1) Transform Managers to Leaders
Leading a successful business requires a constant search for strategies in order to get an edge on the competition. There is increasing evidence that corporate coaching is one of the most powerful ways to develop people and add to performance. A study of Fortune 500 companies who used coaching showed an increase in productivity by 53%, an improvement in working relationships and a reduction in conflict.
Is your business over managed and under led? Are your managers great people but not yet great leaders? For business to be successful, managers must lead with vision. But in order to transform from good to great, they must also lead with wisdom and insight. Wise, insightful managers will not only maximize business potential, but in the process, separate their team from the competition.Transform Managers to Leaders is an intense, insightful, two day training course designed to supply managers with the tools they need to move people to action. A hammer does not always provide the best results, particularly when a screwdriver is necessary, and the reverse is also true. Therefore, managers need a toolkit with a variety of tools and the awareness to choose the appropriate one for the job at hand:
- Lead Yourself; be a leader worth following
- Lead Others; build relationships
- Learn to Follow; empower others to lead
My Gold Standard
My coaching revolves around the premise that leadership is influence and therefore, you must become a leader worth following. Leadership is a skill that can be trained, learned and sharpened but it is not for the faint of heart. If it was easy, everybody could do it. My model teaches that change is an “inside job” and it begins with turning the mirror toward yourself and making adjustments based on an honest assessment of what you see. To successfully lead others, you must first master the skill of leading yourself. When you lead yourself successfully, you create willing followers that are ready not only to accept, but also embrace your leadership.
2) Build a Winning Culture
A winning culture is not created by words posted on the wall or hash tagged on social media. A winning culture is the shared attitudes, actions and behaviours that bond people and allow them to engage as a high performing team. A healthy culture can increase employee engagement, productivity, and ownership and help identify, hire and retain the best people.
Build a Winning Culture is an intense, insightful, one day training course that helps you build not only your culture, but also your people. A winning culture will dramatically transform your people into a highly functioning team that is ready and able to Rise Above the Crowd.
Build a Winning Culture by identifying:
- What is the difference between accepting and building a culture?
- What is the Power Dynamic and why does it matter?
- What builds a culture?
- What breaks a culture?
- What are the pillars of a Winning Culture?
Success is never an accident and a Winning Culture ensures excellence.
3) Leadership Scorecard
“What gets measured get managed.” Are you looking for a tool to grow and assess your leaders? My Leadership Scorecard measures key attributes based on your leadership profile.
Leaders can only grow once their self-awareness increases. Can your leaders accurately assess their strengths, weaknesses and blind spots? Do they know what others think of their leadership skills (or lack of)? Do your leaders know exactly what attributes are used to evaluate their success? Once completed, the scorecard provides a map for your leaders to arrive at their destination while providing the tools to manage the bumps and detours along the way.
4) 1 on 1 Coaching
1 on 1 coaching moves you and your team quickly and efficiently from good to great. 1 on 1 conversations allow me to walk alongside and increase your self-awareness and emotional intelligence so you can effectively solve problems.
It’s been said that most of our problems “come with hair on top”. Drama at work slows your team down and contaminates the space. My 1 on 1 coaching helps you move people from the “disease of me” to the “fuss of us” where they can become a team of high performers.
