How Skilled Leaders Get Exceptional Results

Sustained performance in any workplace environment requires deep engagement and a sense of ownership. Regardless of the size of your organization, it’s likely that those who set the pace are the superstars who do most of what they do best.  They are the individuals who default to their strengths, and refuse to engage in areas where they’re neither naturally gifted or lack talent.    

For years now, the Gallup Organization has led the way in demonstrating the correlation between strengths management and workplace excellence.  Their research shines a light on individuals who are able to affirmatively state that “at work, I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day” as that’s the trigger that is most likely to enhance engagement, wellbeing and a healthy workplace culture.  

It’s well documented that the majority of the active workforce are disengaged at work, and while that’s a real threat to productivity, I see it as a direct reflection of the leadership challenges that we face.  It takes a skillful leader to celebrate and adapt to the uniqueness of each individual, still as Mike Figliuolo points out in his latest book, Lead Inside the Box: How Smart Leaders Guide their Teams to Exceptional Results, identifying their strengths is just the beginning.  In my follow up conversation with Mike, we’ll discuss the eight personality types in addition to these questions:

  • What’s foremost on the minds of modern leaders?

  • How do skilled leaders identify and manage their priorities?

  • Explaining the four components of the leadership matrix?

  • What are the leadership challenges unique to each of the personality types?

  • What are exemplars looking for from their leaders?

  • What are the keys to a successful onboarding process?

  • How first time leaders hack leadership?
