driving high performance through lead

Driving high performance L.E.A.D.

“Leadership development isn’t an overnight fix – it’s an ongoing process”

Leadership in the workplace is centred on working with others to bring a business to life. Achieving goals, inspiring others, and creating a productive collaborative environment. When leaders work effectively, they get extraordinary things done in organisations. They bring out the best in those around them and set an example to others by aligning their actions with shared values.

The continued success of any organisation lies in how well they develop their management team. There are some common pitfalls of leaders:

  • Feeling pressured to prove that they “know it all”
  • Thinking that they need to show everyone they are in charge
  • Wanting to change everything overnight
  • Avoidance of dealing with problem staff
  • Taking no responsibility when things go wrong

Being a leader or people manager can be scary for some. They may have been internally promoted as they excelled in their previous role and suddenly, they have stepped into the unknown. They are thrust into the spotlight and as well as trying to commercially drive their team forward they need to have a grasp on HR issues in areas such as grievance, return to work and people management. Additionally, they need to lead their new team from day 1 and communicate a vision to inspire teamwork and trust.

Without training, they will not be effective and understandably people will start to question why they are in the role and if the department is future-fit?

How do they learn their skills?
