We aim for our clients to become Leadership Factories where the right quality of new leaders is produced with significantly reduced lead time and cost.
This is why our team of experts has incorporated talent acceleration strategies into a leadership development LINE that enables your emerging talent to grow their careers through 3 main Labs:
Gallup survey of 80,000 leaders found that, although there are advantages for those with more education, seniority and experience, those traits alone do not grant success. Acute self-awareness came out from the survey as the common factor among the most successful people. People destined for leadership success know themselves, their strengths, their weaknesses and what they need to deliver. They know what skills they need to develop to get to the level they desire and they will actively seek the support.
Therefore, we believe that building strong self-awareness in your high-potential employees should be the first and the most important step within their leadership development journey. In our Discovery Lab we start with an on-line assessment process that provides your talent with insights about:
- their strengths and areas in which to immediately deploy them
- areas for their development planning
- their core motivation and values which will determine what activities they will see as meaningful and fulfilling
Talents in almost every organization and every geography are typically bright, confident, articulate people. However, in cases where they are significantly distinct from the workforce around them – they do not succeed in their career aspirations. Some of the most storied “talent factories” in the world often say that they focus their talent investments on the best people - those who thrive in their business context, and in their social systems. This means that for becoming a successful future leader, high-potential employees will need to understand the DNA of their corporate social systems.
We know that strong self awareness is pointless unless your talent is able to decode the corporate culture. A good understanding of business context and your social systems will help them to respond successfully to both opportunities and obstacles in their work. Within our Networking Lab your emerging talent will learn how to navigate the business context and build sustainable network of key relationships. We will provide them with:
- A personal career coach to help them unlock their potential, maximize their performance through their strengths and develop strong social awareness to thrive in a particular business context
- Structured assignments before and after each coaching session dedicated to address their particular challenges
- Detailed and relevant feedback collected within the Experience Lab.
Recent research activities indicate that changing times require different leadership. While the results slightly vary around the world, there is a lot of consistency across the board in terms of the common qualities the future leaders share regardless of their occupation. Those most important traits for the success of future leaders proved to be:
- Strategic Thinking
- Drive for Results
- Collaborative Leadership
- Ability to Navigate Change
Our approach to leadership capabilities development is focused on solutions that provide opportunities for your talent to fail and learn in simulated business situations. Learning how to lead in so called “risk free zones” is innovative, fun and highly engaging way to accelerate the transition of high-potential employees towards your leadership future.
