Orem, UT, July 15, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- How often are you asked to do more work with less staff? Across all industries and countries, employees are being asked to accomplish more in less time and with fewer resources. Zenger Folkman found that the best way to increase effectiveness was to improve leadership speed.
“We found the better leaders moved at a quicker pace,” said Jack Zenger, CEO of Zenger Folkman. “They more rapidly saw trends. They were quick to identify and solve problems. However, to be more precise, my colleague Joe Folkman and I determined that what made these leaders so effective was not merely that they acted quickly. Instead, it was the combination of operating at a fast tempo and simultaneously producing work of high quality. Their creation of greater value came from a quicker pace that didn’t compromise quality.”
While quality measurements are typically very set, speed has almost limitless variability. There are multiple ways to improve and increase speed by developing companion behaviors. A Zenger Folkman study showed those leaders who were in the top percentile for leadership speed were two times more effective than others.
