Leadership Model Development
Build your Framework for High Performance Leadership
A well designed Leadership Model is an essential foundation for driving business performance.
It sets the standard for your most valuable assets, defines how your leaders should behave and identifies what capabilities they need to deliver results you need. Furthermore, it sets the tone for your business and defines your culture from the top.
Building the right Leadership Model means answering four key questions. These define the leadership capabilities and skills you need both now and in the future:
- What are your future goals?
When we know your goals, we can define the framework for a model that will capture the right leadership behavior - and explain the competencies your executives will need in order to meet the challenges of tomorrow. But, we need to address another question:
- Are your goals and strategy alligned?
Of course your strategy must be tailored to achieve future goals. Together with your leadership team, we review current and future organizational strategy before we start to create a Leadership Model. Next, based on your strategy:
- What are your key activities?
Clarifying the activities on which your organization needs to focus in order to implement its strategy is an obvious but typically challenging next step. A facilitated process helps develop a shared vision across your leadership team and ensure that you are ready to move forward together:
- What behavior will help you reach your goals?
Now we define the behaviors that will lead to success in performing key activities and implementing your strategy. Our experts bring the picture together to make a simple, clear and strategically aligned leadership model that describes what you will expect from your leaders in the future.
The complete understanding of the answers to these four questions will lead to a future-proof Leadership Model that is aligned to the genuine needs of your organization. And in so doing, you will create a set of competencies that can be implemented more easily – after all, you develop it with the active participation of your key people.
