Life is about doing – and leadership is measured by the quality of its decisions and actions.
At Tessaro, we aren’t merely interested in competent leaders. Our unique “7 Sieves” framework serves as a stepping stone to identifying and developing balanced leaders, alongside our clients’ own values and competency requirements. Each Sieve defines a specific leadership quality.
In our view, only the candidates who pass through the rigour of all “7 Sieves” will make a sustainable difference.
Our observations, after more than 20 years’ experience of interviewing, collecting feedback and coaching thousands of successful executives, has led us to conclude that it is a person’s values, character and real substance that shape their efforts and energy. Hence, being guided by a genuine and selfless sense of purpose and demonstrating behaviour that can stand scrutiny provides a solid base to making a positive impact.
Balanced leaders understand that they need to reach out to a critical mass of individuals who have similar values if they are to embed sustainable change. They will strive to ensure that over time a shift in corporate thinking and behaviour takes place. Their strategies will harmonise stakeholders’ interests and contribution to society. They realise that building long-lasting and meaningful relationships is fundamental to engaging others to play their part.
