  • Description

    About the Leadership Maturity Model

    The leadership maturity model maps seven levels of leadership quality and energy from abdication to duty-driven. It maps character traits and behavior and provides us with a roadmap for leadership development. 

    What can the leadership maturity model do for you? 

    We use the leadership maturity model to make sense of leadership actions and capabilities – to understand motivation and put decision-making in context. It gives us the means to understand the capability of a leader and their ability to move large numbers of people with cohesion, alignment, and congruence. 

    Organizational maturity will always be limited by leadership maturity and hence, organizations that seek great change and aspire to market-leading performance must develop the leaders who can take them there. 

    Benefits of the leadership maturity model 

    • Assess leadership value. The model provides a codification for actions that let us see that all acts of leadership are not equal.  
    • Proactively develop leaders. The model and the character traits provide us not only with a means of assessment but a roadmap for the development of individual leaders. 
    • Maps directly to the Organizational Maturity Model. Lets us compare leadership maturity and behavior with organizational maturity and integrate leadership development into an overall organizational improvement and development plan.

    The Kanban Leadership Professional Path

    Week 1: Understanding Leadership 

    • 4 half-days of live sessions
    • Monday to Thursday
    • Additional reading and assignments outside of live sessions

    Students will learn the 7 levels of leadership maturity and the character traits observed at each level. They will learn that leadership can take several forms and learn when and how to lead by direction, by example, by inspiration, and by signaling. 

    Great leadership requires great empathy and hence a deep understanding of the human condition. Using models from Plato, Aristotle, Maslow, & Kahneman, together with theory from social psychology, clinical psychology, and the study of resilience, and neuroscience and brain chemistry, students will learn how to recognize and interpret human behavior. 

    Humans are social, pack animals, and to lead them successfully leaders must understand sociology and how humans behave in groups. The 3-dimensional model of organizational culture helps leaders make sense of their situation and provides them with specific, actionable levers to hack culture and drive change. Understanding tribal behavior is vital for successful leaders. Students will be introduced to the Immelman matrices and understand how identity & purpose can drive change. This will be integrated with Maslow´s Hierarchy and an understanding of the human condition. 

    Finally, the concept of social entropy, leaders as entropy reducers, and the relationship of the leadership and organizational maturity models to complexity science and integration with the Cynefin Framework will help to put leadership actions into the proper context. 

    Week 2: Actionable Leadership 

    • 4 half-days of live sessions
    • Monday to Thursday
    • Additional reading and assignments outside of live sessions

    Discover the organizational maturity model to help make sense of your organization and make decisions and take actions in context. A service-oriented bias in organizational design & architecture will help with alignment and purpose, as well as providing a solid basis for evolutionary resilience and business agility. 

    The Evolutionary Change Model is a vital tool in understanding how to make change happen. 

    Implementing active feedback mechanisms that drive change and improvement is a vital leadership skill. Understanding how to design and implement effective feedback systems in your organization, through an understanding of how such systems work within the human brain (hypothalamus) enables leaders to adapt solutions rather than following templates, frameworks, and prescriptive approaches. 

    Learn to Drive evolutionary change by selecting the right metrics (using the Fit-for-Purpose Framework) and integrating Objectives & Key Results (OKRs) with the right feedback mechanisms. 

    Learn to hack culture with explicit values, and decision filters, and actions that change the three social dimensions of social capital, social cohesion, and social innovation. Learn how your organization can build trust. Learn to build organizational resilience (and maturity).  

    The class concludes with a review of three well known frameworks for management and leadership:
