Leadership and management
The role of the leader is to set the tone for the organisation by establishing a strong vision, values and mission as part of the strategy.
Leadership is so critical because no mission, commercial or philanthropic, can be achieved without other people or without using the attributes of a great leader to keep you focused and on track and moving ahead. We provide a mix of services to support the leadership and management of organisations. We have developed the following sessions to help entrepreneurs and leaders be more successful:
Discovering Your Values
Our 'discovering your values's session involves using a range of tools developed by us to help you identify your goals, rank them and turn them into behaviours that will set your business apart. Values need to be more than words in a document or even on a wall, they need to be used every day, they need to be 'real'. Acting on the values should make someone a superhero in your organisation, ignoring them should make them a villain. This session will help you rank your values and put in place the systems and training to support their use every day. Once you know your values they can become part of your marketing to help differentiate you from your competition (see this story about Fedex).
Setting Visionary Goals
Running any organisation is like going on a journey and if you don't know where you are going, how can other people help you get there or be inspired by the excitement of the destination.
In our 'setting visionary goals' session we can help you by using scientifically proven techniques from drawing to action planning to create inspirational goals and a vision for your business. As Simon Sinak so powerfully writes in his book "start with why" you need to know what you want to achieve for sustainable success.
"Knowing your WHY is not the only way to be successful, but it is the only way to maintain a lasting success and have a greater blend of innovation and flexibility. When a WHY goes fuzzy, it becomes much more difficult to maintain the growth, loyalty and inspiration that helped drive the original success" Simon Sinek , Start with Why
As a leader and/or business owner it is critical that you understand yourself. Over two sessions we will help you confirm what makes you special and how to work in your passion. Research shows that the more people work in their passion, the more successful that they are. You'll know when you are working in your passion because time will pass without you noticing and it will not feel like work, you will be focused and in the 'zone' as sportsmen say. We aim to help our clients maximise the time you spend doing what will make you most successful and happy, your passion and these sessions are the start of this process. At the end you will have a clear passion statement, you can see what ours are here.
