To get to the next level of effectiveness, you must upgrade your internal operating system.

Effective leadership is about leading people, pure and simple. How you get results is as important as the results themselves.

The Leadership Circle Profile™ (TLCP) provides an unparalleled development pathway (operating system upgrade!) to leadership that correlates demonstrably to business performance. The TLCP is a global tool with a clear ROI for global business.

Adoption of a development agenda is a business imperative. A White Paper first published in 2006 by Bob Anderson, Founder of The Leadership Circle™, shows that the TLCP dimensions are highly correlated to measures of Leadership Effectiveness. It also shows strong and significant correlations to a measure of business performance. The White Paper presents powerful evidence showing that changes in leadership behavior, as measured by The Leadership Circle Profile, are very likely to translate into increased leadership effectiveness and, thereby, bottom-line business performance.

The TLCP is unique and compelling in how it connects leadership competencies with underlying motivations and habits of thought. Individual results reveal relationships between patterns of action and the internal assumptions that drive behavior. It allows an individual to delve deeply into what matters.

With the TLCP you build reflective leadership and competency-based leadership. Conscious leadership is about being aware and awake…and it’s about conscious practice.

Taking a developmental lens to leadership, you remove bottlenecks and system constriction. You can be more adaptive addressing ever more complex issues.

What are the costs of ineffective leadership and collaboration to your discretionary energy? Where do you turn when strengths becomes liabilities? Rather than urge highly creative and talented people to pretzel themselves into conforming to behavioral or context-specific expectations, TLCP feedback provides new options for authentic growth. Leaders gain current, candid, growth-oriented input for making meaningful choices to improve.

In my experience (certified TLC practitioner since 2003), the TLCP is the most comprehensive and sophisticated leadership assessment system available.

Grow Your Leadership Culture

What’s essential for a more effective leadership culture where you are?

As you plan for robust business and organizational culture growth, deliberately growing your leadership culture is one of your most valuable long-term plays. Cultivating leadership competencies throughout your organization is the real engine for healthy, adaptive growth while promoting unique qualities that make your organizational culture special.

As with the TLCP, The Leadership Circle Culture Survey (TLC-CS) focuses on leadership competencies that are demonstrably correlated to business performance measures. Starting, for example, with a key group or team, quickly get a vivid, insightful and actionable picture of what's true in your leadership culture.

Each person evaluates the group/team for leadership competencies they
  • actually experience
  • want to experience.

You gain clarity together about gaps between 1) what group members say they actually experience together and 2) what group members say they want to experience together. New conversations become possible with a common framework and language for understanding what's happening, what's possible (for better and worse), and how it matters. Those are conversations for co-creating what's next. You build curiosity, commitment and competency to close the gaps for good purpose.

Used as a stand-alone assessment, the TLC-CS powerfully focuses a group on strengths and areas of necessary improvement. Your group generates a new story about what matters and why. Everyone becomes accountable for the group result.

The TLC-CS is also a powerful tool when integrated with individual leadership development coaching. Leaders typically want to know:
  • “What's my role in this?"
  • "How can I be better at this?"
  • "How can I help myself and others be more at our best?"

Linking individual leadership development to culture growth, strategic planning and engagement initiatives consistently produces more coherent, durable results with multiplier benefits. I recommend the TLC-CS as a core element for “Growth by Design.”

Imagine what your leadership culture could co-create!

Much of leadership development has been too superficial. Most organizational change efforts fail, not because they are ill conceived, but because at the center of those efforts is an implicit and unrecognized requirement that people behave in ways associated with higher levels of consciousness. This is a much bigger demand than we ever understood….We now recognize that leadership is a process of transformation whereby a leader is encouraged to make a profound shift—to gain a deeper understanding of themselves, the world, and their relationship to others. This deeper, longer term work is what our Leadership Circle Profile brings to the table, what The Leadership Circle stands for, and this is the kind of work we invite organizations to experience.
Bob Anderson, founder of The Leadership Circle
At this time in organizational history we are breaking from traditional paternal bureaucratic forms of organizations to high involvement, empowered partnership and collaborating learning organizations. Paternal bureaucracies did not need empowered people—except near the top. The new organization, however, will only take hold when people at every level adopt an empowered stance toward their life, work and leadership.

Collaborative relationships are valuable to an organization not only because they produce better processes and better results, but also because they increase the amount of discretionary emotional energy that employees will devote to the organizational effort. Discretionary emotional energy is a term … to describe the passion, excitement, enthusiasm, and dedication that individuals choose to give freely to those causes, projects, relationships, and organizations in which they truly believe. Discretionary emotional energy cannot be mandated, and attempts to do so will inevitably lead to either outright rebellion or passive-aggressive undermining behavior. It is personal buy-in that can’t be bought.
