Developing leaders is a cornerstone of business success.
At Business Whisperer, we believe leadership development and organizational change are intimately woven together. When we help our clients create positive improvements in leadership, powerful organizational change happens with real, measurable results.
Leadership development is an exciting process. We create optimized performance for your business by nurturing and cultivating the leadership talent in your company.
A central question in effective leadership development is: “What is the quality of supervision of our people?”
Did you know that more than 75% of the success of any individual in a company is due to the quality of relationship that employee has with their supervisor?
This established management fact is why it is critical to have high quality leadership – supervision and management – at all levels of the company. Without it, your company will not perform up to its full potential.
The Business Whisperer Leadership Development Process
Our Leadership Development Process is broken down into two main components: individual development and team development. Having both individuals and teams function at their peak potential is crucial to achieving long-lasting business success.
Individual Leadership Development and Executive Coaching
Driving quality leadership with supervisors and their circle of influence is where the rubber meets the road.
First, individuals need to be placed in positions to match their talent and abilities with their job title and roles.
Then, each leader is guided to look at who they are and what they really want to do – including their career and how they would like to contribute to the company.
In our executive coaching process, we often ask leaders:
- What improvements would you like to make in your role, as well as at the company?
- How would you most like to contribute to the company?
- What might be in the way of leading your business life optimally?
- What is in the way of you being the leader you want to be or could be?
This is similar to the process that any quality football team would take in analyzing a football player to assess what their capabilities are, and what they would like to achieve in creating a path of success.
The process is confidential and personalized. And, as neutral third parties, we are able to provide a level of perspective that is often difficult for people inside the business.
Group Leadership Training and Development
In addition to personalized leadership development, group training in leadership principles can enhance a team’s progress.
Frequently, knowledge sections in a company are hidden from other people. They become siloed, with pockets of needed information not being shared.
How can you create a knowledge integration process where the important elements of knowledge in a company are shared in a wider pool?
Our goal is to help people grow and become excited and energized about their exchange of information. This shared information can lead to better problem-solving, and better problem-solving leads to action steps to obtain higher levels of achievement.
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) can be developed and written around these very specific achievement items. Then, the process of the team leadership can be bolted together to create specific outcomes that the company is committed to achieve.
Management Team Development
In addition to group leadership training, our work in a company is often focused on supporting and improving the management team.
We look at these questions as benchmarks:
- What is the management team functioning like?
- How does it function?
- What are the strengths and weaknesses of the team?
- What could be done to improve the team’s effectiveness?
- What collaborative team processes can we develop that would integrate the knowledge of all team members?
Answering these questions effectively, with our support, can pay huge dividends in achieving targeted results.
