The Leadership Circle Profile

The Leadership Cirlce accelerates leadership developmnet beyond traditional competency-based approaches. When it comes to developing leaders, training to competencies alone does not work very well. For more rapid and lasting results, it is crucial that organizations help leaders gain deeper insight into their behavior and what is driving it. The Leadership Circle Profile™ is the only 360 degree competency assessment that simultaneously provides focused competency feedback while revealing the underlying assumptions that are causing a leader’s pattern of strengths and limitations. The Leadership Circle Profile helps leaders understand the relationship between how they habitually think and how they behave—and how all this impacts their current level of leadership effectiveness. Once this awareness is established, leadership development can proceed. Without it, change rarely happens.

Emotional Intelligence

We probably all know people, either at work or in our personal lives, who are really good listeners. No matter what kind of situation we're in, they always seem to know just what to say – and how to say it – so that we're not offended or upset. They're caring and considerate, and even if we don't find a solution to our problem, we usually leave feeling more hopeful and optimistic.

We probably also know people who are masters at managing their emotions. They don't get angry in stressful situations. Instead, they have the ability to look at a problem and calmly find a solution. They're excellent decision makers, and they know when to trust their intuition. Regardless of their strengths, however, they're usually willing to look at themselves honestly. They take criticism well, and they know when to use it to improve their performance.

People like this have a high degree of emotional intelligence, or EI. They know themselves very well, and they're also able to sense the emotional needs of others.

Emotional Intlligence involves a set of skills that define how effectively we perceive, understand, reason with and manage our own and others feelings.

Would you like to be more like this? Contact us to help you understand and develop your Emotional Intelligence using the GENOS EI Tool.

 GEMMA  Motivating and Engaging Your Team


Most leaders know that at the heart of every productive and successful business lies a thriving
organizational culture - an environment where hard working people collaborate intensely and passionately to produce great results. Because this culture is difficult to achieve and replicate, it’s also seen as a critical lever of sustainable competitive advantage. Most leaders recognize “keeping people engaged, motivated and committed” as a critical part of their function. However, most leaders will also tell you that motivating employees and keeping them engaged isn’t so easy a task. Many factors influence an individual’s motivation ranging from day-to-day tasks, right through to the working styles of colleagues. What is motivating for one can be de-motivating for others.
This program equips leaders with:
๏ an in-depth understanding of employee engagement and why it’s important to an organization’s performance,
๏ insight into how engaged they are personally, and what they can do to enhance their own engagement
๏ a tool kit, process, and techniques for facilitating effective individual engagement reviews with staff.
