The looming question in leadership development, is “can leaders be developed”? In the ever changing and chaotic world of organizations today, the question is of paramount concern, as leadership development programs attempt to identify and replicate those behaviors that lead to increased performance and results.
Corporations recognize the value of leadership development programs and are tying these programs to strategic objectives. Leadership must be distributed throughout the organization in order to meet the competing demands of a global economy which requires leadership development occur at every level. Additionally, leadership development efforts must be consistent, provide for allocation of resources both in terms of time and money, and must be designed to meet the adaptations of the ever changing organizational life.
The Imago Performance philosophy is that leaders develop both as individuals and in competencies of leadership. Our goal for developing leaders is to expand their capacity for both intrapersonal and interpersonal competence while also focusing on the facilitation of work requirements, the management of self with respect to change, chaos, and other events, and the strengthening of social capabilities. Although, there are many models and unlimited perspectives on competencies, the Imago Performance model, The Leadership Path™ focuses on the expansion of the leader’s strengths while managing gaps and challenges.
