believe that there is just one route to creating a leading organisation
and that is through its people.
of our clients operate large manufacturing plants, others use premium
business processes or significant technologies. But it is
their people who develop the new ideas and create leading-edge processes
and products. It is people who operate the plants, manage
the processes and services, and it is people who market and sell.
People make it happen.
We believe that people are inwardly motivated to do their
best. However, this can sometimes become clouded by pressures, old habbits
and a fear of The unknown. Our
strength is to create organisations which enable people to
achieve their full potential. We develop managers to treat people as
they would like to be treated.
We call this People Focused Leadership
We ask people at each organisational level - business,
function, department, team, individual - to consider these five key
Giving direction and involving
Building a positive spirit
Being open and honest
Having and showing care and respect
Developing and coaching
We explore, develop and embed the real meanings of these
key activities and their context in the organisation. And we show
how they can enable people to extend their aspirations and achievements.
Why People Focused Leadership Works
Consider this question. Think about the worst
managers you have had, give this a moment: what did they do, what didn't
they do? Now think about the best manager you have known, give this
a little longer: what did this manager do?
Our experience is that the difference would not be in
technical knowledge or functional competency but in the way the different
managers related to people, developed and maintained relationships, the
way they 'focused' on them.
This is what People Focused Leadership is about.
We run the programme as an experiential workshop, with knowledge
inputs to develop managers to be leaders who focus on people.
The work leads to managers learning and practising specific behaviours,
actions and language which they need to use to be People Focused
Leaders. This programme has been developed extensively to
identify the key aspects which managers need to be aware of and
concentrate on to be People Focused Leaders. It is run in
such a way that the learners identify the titles and definitions
that are appropriate to the organisation.
