Leadership, Management and Team Development
Participating in our tailor-made programs will enable you and your team to strengthen key relationships and make a greater contribution towards building and sustaining a culture of trust and accountability.
Leaders, it’s not your job to be liked – it’s your job to ensure that your organization is successful.
Managers, it’s not your job to be liked – it’s your job to ensure that the people who report into you do what they’ve been hired to do so that the company is successful.
Teams, it’s your job to ensure that the company is successful.
Everything we recommend you learn is observable, measurable and doable. We hold that success depends upon more than knowing what you need to do in any given situation, it depends upon you doing it. In the hustle of daily activity, your embodied skills – your automatic responses – matter more than your ability to follow a checklist. The pace of events in most conversations involving networks of people is too fast for your mind to think things through; your automatic reactions have to be the right ones. Your embodiment of the practices we introduce you to will significantly increase the likelihood of you reacting effectively and smoothly in real time.
The goals and net effect of participating in one of our programs include increased effectiveness and efficiency attributed to people:
- Being less tolerant of their own and their team-mates non-performance and non-conformance... and acknowledging that it’s quite good fun and a lot less stressful operating this way (more accountability).
Coordinating more effectively:
- Wasting less of their time waiting for stuff that should have been done by others.
- Wasting less time by minimizing work-arounds (avoiding the folks who are incompetent and/or unpleasant) and overburdening the people who do a good job and are fun to work with.
- Spending more time doing the things that they are supposed to be doing. Operationally they’re getting to do the job they were hired to do, the job that they’re good at and that they like doing. It’s a win-win situation – good for them and good/profitable for the organization.
- Start and finish meetings on time and leave satisfied that the meeting had been a good/productive use of everyone’s time.
- Working in a more trusting, less stressful environment.
- Continuously innovating and growing the business.
- Proactively addressing breakdowns and opportunities.
