We deliver a leadership programme, which combines deep personal reflection which will provide you with a clear framework that will enable you to lead your people in a principled and highly effective way.
This programme works. It works because it is based on 30 years-worth of research into what leaders do to create sustainable high performance. It is principle based and will deliver results. Through a series of diagnostic tools we can pinpoint and design a programme that will enable you to lead in a principled and highly effective way.
We work with individuals and growing organisations who need help to improve communication and personal effectiveness in all levels of organisations. Simon particularly specialises in helping business owners achieve their vision through identifying key areas they need to develop. This enables leaders to be set free.
The steps to creating an environment where those you lead can thrive, and you can feel supremely confident that you are leading the right way!
I. KNOW YOURSELF Highly effective leaders start with themselves. They are self-aware. We will take you through a powerful development tool, which will help you to understand your own perceived strengths and weaknesses. Knowing yourself enables you to understand your preferences as a leader and strategies to communicate with those you may find hard to reach.
II. KNOW THE MINDSET Highly effective leaders operate with a set of beliefs and attitudes that enable them to challenge and support the teams in equal measure. Knowing these beliefs and attitudes will lead to a significant impact on you and the way your team will be led. By completing this reflection you will understand the steps you need to take in order to operate from a place which will maximise your team. This is the place of high challenge - high support.
III. KNOW THE SKILLS Highly effective leaders maximise performance and the potential of the people they lead by following a simple four-step process. By reflecting on the process, you will be able to identify "stuck points" in your leadership. This process will identify the skills you need to develop. When combined with the mindset of high challenge - high support you will lead your team with increasing reassurance, which will mean a more productive team.
IV. KNOW YOUR MOTIVATION As you journey through the steps you will establish your own patterns of motivators that you can use to think about what is important to you as a leader and to refine your approach still further. Knowing your own motivation will mean you become more attuned to what motivates those around you. This will lead you to get the best our of your team and develop them and fulfil their potential.
IV. KNOW HOW TO ADAPT Highly effective leaders adjust their style and approach according to a particular situation. Being too fixed in your ways, or too inconsistent will have a negative impact on team members and their performance. Knowing how to flex your style will unleash the potential of all those you lead.
