What qualities do you think make a great leader? Does your leadership team exhibit those qualities, or could it be time for an assessment?
For the third episode of the six-week Accountability Equation™ podcast series, I dive deeper into the second A of the five A's of Accountability: “Assess”. In this episode, I discuss the importance of assessing the leadership team in your group practice. I share the qualities of a great leader and explain the process of assessing your existing leadership team. I also highlight the benefits of self-assessment for leaders, and discuss the challenges and pitfalls of the interview process when looking for your leadership team. Some of the things I cover in this episode are:
Why self-assessment is beneficial for leaders to reflect on their strengths and areas for improvement.
The challenges and pitfalls of leadership interviews, such as bias and limited information.
How to address the problem of limited diversity and inclusion in the interview process.
How to adequately prepare for leadership interviews, including thorough research on candidates and utilizing structured interview processes.
How to screen your leadership team for vision alignment, effective communication, decision-making skills, culture building, accountability, strategic thinking, resilience, and adaptability.
The "Assess" phase of The Accountability Equation™ is a critical step in ensuring the right people are in the right roles within your group practice. With the right tools and mindset, this process can be a powerful catalyst for organizational growth and success.
