- Barrett Leadership Assessment
Leadership is not about the organisation or the goal, it’s about people inspiring other people to get things done.
Understand your cultural impact
and become an effective leader
As a leader, you make decisions and manage employees, of course, but you are also a de facto cultural leader. Consciously or not, your manner and behavior transmits a wide range of cultural markers and sets the stage for a healthy or dysfunctional organization. Leadership development is an essential part of the cultural transformation towards a healthy and change resistant company.
Leaders tend to focus solely on the “hard impacts” they have: deliverables, policies, profits. But leaders have an enormous cultural impact on their workplace as well. Too often, they miss this essential second role – wrongly thinking it’s too difficult to quantify or develop – and thus overlooking one of the most powerful contributions they can make to their organization’s success.In fact, leaders who engage in development routinely express surprise at how satisfying the process is, how measurable the results are, and how fast the return is.
There may be no effective or more economical way to increase an organization’s performance.
Beyond strict performance parameters, leaders report that self-development connects them to their employees on a new level, and makes them more adept at providing a work environment that implicitly appreciates the humanity of their employees – the kind of ideal workplace in which purpose, motivation, and productivity are all tied together.
We magnify the effectiveness of leaders by helping them recognize their true cultural impact and embrace an authentic leadership style. Leadership Development cultivates the skills leaders need to:
Work more effectively with their leadership team
Engage with integrity and authenticity, the basis of trust
Better utilize the “soft skills” necessary to create a truly fulfilling and productive workplace
Find greater satisfaction, meaning, and connection in their work
