Improving Workplace Culture With the Conscious Leader Psychometric
Were you aware that 56% of working adults say company culture is more important than salary when it comes to job satisfaction?
Data suggests that the cost of bad company culture is a staggering £15.7 billion per year. Leaders must do more to improve workplace culture and make employees feel valued, and this process begins with better leadership.
If an organisation commits to improving workplace culture, its leaders must uphold company values and empower employees to do the same. You can achieve this through Conscious Leadership, a model in which leaders commit to practise self-awareness, focus on growth, work sustainably and create an inclusive environment for all employees.
This blog will look at the benefits of Conscious Leadership and how this process can improve workplace culture. We’ll also outline how our industry-leading Conscious Leader psychometric can help you become a more conscious and inspiring leader, ultimately resulting in a positive company culture for everyone.
What Does It Mean to Be a Conscious Leader?
Conscious Leadership is a revolutionary leadership technique that can strengthen organisations by sustaining wellbeing and performance.
Conscious leaders are empowered to recognise and meet their own needs, realise their potential and act with intention, ensuring that their behaviour positively impacts themselves and others. Conscious Leadership focuses on the incredible power of self-awareness, which helps leaders form a greater connection with themselves and their teams.
Can Conscious Leadership Improve Workplace Culture?
Employees Are Empowered
When you don’t take a conscious approach to lead your teams, employees often feel their needs aren’t being met. Conscious Leadership means empowering your people with what they need to succeed, whether flexible working, greater autonomy over their role or further opportunities for professional development and career growth.
Conscious Behaviour Creates a Positive Working Environment
The best leaders recognise the impact that their behaviours may have on those around them. Conscious Leadership helps leaders become more empathetic and consciously behave in a positive way, both on their energy and the energy of others. This allows them to sustain their own performance and that of their teams.
Psychological Safety Becomes a Priority
“Psychological safety” in the workplace involves creating environments where people can be honest and open about who they are and how they feel without fear of judgement or punishment. When Conscious Leadership is adopted within an organisation, this promotes a culture of self-awareness across all teams, making it easier to create safe and healthy spaces for employees to thrive.
How Our Psychometric Fosters a Positive Workplace Culture
Leaders are central to the success of any company and are expected to shoulder a great deal of responsibility. Our University College London (UCL) validated psychometric assessment gives you valuable insight into how you are doing as a leader. It is proven to be a highly accurate predictor of wellbeing, burnout, and performance — more than any other psychometric test for leadership on the market.
Everyone who takes our psychometric assessment is provided with a holistic view of supporting their own wellbeing and performance, helping them identify individual strengths and areas for development. This is an invaluable tool for leaders, giving them a crucial understanding of what makes them thrive and the actions they can take to become the best version of themselves.
Armed with this knowledge and self-awareness, you can become a more inspiring, intentional leader open to honest communication. These leaders have a more significant impact on those around them, shaping a conscious and positive workplace culture from the top.
