Effective leaders deliver results that matter. They bring organizations to the future. Unfortunately, many organizations fail to transform their high potential people into leaders.
If you are losing your leaders because you failed to invest in people, the best time to act is now.
Investments in people, when done right, produces results that really matter: high profit growth, better employee engagement, lower employee turnover, deeper pipeline of talent, improved productivity, delighted customers, and more sustainable businesses.
Your ability to answer these five critical questions that employees are asking of their organizations will help you deliver results that matter.
Challenged organizations have CEOs and senior leaders who do not undestand the pulse of their organizations. This may result in the organization’s inability to invest in the right areas and in the right people.
It is important that the CEOs, senior leaders, managers, and employees have aligned views on what is really needed in the organization to grow. They fully understand the direction of the organization and have positive views on the ability of their leaders to get things done.
Challenged organizations have CEOs who, in times of economic crises, stop investing in people until the “good times” come. Employees in challenged organizations feel neglected and typically do not have the confidence about the future of their organization. Leaving the organization is always an open option.
Effective CEOs demonstrate their commitments to employees during booming economic times. During difficult economic crises, they continously invest time and resources to employees and consistently communicate that they are the engine of future growth. They have committed employees because they do not stop fulfilling their commitments to employees.
In challenged organizations, employees feel that their CEOs and managers do not really care. They do not get the resources and support they need.
On the contrary, effective CEOs and managers find the time to drive improved performance – and they are more effective in creating performance-driven culture. They provide daily performance feedback and regular coaching. Also, they possess significantly higher core managerial skills when addressing poor performance. They set stretch goals and create compelling rewards program.
In challenged organizations, human resource professionals spend more time accomplishing government requirements.
In high performing organizations, human resources are more active in driving and designing implementation of people development programs. They function as business accelerators . They do not just send employees to classroom training, they also spend time gathering business needs and in aligning programs to business strategy. They enable and equip employees.
In challenged organizations, employees avoid accountability. They tend to play safe, do not take risks, and blame others. They do not feel trusted.
In champion organizations, driving accountability and trust represents a core part of their cultures and is viewed as critical to executing their business strategies. They include employees in decision-making process.
First who, then what.
You cannot grow your organization to greatness with poor leadership development. Leadership development is not just something that’s nice to have — or something that you must do because business is doing great.
Leadership development is essential to the success of your organization at all times.
Enabled and equipped leaders influence employees to do their best work everytime. They model the way. They bring people together to a common vision. They initiate, lead, and sustain change effectively. They inspire and encourage. They adapt to the demands of the future.
Your company’s leaders directly impact your top line and your bottom line, for better or for worse.
Unfortunately, in many organizations we can find leaders who are left on their own. They are expected to perform though they don’t get the support necessary for them to deliver the job.
With poor leadership development, they failed to deliver results that really matter.
With poor leadership development, they fail to transform high potential employees into leaders.
Poor leadership development has serious consequences. Here are three of the most common.
Plants follows the light. At the same manner, employees expect to find opportunities inside your organization. If there is none, they’ll most likely find opportunities somewhere else.
Consider supervisory development or the lack of it.
Employee’s dissatisfaction with their direct supervisors is almost always the result of poor leadership development. In many Philippine organizations, new supervisors don’t get trained. They are promoted either because they are excellent individual performer, the most senior in the group, or to justify salary increase.
Most often, promotion is given not because someone is the most competent from the previous job. And even if the person is competent in the previous job, he’ll soon find himself incomptent in the new one because he was inadequately prepared.
Employees dislike being under a confused, unsure, and inadequate supervisor.
A leadership development program for supervisors and managers can help. Leaders who deliver results and those who help employees acquire winning behaviors and competencies increase employee commitment and loyalty to the organization.
Filipinos believe in malasakit. Someone who does not have malasakit is malas and sakit of his organization and community. If you want your employees to have malasakit, you must show your malasakit to them to. One manifestation of malasakit is your willingness to invest in them.
When you don’t invest in them — and this is true everywhere — they’re less willing to invest in your organization.

We know that there are many organizations where employees were repeatedly denied opportunities to grow. We don’t want to commit the same mistake.
Compass Center for Leadership offers some of the best development designs and learning experiences in team building.

We know that lack of teamwork impacts productivity, relationship, happiness… and the ability to deliver results that matter.
This is why we continously build teamwork among our business partners. Teamwork is a core competence in our leadership development programs.
Poor management inhibits collaboration and causes employees to focus inwardly on their own roles or departments at the expense of BHAGs.
Effective leaders coordinate tasks within department. They promote a collaborative work environment where everyone works more effectively.
Every organization has leadership development. Those who do not strategically develop their leaders have unprogrammed leadership development . They watch change happen to them- and then wonder why.
If they are lucky, they’ll get good leaders from outside who can initiate change and launch a counter-culture. But this will be very difficult because ineffective leaders and unproductive employees tend to resist change.
Not only that, ineffective leaders are influencers. They tend to pass bad habits onto their direct reports. Ineffective leaders impact the quality of your leadership pipeline. The cycle on negative consequences will continue. It will erode teamwork. It will prevent the environment of trust and accountability to flourish. It will eat away your chance of growing.
Unless you intervene.
You can turn things around and reverse the downward spiral. You can invest in learning experiences that will turn your high potential employees into leaders — and you can enable and equip your leaders to deliver results that really matter.
