Profile

Manager: Up to the level of your own incompetence?

Joachim Sauer, president of the Association of Human Resource Managers, sees the basic problem being that too often pure experts, on the basis of their specialist knowledge, are climbing higher and higher in the hierarchy. Until the level of their incompetence, the so-called Peter principle or as Sauer says. The good expert is not the same as the good manager.

And the pressure is getting bigger, not smaller. Because very crucial for the survival of Company are just the right people in top management. And this is exactly where management experts warn: “It is the wrong people at the top”.

Leadership Agility

We see that more differentiated. The expert in his field can be a very good manager if his way of problem solving fits the situation. Conversely, this means that the peak power is aware of their thinking and acting style and in the best case also has other options.

A previously unique thinking model focuses on the “agile” power of leaders: on leadership agility.

What is Leadership Agility?

The procedure has been designed and evaluated by the American consultant and author Bill Joiner together with a researcher.

For the first time we use this procedure exclusively in Germany and in the German-speaking area of ​​Europe.

Three levels of leadership agility

Leadership agility distinguishes three “maturity levels” (levels) of leadership agility. Each level of maturity integrates the skills of the previous one and combines them with further knowledge.

  1. The “Expert” leader is a professional who believes in the persuasiveness of the best solutions.
  2. The manager at the “Achiever” level is a strategist who believes in the motivational power of challenging goals and projects.
  3. The executive at the “Catalyst” level is a visionary and transformer who sees himself primarily as a developer and promoter of the skills of his employees and the entire organization.

When does which level fit?

The type of catalyst, which is equipped with the most comprehensive range of thought and action, employs the two different levels of maturity, depending on the situation:

There are situations in which the "expert" leadership behavior designed for problem solving is optimal or others in which the strategic and goal-oriented thinking of the "Achievers" advances projects.

How well is the company?

Whether digitization, the global intertwining of industries, or generation Y claims, companies are faced with ever more and ever greater challenges. But how well do they do it?

To find out, a company must answer the following question above all: How flexibly does the top management react without giving away the identity of the company? The “maturity level” of a company is shown by the awareness of its top executives!

The “game” fields of leadership

We have just learned about the 3 levels of leadership types. Which level the manager most corresponds to - whether “Expert”, “Achiever” or “Catalyst” can be seen in three large “game” fields or action areas of leadership:

  1. Changes in organizations
  2. Improve team performance
  3. Conduct important conversations

The consideration of these three fields of action is already part of the Leadership Agility 360 Grad Feedback (LA 360). The software-based LA 360 analysis and development process has been developed on the basis of the Leadership Agility Thinking Model.

Four types of agility in three fields of action

In the LA 360 analysis and development process, after an introductory talk with his advisor, the client seeks his feedback from senior management, employees and other stakeholders.

The feedback providers' assessments are based on a total of four “types of leadership agility” that are relevant when “exemplifying” the three major fields of action. It's the skills

  1. directional and contextual leadership,
  2. of creative and solution-oriented management,
  3. stakeholder-oriented management leadership; and
  4. the ability to self-leadership and development

The Action Plan

If these data have been evaluated by the LA 360 grad system, the client can draw the comparison between the external image of the others and its self-image. When interpreting the results, the client is accompanied by his / her adviser

In doing so, a well-founded action plan will be drawn up, which will determine the areas in which the client wants to develop further in the fields of action within the company. An even higher efficiency is achieved when LA360 is used for a complete management team.
