From an individual’s point of view
- The training course was great, but then I returned to a pile of work and never got to implement anything. I just went back to doing things the old way to simply get things done.
- I know what I should be doing but have no support to get it done.
- I feel overwhelmed and demoralised.
- How can I get support for all the “little things” that come up?
- I’ve never lead a team before and was only responsible for my own work.
- It’s hard for me to have tough conversations with my team. These folks used to be my peers and now I’m the leader!
- How can I make this transition?
- There are hundreds of hiccups I face on a daily basis that I have no idea how to handle. I don’t know what I don’t know.
- Where can I get focused support or coaching to get me through those challenges so I can get my work done?
- I want to advance in my career and know there is a lot I need to learn.
- How can I build my skills on an ongoing basis to be a better leader so I can get ahead faster?
- I know how to do the work. I just don’t know how to manage people, do performance reviews or motivate my team. I’ve never had to put work schedules together!
- I can’t keep asking my manager for help – he expects me to know this stuff and figure it out. How can I get support?
What are your aspirations and how can I help you?
From a team/company point of view
- Our new front-line leaders and managers are floundering, even though they were great technical workers.
- How can we get better results from them now that they lead teams?
- We’re resource-strapped:
- How can we support new leaders without spending a lot of money?
- Safety is a huge concern:
- How can we increase safety and productivity?
- We spend lots of money on leadership training programs.
- Why isn’t it enough? Are we wasting money? How can we improve ROI?
- Our leaders drive the company’s performance:
- How can we ensure our people make better decisions for the company?
- We’re seeing good workers fail when they are promoted to leadership, and in turn, their teams are unhappy:
- How can we increase morale and reduce turnover?
- When teams don’t work well together, it puts the company at risk:
- How can we decrease our risks and increase productivity?
- We can’t afford continuous training:
- How can we support our leaders on the job, on a continuous basis, when they need it most?
- Communication issues are leading to inefficiencies and safety concerns:
- How can we help our leaders have the difficult conversations and better communicate with their teams?
These are the types of problems that together we can solve.
