Most LEADERS grow a business or get promoted. But very few ever get TRAINED.
Every leadership team needs certain basic skills to lead well. Fundamental skills like how to run effective meetings and hold people accountable are critical to getting good work done.
MOST LEADERS NEVER GET REAL LEADERSHIP TRAINING.
Instead they cobble together a style, picking up what they can where they can. They work hard and mean well but they're playing an intense game without really knowing how. And just like playing football without ever learning how to block and tackle, it's a chaotic, dangerous, and painful way to to work. And it's a lot harder to win.
I HELP TEAMS QUICKLY LEARN & APPLY THE BASICS.
Leaders learn faster and learn better when they can learn by doing, practice on real world problems, and get ongoing coaching and feedback.
The teams I work with often desperately need systems and process to help reign in the chaos and stabilize the flow of work and information. We start by identifying infrastructure projects to build or refine important systems and processes. Together we identify high value projects that quickly start to create new efficiencies, eliminate waste and relieve frustration.
We build awesome solutions that fit THEM. We apply the rules of process science and human behavior to help them become a better version of themselves, not a more miserable version of some other company's red-tape, corporate, binders-full-of-rules-just-to-use-the-bathroom nightmare.
The projects themselves are a perfect opportunity to upgrade how they work and work together. While they're building critical infrastructure they also learn how to run efficient meetings, to keep track of what is and isn't happening, and how to have the hard conversations they might have been avoiding.
THE R.O.I. IS SIGNIFICANT.
And it can't just be measured in money. Teams that are good at the fundamentals don't get stuck fighting fires every day. They focus on improving quality and solving problems for customers. They train and develop their own people. They build the systems and processes that build the organization. They work hard but they also work smart, so their hard work works harder.
Leadership teams that are good at the basics WIN, a lot more easily and a lot more often. They have more fun. They build the kind of companies they always wanted to work for and they become the kind of leaders they always wanted to be.
START WITH THE BASICS.
Build something great by focusing on your Infrastructure, Leadership & Management, and Teams & Culture.
