  • 2. Instytut Analiz im. Karola Gaussa / all rights reserved / www.iakg.pl Challenge Based Development™ World & Polish Business Leaders about challenges and experiences. 2 • Tomorrow’s leaders get their training by dealing with today’s challenges. You have to take the ones with the most potential and send them where the action is. . . . Leaders are formed in the fires of experience. Carlos Ghosn, CEO Nissan & Renault (Ghosn & Ries, 2005, pp. 152–153). • I don’t believe in intuition. Maybe I will say something controversial, but intuition is experiences that we can’t knowingly associate. If some person doesn’t have experiences, he also doesn’t have an intuition. Michał Bichta, managing Director, Merck Sp .z o.o. Dobre przywództwo. Najlepsze praktyki polskich liderów biznesu. A. Drzewiecki D. Chełmiński, E. Kubica (p.173) Wolters Kluwer, Warsaw 2011

Evidence Based Management Best available scientific evidence Best available experiential evidence Best available organizational evidence Organizational values and stakeholders’ concerns • Thanks to the Evidence-Based Management approach we diagnose the effectiveness of managers, as well as the key factors that are responsible for their current effectiveness.

As a result, they are developing through real job experience. Challenge Based Development™ The advantages of the development program Managers usually strive toward the same set of organizational goals, but to succeed in that, each manager needs a different kind of support. The reason is that they differ in terms of various psychological variables (e.g. personality) and the situation in which they work. The Challenge Based Development program takes into account the individual's characteristics and motivations of each manager in the selection of developmental tasks for development tasks which are important for the organization.
  • 6. Instytut Analiz im. Karola Gaussa / all rights reserved / www.iakg.pl 6 Challenge is an ambitious task, fulfilled by a particular manager. The task is relevant to the role and responsibilities of the manager. The challenge is tailored to the results of psychological diagnosis of the manager and the opportunities existing in a particular organization. The challenge should be considered both demanding and new for the manager. Challenge – what does it mean? IAKG definition

Certain experiences matter more than others. 3. These experiences are powerful because of the challenges they present. 4. Different types of experiences teach different lessons. 5. Jobs and assignments can be made more developmental. 6. People can get many of the experiences they need in spite of the obstacles. 7. Learning takes place over time and it’s dynamic, with all manner of twists and turns. Source: M.W. McCall, Recasting Leadership Development, „Industrial and Organizational Psychology”, 2010, nr 3, p. 3–19.

Karola Gaussa / all rights reserved / www.iakg.pl 16 Case study – salesforce manager working in logistics From diagnosis, through feedback, to action – part 2 John Smith – salesforce manager working in logistics 3) Interview – After receiving feedback concerning his test results John admits that he has problems with operational planning (he used to delegate such tasks to his assistant, who recently took maternity leave, so now he often ends up overwhelmed by small, operational issues). He holds weekly meeting that often turns out to be devoid of any clear structure or goals. John also tends to be inconsistent with his subordinates and he often sets unrealistic goals. He also admits that taking up challenges is what really motivates him in his job. 4) Setting developmental goals: main developmental goals were set with a time perspective of 3 months: 1. Increasing the effectiveness of sales team meetings (including goals that those meetings help to achieve and the amount of time that they require). 2. Increasing the quality of reporting (for both John and his sales team) 3. Increasing the profitability of contracts for 2 members of the sales team (by 15% and 22%). 4. Increasing the number of sales meetings (measured in the number of meetings for each sales assistant).
