The 12 Core Competencies in the programme

There are twelve core competencies in the programme. These specific competencies have been carefully selected after much academic debate during the design stage, because it has been proven that they underpin almost every activity a manager will be required to perform.

  • Time Management and Prioritising
  • Setting Goals and Standards
  • Planning and Scheduling Work
  • Listening and Organising
  • Giving Clear Information
  • Getting Unbiased Information
  • Training, Coaching and Delegating
  • Appraising People and Performance
  • Disciplining and Counselling
  • Identifying and Solving Problems
  • Making Decisions, Weighing Risk
  • Thinking Clearly and Analytically
The initial MAP Assessment also measures management behaviour in terms of:

  • Management style:
    • Theory X – Parent – Child
    • Theory Y – Adult – Adult
  • Communication style:
    • Empathic
    • Critical
    • Searching
    • Advising
  • Personal style:
    • Thinker
    • Intuitor
    • Sensor
    • Feeler

Summary of Key points

 

  • A vast amount of time and money is wasted in developing managers because not enough time is spent identifying real development needs.
  • To develop effective management skills you need to know where you are starting from.
  • By investing up-front in a rigorous assessment test and diagnostic process it becomes easier to specify measurable learning objectives and motivate learners to close any gaps identified.
  • Benchmark your Managers against 14,000 other UK Managers.
  • LEAP utilises a broad range of learning styles and options to ensure individual needs are met.
  • The generic competencies underpin a broad range of management activities and can support implementation of in-house competency programmes.
  • Increased proficiency correlates to increased performance.
  • All trainers and coaches on the programme are highly qualified and licensed.
  • Robust evaluation is built into the programme.

The investment in the three stage Foundation Programme will depend on the number of managers on the programme.

Results Achieved

We have a number of Case Studies that demonstrate the improvements that can be achieved, available on request.

Case Study Example 1

The Dark Blue is the Average score of 15,000 UK Managers
SMT represents the Senior Management Team who were slightly above average in the initial assessment.
The Middle Managers were below average to begin with.

LEAP Senior Team and Management initial scores

At the end of the 6 month programme the SMT had massively improved and the Middle mangers were average or above average on 8 of the 12 competencies.

Note the drop in the X style of Management – this indicates that the Senior Team were becoming less ‘Top Down’ and ‘Autocratic’ in their approach.

LEAP - Senior Team and Management Team results

There is consistent evidence that where people focus on and engage with the learning materials for a particular competency they improve their proficiency.

Case Study Example 2

The following competencies were prioritised by a client and we ran a number of half day workshops to compliment the individual learning materials.
