How the Quest Works

The Leadership Quest  is a chat-based, coaching-like experience that drives meaningful conversations, powerful ideas, and "a-ha!" moments around innovation. This approach enables the rapid, lasting adoption of innovative leadership behaviors in your organization. We do this by:

action

Activity

Completions indicate that users have awareness and understanding of a topic.

reflection

Reflection

Insights demonstrate that users have reflected on their experiences in a way that reinforces the desired mindsets.

Social Engagement

'Likes' and comments tell us that a user's insights are positively impacting others in the group and are initiating social learning.

The Challenges

Leadership development is essential to the longevity of an organization and employee satisfaction. McKinsey surveyed over 500 executives and found that only 10% of CEOs believe their company's leadership development initiatives have a clear business impact. Our Leadership Quest activates leaders to foster behaviors that contribute to developing strong, aligned, and energetic teams who feel valued. The 10 challenges encourage participants to take concrete actions to being responsible, effective, and successful leaders.

CHALLENGES
DESCRIPTION
1

Create an Environment of Trust

Trust is the foundation of effective leadership. This is in no way a once-off – it requires constant trust-building at every step.

2

Champion a Clear Higher Purpose

A higher purpose resonates with all stakeholders and delivers economic and social value. Be the champion!

3

Create Direction

Collaborate to develop a clear and compelling plan. Goals are easier to achieve when everyone is working toward the same outcome.

4

Be Goal-Oriented

Effective leadership is about directing attention toward the solution, and not just the problem at hand.

5

Drive Alignment

Purpose and direction mean nothing without resources. Make sure that all stakeholders understand their roles and responsibilities.

6

Build an Energy

We can't expect effort and performance without an environment in which people feel valued.

7

Track Your Team's Progress

In the real world, goalposts often shift. We need to follow our plans, act when needed, and constantly measure progress.

8

Develop Your Team Members

You have the power to equip your team members with what they need to excel and reach their own goals. Find out how to use it!

9

Take Responsibility

It's easy to point fingers when things go wrong, but trust is built and respect is earned when a leader takes responsibility.

10

Share the Success

We seldom achieve anything alone. Sharing success and giving credit where it's due is the mark of a great leader.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is a 10-day program really effective?

    Yes. Our quests drive the adoption of new behaviors and habits, and the best way to do this is by giving people the opportunity to practice and repeat.

    We do this in the form of a 10-day Quest. Each day, for the duration of the Quest, a participant accepts a bite-sized challenge. The challenge will introduce an offline activity to complete between online sessions. Once complete, a user will then come back and reflect on the experience of trying new behaviors. Reflecting on our experiences drives behavior change in a short time.

  • How do you know the program is working?

    Designated administrators will have access to the "Manage" section of Cognician, which is our reporting dashboard.

    The "Manage" section gives administrators a collection of helpful information about participants and their activities on the platform. For example, every time someone uses a cog (short for "coaching guide", which is what we call a learning module at Cognician), the system logs their actions so that administrators can view the learner’s journey, how many cogs have been completed, and where the team seems to be struggling.

    Administrators can monitor general participant progress and export CSV documents that contain cog completion data and even the insights shared by the users.

  • Do you have other programs besides the Leadership Quest?

    Yes. We have a variety of Quests available, tailored to help you activate behavior change when it matters.

  • Is my user information/data confidential?

    Yes. Cognician adheres to a data privacy model whereby privacy protections overlay most existing security protection mechanisms and the focus and investment is applied across People, Processes, and Technology.

  • Is my company’s information safe?

    Yes. Cognician is trusted by global management consultancies and their clients, based on the team’s practice of privacy and security by design. The team’s main security objective is to continually assess and improve its ability to prevent, detect and respond to cyber incidents using a threat-based risk management approach, and treating cybersecurity as part of its integrated risk management processes.
  • Is there customer support?

    Yes. We provide 24hr support for users. You can email support@cognician.com with any queries. Alternatively, when you are on the platform, click or tap on the chat icon on the bottom right page and the support team will assist you.
