Leadership and Team Development Training Specialist
If you were to split hairs you could say “why have different pages on leadership
and management”, are they not the same thing just rebadged? Personally I think there
are some cornerstones and foundations to management, which need to be put in place
before we focus on Leadership. Putting these in place at the start of a management
career can fast forward the learning curve dramatically to create effective leaders.
I've been managing people and functions since I was 21, when I got my first promotion
in the Armed Forces. Recognising that you may wear your rank on your sleeve, but
it means nothing if you can't inspire people into effective action is the first lesson.
DEVELOPING YOUR MANAGERS
Addressing the Balance
I am always amazed at the sheer amount of money spent on developing front-line staff,
compared to the fraction invariably spent on the manager who has the task of managing
them, day to day. Any training I develop for front-line staff will, ideally, be
delivered in tandem with the management skills required to create the long lasting
change that is required. A key area and competence for me is delivering an effective
Introduction to Management containing the following elements:-
How to coach and train effectively
Getting the best out of your team by giving effective feedback and learning how to
effectively develop the individuals who work for you in their role.
Developing your own management style playing to your strengths
know yourself before you try and understand others, especially in terms of what motivates
you and what may motivate others.
The mechanics of hiring, developing and letting go whilst understanding the legal
implications that will guide your approach..
