Leadership, Facilitation &
tools to energise and
extend your leadership...
Good leaders aren’t born knowing innately how to lead. Leadership
landscape has shifted. Leaders are not only expected to develop strategy,
co-ordinate resources, plan changes and keep an eye on performance. The new
role of leaders differs dramatically from the old mental models of managing.
They need to know:
How to infuse
enthusiasm and inspire commitment
How to shape
shared vision and mobilise energy
How to have
connective conversations that motivate
How to be
culture-creators, team-builders, perspective-takers, meaning makers,
change-makers, coaches and facilitators
More than ever
before, staff these days demand challenge, latitude, self-direction and
self-responsibility. They want to be facilitated and coached, not coerced,
bossed around and told what to do.
command-and-control culture is definitely past its use-by date.
Pace-setting leaders with driving, directive styles push too hard and
create stress, strife and septic work climates.
facilitation is immeasurably more constructive than directing and
controlling. It gives leaders a new and healthier way to relate that
significantly improves productivity, relationships and the way people
‘warm-up’ to their jobs.
facilitation bring out people’s creativity and talent. It generates
motivation, commitment and taps into deep -seated needs we all have to
challenge ourselves, achieve things that matter to us and accomplish
results we can be proud of.
Leaders who act as
coaches and facilitators put people first. They’re dedicated to building
long-term capability in teams and individuals, knowing that outstanding
outcomes will follow. They:
results through good group processes that encourage teams to work in with
each other and think together
Bring out the
best in people by building on their strengths and helping them to overcome
barriers to high-achievement
to continually learn, adapt, develop new skills to face new challenges and
take committed action
Act as guides,
helping individuals and teams do what they have to do in ways that
maximise contribution, cohesion, harness collective ideas and energies and
have fun doing it too.
Many leaders who’d
like to adopt facilitation and coaching styles lack the know-how and
confidence. A big step to support this transition is equipping them with
simple tools and practice opportunities to learn how – and that’s what our
Facilitation and Coaching skills clinics are designed to do.
