For your business to perform competitively in the long term the development of your people is business critical. Outstanding leaders recognise this and act accordingly.
Self as enabler
As a leader you believe that the success of the company is best served by enabling your people to succeed. You believe in the coach approach to leadership and removing barriers from your teams’ path so they can perform with maximum effectiveness.
In the day-to-day you are worried about losing control over the business results for which you feel responsible. A lack of coaching skills and training stops you from creating the environment where others can step into that responsibility.
People as route to performance
You understand that your people need the right environment and transparency to continuously perform effectively. You recognise that everyone needs a line of sight towards the company goals to understand how they contribute to achieving them.
On the flip side, you are unsure how to make the time to help develop your people and encourage your senior team to do the same.
Do you see yourself as an enabler and your people as the route to long term competitive edge? Understanding this is the route to sustained business growth, means we can short-cut many of the ways of getting there.
