How effective are your leadership systems and processes?

WRITTEN BYJames Price | JPAbusiness

There are a lot of ‘soft skills’ involved in being a good business leader – listening, empathising, communicating and motivating are probably top of the list.

But leading a business or a team also requires a level of planning and control that is best underpinned by effective and efficient business systems and processes.

The following table is designed to help you conduct an initial self-assessment of the effectiveness of your current leadership systems and processes.

Mark the answer that best describes the current state of your business for each of the questions below: 1 = strongly disagree, 2 = disagree, 3 = neither agree nor disagree, 4 = agree, 5 = strongly agree.
