Below you see the partial outcome of a Leadership 360 we did for the CEO of a Multi National Organization with more than 25.000 employees worldwide.

As you may or may not know, research shows that servant leadership is a great leadership style to use in situations that require change...

Servant Leadership theory recognizes 4 Servant Competencies and 4 Leadership Competencies...

And this CEO scored quite high on most of these 8 competencies, all looked right...

...right?...

Not really...

...because we discovered that it is possible for leaders to do all the right things...

..while at the same time do a number of things that definitely do NOT help.

As if you go full throttle while simultaneously pulling the handbrake...

Facing The Challenge did a deep dive into the actual practice of servant leadership with another client, who became manager of the year...

What we found is that each Servant Leadership competency has a shadow competency that works as a counter acting force...

So here is the full outcome of the earlier CEO...

Even though this leader did many things right, and was very successful, he was at the same time sabotaging his own success...

Our research showed that the biggest jump forward in the development of leaders is if they manage to stop their counteracting behaviors.

The Servant Leadership 260 is available for you to quickly gain insight in how your are perceived as a leader in your organization.

Ofcourse that is only the start...

Build Strong Teams Through Focused MBTI Teambuilding Programs

Our tool of choice to build strong teams is MBTI, the famous Myers Briggs Type Indicator.

MBTI continues to be the most widely used personality typing model worldwide.

This instrument is backed by solid psychometric validation, which explains why people recognize themselves in the outcomes.

MBTI can be used to sculpt an organization's culture.

MBTI gives insight in the starting engines of human behaviour.

MBTI raises people's self awareness, with the goal of improved self management.

Through our Focused MBTI Teambuilding Programs people discover their strengths & their weaknesses, both individually and as a team...

These Focused Programs Challenge People Forward in finding ways to maximize fun, learning, teamwork and results.

Teams that go through these programs learn to really play ball and utilize all available talents in ways not experienced before.

The gloves come off and people learn to tell it as they see it...

...without filter...

...yet also without doing damage..

...simply because teams we train learn that anything that happens can be taken professionally...

...that taking things professionally is the choice that gets results...

...the choice that leads to increased emotional freedom & personal growth.

...the choice that turns hurt and anger into understanding, energy forward & much better teamwork.

Teams like that are a dream come true for successful leaders...

...and a nightmare for leaders that still use old school management techniques that already stopped working last century.

Teams like that require your best and give their best.

Facing The Challenge Developed A Special MBTI Team Chart

Below you see the chart of the highest leadership team of a Dutch client, part of a Multinational BPO organization with close to 30.000 employees worldwide.

The Dutch organization went from worst performing country to number 1.

They went from 'last chance or liquidation' to best bottom line performance.

From people running away, to people wanting to work there.

From losing clients, to winning major global brands as clients AND performing first in class for some of them.

From 500 fte's to 1400 fte's in 4 short years.

The MBTI Team Chart shows 9 people with different temperaments.

The reason they were so successful is because they learned to maximally utilize their differences by each fully playing their part.

The leader of this MT had a strong ESTP personality.

He knew where he wanted to go, and he made sure he strengthened the people around him.

His ESTP dynamic made him focus on WHEN he wanted things to be delivered & done.

The overall personality of this team was ENTP, which meant they knew their WHY.

The individual ENTP personalities in his team added a strong WHY dynamic...

...leading to energetic discussions and merciless yet graceful verbal duelling, all focused on the WHY of doing what is best for the client, employees and the bottom line.

The ESTJ personalities provided the needed focus on WHAT and HOW things were to be executed.

And the ENFP component guarded that in all the speed and dynamic of focusing on WHY, WHAT, HOW and WHEN, people were not forgotten...

ENFP's have a natural feeling of WHO to do things for and with.

Successful teamwork requires everyone to play their A-game, without holding back.

Success comes when people each play their part in full and together focus on winning hearts of all parties involved, both inside and outside the organization.

The next group to focus on was the total layer of leadership present in the organization.

The overall MBTI chart of the 88 leaders in this organization shows lots of potential for success, but also for disaster.

With so much diversity in temperaments in leadership personalities from top to bottom, you better have a working plan in place to pull it all together.

Because only a plan that works will make sure your leaders develop in the way that is needed to bring the A-game of your whole organization to your market.

OK, so you built a strong team around you that can tackle anything the world throws at you...

...now how do you speed up the learning & development of leaders throughout your whole organization?...

...and how do you reach YOUR next level of excellence?

Let me tell you about a proven process of coaching that guarantees results...

...for you and the other leaders in your organization.

Facing The Challenge developed an extended Servant Leadership 360 Scan...

...that gives immediate insight into where you stand as a leader today.

We chose the Servant Leadership Style, because research shows this is the number one leadership style to lead people through change.

And we went the 360 feedback route because how you are perceived by the people around you is what counts.

No one is interested in your knowledge about the servant leadership style, or any other style for that matter...

Your Know How is far less important than your Show How.

Because your actions speak louder than words.

And your actions either resonate with people...

...or alienate them.

That is why we ask the stakeholders around you to help you forward by telling you how they experience you today.

Servant Leadership identifies 8 specific behaviors, which can be measured.

And that is exactly what we did.

We measured it in detail with this client of ours....

...who became Manager of the Year and attributed his success in part to his Servant Leadership Style.

So we did a behavioral deep dive on what exactly made his leadership successful...

...to see if his leadership could be replicated and used to train others.

What we found shocked us at first...

...let me explain...

Here you see the Servant Leadership outcome of the CEO of a large Multi National Organization, measured with the 8 styles that common servant leadership theory identifies...

Pretty good right?...

Not really...

...because we discovered that it is possible for leaders to do all the right things...

..while at the same time do a number of things that definitely do NOT help.

As if you go full throttle while simultaneously pulling the handbrake...

During our deep dive into the actual practice of servant leadership with the Manager of the Year...

...we found that each Servant Leadership competency has a shadow competency that works as a counteracting force...

We found that the biggest jump forward for leaders is to STOP with these counteracting behaviors.

In order to do that, you must know which & how much of those counteracting behaviors you show today...

That is why we designed a whole new Servant Leadership 360 Scan that measures the whole picture.

So here is the full outcome of the earlier mentioned CEO...

Even though this leader did many things right, and was very successful, he was at the same time sabotaging his own success...

The quick win and easy jump forward in your development as a leader is if you manage to stop these counteracting behaviors. This is the low hanging fruit that generates goodwill and momentum for change.

The Servant Leadership 360 Scan is now available for you to quickly gain insight into how you are perceived today as a leader in your organization.

Ofcourse that is only the start...

Because once you know where you stand today we will challenge you to develop a stronger & fully authentic leadership profile, that lies close to who you are, but now without the behaviors that unknowingly sabotage your effectiveness.

Your stronger & fully authentic leadership profile becomes the target you go for.

And then we use the World Renowned & Proven Stakeholder Centered Executive Coaching Process to make sure you get measurable and guaranteed results in reaching your target as quickly as possible.

So if you want any of the following...
