Future Leadership

Have you identified who will drive your business in the future?

Identifying future leadership roles is often overlooked

Do you have plans in place for the future leadership of your business? Identifying future leaders is important, and it involves speaking with your team to find out who’s keen to step up – and also who’s keen to wind
down.

We use the 360-degree tool to get feedback from peers, team members, and managers – and then look to plug those gaps based on feedback.

As well as identifying staff who are keen to progress, they need to have the right attitude: someone who’s coachable, open-minded, and has a positive, progressive mindset. It doesn’t matter if they don’t currently have any real leadership skills or experience, as that can be taught. But they do need to be teachable.

Once future leadership potential has been identified, it’s a matter of putting an employee training and development plan in place to get them to the next level, and beyond.

This will identify the particular training needs an individual has to learn good leadership skills.

What are good leadership skills?

Leadership quality goes beyond managerial skills. Yes,
people management skills are important, but a
manager also needs to be excellent at:

  • Strategic thinking
  • Creativity
  • Motivation, persuasion and influence
  • Communication
  • Positivity and inspiration
  • Change management.

A structured training plan is crucial to ensure all these learning objectives are met. ConsultingHQ can also provide tailor-made leadership coaching to ensure your future leaders have the right skills and attitude to take your business forwards.
