You don’t have to be perfect to be an outstanding leader!

“ You don’t have to be perfect to be an outstanding leader!”

That was the statement of Mr. Rex Brown, Vice President of Zenger Folkman, at the international conference “Leadership for success in integration” organized by Le & Associates (L&A) in collaboration with the Ho Chi Minh City Association for Women Executives and Entrepreneurs (Hawee) last week in Ho Chi Minh City.

Outstanding leadership doubles profits

A study by Zenger Folkman of 850,000 leadership effectiveness surveys worldwide shows that outstanding leaders can significantly improve customer satisfaction, retain talent and double profits. Mr. Nguyen Xuan Hong – Chairman of the Board of Directors of a company in Ho Chi Minh City shared at the forum: I always invest in developing leadership capacity for company administrators, assigning specific authority and encouraging that: “The Please do it, I can’t bear anything!” and the company’s sales have grown in the range of 50-100% over the past three years.

A highly agreed view at the conference is that leadership capacity can be learned and trained, not innate. However, measuring leadership capacity quantitatively, presenting it visually, and comparing it with common standards is a difficult problem. For the first time in Vietnam, an assessment and measurement tool that meets these requirements – The Extraordinary Leader TM – is Vietnameseized and exploited by L&A under copyright of Zenger Folkman(*) , as a basis for planning personal development effectively and in accordance with the company’s direction.

No need to overcome “weaknesses”

In fact, leaders are also human, they also make many mistakes and have many weaknesses. The reason they shine and outperform those around them is because they demonstrate and are recognized for their strengths instead of struggling to overcome their weaknesses.

Currently, Vietnamese businesses often train and develop leaders in the traditional way, focusing on overcoming weaknesses. But according to Zenger Folkman, in reality, unless the administrator has a “fatal” weakness, promoting one’s own strengths will bring easier and faster results in improving leadership capacity. Ms. Huynh Thi Xuan Lien, Deputy General Director of Suntory Pepsico Vietnam, said she used this method with her administrators instead of the traditional way of overcoming weaknesses and found the results were much more positive. She encourages businesses to follow the path of developing leadership capacity based on strengths to be more successful.

Comprehensive human resource solution

With the desire to help businesses optimize human resource management and development, from strategic planning to implementing human resources operations smoothly and with high efficiency, L&A has invested in research, testing and combine with the world’s leading partners to bring comprehensive human resources solutions in Vietnam. Your business can purchase the Outstanding Leader package separately or combine it with products in L&A’s other human resources training and consulting services to bring the highest efficiency.

Zenger Folkman is a world-renowned leadership assessment and development company with a large client base in the Fortune 500, founded by two leading leadership researchers, Dr. Jack Zenger and Dr. Joseph Folkman.
