Leadership that drives performance

Empowered leaders inspire higher levels of performance

Overview

Many organisations need people who can inspire their workforces to embrace a common purpose and shape a high performing organisation fit for the future. Data demonstrates that while leaders believe this is a priority, their people are often not up to the job.

Performance challenges

Why are we slow decision makers?

When a business has a true sense of purpose, it knows the rules it plays by – its values. If employees don’t understand those values, the next time they need to make a decision, they’ll pass it up the line to someone who does. And the business slows down.

How do we get our people onside?

When companies scale rapidly, they face an influx of people who know ‘what’ the company produces, but not the ‘why’ or the ‘how’ behind it. When they understand the whole story, then the culture becomes fertile and special.

How do we get our leadership onside?

Executive teams may spend months pondering a new direction for the business but expect everyone else to ‘get it’ within minutes of their announcement. Then they move on to the next goal assuming their team leaders will just get it done, without challenge or complaint.

How do we avoid a blocking culture?

For senior leaders to be enablers rather than blockers they have to step back and reflect on their own position, and how they should change to make this happen. That’s incredibly difficult to do without leadership development.
