It is widely recognised that engaged employees means a more productive workforce. And as you know an engaged workforce has a direct impact on results such as profits; customer satisfaction; productivity; innovation; absence; turnover all being effected.
Research conducted as part of investors in people, found strong evidence of the link between employee engagement and the behaviour of senior leaders and managers.
The Analysis of the People Survey in 2017 across 8,750 businesses found that:
There is a clear correlation between leadership behaviours, the culture they create and team engagement
Leaders who consistently apply the enablers of engagement achieve high team engagement and their business greater results in the areas I mentioned earlier
Leaders who inconsistently apply the enablers of engagement achieve lower team engagement and lower results
Now let’s consider you landing here today, you may be an excellent entrepreneur who has mastered some of the skills within your industry and have set up your own business, you may have be a great sales or customer service agent who has been promoted to the position of manager,
in both examples you are now accountable for achieving budgets and business objectives through the efforts of others, with this awesome responsibility, you may begin to realise you have never personally had any development around managing and leading people
So your now responsible for a whole bunch of people who may not like you, may be jealous of you, may not trust you, don’t see you as credible, can’t be bothered, have their own demon’s, turn up for work because that’s what they did yesterday, have become terrorists in the business or even worse, zombies, and walking dead, and you have got to manage and lead them to this years victory, good luck to you!
That’s where we step in, our leadership programmes have been specifically designed to provide you with an understanding of the key skills and behaviours of a great leader, Observing and working with great leaders worldwide Kousez and Posner, leadership specialists identified 5 key behavioural traits that the best of the best exhibit everyday, without fail no exceptions
- Model the way – the great leaders show what exceptional looks like in everything they do
- They inspire a shared vision, engaging everyone to want to come on the journey with them, building an enthusiastic loyal engaged team
- They consistently challenge the process, never accepting the status quo, they are innovators, disruptors always seeking new methods and approaches to go to the next level
- They enable people to act at the highest of levels, by providing the right resources and training to achieve world class results
And finally the most important
- They encourage the heart, they build a business that builds people up, not pulls people down, they defend an employee’s self-image, not destroy it, they make people feel special, feel good about themselves and finally they praise and praise again and again
These leaders are ego-less, it’s all about others, no bully boy tactics that suppress performance, they coach, guide, train, mentor and inspire people to achieve the greatness that lies within them and as a result their people reward them with their wisdom, ideas, loyalty, energy, enthusiasm and results, coming together as a cohesive team driving the business forward.
