Are you the boss of your own company or department?
Are you managing a team of employees?
Are you expected to know all the answers?
What happens when you don’t?
Who do you turn to?
You cannot be expected to know all of the answers, all of the time and what’s more, you must not be too hard on yourself if you don’t. There are always answers, it is just a matter of finding the right ones and implementing them properly. Often gaining a different perspective on a situation will help to resolve it.
This is where executive coaching for leadership development and the improvement of people management skills comes in to play. Executive coaching from Inspiring Potential comes in the form of a series of one on one telephone conversations, geared towards raising an individual’s self awareness and their performance in the workplace. These conversations enable the individual to tap into their inner strengths and reveal their true potential.
It is difficult however, to achieve this without the trust and support of your subordinates. You can feel ostracized, unable to gain valuable insight into what’s actually going on, on the ground or at the levels beneath you. Our training methods give you the tools you need to be able to acquire the trust and support of your work force and turn them into a dynamic, highly focussed and motivated team that are working together, with you, toward your common goals.
Great people management or interpersonal skills are vital to the success of any company. Effective people managers bring out the best in their co-workers – and create a vibrant and productive work space that is both inspirational and nurturing.
However many of today's managers have been promoted from within and just because someone is good at their job or they are a time-served member of staff, does not mean that they will necessarily make a good manager of people. In fact, in practice many of them don’t.
Great people managers are very different to great employees. In many cases they have an entirely different skill set. Sure, it helps it they’ve done the job themselves and know about the company structures but this inside knowledge can be picked up quite quickly. The extra knowledge and motivational people skills can’t be picked up in house, but they can be taught.
