Strategies to support your organization’s leaders

There are several practical and cost-effective steps that organizations can take to support members of their leadership team.

  • Ensure that the leaders in the organization have strong and independent advisers both inside and outside of the organization who will not hesitate to disagree or discuss countervailing points of view. This will help ensure that leaders stay open and receptive to new information.

  • Make leaders aware of both their strengths and their weaknesses. By setting up a system that formally provides performance feedback from a variety of perspectives

  • Use coaching to help minimize potentially problematic leadership behaviors. Leaders can be taught how to recognize the types of situations that exacerbate certain negative behaviors and what to do in order to minimize the effects of such situations.
