Your leaders have a profound impact on your company's culture, performance and resilience.
And yet, it's still the norm for organizations to use a subjective and often biased approach to selecting and developing them.
Gallup's Leadership Practice equips you to use a scientific approach -- based on more than 50 years of studying leadership behavior -- to put leaders in place who positively influence constituencies and make decisions that sustain your company through market disruptions.Contact Us to learn more about identifying and developing talented leaders
When leaders thrive, so do organizations.
4x as likely When employees strongly agree that they trust the leadership of their organization, they are 4x as likely to be engaged.
7.5x as likelyEmployees who strongly agree that leaders help them see how changes made today will affect their organization in the future are 7.5x as likely to feel connected to their company culture.
73% less likelyWhen employees strongly agree that the leadership of their organization communicates effectively with the rest of the organization, they are 73% less likely to feel burned out at work.
Lead successfully, even in the face of change.
Even the best leadership tactics fail when unexpected changes happen.
But we've identified more than tactics for leaders to use. Gallup understands the talent, experiences and development that leaders need to be effective and lead your organization through market disruptions now and in the future.
Leadership strength is both innate and developed. So, our approach is multifaceted, combining an analysis of your current leadership bench, the development of your current leaders accordingly, and the pinpointing of future talent needs to create a sustainable future for your organization.
Gallup's Leadership Development Framework
Our leadership framework is built around a leadership equation that helps your organization to achieve leadership strength through building a pipeline of top talent, identifying key experiences and providing focused development.
Developing leaders to achieve high performance starts with an understanding of that leader's natural talent. Talent provides a starting point and range for the ways in which a leader is likely to make the most significant contribution. Gallup offers two distinct types of assessments to gain an individualized perspective on a leader's most natural ways of thinking, feeling and behaving.
CliftonStrengths When developing existing leaders, CliftonStrengths provides an individualized perspective along with a universal language by which leaders and teams can be understood.
Leadership Talent Assessments For leaders new to leadership or to the organization, Gallup offers talent assessments that evaluate an individual's natural responses to role-relevant demands. These scientifically validated assessments are aligned to four key roles -- operational, people, senior and executive leadership -- and are based on decades of research on top leaders across the globe. Selecting leadership with the natural capacity for excellence serves as an accelerating foundation for further development.
Key experiences shape how individuals see the world, what they know, what they do and how they feel about particular events that occur around them.
These experiences provide opportunities for leaders to expand and apply their talent, impacting how they approach new challenges and opportunities and enabling them to make a greater professional contribution.
Identifying the experiences that matter most for success in your organization provides a framework to give targeted, on-the-job development opportunities that can lead to better overall human capital performance.
With a focus on strengthening leadership behaviors that result in excellence, we use cutting-edge research on business issues to create relevant, timely learning for leaders.
We help leaders understand their unique leadership strengths, build relationships across their organization and within their individual teams, and foster enterprise-wide growth through a strong vision, strategy and culture.
Gallup's suite of development offerings includes 360 feedback, leadership competencies, executive coaching, leadership workshops, and a host of experiential and classroom-based development programs.
Bringing all three ingredients together -- natural talent, key experiences and focused development -- enables you to strengthen your current leadership bench and build your future pipeline.
Investing in this process enables your organization to build leadership capability and continuity in a sustainable manner.
Leadership strength helps our clients:
- expand their leadership pipeline
