S2 E10: Essential Components to Building Successful Leaders

HR-in-15 Interview with Claire Chandler: Essential components to building successful leaders

“How much more effective, more productive, more profitable would a company be if instead of planning for the dip, they planned for the dominance?”

In this episode, Claire Chandler, a business advisor and President & Founder of Talent Boost, discusses how business leaders can improve their preparedness for success.  Business is often a revolving door of constant change in leadership and management.

Business owners should be able to gauge how prepared a leader is. They should be able to understand why they’re in that role, what needs to be accomplished, and the methods required to increase collaboration. The first six months make for an intense first impression, which proves immensely important for HR to smoothen this transition for newly acquired leaders. Claire informs us how direction and clarity are the essential components in allowing leaders to be successful. She speaks to other key attributes to becoming a better leader, and one that’s more prepared to deliver success.


Highlights Include:  

  • Ways in which HR can bridge the gap between new leaders and their employees
  • Internally promoted leaders received little to no handover from HR
  • It usually takes an allotted amount of time for a new leader to get acclimated, which generally comes with a fall in productivity
  • Even after being appointed as a leader, the work that needs to be done is immense
