Lead Your Team Indicator

As you acquire new leadership skills during phase 3 of the Lead Your Team programme, it’s important to monitor how successfully you are putting them into action. The Lead Your Team Indicator is a new feedback mechanism that allows you to ‘take the temperature’ of your leadership with your team, via feedforward.

Some may find the idea of feedforwards unsettling, but the best leaders seek, listen to and act on their team’s feedback. The key is to create a safe and inclusive routine, based on trust and open dialogue. The Lead Your Team Indicator provides a safe way to ask feedback from your team members anonymously. The pre-set survey is compliant with data protection regulations, and should be followed by an informal and open dialogue on the outcomes. This is just for you and your team. You as a leader can decide which information you want to share with your team to help you build trust, understanding and grow together.

Aim

Development oriented, measuring the progress of leadership development within a team, on the basis of the leadership profile and our principles.
