THE LEADERSHIP-RELATIONSHIP TREND ANALYSIS: A REFLECTIVE CONSIDERATION
A common business practice of a trend analysis is the widespread practice of collecting information and attempting to spot a pattern. Trend analyses involve the collection of information from multiple time periods and plotting the information for further review. The intent of this analysis type is to spot "actionable patterns" in the presented facts or information.
There are two main reasons for this analysis:
First, the Revenue and Cost Analysis which is useful for “examining for inaccuracies” and to see if adjustments should be made before the results are released for general use.
Second, there's the Investment Analysis where a trend line is created based on “historical analysis.” This helps to predict future changes and to detect signs of impending change.
As a leader,
YOU ARE THE COMMON DENOMINATOR IN ALL YOUR RELATIONSHIPS.
So, what are your trends?
What is the cost of being in a relationship with you?
What is the investment of a leadership connection to you?
What are your relationship trends? Patterns? Cycles? And Outcomes?
Are there inaccuracies of dismissiveness from you of others when matters don’t go your way?
How are people impacted, influenced, inspired, informed, inhibited or intimidated through your leadership relationships?
What does the residue look like (risks and rewards) when others experience conflict and oppose your views?
How are people treated by you and how do they view themselves when they encounter your leadership?
