A fresh approach to leadership development

A fresh approach to leadership development

Have you heard of authentic, values based leadership? You probably already have a ‘coaching culture’, balanced scorecards and effective working practices, but do you have authentic values based leadership?  Is leadership responsibility in your team delegated to empowered leaders, at all levels, motivating their teams to greater levels of discretionary effort?

“It is clear that the UK is falling behind many of our key competitor nations in terms of leadership and management capability, which is undermining our productivity compared to those competitors. This is having a direct and detrimental impact on UK business profits, sales, growth and survival…. Quite simply, improving leadership and management capability is an issue that no organisation wishing to achieve long-term success can afford to ignore.” (Department for Business Innovation and Skills Report, (2012), Leadership and Management in the UK – The Key to Sustainable Growth).

In the February (page 18) and April (page 10) editions of the NECC ‘Contact’ magazine, I explored some of the leadership factors that influence success.  Over recent months I have continued to run a number of very popular ‘Leadership Conversation’ open programmes for leaders from different walks of life, coming together to learn more about leading people to success. These conversations are ongoing, with the next in York on the 18th of July, which is already full.

In the summer and autumn, I am offering a limited number of bespoke ‘Leadership Conversation’ closed programmes for business.  Conversations last for 2-3 hours, aimed at senior and middle management teams, providing the all too rare opportunity to focus on developing the authentic values based leadership culture of your business.

Recent research has demonstrated that even a few hours of leadership development can have a long-term sustainable impact on performance.  Contact me to discuss your specific requirements, costs and to book your bespoke programme. Or follow me on Twitter @ctimboc1 for more on values based leadership
