Executive Coaching and Training

Do as I say!

Most people have had experience in the workplace with leaders who utilized any of the above three leadership styles (and many other disrespectful and wholly ineffective strategies). These types of leadership approaches were built upon any number of antiquated ideas on how to effectively lead groups of people across all types of work environments.

Changes in the make up of today’s workplace, and across society in general, now place a greater premium on leaders possessing a cross section of skills that allow for a more authentic, flexible, trusting and inclusive connection with their teams.

And yet, on a much too often basis, individuals are elevated into positions of leadership within their organization based on the fact that they possess a history of technical competence in their role. It is just assumed ( a faulty one at that ) that their technical competence will translate into leadership competence. The assumption that “anyone can be a leader” remains alive and well, minimizing the realities of leadership as a distinct skill set, literally setting people up to struggle finding leadership success.

There is a better way to help prepare the next generation of organizational leaders!!!
