We have all had experiences of working for poor managers, managers who suck the life out of work or who have left us stressed and unhappy. Poor management and poor leadership has been shown to lead to lower productivity, poorer staff engagement and higher turn-over of staff. This hits both the top line AND the bottom line.
I believe that very few people choose to be bad managers, most have never had the tools to be successful. With support and training, they can become inspiring managers.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could enjoy our work? Wouldn’t it be great to go into work feeling motivated and inspired? Wouldn’t it be great if you knew you were going to be appreciated and valued?
Great managers create those environments. Great managers are made not born … they need guidance and support to develop those leadership skills.
However, with limited budgets, finding cost-effective solutions that work is always hard. How do you create learning solutions that deliver measurable outcomes and justify the expense?
This is why my first questions will always be:
“What is the problem you are trying to solve?”
“What are the indicators that you need to address?”
“Is it a lack of innovation? Is it poor communication? Or something more obvious such as a lack of retention?”
Leaders are made not born. Investing in your future leaders develops a culture of excellence and innovation. I provide training and coaching that helps your future leaders acquire the skills they will need to succeed.
“In a 2004 survey by Right Management consultants, 86 percent of companies said they used coaching to sharpen skills of individuals who have been identified as future organisational leaders.” – Excerpt from “What An Executive Coach Can Do For You”
If you have ever been stuck in a dull day-long workshop, then you will understand the need for proper planning and execution.
I provide facilitation for those of you who have Away Days or Strategy Setting workshops. I try to make them fun, invigorating and productive.
