But, you are a graduate student, recent grad, or just starting out in your career path, and you don’t need ‘leadership skills’ in your chosen line of work. Right? Wrong!
Leadership isn’t just about managing people who report to you or directing a group of employees through a project. Leadership, the way I see it, is so much more than that. It’s about how we encouraging others to achieve their goals, help them realize their potential, or even how we manage our own lives. Leadership encompases both the way we conduct ourselves and how we interact with others. It involves empowering those around you, as well as supporting yourself.
In the workplace, leadership may take the form of effectively communicating an idea you have for a new product or direction for the company with confidence and conviction. It might be represented by giving your colleague credit for doing most of the work on a project that you collaborated on. It may even be training a new employee or helping a current employee learn new skills.
Leadership is everywhere; most people just don’t always see it. Leadership skills can help you achieve excellence not only in the workplace, but in your relationships with family and friends as well. So how can you afford NOT to develop these skills that are bound to help you improve in so many areas of life, and what exactly can you gain from taking a leadership skills assessment and talking to one of our interpreters about your results? I’m glad you asked.
The CPI 260® assessment can give you a new view of your preferences, attitudes and behaviors and how they are perceived by other people. Looking in the mirror is one thing; seeing yourself through other people’s eyes is completely different. You may think you are presenting yourself in a certain way, but you may be either misrepresenting your qualities or unintentionally misleading a potential employer regarding your strengths. Knowing how you are currently perceived can help you present your strong suits and make sure that you are a good fit for a position.
