The Integrated Leadership Development Model is the foundation for all leadership development programs and focuses on clarity, capability and contribution.
The Integrated Leadership Development Model firstly invites consideration of the ‘field of play’ or context in which effective leadership is required. This helps to gain clarity about the reality of the organisation, teams and their leaders, including strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats and an articulation of its short and long-term aspiration. Once clarity has been established, capability must be built to fit. Finally, contribution means the leaders and teams contribute in a meaningful and constructive way towards the strategy, the achievement of business results and with a focus on people.
Our five levels of leadership model creates a focus on the development needs of managers and leaders at various levels in the organisation and individual development pathways. It is also common for a program designed for an organisation’s needs will incorporate multiple levels, usually beginning with level 1 leadership and moving outwards to levels 2, 3, 4 and 5 over time.
Clarity of the context, strategy, aspiration, and leadership behaviours (current and future) which then allows purposeful capability development to take place.
- Understand the current situation including strengths, limitations and opportunities
- Identify the leadership capability that needs to be developed
- Decide how this will be measured
Capability building of leaders and their teams to achieve results (people, customer, financial), including the right mindsets and behaviours which then allows the contributions of others across the whole organisation.
- Recognise current and future leadership behaviours
- Build the leadership mindset to enable growth
- Develop leadership capability
Contribution from leaders to the new state through alignment, execution and renewal and role modelling the new way; build a healthy high performing culture; drive impact.
- Establish a plan of execution
- Build support for the leaders and their teams
- Measuring and managing performance
Clarity and capability without contribution leads to stifled performance and limited growth and creates frustration and disengagement over the medium to long term.
Capability and contribution without clarity leads to a hit and miss approach to performance and leads to burnout and disenchantment.
Clarity and contribution without capability creates inefficiencies in human resources and increased operational cost and decreased profitability.
Our DiagnosticConnect™ process helps teams and organisations identify which phase they presently are in and which phase they would like to be in. The table below maps the areas of clarity, capability and contribution to the three phases of realign, sustain success and accelerated growth. Sometimes the stages are planned, while at other times organisations find themselves there unexpectedly. This is particularly true of the realign stage where the organisation must gain better clarity (the ‘what’) on its future aspiration, the capability (the ‘vehicle’) required to get there and a pathway to get there (the ‘how’ to achieve it). Ultimately, the DiagnosticConnect™ framework helps organisations and its leaders understand where they are today and where they want to be in the future around the three stages of re-alignment, sustaining success and accelerated growth.
