No.1 Leadership Development Mistake
Australasia’s leadership programs are failing. CEOs say the top two strategies for addressing their challenges are: 1) raise employee engagement 2) improve leadership development programs. We know that traditional classroom only leadership development does not improve on-job leadership performance, employee engagement and business performance. Given the significant expenditure on leadership training, this is a massive failure. The number one mistake is not setting up leadership development for improving business performance. We break the solution down into three actionable parts:
Part 1: Focus on business improvement Part 2: Get ruthless about measuring leadership performance improvements Part 3: Have the right owners.
Growing Leadership Effectiveness
What is the secret to growing leadership effectiveness? How can you help your organisation be where you want it to be, both in leadership quality and financial success, in the next three years? A major opportunity lies in leveraging the use of Leadership Analytics to improve leadership effectiveness across your organisation, and then identifying the subsequent impact on employee engagement and financial performance. This cannot be a one-off programme like much leadership development is at the moment. Rather it must involve an on-going leadership improvement process that runs month after month, year after year; driven and supported by a partnership between HR and the business itself.To request other Onirik whitepapers, go to Contact Us.
Sustainable Leadership Improvement
Every organisation desires to be more efficient, effective, and profitable. However, in an effort to achieve this and improve company performance, a critical group of people are often overlooked – the organisation’s first-line and middle managers. These managers are key to an organisation’s success because they directly influence the discretionary effort of their direct reports; an important indicator of employee satisfaction, motivation, and performance. The good news is that this problem can be rectified for any organisation by implementing 5 key elements. These 5 keys of sustainable leadership improvement are simple yet powerful, and create a process that develops high performing managers and ultimately a much more successful organisation.To request other Onirik whitepapers, go to Contact Us.
