TALOOB is a new REVIEW SERVICE for professionals designed by scientists and experts giving individuals insights to their work and social skills based on a sophisticated algorithm. TALOOB invented a certification designed to validate leadership skills from the Teams’ perspectives
TALOOB sets out to bring leadership assessment to the work environments of the 21st century. We think that leadership needs to be evaluated by those who are being led – the firm’s employees. We think that leadership skills are an essential element of human resources – leaders need to know how they are seen by team members and how they compare to leaders worldwide. We think that owners and executives need to know how their leaders do – when hiring and for professional development. We think there are a couple of great company review websites out there but nothing with scientific quality. Leadership skills that employees value and deeply embrace do not only benefit the workforce, but the entire business. The thorough and sustainable engagement of employees reflects their relationship with a leader and how closely they connect to their company. Key elements of these relations with leaders and organizations include employees’ attitudes towards achieving workrelated goals and efforts to go the extra mile for the betterment of their company. Engagement and dedication are intimately tied to leadership that provides a supportive environment, the right tools for work, and an optimal work experience that promotes wellbeing and enhances productivity. Where there is great leadership, there is sustainable engagement, productivity, and improved financial outcomes. But what is great leadership? How does it look like? And how can it be accurately gauged? Countless studies have aimed at pinning down a range of psychological and social skills leaders need to possess or develop in order to become successful managers. In today’s globalized, networked, digital, and culturally diverse economies, however, the skills that employees value and recognize vary widely. Hence, what psychometric tests determine to be effective and universally recognized skills, employees might find less than optimal or even discouraging, putting their engagement and commitment to the firm at risk. TALOOB therefore sets out to reverse the assessment of leadership skills, introducing the social relational paradigm of leadership evaluation. Not managers’ individual skills and capabilities, but employees’ perceptions and evaluations of these skills are what matters most! Only with TALOOB, employees can give ingenuous accounts based on first-hand experience and related to a concrete organizational environment and specific task domains. TALOOB thus provides leaders with accurate social relational feedback on their leadership skills, enabling them to grow and constantly evolve – not only their own abilities, but also their employees and their organizations. With TALOOB, leaders can establish close albeit efficient relations with their employees, paving the way for their engagement and dedication. Sustained engagement can only materialize where leaders are themselves interested in making an effort to grow the business, where they ensure wellbeing of their employees, and have confidence in their subordinates while trusting them with their respective assigned tasks. Such engaging leadership also includes good management of their area of work, in addition to making changes for mutual benefit of employees. Superiors who empower their juniors automatically generate well engaged employees which in turn boosts the general productivity of an organization. Scientific studies have shown that successful leadership is essential for employee satisfaction and that employee satisfaction positively affects the performance of the company. Only firms whose leaders oversee teams of contented employees can make the most of their resources. Moreover, successful leadership is essential for leaders’ reputation and future careers.
