Many leaders - executive & senior leaders - don't know how to effectively manage people and in particular develop extended management teams. The result?...it diminishes their leadership effectiveness. The results of this is more keenly felt with small to medium size companies, departments or business units of larger organizations.
If only we could say, "Go forth and do", and then know for sure we'd get exactly the results we want. Sigh...in many cases, it just doesn't work that way. Effective leaders are clued into this reality and therefore ensure needed outcomes are achieved by equipping leaders/managers at all levels.
Are You Satisfied With Your Leadership Results?
...that of your leadership and management teams?...are you personally effective?
If your answer is yes - read no further.
However, if your answer is not 100% YES, I suggest rethinking leadership ...particularly executive leadership - what it means for you and your organization, the purpose and point of it.
There's a lot in the leadership and management development space from entry level to executive that promotes many positive concepts and practices. And yet...I've observed (and identified long ago by Peter Drucker), distinct gaps which have served to undermine leadership potential, organizational and business management effectiveness... and ultimately results and profits.
1 > The understanding and ability to not just lead from the top - but lead throughout
2 > This is Drucker's description of executive management & organizational effectiveness
3 > Leading throughout means you impact the effectiveness or your entire leader/manager team, not just your senior group. This means training and developing all tiers and aligning them to mission, strategy and needed outcomes. *See video to right for expanded explanation.
4 > And all of this has to include a clear understanding of how human behavior - the human experience - impacts what you want to achieve.
5> Ultimately, all of this impacts and is a reflection of an executive's personal, professional effectiveness - or that of a leader at any level.
Our mission is to help you satisfy all 5 without huge consulting fees or complicated initiatives.
What matters most at any level of leadership is getting the most important results. To achieve this requires a fresh view of leadership and management - knowing what "effective" means for your leadership and seeing it as a skilled integration of leading and managing.
So, how can that be achieved?
Our Solution - A System vs. A Course -Which Do You Think Provides More Value?
In collaboration with clients, we developed a framework that provides a repeatable system to marry leadership and people management. Through our 22+ years experience and expertise in human behavior, we've identified 9 key impact areas that if successfully addressed can quickly:
> improve results
> while producing a positive financial impact
> improve the employee experience
> and a manager's competence
The framework addresses multiple critical needs simultaneously.
We formulated the 9 key areas into an easy to use blueprint so each can be addressed in a step-by-step - systematic - and sustainable way... and which can be replicated throughout your organization.
Also, unique to this blueprint, we included financial measurements within each step - that's a minimum of 9 opportunities to improve your "profit-ability" while developing management skills.
Note: If not addressed, these 9 areas are also where businesses will continue to lose money and provide the greatest opportunity for employee issues to develop.
Commonly, when thinking about senior or executive leadership training and development, people look for courses such as a senior management training program, an executive leadership course or seminar, or an executive leadership certification program. Just about every client I've worked with initially said, "We don't need another "program or course", we need something different that can get meaningful, sustainable results." We agree!Learn about the 9 areas and where they fall within the blueprint.
Note, this is level 2 of our executive development offerings. Level 1 is personal effective via our The Disciplined Executive offering.
