Why Leadership Matters
The influence leaders and managers have on the performance of their teams and ultimately their organisations cannot be understated.
Leaders shape the way people think and behave – leaders are viewed by others as role models – people look to see if their behaviour is consistent with the organisations espoused values and philosophy.
Leaders set the agenda. Leaders influence the organisations culture and in turn the long term effectiveness of the organisation. Leaders and managers set the context within which organisational members strive for excellence and work together to achieve organisational goals.
Human Synergistics’ research, particularly that of Dr Robert A Cooke (HSI CEO and distinguished academic), clearly highlights the relationship between leadership strategies, the impact leaders have on others and effectiveness in the leadership role. This impact has enormous significance in helping understand organisational culture and the role norms and expectations play in organisational effectiveness.
Leadership helps shape culture. Culture in turn shapes leadership. They both drive performance.
We help those in leadership roles identify the relationship between behavioural strategies and styles and leadership effectiveness and provide a process for building personal capability in the leadership role.
We offer a range of measurement tools designed to develop leaders and managers that meet rigorous academic and psychometric standards while being practical and relevant to the real world. These can be provided as part of your individual, leadership, group or organisational development programmes and can be presented by one of our own consultants, one of our accredited consultants or you can become accredited yourself.
