Models for Management

Models for Management ® (MFM) is a comprehensive management training and leadership development process consisting of six modules with customizable learning and delivery methods. Based on empirically validated research, MFM provides an integrated process of awareness, measurement, and transformational learning processes, designed to accomplish one thing -  to help managers become High Achieving Leaders.

Achieving Leader Research

MFM is based on over 30 years of cumulative research in the area of effective managerial and leadership behaviors. Using a 20.jpg database of thousands of leaders across many industries, our research is based on solid behavioral science, not armchair anecdotes or selective case studies. The research creates a competency-based model of the common philosophies, beliefs, practices, and managerial behaviors employed by High Achieving Leaders.  These leaders were most highly valued by their respective companies as indicated by higher than average promotion rates.  Why?  Because they get better results than their lesser achieving colleagues!

How Do You Compare to the Benchmark of High Achieving Leaders?

The study proves effective leadership is not accidental. There is a model for effective leadership that exists and it can be modeled by others.

Summary of The Achieving Leader Study

  • Originally conducted with over 60,000 participants (approximately 16,000 managers and 48,000 co-workers with thousands more added over time to the normative databases used in our learning instruments.)
  • Managers are rated as HIGH, AVERAGE and LOW achievers based on a standard called the Managerial Achievement Quotient (MAQ). This allows managers to be compared across companies--including for profit, non-profit, government.
  • Using our validated instruments (the same ones used by MFM participants), each manager's behavior is measured in key competency areas: 22.jpg
    • Management Values
    • Employee Involvement
    • Communication Style
    • Motivation Style
    • Use of Power
    • Empowerment Style
    • Overall Leadership Style
  • Each manager is given a survey and feedback is also gathered from at least three of their direct reports for each of these behavioral characteristics.
  • The study was conducted by Jay Hall, Ph.D., the founder of Teleometrics.

THE RESULTS ARE ASTONISHING! The top achievers do indeed exhibit consistent managerial  and leadership behaviors and characteristics across all aspects tested. These leaders create an environment of involvement, commitment, and creativity that propel their teams to new heights of achievement.

Using the Achieving Manager as a Leadership Benchmark, Models for Management employs a proven effective development process that allows participants the opportunity to observe, experience, learn, model and practice the effective behaviors of High Achieving Leaders while assessing their own behaviors against the benchmark. The model of the High Achieving Leader becomes the benchmark for personal and organizational development.
