Leadership Training & Development Overview
Some people are natural leaders. Others may not believe they have innate leadership skills, but through leadership assessment solutions, can be developed and trained to become successful and talented managers. The challenge for many mid-level businesses is figuring out the best ways to support and nurture these leaders, helping them to reach their full potential.
How This Affects Your Business
If your leaders aren’t properly trained and supported, they in turn will find it difficult to mentor and develop the staff members they supervise. As a result, many of your staff members will likely fail to perform at their best and may stagnate in place.
How We Can Help
At Profiles International, we know you want to support your company’s leaders, but aren’t sure exactly how best to do that. Our tools can help you understand where your leaders need support and training—and can also suggest the best ways to motivate and encourage these employees.
If your management staff includes people who have great potential but don’t quite have the level of leadership skills or experience they need to excel in their role, we can help.
Profiles International has several resources to help you identify and develop your current and future leaders. Our primary tool to help your leadership development challenges is the Checkpoint 360°™. This assessment tool evaluates a wide range of job skills and management aptitudes, partly based on surveys completed by staff members who work in a variety of different capacities with the manager being evaluated.
This provides you and the manager with unique insight into how their leadership style is perceived by those around them. As part of this assessment, we also provide recommendations of tactics that can improve the specific employee’s leadership skills and enhance professional development.
