With all the schools, books, seminars, executive coaches, and human resource professionals focused on leadership, you might think great leadership is the norm in our society. Yet despite the focus on leadership and investment in leadership development, studies find that the quality of leadership continues to fall and set new lows. What is missing?
When employees are asked what quality their manager could possess that would enable them to perform their best, their number one answer is “the ability to coach.” Yet studies show that most managers possess little coaching ability and spend little time developing the skills of their people.
The SCOPE of Leadership™ is a framework of competencies that enable leaders to lead as coaches. It focuses leaders on developing their people and their people’s capabilities. It is a set of thirty-eight competencies in five categories (SELF, COMMUNICATIONS, OTHERS, PARTNERSHIPS, and EXECUTION) that are consistently found in great leaders and top performing organizations. The thirty-eight competencies of The SCOPE of Leadership move managers off the treadmill of busyness as usual and onto the path of working intentionally and delivering great results.
The competencies of the SCOPE of Leadership move managers from commanding, controlling, reporting, and doing to coaching, enabling, and inspiring. They enable a leadership ability and approach that leaders use to improve and leverage their number one asset – their people.
The SCOPE of Leadership framework uniquely develops both the mindset and ability leaders need in order to develop their people, foster teamwork, and produce results. Rather than a random set of competencies, it takes into consideration the dependencies and hierarchy of optimal leadership development.
Collectively, Alpine Link’s thirty-eight SCOPE of Leadership competencies enable leaders to:
- Become a respected leader whom people aspire to follow
- Leverage intra- and inter-organizational collaboration
