What can come in the way of a leader giving her or his best and performing to potential or gearing up to be considered for succession?
A lot actually. A rapidly changing environment, new business models, rapid change in scale and complexity, the demand for new skills and competencies, changing dynamics with key stakeholders, stress, momentary loss of confidence, blind spots about certain aspects of style, interpersonal orientations and other pre-existing conditions that may magnify and manifest under stress and widening role demands.
CFI has been working with several clients to support their leaders to reinvent themselves to perform to their full potential in the roles they are playing or gearing up to take on larger roles or qualify for succession from within. If you recognise that things are changing rapidly and your leaders could benefit from support to continue to give their best, talk to us.
