Chief Executive Officers
As CEO, you want your team to work hard, meet their targets and create new opportunities. This is how you will be judged.
You want your managers to create the environment where people innovate, create, and dazzle. You want your place of work to be buzzing with ideas. Those are your values.
Learning and Development Leads
As the L&D lead in your organisation, your role is to equip your managers with the skills they need to inspire and motivate those around them to achieve success. That is how you will be judged.
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?”
We have all had experiences of when bad managers have left us stressed and unhappy.
What is worse, those managers can cause people to leave (costing you money), can stifle innovation (costing you money) and can make teams work ineffectively (costing you money).
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.
Good leadership creates engaged staff which lead to happier customers and generates more revenue. That sounds like a WIN-WIN-WIN to me. So why wouldn’t you want your managers to be inspiring and motivating?
See below for some of the solutions I can offer.
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.
