Leadership capability frameworks allow organisations to assess leadership potential, manage ongoing leadership capabilities and give strategic weight to L&D

CANBERRA, Australia - eTradeWire -- Leadership capability frameworks outline the capabilities required by leaders to achieve key business objectives. They help create a common language around what 'good' and effective leadership looks like in an organisation. The Acorn subject matter experts believe leadership capability frameworks are an important tool for organisations to identify, develop and promote the right people, removing the guesswork and subjectivity from the equation.

Leadership capability frameworks allow organisations to assess leadership potential, manage ongoing leadership capabilities and give strategic weight to L&D. It does this by providing markers of skills and proficiency to evaluate talent for promotion and development.

Capabilities represent the alignment between people, resources and processes. They aren't easily replicable but are found within nearly every leading and disruptive company. Strong leadership capability frameworks are broad, in-depth, clear, comprehensive, unique to your organisation and promote successful skill development.

"Leaders make or break business strategy, since they're translating it into action for employees and overseeing the work that realises it," said Blake Proberts (Co-Founder & Managing Director). "That's why you want a universal blueprint for effective leadership in your organisation. A capability framework ensures that everyone knows what is expected of them and success can be replicated in new generations of leaders."

The Acorn experts outline a simple three step process for developing a leadership capability framework. It begins by refining business priorities. Determining business successes and failures is important to defining leadership capabilities. Next is to conduct a capability audit. This identifies the characteristics that are critical for leaders within an organisation. Lastly decide key leadership capabilities and identify the core capabilities leaders need to drive business outcomes.

Leadership capabilities should be derived from business values, goals and strengths. Ideally, they combine hard capabilities, like change management and stakeholder engagement, with soft capabilities, like communication and nurturing. This helps give organisations an achievable, not just aspirational, measure of effective leadership.
