Individual support to meet the challanges of leading
Many of our clients ask us for individual coaching on leadership skills. We coach and train individuals with over thirty years of leadership experience. Others just start to lead. Coaching can help to get to the essence of the right questions.
In preparation, we connect on existing knowledge and experience and define the steps to reach out for the desired outcomes. During the coaching we use the latest 360 tests to get an objective view of different leadership qualities.
Coaching and training might take some weeks or might be set up for some years. Subjects in every meeting are the actual challenges you are facing at that moment in time.
INTERVENTING BEHAVIORAL PATTERNS
In recent times, our efficiency has become a natural expectation. We are often intrinsically motivated to do our best in order to reach our goals.
However, sometimes we are surprised to find we are stuck on certain issues. We repeat the same inefficient behavioural patterns despite our sincerest or most passionate attempts to move forward.
The Immunity to Change one day workshop is designed to identify and influence the core of our unconscious system of beliefs. This system may prevent us from making the progress we desire. During the program, you will get a deeper insight into the interconnection of thoughts behind your behaviour. You will also learn to challenge your implicit assumptions. After this workshop you will be able to break through a resistance to change.
The Leadership Circle ©
The Leadership Circle © measures your current leadership competencies on 41 aspects. We combine the observations and experiences of at least 15 respondents (e.g. executives, team members and customers) which creates a so-called 360° inventory.
This way you can determine objectively how you position yourself in relation to third parties and vice versa. The Leadership Circle Manager Edition © accurately tests management aspects and shows how you are perceived by others.
Achieving Style Inventory ©
For a unique overview and analysis of your behavioral styles we use the assessments of The Connective LeadershipInstitute. The ASI: Achieving Style Inventory © visualizes your preference to connect with others. It indicates your current behavior: where attention should be paid in the event of changes and which skills are required. The A-ASI: Aspirational Achieving Style Inventory © measures your desired behavior. Together with the ASI, the desired adjustments will become crystal clear.
Communication Style Survey ©
This assessment determines your preference in communication styles under normal circumstances and under pressure. How can differences in your style be explained in a different context? With these insights, it becomes clear that you should constantly tune in to the style of others. To connect, you must be able to recognize the style of others and go along with this style while maintaining your authenticity.
Follower style Inventory©
With the inventory of the Courageous Follower two major factors will be described the degree of energetic and loyal support a follower gives a leader, and how willing the follower is to challenge a leader’s policies or behaviors if they seem detrimental to the success of the organization’s mission or values. These are the primary characteristics needed for collaboration. The assessment contains two kinds of questions. The first are “Would” questions: If you were confronted with a certain situation what do you think you would do. Answer these based on an honest assessment of yourself and your likely behavior in a given situation. The second are “When” questions: When you are confronted with a certain situation what in fact do you actually do.
Thomas Killman Survey ™
The Thomas Killman Survey ™ explores your conflict resolution preferences. Which approach do you prefer and which do you consciously or unconsciously leave behind? Here we explain the basics for a strategy you can choose to achieve your goal. Which approach delivers the desired result? How can you escalate a situation safely?
Immunity to Change
The Harvard method “Immunity to Change” (Lisa Lahey and Robert Kegan), gives you insights into hidden blockages that present highly desirable behaviour. It teaches you to preserve existing core values and to dare to explore unconscious assumptions and replace them with new experiences. Step by step this method takes you through a process that provides insight into your personal invisible immunity. You will work on a personal plan to bypass blockages in a targeted manner with an adjustment or change.
Gill Hickman and Georgia Sorenson started in 2004 a worldwide study: Invisible Leadership. They demonstrate that invisible leadership leads to better and more sustainable results. The core of their findings: this way of working has helped many teams to achieve a goal rapidly and in a targeted manner without direct leadership. The bottom line is that the charisma of a common purpose is more effective and durable than a person’s charisma.
Immunity to Trust
How do you build a trusted relationship? The insight exceptional provides clarity and has practical solutions to gain mutual trust. This interactive program specifies how to set up a sustainable relationship. It shows how you can make targeted and successful adjustments in order to achieve a trusted personal and business relationship.
Courageous Followership: what is desirable behavior of employees?
“Kein Mensch hat das Recht zu gehorchen,” wrote Hannah Arendt, philosopher and political thinker. How do followers get the best of their leader? Ira Chaleff explores the active and loyal support that an employee gives a leader. How willing is the follower to discuss a leader’s policies or behavior when it is detrimental to the success of the organization’s mission or values? With practical exercises, the participants learn their styles and abilities to assist their leader in a better way in achieving their common goal.
