Have you ever wondered how successful you are as a leader? Some people judge their leadership skills based on their contributions towards the progress of the company. However, that is not always an accurate measure of the leadership skills of the individual. Jeffery Whippo explains that every organization should establish a few metrics to help their leaders define and measure what success looks for them.
As per Whippo, employees who work together are much more productive than those who stay aloof and work by themselves. A good leader understands the potential of each of his team members and hones their skills and abilities to help them achieve their goals they set for themselves.
Moreover, Jeff Whippo points that a good leader should track the progress of each individual in their team. If people stay where they are on the talent map, it shows poor leadership. Overall, a good measure of your leadership success is calculating how many people have achieved big things under your leadership.
Whippo also indicates that some of the most commonly used measures to rate successful and unsuccessful leaders include rating superior's effectiveness and performance ratings, subordinates ratings of their job satisfaction and morale of their leader's effectiveness, and business unit performance indices.
