Attend this webinar to learn what worked well in 2013, what to anticipate for 2014, and how to increase the effectiveness of every leader in your organization with zero dollar investment.
Leadership Development Overview
It’s common—especially in relatively new or quickly expanding companies—that people may end up in a supervisory role before they have had a chance to obtain the training that would best prepare them for a management position. Unfortunately, you really can’t afford to let them ease into this role slowly. They must get up to speed as quickly as possible in order to best serve those they supervise.
How This Affects Your Business
If your business lacks good leaders, your staff members will likely lack the guidance they need to thrive and succeed. In addition, new employees won’t have the benefit of a good mentor who can share wisdom and valuable professional lessons.
How We Can Help
Profiles International has solutions that can help with your leadership development needs. Our tools are designed to encourage managers to do their own self-assessment, so they can evaluate their leadership abilities and identify areas where they may need more development. In addition, they will receive direction as to specific actions they can take to improve their leadership abilities.
Our solutions incorporate objective, clear-cut data. There are no personal judgments or opinions, thus avoiding the negative reactions that can sometimes result from evaluations made by an individual. In addition, our tools provide a method for the managers (and their supervisors) to track and monitor their progress.
Profiles International has developed a 360° feedback system to help identify and develop leadership skills. The foundation for this system is a tool called the Checkpoint 360°™ which is a reliable and efficient way to evaluate a long list of specific job skills within several important management categories. This system incorporates surveys that are completed by the managers themselves, as well as others who work with them at several different levels of the organization.
