Finding the right leader to accelerate your organization
To succeed in today’s competitive environment, organizations need to gain momentum and change quickly while embracing disruption. The single biggest driver of acceleration is leadership.
Top performing leaders are four times more productive than their peers. They are agile. They use a unifying purpose to engage their people more deeply. They are champions of speed to value.
To find the right leader for the right role, you need to assess these qualities.
A Powerful, Data-Driven Assessment Framework
Leveraging four decades of data and behavioral research, the Infinity Framework is a methodology that consistently and holistically measures a candidate’s true leadership promise.
By analyzing four distinct yet interrelated aspects, the Infinity Framework assesses pivotal experiences and leadership capabilities as well as culture fit and future potential. It streamlines the assessment process by creating a standardized approach that illuminates a more complete picture of each candidate. Highly visual, tailored reports that include each of the four aspects make evaluation and comparison easy.
The Driving Factors of Accelerating Leaders
Winning leaders possess four key drivers that allow them to outpace the competition: Mobilize, Execute, Transform and Agility (META). These leaders put customers first, strengthen their core, lead innovation and use a unifying purpose to engage their people. The Infinity Framework incorporates this unique perspective to gauge a candidate’s present and future potential.
With the right tools to analyze data and the ability to weigh the importance of each aspect against the demands of the organization, the framework provides meaningful insight into a candidate’s current and future potential.
A Focus on Creating a Thriving Culture
An organization’s culture plays a significant role in its ability to perform. How a leader might engage or shift a culture is an important consideration in selecting a leader for a role. Often it comes down to how well a leader’s style will mesh with an organization’s team and culture.
Finding a leader whose values align with your organization starts by creating cultural descriptors, drivers or values to assess. This criteria reflects the current culture as well as where it needs to shift to meet the future direction of the organization.
