Would you like to improve the productivity
and performance of your people and teams?
We're on hand to help you solve your people challenges with our talent management support services
Executive Coaching is aimed at inspiring leaders to make the desired behavioural changes to transform themselves and the people around them, with the knock on effect of increasing bottom-line results and individual performance.
Executive coaching equips and encourages leaders to overcome challenges by helping them to develop self-awareness of their behavioural patterns, cultivate awareness of the impact they have on others and how others perceive them - both the positives and challenges. We work together to capitalise on their leadership strengths, bridge gaps and acquire new leadership strategies in managing themselves and others.
Effective executive coaching can also be a seriously powerful tool in helping executives take what they learn back to the workplace and apply those lessons with their own teams.
Senior Management Team Building
Senior managers and leaders are under immense pressure to achieve results for their organisation. Both shareholders and employees demand vision, strategy, leadership and results, but it's not always easy to achieve without investing in the continued development of those senior teams.
When senior management teams do experience difficulties, it's usually down to a lack of common goal and purpose, poor communication and collaboration or integration with one another. In many cases, leadership teams are geographically dispersed, which can also lead to 'siloed thinking' and a growing lack of cohesion and understanding of the team's needs.
By taking the time to develop and work with your senior managers to help them understand and share their goals, drives, motivations and attitudes you can help them to gel better with each other. They then work in a more effective and collaborative way to deliver their company objectives and to manage and motivate their own direct reports and employees to achieve more.
Nowadays, it's an inefficient organisation that relies on subjective, gut-based recruitment and selection procedures to bring top talent into their business and promote top performers into the right roles.
Truly forward thinking companies have already discovered the benefits of having a talent assessment system in place to verify and evaluate their people decisions with greater accuracy and far better results.
Choosing the right talent assessment is critical to making sound recruitment, development and promotional decisions. Without this kind of data, your people decisions can only be based on partial information, personal preferences or the subjective (and often biased) opinions of others.
Whether it’s your management team that’s not working collaboratively, or your project team that lacks cohesion and direction, team development can be carried out at any level of a business or organisation, with fantastic results.
As a result of investing in effective team development, members will set stretching goals, will be naturally motivated to achieve those goals and will do so through greatly improved collaboration and self-awareness.
Helping team members to understand each other better and to work together in a more harmonious way can have a huge impact on the way a business is run, the atmosphere of the workplace and the bottom-line financial results of your organisation.
If your teams are having difficulties communicating and collaborating, it's often useful to bring them together to solve the roadblocks within a group facilitation session. Getting a clear and objective view of your team's situation is made easier with a third-party to help you review and regroup.
Facilitation is a powerful tool for improving team performance, where understanding, empathy, skill and coaching are necessary tools for success in building team cohesion.
It gives your team members the opportunity to work with an expert team facilitator to direct, reframe and challenge the beliefs and opinions of the group. It also provides an objective and 'safe' environment for the team to explore their development areas and improve their understanding of each other.
Left unchecked, conflict can destroy a team. Dealing with conflict effectively means understanding the people involved, their motives, values and perceptions.
Empathy and mutual understanding are both vital to create the right environment for positive change. Continued support is essential to fix the problems caused by the conflict such as low team morale, lack of engagement or decreased productivity in a team.
Individuals who are able to work through conflict become more likely to succeed in the future. The best strategies for resolving the conflict really depend on the situation and the drives and motivations of the individuals involved. Importantly, it’s often easier to bring a third-party facilitator to mediate, especially when leadership teams are involved.
