The Top Skills for High Performing Leaders Whitepaper Download.

When it comes to the top skills for high performing leaders, our clients tell us important leadership gaps exist in their organizations.  They also tell us that as an organization they feel unprepared to adequately meet current and future business needs with their current talent pipeline. Even though the productivity gains and positive cultural implications of internal promotions have been well documented, too many organizations lack a defined leadership pipeline and succession plan for critical roles.

While all businesses are unique, leadership competencies can be used to effectively select, develop and promote high performing leaders.  Over the years, our clients have identified forty-two leadership competencies that play a role in being an effective and high performing leader depending upon your specific strategy, culture and situation. A long list to be sure.

While we believe the most effective leadership development programs take an action-learning approach to get real work done and that leadership is highly contextual and situational to each company’s unique strategy and culture, these seven leadership competencies continue to rise to the top regardless of client or industry.  How do your leaders stack up?
