The swiftest path to collaboration is through High Character behavior that flows from the senior team.
Our research shows that the swiftest path to collaboration is through High Character behavior that flows from the senior team throughout the organization. Organizations led by High Character teams create climates where it is psychologically safe to collaborate and conditions that enable execution readiness and engagement.
High Character leaders and their teams score higher on empathizing with and empowering others, asking for help when they need it, actively caring for others, and demonstrating commitment to others’ development—key High Character behaviors that lead to collaboration within and across verticals.
Leveraging our Return on Character® research, we focus on senior leadership as well as the collective leadership culture to target the specific features that determine the success (or failure) of collaboration and shared purpose. Our predictive analytics cut through complexity to measure and predict which habits individuals and teams should implement to have the most productive impact on their ability to collaborate and work effectively together.
Our Return on Character® benchmark identifies the one behavior—the Keystone Habit—that will have the greatest impact on collaboration and will result in cascading benefits in other areas such as financial performance, innovation, risk mitigation, business skills, and employee engagement.
