Workshop Core: Leadership Competencies
The core of this workshop is our Six Natural Levels of Leadership Competencies, a state of the art 360° Assessment using the Systems Approach found nowhere else in the literature. It is a simple, yet profound framework as the natural way the world works. Leadership roles in organizations are typically structured so these competency assessments can be utilized for:

  1. first time supervisors
  2. middle managers
  3. and all the way up the hierarchy
  4. to CEOs

Its uniqueness and comprehensiveness is such that it can be used for both:

  1. Tailored Leadership “job competency” requirements
  2. Current “job performance” of the leader vs. these tailored job competencies above
