Everything rises and falls on leadership
MOVERS & SHAKERS is focussed in working with the corporate sector, building businesses, departments & teams within organisations with leadership coaching, executive leadership training and business leader development.
Without fail, if the principles of Leadership are not followed within an organization, company, government, church, club or other organization - it will fall.
MOVERS & SHAKERS pride themselves in the way in which we come alongside business leaders. Our leadership coaching and business leader development assists in helping business leaders to understand and implement some of the principles of leadership that they have not yet mastered.
Most of all, unlike most leadership coaching and leadership training programs, we believe we have one of the most practical and executive leadership training and business leader development programs available. Many delegates on our leadership coaching and business leader development courses have responded with a new understanding of things they had heard time and again but now say “Wow, I never thought of it that way before”.
One business man we know has an interesting philosophy when he hires on a new person to his team. Essentially his message to the new person is: “I will give you this job for a year, but if you are still doing this job a year from now I’ll take it away from you. If you have taken somebody else under your wing and taught them to do what you do and replaced yourself, I’ll give you another job.”
Can you imagine the different mentality of people within his organization?
No wonder his team is on the way to the top.
We have found that the fashion is changing. 10 to 15 years ago the big buzzword was “management”. I’m going on a management course, I want to manage people. That trend changed around 5 to 10 years ago when people started to focus more on Leadership.
The difference here is that management is about maintaining systems, and there is a place for that, but Leadership is about growing people. More recently, we have found that the trend has changed further, and more and more executive teams are starting to focus on leadership coaching and executive leadership training where the M.D. realizes that no one person has all the skills necessary to take a large organization on to significance.
It’s all about getting the right people around you in your inner circle.
So the dynamic that needs attention is:
- How do these Leaders fit together effectively?
- Do they really know each other?
- How to capitalize on their strengths and be aware of their weaknesses?
- Is there trust and loyalty between them?
Think of some of the most successful leaders you know and you will probably find that they are the ones that most value new knowledge on leadership abilities. They are the ones whose bookshelves are full of books on leadership and autobiographies of great leaders.
Leadership is not learned in a day.
It is a process.
It is a process of daily, deliberate action.
Conference presentations, executive leadership training, business leader development programs and modules can be designed and custom built, as well as ongoing regular focus groups for your leadership team.
