Shakeable: Leaders who are shakeable have the highest risk of bullying, harassment, and stress claims. They feel dis-empowered and dis-engaged. They react to challenge and change. They need to focus on care because they are in danger of burnout or leaving the organisation.
Stressed: If leaders are feeling stressed their productivity and engagement is reduced. According to Dr. Bruce Perry, connection is the best buffer to stress. It’s important they connect with themselves, their purpose, their teams, and their organisation.
Stable: Leaders at the stable level have good days and bad days. Their leadership is inconsistent. Their confidence is on rocky ground. It’s important they build up their confidence to avoid slipping down into the stressed or shakeable level.
Strong: When leaders are strong, their next challenge is increasing their courage to have the often-difficult conversations that need to be had, and back themselves as they make courageous leadership decisions. They courageously face challenge and change head on.
Unshakeable: Unshakeable leaders have the lowest risk of bullying, harassment, and stress claims. They feel empowered and engaged. They have choice in how they respond to challenge and change. They are in the best position to support and develop their teams.
Mindset: Concentrates on the leaders developing useful beliefs, thinking styles, and increasing flexibility in their thinking. The benefit will be leaders who are more open to listening to others, more agile in their approach, and more self-aware.
Power: Focuses on the leaders’ power to choose and be responsible and accountable for their beliefs, emotions, actions, and words. This means they are more likely to provide useful feedback and hold others accountable. They will have the courageous conversations that many leaders avoid.
Esteem: Explores how the leaders choose to value themselves and consider themselves as worthy. They learn to separate their self-worth from their performance as leaders. This means they are better equipped to receive feedback and make the changes suggested to them to take their leadership skills to the next level.
