As a leader, how consistently are you getting the results you want?
When it comes to leading for results, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach or answer (no matter what the business books tell you).
Leadership is an intensely personal calling; so much more than a job title, or another box on an organization chart.
Successful leadership is a series of choices, made each and every day.
A choice to explore how your current approach may be getting in the way…
A choice to develop powerful new strategies and tactics…
And, for a leader who isn’t getting the results they desire, the choice is simple:
Right now, will you choose to grow a mindset of accountability and influence, so that you are better able to lead for results?
Have you fully committed to your leadership role?
For many leaders, it can be hard to leave the past behind…
… particularly when you’ve arrived in your leadership role thanks to a track record of strong individual performance.
Leaders are often amazed to discover how often and easily they’ve been falling into patterns of thought and behavior that no longer serve their success.
On one level, they know that “what got them here won’t get them where they’re going”, and yet they just can’t hold back.
So we help them get out of their own way.
How? By elevating self-expectation, and developing capabilities to flourish in their role.
In our experience, it’s not enough to think “I am a leader” – long-term success is all about actively LEADING in each and every moment.
When leaders shed legacy behaviors they are fully able to dive into the opportunity ahead of them.
Put simply: MINDSET is a choice made each and every day.
How clear are you on the boundaries of who does what in your team?
When a customer’s needs aren’t being met, how often is it just easier to get things done yourself?
How many times have you avoided holding one of your people to task for fear of upsetting them?
How many of your people are doing just enough to get by, while your highest performers are burning the midnight oil?
A quick search for “leadership accountability” yields around 80 million hits!
Yet the symptoms described above are endemic in practically ALL organizations, at any size.
It’s not knowing that counts, it’s doing.
We help leaders develop practices, processes and systems that drive individual accountability.
Because accountability drives performance.
And performance drives results.
Put simply: ACCOUNTABILITY is the heart of leadership.
How are you going to help this person be successful AND make sure your needs are met at the same time?
You’ve probably heard it: “leadership is a contact sport.”
And, while that is undoubtedly true, for successful leaders, reality goes a little further…
Because leadership is an insight sport.
Said differently, leadership is all about your ability to know what makes people tick, and how you use that to mutual advantage.
We help leaders use in-the-moment influencing approaches that center on two key questions:
What does this person need from me right now to be successful?
How do I help this person act in my best interests when I’m not in the room?
And, though those questions may appear simple, arriving at answers is the work of every moment, every day.
Because influence is what happens when you choose to lead.
Put simply: INFLUENCE is the only thing that makes leadership possible.
When it comes to leading for results, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer…
Can I be completely honest for a moment?
Here’s the thing: I have no idea where you are in your leadership journey.
If I did, I’d be hitting you with a sales pitch right now for a course, or a book, or a webinar, or… Well, you get the picture…
So we’re in a double-bind: I don’t know where you’re at AND there’s no one-size-fits-all answer.
But I do now one thing: there is definitely a one-size-fits-you opportunity to strengthen your leadership mindset.
And I’ll only be able to work out what that looks like when we talk.
