I work with people in any business or organisation who want to become outstanding managers and leaders – the sort of people who get results but are also the ones that others love to work for.
They may be new managers, recently appointed or just about to take up a new role. Or they may have been managers for some time but they want to develop their skills in specific areas.
In many cases, the people I work with are highly trained professionals who are excellent at the technical aspects of their jobs but need more help with the ” people management ” side, which requires skills they haven’t yet developed.
They want to bring out the best in themselves and in the people who work for them. They want to treat other people well and they set high standards in the way they behave but they need to develop their management and communication skills to allow them to do this more successfully.
They may also lack some confidence and self – belief and need to build a ” success mindset “ which will help them overcome any barriers to achieving their goals.
If you can relate to any of these comments, then I can help you:
“ I’ve just become a manager and I’m not sure how I’m meant to behave now. I want to be friendly with people but, if I am, will they still respect me and do what I need them to do? How do I develop the right management style? “
” I’ve got some people who aren’t performing as well as they should be. I don’t really know how to handle it without them getting upset or defensive about it. How can I speak to them without it all blowing up? ”
“ Now I’m a manager, I seem to be working all hours but I’m still not getting done all the things I really need to do. There are so many interruptions and people wanting my time, I get to the end of the day and I haven’t done half the things I meant to do when I came in. “
“ There are some people I just find it hard to deal with. Some I get on well with, but some just seem to be on a different wavelength. I can’t seem to communicate with them. What can I do? ”
“ I hate running meetings. They take up so much time but we never seem to get anything useful out of them. Is there any way of making them more effective? ”
” I used to feel much more confident than I do now. I knew what I was meant to be doing and I was good at it. But now, I feel under pressure all the time. I’ve moved right out of my comfort zone and everything is new and difficult. Now I’m responsible for other people and they seem to look to me for leadership, but I don’t really know what’s expected of me. “
” I’ve got some really difficult people on my team. Some have been here for a long time and don’t want to change or learn anything new. Others don’t seem to be very motivated. What’s the best way to handle them? ”
Don’t depair! These are all problems I can help with, through in – house training or by individual coaching.
