Are You Caught in the Hindrance Trap?
Complete this assessment to find out.
Do you help bring out the best in your people or do you inadvertently hold them back from superior performance? Although it is best to consider this question by carefully reflecting on the way you approach your leadership role and how those you lead see you, the organizational dimensions of these behaviors can be gleaned more readily. In our experience, we often find that the two go together. In other words, firms that have a greater proportion of leaders adopting helping behaviors are also the ones that have tried hard to ensure that the work environment supports such an orientation. To assess the prevalence of the helping versus hindering behaviors in your organization, please answer the following questions.
