According to some management surveys, more than 75% of the success of any individual in a company is due to the quality of relationship that employee has with his/her supervisor. Whether or not that number is accurate, no one denies the importance of the supervisory relationship.
Because developing leaders is the cornerstone of success, we at Business Whisperer offer leadership training and executive coaching for effective leadership throughout the organization. Business Whisperer’s leadership development program focuses on individual and team development.
The Business Whisperer Leadership Development Process
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 that match their talent and abilities with their job title and roles. Just because someone is good at a certain task, doesn’t mean he/she is cut out to supervise others doing that task.
In our 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 your having your desired business life?
- What is in the way of your 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 to attain for people inside the business.
Group Leadership Training and Development
Frequently, knowledge sections in a company are hidden from other people. They become isolated, in “silos” 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.
Measurable 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:
- How does the management team functioning?
- 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 help to share/integrate the knowledge of key team members?
- Answering these questions effectively, with our support, can pay huge dividends in achieving targeted results.
