(1) Leadership capacity in organizations can be measured, and
(2) Increasing leadership density will increase productivity.
What Do You Measure? High performance teams are measured with a scientifically validated instrument to ascertain the status of team effectiveness across 10 dimensions of organizational health, the “vital signs.” The “vital signs” include these 10 dimensions:
Optimal Power Equalization
Problem Solving Adequacy
Percentile profile charts are produced from the data to show team strengths and improvement priorities compared to a national database.
These data measure organizational health which is defined as "an organization's ability to function effectively, cope adequately, change appropriately, and grow within." Using the Data to Get Results: Just as a physician can determine a diagnosis from the pattern of physical health vital signs, these OH profile charts, and the patterns presented, are interpreted to diagnosis the key issues for the leader and the team.
Scientifically valid data establishes a belief in the need for change.
Leaders are given materials including models, concepts, and worksheets that teach leadership concepts.Leaders are challenged to think conceptually and identify key causal factors. From the data, leaders and their teams develop plans of action for improvement.
Effectiveness of action plan implementation is determined through annual measurements.
Thus the leaders learn leadership by implementing actions and measuring the results.
Our OH data correlates strongly with productivity.
If you love data, and love developing people, you will love this process!
