Use the “Grandma Test” to Boost Your Leadership Skills
No, you won’t find the “Grandma Test” in any of John Maxwell’s leadership books, but the test is a good one.
“It’s a simple yet valuable approach,” says Bob Kaplitz, partner in the Rise Performance Group. Kaplitz has interviewed a wide range of leaders — from U.S. Presidents to CEO — and the “Grandma Test” came up in his interview with Cindy Schamp, President of Baylor Medical Center at Irving.
It takes more than the “Grandma Test” to become a leader. “Anyone can steer the ship, but it takes a leader to chart the course, and Cindy Schamp is that kind of leader,” says Kaplitz.
Rise Performance Group is passionate about helping companies improve top and bottom line performance. Maximizing the potential and performance of any organization requires a relentless pursuit of acquiring and developing top talent and leaders. Leaders in high performing companies know that their employees are the organization’s most important asset and that the quality of the company’s talent is the leading indicator of whether the business is heading up or heading down.
