Getting the Most Out of Performance Assessments
In almost every industry today, having strong leadership skills is becoming equally, if not more vital to success than being technically capable alone. Many companies are choosing to focus on developing these skills in their teams to help them become stronger leaders. Determining the needs of your team and how to further their skills in those areas can see a significant increase in performance, growth, and success.
The best tools for leadership development and assessment are those that reveal valuable insights into the strengths of your leadership team. The HBDI assessment helps individuals gain a deeper understanding of their own thought processes and how to work effectively with others who think differently. Understanding each person’s unique thinking style preferences, enables them to become better communicators and problem solvers.
Understanding key areas of strength and development opportunities within teams helps to form a clear basis from which to make improvements. High performing teams that receive development training are more likely to overcome challenges successfully. Their commitment to reaching their goals enables them to adapt quickly when faced with unexpected difficulties. The ability to adapt and creatively problem solve is integral to maintaining consistently strong performance.
One of the hallmarks of successful leadership teams is their ability to retain focus on the greater business objectives, while When implemented skillfully, leadership assessment tools can expand your emotional intelligence and strengthen personal relationships within teams. This enhances the organisational culture, making it a healthier, more positive environment. The benefit of engaging with leadership assessment and profiling tools for teams is that each individual discovers where their greatest strengths and passions lay. When each individual is playing to their strengths, the effectiveness of the entire team increases, often resulting in higher employee engagement and productivity.
The most successful leadership training programs address the specific challenges faced within each team or organisation. This is why assessment and profiling tools are so important. Not only do they help us to understand where there may be gaps, but they can also help to identify a person’s untapped potential within their team. Keeping a strong performer in a role they have outgrown, limits the impact their contributions could be having on the overall success and growth of the business. Selecting people with both the skills and passion to succeed is key to creating and sustaining high performance teams.
