Developing effective, sustainable leadership requires both head
People have always studied leadership, and sought to understand how to become a better leader. The Emotional Intelligence (EI) revolution over the past 25 years, combined with recent neuroscience studies of the brain, have proven that effective leadership requires mature use of both intellect and emotions.
A study by Reuven Bar-On estimated that about 67% of leadership performance is dependent upon a person’s EI.
So a focus on EI matters for leadership development, but it certainly isn’t the whole story. The number of competencies that an individual needs to master on the way from individual contributor to executive leader is significant, and requires intentional development through practice.
While the development plan for each individual is unique, using an established framework brings consistency and structure to the process. That’s why JWJ Consulting has established a strategic partnership with Diane Foster & Associates to utilize the Skill Kit for Leaders web-based competency learning system for leadership development.
The Skill Kit for Leaders is based upon 42 leadership competencies taken from the Harvard Leadership Studies, and can be customized to your existing competency model. Multi-media, interactive learning modules contain a wealth of research-based learning experiences and activities designed to deliver skill development on the spot when managers need it most.
The Skill Kit for Leaders offers a reasonably-priced program which can function as a stand-alone tool or augment your existing talent development programs.
