s pattern of strengths and limitations.

The Leadership Circle Profile (and the corresponding Manager version) helps leaders understand the relationship between how they think and behave, and, more importantly, how all this impacts their leadership effectiveness. Once this awareness is established, leadership development can rapidly proceed. Without it, change rarely happens.

Leadership Culture Survey

The “MRI” of Your Leadership Culture

Effective leadership outperforms ineffective leadership. That’s why leadership is a primary competitive advantage and strategic priority. To a large degree, the effectiveness of your leadership system determines the organization’s performance. Especially in volatile and uncertain business environments.

The Leadership Culture Survey is the most comprehensive assessment available on the overall health and effectiveness of the leadership in your organization. It provides a powerful “MRI” of your leadership culture based on your people and your data. You don’t need to rely on some external consultant’s perspective.

Used for your entire organization, or just a leadership team, the Leadership Culture Survey reveals valuable data, tells you how your people view their current leadership culture, and compares that reality to the optimal culture they desire. The “gap” between the current culture and desired culture, instantly reveals key opportunities for leadership development. The Leadership Culture Survey also benchmarks your leadership culture to other organizations.

A Leadership Culture Survey will:

  • Establish a compelling rationale for change.
  • Focus leadership development efforts.
  • Delineate cultural challenges associated with acquisitions, mergers and restructuring plans.
  • Correlate leadership to productivity, profits, turnover, and other bottom line metrics

The Hogan Suite of Assessments: Predicting Performance

There are two keys to success in business: money and people. Hogan uses the powerful science of personality assessment to help you hire the right people, develop talented employees, build great leaders, and impact the bottom line.

Executive Coaching

Executive Coaching and Senior Leader Development is a collaborative relationship creating successful results involving working with leaders and managers to reach a specific goal in their professional development. Or simply being the person who acts as a thoughtful confidant knowing that leaders require private conversations and an opportunity to discuss ideas and actions in a completely confidential manner.

The focus may be on any number of topics or processes but may include interpersonal and professional communication, leading people, organizational effectiveness, an executive presence, strategic planning, conflict, or building an effective team.

Our approach is to truly understand not only the executive leader we work with but also the business or organization and industry he or she operates within. Not to say that we become industry experts, as that would be foolhardy to even suggest, but we strive to understand the business environment as best as possible.
