To help improve employee engagement, communication and business success, it’s more than just about the bottom line. It’s about the people.
Hierarchy vs humility
I can’t tell you the story of how I represented my country in an elite sport, or my experiences when I climbed Mount Everest and I’ve certainly never done a skydive. But what I can tell you is how I’ve led teams through being empathetic, human and showing vulnerability. Too often the term “high performing team” comes with an expectation of chest-beating and bravado but when working with diverse and hierarchical teams on complex projects, it’s important for everyone to understand and support each other as individuals. Often this gets forgotten when under pressure but it’s at this point when humility and vulnerability are powerful leadership traits for developing a high performing team.
Developing successful teams
Working with groups of around 10-15 people in your business, Emma runs a half-day workshop to pull together a team and bring out the right reasons for coming to work in the morning. This is particularly valuable when scaling up a small business, after a change in structure or management and preparing a business for sale.
It’s not uncommon for employees to become managers yet not to become leaders. It can’t be assumed that people know how to lead just because they’re technically skilled or have become a manager through promotion. You have to want to lead people and to do the best by them, so it takes time and empathy to develop into a good leader.
Leadership coaching is offered on an hourly basis either as a standalone set of sessions, or as part of a monthly business consultancy mentoring and support package. Here we address leadership skills, impact coaching and how to lead a team from the front.
