The State Of Leadership in Spain
There are many factors that affect business. Leadership is among the most important when it comes to boosting the performance of a company. Managerial talent is one of the major sources of sustainable competitive advantage that a company has because its value is almost directly reflection of the managers’ decisions. A strong leadership team within a company can inspire creativity, increase productivity and help keep the company strong against their competition.
Treeveo, a startup company based in Barcelona, recently conducted a survey to understand the state of leadership in Spain. The survey was rolled out over a month’s time by interviewing participants from different disciplines about the characteristics of their respective bosses. This was done via www.comoestujefe.es. After completing their analysis of the data from 600+ participants, they have found some very interesting data about the difference in Catalan leaders and leaders from the rest of Spain.
A couple main highlights of the survey findings include:
“Leaders from Catalonia are on average more visionary than those from the rest of Spain”
“Leaders from the rest of Spain are on average more intellectually stimulating than those from Catalonia.”
The entire project was designed around a widely acclaimed scientific leadership framework called the Full Range Leadership Model. The survey was designed around this model, created to identify performance within each individual dimension of the framework.
The survey asked questions like the following to rate their boss against specific dimensions.
Q: This picture most accurately describes my boss. (Most popular answer: Josep Guardiola)
Q: Does my boss lead by example? (54%)
Q: Does my boss demand me best performance? (%78)
Jeroen Kemperman, co-founder and CEO of the company says, “Since our product helps to develop the leadership skills of our users, we were naturally curious about how well the current leaders in Spain are doing. That led us to this experiment, and ultimately to some enlightening conclusions.”
