Perspective on Leadership

We believe in the difference great leaders can make in an organization.

Leadership is about balance. Great leaders know how to balance business acumen and analytical skills with interpersonal skills, communication, and empathy. They focus on the future and help make ideas actionable today. They have a broad perspective and understand the impact of their actions on others and over time.

Insight Experience's learning programs incorporate and reinforce a wide range of leadership models and insights, but here are the core ideas that are the foundation of our work.

Balancing Leadership™

Balancing Leadership™ considers leadership perspective and action across three dimensions: time horizon, organizational orientation, and interpersonal approach. Balanced leaders vary their perspective across these dimensions from visionary to tactical; from internal to external; from the short term to the long term. They mobilize teams, focus on the future, and deliver results better than their peers. They are able to balance the tightrope of leadership.

The Business Cycle of Leadership™

The Business Cycle of Leadership™ highlights the critical impact of leadership on results: How you lead impacts the effectiveness of the operating decisions implemented by your team — and this affects how teams drive business outcomes. Leaders lead through their communication, their direction, and the intentional allocation of their time and attention. Leaders impact employees by building skill, trust, and engagement.

Strategic Communication

What you say is a powerful lever of leadership. Employees listen to leadership messages at multiple levels. What are people looking for in a communication from their leader? Appropriate content and context, empathy and energy, clear accountability, and consistency.

The Strategy Execution Cycle™

Strategy Execution requires a diverse range of skills, behaviors, and discipline from a leader and an organization. Leaders who can align strategy across layers in the organization; translate that strategy into action; and adapt that strategy, based on what happens over time, enable a business to succeed. Leaders with the skills to execute strategy enable companies to outperform their competitors, bring new products to market faster, and delight their customers.
