Transforming Culture with Agile Leadership
Increase Leadership Agility
Agile Leaders Create Agile Workplaces
Creating an agile workplace can only be done by flexible leaders, Flexible leaders are not only open-minded, and they are also willing to change their minds when faced with new evidence.
Inflexible leaders are unyielding - they are unwilling to or refuse to change their views or to agree with something that conflicts with their beliefs and if allowed, will keep your organization stuck in the past.
What is Interpersonal Flexibility?
It is the ability to see others' needs as at least as important as your own.
People who are low on flexibility are typically not interested in the needs of others. They are only focused on what they want to get out of a situation or relationship. As a result, others find it difficult to trust an inflexible leader, someone who is not interested in others' needs and is only interested in what they can get out of a relationship.
The Flexibility and Trust Survey is a Wake-up Call for Inflexible Leaders
Inflexible leaders think they are trustworthy because they are consistent, they always do things the same way and people are clear about their views and the way they want things done. However, because they are focused on their own agenda and their own needs, they don't realize people have difficulty trusting them. This survey highlights the leaders' ability to build trust, be flexible and focus on mutual needs.
Flexible people are more adaptable to change and have a greater ability to gain endorsement for their initiatives, projects and proposals. The Flexibility and Trust Survey explores three subscales of flexibility and provides measurement across a range of capabilities, including:
Ability to adapt quickly to change
Acceptance of differences in others
Willingness to adapt behavior to build trust with other people.
The assessment gives leaders immediate feedback from team members about just how flexible they are and how effective they are at building trust. It provides a detailed starting point that creates self-awareness and understanding, enabling individuals to pinpoint and improve their interpersonal skills, resulting in more effective workplace relationships.
