Leader Engagement and Development System – LEADS TM

Leader engagement is one of the most important yet often overlooked opportunities to increase employee engagement in any organization.

Through years of research we identified a proven method to measure how well individual leaders engage their employees and the steps to take to improve their engagement skills.  Developed and perfected with tens of thousands of leaders LEADS has been proven to increase leaders’ abilities to engage and retain their team members.  This simple but powerful process will increase leadership effectiveness and team performance.

Highly engaged employees improve operational metrics:

Investing in Leader Engagement

Investing in leadership is the surest, quickest, and most complete business strategy on which an organization can focus.  Leaders are the one driver that can change the quickest in terms of their influence on engagement. From a leadership perspective, it’s all about awareness of the engagement issue and the leader’s behavior in relation to the initiative. Hopefully no leaders come to work and say things like, “How do I break trust today?” or “How do I let my team down today?” And yet too many leaders are unaware of the little things they do that have that same impact.

The Impact of Leader Engagement

Since a leader has the most interaction, observations, and dialogue with each employee, this makes them the best person to talk about the employee’s career and coaching. Our research shows that more leaders could be having these conversations.

We see two reasons leaders hesitate to have these conversations:

They aren’t aware it’s part of their job. Their leader has never had this conversation with them so there is no example to follow.

They don’t want to make a mistake. They don’t want to overpromise to a team member that a promotion or a raise is in their future. Nor do they want to promise training/development or anything they would value from a career standpoint because the leader isn’t sure whether promising such things is feasible, appropriate, or even within their authority.

The LEADS Process

Clear, behaviorally-based individual leader and group reports. Results are presented in an easy to understand format using key metrics and guided action planning steps allowing each leader to quickly see areas of strength as well as areas for development. Analyze results by any attributes from your Human Resources Information system (HRIS) or operational performance system.

The guide helps leaders prepare effectively for discussions with their teams about the survey results. Leaders can create a positive experience for their team,inspiring them to be supportive and engaged in the improvement process.

Prepopulated results from the questionnaire allows easy goal setting for individual leaders. Versatile action planning options include leveraging strengths, developing opportunity areas, inclusion of comments plus guides for developing an approach and setting SMARTER goals. Participation reports track action plan progress at all steps which drives accountability.
