How to counterbalance Executive Risks

Managers still derail. They fight, flight or freeze. This is especially critical in times in which pressure is high such as the current worldwide pandemic. Managers and companies are interested to identify potential derailment and do something about it before it has significant consequences.

Derailing behavior often is situation specific. Therefore, it can be tricky to identify underlying risk factors in a coaching process. As a result, managers sometimes have difficulties implementing insights into their daily routines in a way that makes a difference.

In the webinar, we will present and discuss three elements of making derailment for managers less likely: How to …

  • assess personality-based derailment tendencies 
  • debrief tendencies as situation-specific as possible
  • address underlying dogmas, in a way, that makes development less resource-intensive.

As an example, we will use HOGAN, the global premium personality assessments, and provide numerous examples from our work with executives and their teams.
