• Agile Leader Assessment- Metaberatung

    Agile Leader – Leadership redefined.

    Which competencies matter for leaders navigating within disruptive environments? To be a successful leader in the digital business world, skills and modes of behaviour are required that are entirely different to everything you thought you knew about leadership. This was pointed out in the study “Redefining Leadership for a Digital Age” by metaBeratung/IMD among more than 1,000 executives. As a result, 4 competencies as well as 3 behaviours were specified to help leaders managing teams in disruptive environments successfully. The 4 competencies are humble, adaptive, visionary and engaged. The 3 behaviours that were identified are hyper awareness, informed decision-making and fast execution. The study showed that agile leaders who demonstrate these competencies and key behaviours clearly out-perform other leaders on measures such as work engagement and leadership effectiveness.

  • Emotional Intelligence of the Financial Sector- JCA Global

    This paper analyses data on individuals working in the financial sector who completed the Emotional Intelligence Profile (EIP), an online self-report questionnaire, from 2004-14.

    The results show the financial sector to be generally lower in EI than several other job sectors, in particular on interpersonal aspects of EI such as being more critical, less flexible and less people oriented. However, this has broadly improved over the last 10 years, and the financial sector has developed certain strengths such as being pragmatic and task focused, and leaders who demonstrate self belief, authenticity and consistency.

    This paper also shows that EI can be sustainably developed in this sector through appropriate training, which has significant impact on the emotional climate of the organisation in terms of employee performance, engagement and well-being.
