The Leadership Circle Expands Reach in Latin America
Best-in-Class Leadership Development Extended to Spanish Speaking Countries
May 9, 2013 Toledo, OH (U.S.A.)—The Leadership Circle is pleased to announce an expanded presence in Latin America with new offices in Bogota, Colombia to better serve the Spanish-speaking countries of Central and South America.
“Our world needs leaders dedicated to creating a thriving future for global business and our sustainable collective welfare,” said Bob Anderson, founder and CEO of The Leadership Circle. “We’re pleased to extend our suite of best-in-class leadership assessments and workshops to this part of the world.”
“Business leadership everywhere is setting the agenda for the planet’s future,” said Art Shirk, Director of Learning for The Leadership Circle – América Latina, “When it comes to developing leaders, training to competencies alone does not work very well. Solutions from The Leadership Circle deliver more rapid and lasting results by helping leaders gain deeper insight into their behavior and what is driving it.”
The company’s flagship offering, The Leadership Circle Profile™, is a robust 360-degree personal leadership assessment that is designed to accelerate leadership effectiveness beyond traditional competency-based approaches. The Leadership Circle Profile is the only 360-degree competency assessment that simultaneously provides focused competency feedback while revealing the underlying assumptions that are causing a leader’s pattern of strengths and limitations. The Leadership Circle Profile helps leaders understand the relationship between how they habitually think, how they behave, and, more importantly, how all this impacts their current level of leadership effectiveness.
“The Leadership Circle Profile expands a leader’s awareness. Once greater awareness is established,” said Shirk, “Leadership development can proceed. Without it, change rarely happens.”
The Latin American offices of The Leadership Circle will also support sales, certification, and delivery of the Leadership Culture Assessment, a similar 360-degree view of leadership across teams and organizations. Also offered will be certification workshops for HR/OD practitioners and professionals wishing to use these assessments inside client organizations.
Two Leadership Circle Profile certifications are already scheduled, one July 31-August 2 in Lima, Peru and a second from September 23-25 in Bogota, Colombia (additional details can be found online at /services-2/calendar). Each certification is a three day program in which individuals with executive coaching experience can be certified to administer The Leadership Circle assessments, provide debriefing, and support follow-through coaching for managers and leaders.
