Anyone who is a manager knows we have to function within a certain amount of ambiguity and deal with complex problems on a regular basis. At times it can be very challenging and overwhelming to balance your role as a manager (allocating resources, overseeing systems, achieving targets) with your role as a leader (employee engagement, motivation, and productivity).
To add another layer of complexity to your role, you most likely have a team of individuals who are working in silos and unable to resolve conflict without getting you involved. Am I getting warmer?
Although you may hold the title of manager, if you want to be successful in balancing the divergent needs of your organization, you will need to be skilled in both leadership and manager competencies. But you don’t have to figure it out all on your own. We are here to help you.
Take our short survey below to see if you are ready for the next step!
Have you ever been part of or led a great team? A team that utilizes everyone's individual strengths and causes the team's performance to improve? A team where productivity increased just to keep up with the other team members? A team where you love coming to work and every day is an exciting adventure?
Inspiring and motivating people to be committed and engaged in their work is the one value in the equation that most often gets neglected. When we lead with the heart, we invest in our people and empower them to do their job.
Without the heart, your team will struggle in achieving its full potential. To help you integrate the heart into your existing systems and processes we offer customized workshops (virtual and/or face-to-face) that have built-in supports to assist you and your employees apply their newly acquired skills back on the job. We can customize a workshop for you on any of the following topics below.
Setting a vision and direction for my team
Managing change through people
Increasing employee engagement and empowerment
Creating a mentoring culture
Developing emotional intelligence
Creating resilient and agile teams
