"Leaders are dealing with critical imperatives, including increased stakeholder demands, a hybrid work environment, and the great resignation. A radically new world requires a radically new way of working", said Janeen Gelbart, CEO & co-founder of Indiggo.
Gelbart continues, "Integrating purpose, strategy and action is the only way to address the root cause of these issues but is one of the most difficult things to achieve quickly at scale. There has been a lot of talk, but no concrete way to solve these critical issues. That drove us to create Indiggo’s software solution."
Return On Leadership® is based on four fundamentals:
- Connection to Purpose
- Strategic Clarity
- Leadership Alignment
- Focused Action
To calculate the ROL100™ ranking, each of the four fundamentals was evaluated by a team of experts, leveraging AI, and based on information publicly available to all stakeholders.
Indiggo’s AI SaaS platform is the first solution to integrate purpose, strategy, and agile leadership action at scale. It leverages AI to help managers at every level to strengthen their connection to purpose and deliver on key imperatives, while also reducing burnout. A critical component of the solution is the ROL™ metric, which calculates individual, department, and enterprise level Return On Leadership® scores, to set organizations up for future success.
