In 2010, after more than 25 years working as a psychologist and executive in more than 40 countries, and having experienced firsthand the responsibility of leadership and its effects, Dr. Glenn Williams began to analyze the relationship between leadership character and performance.
This initiative lead to a breakthrough understanding on how organizational culture, leadership identity and well-being affects decision-making and organizational performance.
During this time, LCP Global’s research into developing leaders has focused on creating the methodology and content of the Leadership Capacity Program™ to achieve significant outcomes in less than 90 days.
More than 1,000 senior leaders and executives from twelve countries have helped to make this a success.
LCP uses a strengths-based and decision-oriented evaluation approach that constructs a personalized leadership development framework for leaders that measures change and results in terms of intellectual capital and connectivity with a built-in feedback mechanism.
This approach monitors performance of outputs and evaluates outcomes that reflect change of trend or behavior (goals). This approach is in line with expert recommender systems used by organizations manage and connect employees with the knowledge they need. The value of that knowledge increases as employees understand its connection to their goals and development.
A key attribute of a decision-oriented evaluation approach is that its organizer is, decisions. Its sole purpose is to provide a knowledge and value base for making and defending decisions.
Its strength is that it encourages the use of reflection and evaluation to plan and implement strategies to achieve desired outcomes. It helps justify decisions and requires a necessary collaboration between an independent evaluator (coach) and decision-maker to avoid blind spots, bias, and influence of external pressures.
Therefore, the LCP approach measures the value and connection of a person’s intellectual capital against their behavior and desired outcomes; and ultimately, their performance.
