Building Leadership Capacity to Maintain Strength During Uncertain Times

Building leadership capacity isn't just about developing competencies, it's about building self-awareness and having conversations. Join Dr. Mike Woodward at GMSHRM's June 16th event.

As we navigate these very challenging times one of the keys to surviving, and potentially thriving on the backend, is strong leadership. It is the role of HR practitioners to help facilitate the communication between executives and their director/management teams. Building leadership capacity isn't just about developing competencies, it's about building self-awareness and having conversations.   

  • Assessments – Personality is a critical component to understanding how we communicate and manage. Key to generating management team conversations is creating a common language. Regardless of the particular assessment tool used, using personality assessments allows for the use of common terminology in discussing personality/style preferences and how they impact communication. Discussion about personality also helps managers build awareness of their own style and how their style impacts others in both positive and negative ways.
  • Articulating Philosophy – Building internal leadership capacity requires leaders/managers to be on the same page. As an HR practitioner, it is your role to help facilitate structured communication between executives and their management teams so as to create a shared understanding of management and leadership within your company. It is critical that executives communicate their expectations clearly to their directors and managers.  
  • Controlling the Message – HR practitioners must work closely with their executive and management teams to ensure consistency of leadership, management, and direction. This means that the organization’s leadership must be on the same page in order for messages to be clear. The role of HR is to ensure that a singular management philosophy is understood and adhered to.
