One of our clients recently mentioned their leadership team had raised the question: How do we really know we have the right leadership in place to drive the rapid growth we expect?

The variety of available statistics indicates this is a valid question that many organizations should be asking. The reality is only about 1/3 of individuals in leadership roles are trained and qualified to be in those roles, and employees are only about 60% engaged. The quality of a leader’s ability to create an environment for employees to perform at 100% has an immediate impact on your organization’s magnitude of growth. So, being able to determine if your leaders are in the 1/3 of trained and capable or 2/3 of leaders needing training and development will truly help your executive leadership understand what they can realistically expect.

The answer is to contact Profiles, Inc. to gain access to two powerful leadership tools: The Profiles Checkpoint 360 and the PXT Select. The Profiles Checkpoint 360 measures eight universal leadership competencies and the 18 associated skill sets driven by direct feedback from management, peers, and direct reports. This gives senior leadership a fantastic overview of talent gaps and focus areas for development to drive the rapid growth requirement.

The PXT Select is a leadership tool that helps leaders recruit top talent, optimize the onboarding process, is a coaching and development tool and an emotional IQ system all using the same Profiles language.

An easy way to understand how the Profiles Checkpoint 360 and the PXT Select can be used together is to visualize an iceberg. Generally, the smallest part of an iceberg is above the surface. The Checkpoint 360 will provide feedback from management, peers, and direct reports about what they can see and will be represented in the portion of the iceberg above the water. You also want to know what makes these leaders tick, which is reflected below the water in the iceberg image. The PXT Select really dives in to understanding the individual dynamics regarding why do leaders do things the way that they do?

So, back to the original question. Are your leaders capable and ready to drive rapid growth as we emerge from this pandemic? Call us at Profiles, Inc. to gain access to our powerful leadership tools, the Profiles Checkpoint 360 and PXT Select, and ensure they are. Your leadership team will thank you.
