The success of any organization rises and falls on its leadership. We all know too well:
“As the leaders go, so goes the company.”
It’s mission-critical, therefore, that individuals and teams do all they can to maximize strengths, build-up weaknesses, and identify blind-spots. It’s only when leaders invest in the right priorities, while keeping those priorities in the correct order, that true potential can be reached.
How does a leader maximize their impact over the long-term? High levels of influence endure only with the successful (and consistent) reflection and recalibration of one’s priorities. This continual realignment allows the best leaders to keep the most important at the forefront, cutting through the constant barrage of tasks, activities, interruptions and urgent requests.
- Understand their strengths in all five areas of the Prioritized Leader Assessment
- Gain insight into how leaders consciously and unconsciously order the five capitals in relation to the ideal ordering
- Have the opportunity to engage in a deep dive analysis within each section, examining low scores, reflecting on opportunities for growth, thinking through suggested next steps and considering potential blind spots
- Be able to share their results with other colleagues and team members to reflect upon their validity, ask for honest feedback, and brainstorm opportunities for improvement
- Create an action plan designed to give clear and concrete next steps to move the participants to greater levels of influence and impact as a leader
The Prioritized Leader Framework: The priorities needed to truly succeed in life
- Purpose: The vision to see, articulate and go for a compelling future. The currency is integrity and inspiration.
- People: The level of health and productivity we have with our colleagues and connections. The currency is encouragement and accountability.
- Pace: Discerning how fast (or slow) the organization needs to move to sustain long-term success, capitalize on opportunities, and preserve capital. The currency is time and energy.
- Perception: Choosing a growth mindset, staying open to creative solutions and new ideas. The currency is insight and innovation.
- Profit: The effective management, investment and release of an organization’s resources. The currency is dollars and cents.
