Most of the successful companies are having an engagement environment and the prime mover creating it is the LEADER.
Successful leaders are interested about what they can do for accomplishing the best results, they have the vision, they create performing teams by inspiring them, they create flexible structure ready to adapt to the reality.

Growing effective managers means helping them identify and prioritize their own development opportunities. By doing so, you help also your organization to better focus the management trainings and development investments, proactively uncover misaligned priorities between senior executives and front-line managers, and surface management issues that could lead to low employee productivity, morale, satisfaction and turnover.
How to do it?
Analyze the present performance, needs and development points, create a strategy, make an action plan, implement it.
We are using an Organizational Management Analysis (OMA) in order to have a base for further planning the coaching and mentoring strategy. We start with the CheckPoint 360° which is an assessment report part of the OMA. It is used primarily to evaluate the effectiveness of managers. This assessment combines feedback from direct reports, peers, supervisors, and even customers, with a personalized program for developing specific leadership skills based on that feedback. This process highlights a manager’s job performance in 8 skill clusters: leadership, communication, personal development, development of others, production, task management, relationships, and adaptability.
Advantages for the manager: see the difference between his own perception and the way he is seen by the others; take advantage from the information in order to make a development plan for his own career.
Advantages for supervisors: planning better trainings, understand motivation and needs, evaluating better the performances of the manager.
Advantages for peers: helping colleagues to develop, increasing motivation, helping for constructive strategies
Advantages for the enterprise: making a link between the performances of the company and the performance of the managers, create en engagement environment, bring the personal improvements into enterprise economic improvements.
The feedback is used to create a targeted development plan to address specific needs. Profiles CheckPoint 360° does this by identifying performance gaps, and by providing coaching guides and personal action plans for improving communication skills.
