Every workgroup is different, and with so many complex variables to consider, how can you determine what makes an effective leader? The answer is focus and flexibility. The Focused Leader Profile helps participants gain essential leadership skills for group success by identifying critical factors to help leaders narrow their focus, analyze workgroup situations, and determine how to respond effectively.

The Focused Leader Profile presents leaders with eight work scenarios and four possible responses. Scoring participants' results generate two profiles: one for style effectiveness and one for leadership flexibility.

How it works

Participants are introduced to the three factors of focused leadership. They learn how to analyze these factors when choosing an effective task/relationship-oriented approach to address workgroup situations. The interpretation of profile results and action planning help leaders apply their learning to a current workgroup situation.

Three factors of focused leadership:

  1. Relationships among the leader and the group members
  2. The clarity of the task
  3. The power of a leader to carry out the organization’s work

Learning outcomes

The Focused Leader Profile instrument identifies three factors to help leaders narrow their focus and analyze workgroup situations. Learning outcomes are:

  • Improve relationships among leaders and group members
  • Develop clarity of the task
  • Determine the leader's power base
  • Learn key factors leaders should use to analyze and use to respond to workgroup situations
  • Identify appropriate tasks or relationship-focused responses
  • Develop personalized action steps for responding to a current leadership situation

Uses and applications

The Focused Leader Profile is appropriate for leaders at any organizational level. Flexible enough to be used as a standalone instrument or as a component in a larger leadership-training program, it's the perfect starting point in helping leaders to think in terms of the "situation-ality."

Use the Focused Leader Profile as:

  • New supervisor/manager training. Use this workshop as a baseline for new managers. Coupled with an explanation of the theory and the three factors of leadership, new managers have a foundation for developing and fine-tuning their management skills.
  • Refresher training. Use this training tool as a pre/post-application. By taking the profile twice, managers gain a comparison and help in identifying areas of strength and improvement.
  • Component of a longer training system. Use this profile as part of a supervisory or leadership development curriculum.
