Step 1: Individual & Collective Leadership Assesment.
There are many 360°’s available. The only model that passed our integral mindset test, as well as that of our partner trans4mation, is the ‘The Leadership Circle Profile™’. We told you before: we are picky! True Value Innovators has certified coaches to take and debrief these assessments.
Step 2: Individual & Collective Leadership Transformation Coaching.
Using the insights from the individual and the collective assessments enables us to coach managers, both on an individual and collective level, to become servant leaders. But coaching is not our main objective: Business Transformation, Agile Transformation and Leadership Transformation have to be done together for your reorganisation to achieve real, sustainable results and effectively realise added value..
To become future ready and to stay future proof, it takes three (3) to tango.
1) Business transformation.
Yes, you must shape your own future today for you to become the UBER of your sector. It is the only way to survive this VUCA environment. Right here, right now.
Stanford studies show that the best moment to dramatically transform your business is when you still make a profit, if not when you make your profits ever! Chances are you”re at the tipping point before you fall…if you do nothing. Paraphrasing Bill Gates: “If you don’t make your own products obsolete, someone else will”
These studies also show that, generally, every company must totally rethink itself every 5 years. Consider how a paper factory in Finland became the world’s premier mobile phone company, by way of manufacturing bicycle tires, rubber boots, televisions, and personal computers. While Nokia’s road to success still took the better part of 50 years it is indicative of how relevant business transformation is.
2) Agile Transformation.
Having a new business plan or strategy ready to roll out is a fine first step. But it isn’t enough. Our environment evolves so quickly and unexpectedly that you need the capacity and capability to come up with new business plans and strategies on an all but continuous basis. And that cannot only come from the top down -, it has to come from within the entire organisation.
The organisation must become an agile, innovative, self-steering and driven by design thinking. Only organisation that have this agile culture and mindset are capable of shaping their, future on a continuous basis.
3) (Collective) Leadership Transformation.
The former two only work if the organisation’s entire management transform to servant leaders, both individually and collectively.The first step is for both the individual and collective leadership to be assessed. Using the insights of the assessment, managers can be coached from reactive to more effective and creative leadership.
‘The Leadership Profile 360°’
Insights that Accelerates Effectiveness.
The Leadership Circle Profile is designed to accelerate leadership effectiveness beyond traditional competency-based approaches. When it comes to developing leaders, training to competencies alone does not work very well. For more rapid and lasting results, it is crucial that organizations help leaders gain deeper insight into their behavior and what is driving it. The Leadership Circle Profile™ is the only 360 degree competency assessment that simultaneously provides focused competency feedback while revealing the underlying assumptions that are causing a leader’s pattern of strengths and limitations. The Leadership Circle Profile helps leaders understand the relationship between how they habitually think, how they behave, and, more importantly, how all this impacts their current level of leadership effectiveness. Once this awareness is established, leadership development can proceed. Without it, change rarely happens.
