Real Leadership

Self Awareness and Effective Leadership Skills Go Hand in Hand

This focusses on creating self-awareness in leaders at all levels and helping leaders to feel safe about and make use of feedback. Leadership skills are then effectively increased.  The core assumption here is that a leader who lacks self-awareness has a much-reduced ability to positively influence both internal and external relationships. These are the final tests of quality leadership and, in fact, are the core accountability of leadership.

Too many people have taken up senior leadership positions with little if any understanding of the impact they have on the climate of the business or organisation they lead.

Dattner Grant holds that it is essential that, at all levels, leaders be given feedback that enhances their understanding of themselves.
There is a range of diagnostic tools Dattner Grant uses to help with this, from world-acclaimed diagnostics such as MSCEITTM (Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test) to the HBDI (Herrmann Brain Dominance Indicator). However, many can access these instruments.

What makes Dattner Grant unique is that  senior leaders within Dattner Grant, who themselves have gone through the journey, facilitate other leaders and share their knowledge on what make effective leadership skills. These instruments are not used simply to expand an individual's self-awareness. They are significantly linked to the quality and insight they develop around managing both internal and external relationships. When a credible leader guides discussions at this level, it makes a measurable difference to learning outcomes.
