“How simple and easy to implement leadership techniques can dramatically increase your team's performance”
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
What does “winning” mean to you? Is it outperforming your competition? Is it surviving a tough business climate? Or is it achieving the goals you want to achieve?
There are those who get buffeted about on the sea by the storm and those who take control and decide their own fate.
Life is 10% what happens and 90% how we react to it. Now more than ever we need to concentrate on our own and our team's performance. There are times when our leadership truly matters; as the saying goes: "Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm."
In tough times, the temptation is to strip everything to bare bones, and that's good instinct. Many people think they don't have the luxury of spending time on developing leadership skills. The problem is leadership is absolutely necessary. In tough times we need more leadership, not less. It's leadership that will separate the winners and the losers.
Register now for our 60-minute training session: 5 Keys to better leadership, things anyone can implement right away so you can lead your team to win.
Over the years we've had over 2,500 people come through this free workshop and for the first time we're bringing it online. Register now.
We've got a mug in the office that says:
Being a manager is easy. It's like riding a bike. Except the bike is on fire, you're on fire, everything is on fire, and you're in hell.
If it's on the side of a coffee cup it must be true, right?!
This probably brings to mind some of the frustrations you have right now or had in the past when managing people. People can be your greatest asset or they can be your greatest frustration. They can take all your problems away or they can generate problems you should never have had in the first place. The trick is to know how to lead them toward one and away from the other.
Don't think that because you have people issues you've done something wrong. Being successful in business only serves to magnify the problem, because as you grow, you have to deal with greater numbers of people, whether they're employees, customers or suppliers. The better the business the more problems you're going to have with leadership.
We find so many companies struggling with hiring great people, maximising the performance of the people they already have, and preventing good people from leaving the company. Not to mention dealing with trouble makers, toxic behaviour, or just typical office politics and drama. Even day-to-day, normal, uneventful, run-of-the-mill people management can be incredibly complicated and frustrating. The size and shape of problems that people seem to be able to generate is infinite.
Managing people is not easy and why should it be? People can be messy and unpredictable and most managers have never had any training in it, or the training they have had wasn't effective.
We speak to business leaders every day who are keen to improve their leadership, they've read all the right books or do the training courses but struggle to stick to the changes for more than a couple of weeks. We've worked with thousands of people across hundreds of businesses and we find common threads that people encounter when trying to manage people.
Well, there's some good news for you because we've found that leaders are not born, they are made, and we can show you how.
There are many great training companies out there but there are also some not very good ones and you won't know the difference until after you've spent your money. That's why we provide these free training seminars, we offer 100% money back guarantees and our programmes are engineered for lasting results.
Some of our competitors work on the model of sitting participants in lectures for a couple of days or a week, learning academic theories and leadership models, then assigning essays and exams. No joke. Do you think that gets real business results when those people go back to work?
What you're not going to get from us is a bunch of psychobabble, or academic theories that are difficult to understand. Ideas that might be true but are way too complex to put into practice in the real world of everyday business. What you will learn are techniques that are simple, easy to understand and easy to apply that lead to real results. Most businesses start benefiting as soon as they leave the seminar.
Over 2,500 people have attended this free seminar, from hundreds of different companies, and every single one of them has taken something away that can benefit them in their business.
If that sounds interesting to you then please reserve your place. We have live, in-person, events where you can come and learn skills that will benefit your business immediately, have lunch on us in a 5-star hotel and network with other local business leaders, or if you can't make any of the upcoming dates, you can access the online version. All of this is completely free of charge. So please, sign up right now.
