Yes – it has been a while since I have posted anything. I know you have missed me, but there is a reason for the radio silence – I have been working on something.
What is Global Values? Well, I’m glad you asked!
It is a relatively new venture that I am a part of with some incredible leaders. Combined, we have well over 50 years of global leadership experience in a variety of industries (for profit, non-profit, manufacturing, finance, etc.). We have developed a learning program that incorporates training through facilitation, assessment and coaching.
The purpose of the core learning content is to equip and empower people to live, lead, serve and finish well – both inside and outside the workplace. Our approach is designed to be holistic in nature as it is more than just training for skills enhancement or providing reports and assessments. We are coming alongside individuals and helping them with self-awareness, how they lead and develop others, how they shape organizational culture, how they resolve conflict, etc. Our desired outcome is to help people:
Grow Deeper – Lead Better – Reach Higher
Leaders who are self-aware, intentional in their own development and leading with values, vision and strategy will be best positioned to effectively lead others and will be a catalyst for the organizations they serve.
Why is this so important today? Why does this have value for you and me? Maybe more appropriately put – what is the cost of poor leadership?
A lack of trust.
I believe there is a growing lack of trust in leadership to make morally appropriate decisions – whether in their work or personal lives. Barna Research Group has found that less than 15% of people trust teachers with a fraction of that number saying they trust government officials or executives of large corporations. A recent study by the Compliance and Ethics Leadership Council shows that, on average, only 20% of observed organizational issues make their way to those empowered to enact immediate change. 50% is unreported or lost while another 30% is siloed or trapped during escalation. Only 40% of misconduct is even reported by employees!
Conversely, equipped and empowered people (as an employee engagement measure) significantly outperform their peers in customer satisfaction (nearly 90% higher) and revenue growth (more than 4x greater).
Alright – now we are interested!
In my opinion, great leadership is needed now more than ever to be successful in all aspects of our lives. Global Values is here to help in that regard. I will be providing short blog posts to highlight key concepts from select training modules in our core learning program. If you are interested in learning more or would like to speak with one of our directors to start a learning community, please go to Global Values and we can discuss possible opportunities for engagement.
