Increasing the Bench Strength of your Leadership Pipeline

Posted by Claude Warner on Monday 20th June 2011 at 07:09:47

One continuously hears of the global shortage of good talent, especially at leadership level.
Effective Leaders need to be competent in an array of skills. However, Harvard research has determined that the higher one progresses in leadership the more cognitive and IQ type skills become threshold skills. The distinctive differentiator of leadership effectiveness becomes how well leaders can engage with their team in order to influence (inspire and motivate) them to achieve corporate objectives.
Jim Collins, in Good to Great, describes 5 Levels of Leadership, with Level 5 being the type of Leaders associated with taking companies from Good to Great. He said that most leaders have the potential to develop to Level 5, and that through self-reflection, an intentional process and working with a supportive person this could be achieved.
As an Executive Coach I have had the privilege of working with many leaders. I have seen the results of increasing their awareness of their own behaviour and its impact on others. It is through reflection that one grows the awareness from which intentional action can be taken to change behaviour. Through the ongoing support of a coaching relationship the changes are sustained until the new behaviour becomes the default.
Coaching delivers tangible, and measurable (with pre and post coaching assessment) behavioral change, increasing the bench strength of your leadership pipeline. It is also a very valuable intervention to help existing senior leaders who need to improve their people skills in order to improve their leadership effectiveness.
