Leadership is a circle, not a ladder
Houston, TX (Vocus) October 8, 2009
Dr. Angelo Valenti, executive coach and organizational psychologist will be featured on Total Career Success, an Internet show on VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network, at 11 a.m. Central on Monday, October 12. The show is designed to inform and encourage listeners to achieve their career goals by featuring experts and business leaders to provide job search assistance and career development. Having served as a psychological consultant to management in a variety of industries, including financial services, publishing, distribution, retail, healthcare, insurance, telecommunications, security, and transportation services, Dr. Valenti has observed that the most important element of successful organizations is alignment. Organizational alignment involves:
•Matching the right people to the right positions
•Communicating organizational expectations and soliciting employee expectations
•Distributing leadership responsibility
•Profiling positions and projects
•Profiling competencies of talent
•Developing a Composite Team for alignment
“Leadership is a circle, not a ladder,” according to Dr. Valenti. By developing a purposeful and methodical leadership system that aligns what people do best with what organizations need most, the stage is set to focus everyone’s unique talents and abilities on making the organization thrive. In a tough economic environment this is more important than ever. A well designed leadership system is not by chance or luck. And while hiring the right talent is important, properly aligning the talent already on hand is equally important. A well designed leadership system can optimize performance and profitability.
Show co-host Sheryl Dawson shared, “Angelo reveals the intangible aspect of the organization – what he calls the composite personality. He challenges leaders to take the energy of each individual contributor and direct it to create synergy around the organization’s goals and needs.”
Co-host Ken Dawson added, “Angelo’s leadership system is a powerful concept because it provides leaders with a practical methodology to analyze both the specific requirements of their goals and the competencies and styles of their team members to facilitate alignment. With alignment leaders are able to create the greatest synergy and highest performance.”
Dawson encourages everyone, “Learn to profile your initiatives and team members, select the best talent for the task on hand and go to work. The results will be phenomenal.”
The show will air live at 11 a.m. - noon Central on October 12, 2009. To listen, please visit Voiceamerica.com and search for Total Career Success.
