Scenario
You are the VP of Human Resources of a publicly traded company. You have determined, using analy sis based on workforce analytics, that the divisional leaders across the company are not consistent in their application of leadership behaviors, and thus are sending mixed signals across the organization. As a result, productivity and employee engagement has decreased. Subsequently, quarterly financial performance indicators have not reached targeted levels for three quarters. You intend to recommend to the CEO that a new leadership development program should be implemented for the divisional leadership so that they will better understand the impact of their leadership as well as promote a more unified approach to leading.
