What is Leadership Development?

In the trueU community, we believe leadership is not defined by a person’s title or position; it is defined by the characteristics and behaviors of a person as they lead a group of people to success. We believe the best companies help leaders improve their leadership skills to help maximize effectiveness.

Here are some traits and behaviors which characterize effective leadership:

  • Building strong, lasting relationships
  • Motivating and inspiring others to do their best
  • Leading by example by always acting honestly and with integrity
  • Thinking critically and solving problems effectively
  • Communicating clearly and effectively
  • Driving others toward excellent results
  • Helping others become the best version of themselves
  • Innovating and thinking creatively

How to Develop Leaders

Everyone has the potential to cultivate and improve all of these traits and behaviors. If you want to see stronger leaders in your company, trueU has great news for you: we can help!

There are many strategies to develop strong, effective leaders. Here are some tactics we focus on:

Creating Coaching Opportunities

At trueU, we provide excellent coaching for future and current leaders. We focus on community coaching rather than individual 1:1 sessions. When you invest in coaching opportunities for your people, they will feel empowered and valued.

Communicating Top-Level Objectives

Leaders who understand what is most important to your company will lead others toward your business goals. We help you communicate with your employees about what their priorities should be.

Starting Leadership Development Early

If you see promise in an individual, do not wait to start developing their leadership skills. Developing employees from the start builds loyalty and positive workplace culture.

Developing the Right People

You want to develop people who share the core values of your company and who have a desire to lead and grow. You do not necessarily need to limit development to people with the most experience.

The beauty of leadership development is taking a chance on an individual who shows promise and has drive. They will learn new skills and be grateful for the opportunity, leading to more productive and loyal employees.

Benefits of Leadership Training

What are some benefits trueU offers, and what are the tangible results you can expect to see from this kind of company development?

Here are some highlights:

Nurturing Future Leaders

You will help shape future leaders who share your company objectives, goals, and values.

Increasing Productivity

When people in leadership roles know how to lead effectively, you will see an increase in productivity. Good leaders know how to manage their time, delegate tasks, and push for the best possible results.

Retaining More Employees

When you demonstrate to your employees you are invested in their growth, they will reward you with loyalty. Workplace cultures which create space for upward mobility and training are desirable. You will notice leadership training draws people in and keeps them around.

Increasing Employee Engagement

If an employee feels their work and opportunities are stagnant, they may show a lack of engagement and start looking for new jobs. By contrast, employees with an opportunity to lead will show more passion for their work and stay more engaged.

Making Better Decisions

When you have more capable leaders on your company’s roster, it benefits your company in countless ways. For one, you will find you make better decisions as a company with more informed voices in the mix.
