What is a Leadership Performance Evaluation & Strategy Session? (LPESS)
The Leadership Performance Evaluation & Strategy Session (LPESS) is a thorough discussion (up to 3 hours) designed to establish clear understanding of you and what you want. Together we evaluate and uncover your strengths, weaknesses, and blind spots. Another way of saying it is we uncover the real source of the problems and challenges you’re facing in your business and in your life. An LPESS involves you taking our Predictor Profile assessments.
We make sure that you not only understand what your results say, but that you also walk away with absolute clarity around the way you have been creating your current reality. This will support you when making decisions about your strategy moving forward.
What will a Leadership Performance Evaluation & Strategy Session do for me?
If we were going to answer this in the simplest way we can, we would say it will give you clarity and certainty. This process will give you clarity and certainty around what it is about you that has been creating the reality that you have. This means understanding your strengths that have supported you, your weaknesses that have held you back, and also your blind spots that have been sabotaging you.
One of the most common things we hear our clients say is “I know what I should be doing, I’m just not doing it.” It’s a real source of frustration because they don’t understand why they’re not doing those things. This is a perfect example of what will the LPESS do for me.
If you’ve read up on our Predictor Profile assessments you already know that everyone has blind spots. These are things you do that you aren’t aware you’re doing, that are pulling the rug out from under your own feet. These blind spots are the sources of the problems that arise in business and in life.
Since you’re not aware of them, you’ll assign cause to other things instead; you’ll think you’ve sorted out the source of the problem, but the problem continues. If we use the example above, the ‘Why am I not doing it?’ will be revealed in your LPESS.
Think of it this way. If the light suddenly goes out in the room you’re sitting in you’ll have a problem that you want to solve. To solve it, you’ll take a series of steps in order to get the light back on. You’ll be looking for the real source of the problem.
The first step might be to flick the switch to make sure someone didn’t accidentally bump it. If the light turns back on, you found the source of the problem. How do you know? Because the problem disappears.
If not, then the only thing you know is that you haven’t found the source of the problem yet.
The next step might be to check the circuit breaker. How will you know if that was the source of the problem? The light will switch back on.
If not, then you know you haven’t found the real source of the problem yet. So then you might replace the lightbulb. And if that doesn’t work, you’ll check if the power is out on your street.
What’s important to note is that when you find the real source of the problem and you take one action, the problem disappears.
The same applies to human behaviour. If you think you’ve found the source of a problem, and the problem has continued, you’ve not found the real source. It’s going to be a blind spot.
In an Evaluation & Strategy Session, we discuss the results of your Predictor Profiles, support you to understand and inspect what the results have said, and where your blind spots are.
We will be prepared for our meeting with you having spent a number of hours studying your results.
Once you have the clarity and certainty that we’re discussing you’ll be more able to make decisions about your strategy moving forward. We can support you with that as much or as little as you’d like.
How do I get started?
The first thing we want to do is sit down with you over a cup of coffee (either face to face or on Skype) and have a conversation.
We want to understand what’s going on for you and what it is that has your attention. This initial conversation allows us to get clarity on what you’re hoping to accomplish, so we can better determine if it’s something we can help you with.
It also gives you a chance to meet and assess us and then you can decide if you’d like to work with us.
