Using a model developed by Korn Ferry for its Voices 360 instrument, we identified the competencies below as the top five leadership gaps across their organizations: 1. Develops talent— helping them meet their career goals and the organization’s goals 2. Values differences— recognizing the value that different cultures and perspectives offer 3. Demonstrates self-awareness— using feedback and reflection to gain personal insight 4. Adapts to situations— adapting approach and demeanor to fit shifting demands and situations 5. Builds effective teams— developing strong teams that apply diverse skills to achieve team goals Notice anything that these leadership gaps have in common? They are all related to interpersonal effectiveness and emotional intelligence. They do not include other leadership factors like business insight, financial acumen, strategic mindset, managing execution or driving results. They are all on the softer side of leadership competence.
