' The Leadership Challenge ' Workshop

dine from the menu of learning

Published on April 25, 2017 by admin in uncategorized

Let’s get real about today’s learning; the majority of learning today is facilitated by external means, outside of the workplace, through creative and informal means. People who wish to learn already are – and doing a great job of it without organizational assistance! Learning and Development departments should not kid themselves that today’s learners depend on them! They do not, well almost not!

Love workplace challenges?

Published on March 3, 2017 by admin in uncategorized

According to the leadership research of Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, 94% of direct reports are willing to work hard when leaders very frequently or most always challenge them to try out new and innovative ways to do their work, compared to 5% of direct reports when leaders almost never or rarely challenge people. By responding to the challenge, people feel a greater sense of accomplishment and are more willing to act on opportunities to take initiative and stretch themselves,’ cite Kouzes and Posner, co-authors of ‘The Leadership Challenge’.

change management is not HR

Published on February 16, 2014 by admin in change

Finance Departments are secure in the knowledge that their future is assured. This is not a statement stemming from ego or guesswork, but rather calculating words based on solid and sound evidence, because that’s what their essence is about and credibility is earned from – solid and sound evidence.

creating a leadership legacy

Published on February 6, 2014 by admin in Leadership

Time and time again I’ve observed misplaced loyalty in the workplace which paints a glorious picture of employee-followership, the type that corporate leadership dreams are made of. Yet the dream quickly crumbles into a graveyard of reactive and agenda-driven activity when the leader moves on – why? Because each one of those followers put their hand up to move with the leader to the next corporate destination, showing clearly that they had bought into the person and not the vision, the hope and a better future for all that the leader was creating.

HR does not drive business results – Change Management does!

Published on January 19, 2014 by admin in Leadership

As the years ticked by, a corporate trainer delivered interactive training sessions alongside the best of the best. She applied all adult learning principles, action learning opportunities and up to date, relevant learning methodologies. Her career flourished and promotions followed. Accolades were forthcoming and records beaten. However, something seemed ‘wrong’ as there were indicators of workplace success that people simply chose not to consider. She herself felt the negative impact of these allowing them to eventually wear her down. Something was out of alignment as her career became a source of frustration and anguish.

managers – the meat in the sandwich during corporate change

Published on November 16, 2013 by admin in Leadership

During any change situation in the workplace, managers are often described as having the toughest job. Many think it is about having to work with others to adopt the change, but let’s not forget first and foremost that even the managers themselves must understand and agree to the change – they will be assessing the change against their own personal needs before that of anyone else, as it’s simply human nature. If they don’t agree with the change, there’s next to no hope for them to lead their team through the change.

products alone won’t close that sale!

Published on November 12, 2013 by admin in Leadership

Some would say there is a business case for the application of sales techniques, whilst others achieve sales targets through prioritizing a different business case, one based on human connection. This school of thought indicates that a lack of ability to forge connection with customers can not only have dramatic negative impact upon sales revenues but may also render any sales technique completely redundant. I’m one of the latter, and have observed this in buying habits of myself and others for years on end.

people join organizations but leave their managers!

Published on June 17, 2013 by admin in Leadership

Why are corporations spending so much money, time and effort on new programmes and technologies to increase staff retention when the answer is right in front of our eyes – pure and unadulterated care, growth and connection to purpose and service, the same that keeps we ourselves engaged. Leadership is the one and only global retention strategy I stand by!

understanding the dangers of ‘training’ in the workplace

Published on June 2, 2013 by admin in change

‘We, the general public, stand to experience [this type of disaster] again’, says Mr David Learmount, International Air Safety Specialist, commenting on the simple yet fateful disappearance of Air France Flight 447 along with its 228 passengers and crew into the Atlantic Ocean on May 31, 2009. He based his comment on the profound and daunting reality that a pilot really only flies the plane for 3 mins of longhaul flying time – the remainder is entirely in the hands of computers alone!

Training vs Change Management

Published on January 10, 2013 by admin in change

Recently explaining Change Management to be the process which links the people to the new business performance, one keen listener asked ‘so if my hamburger chain stops making hamburgers and now wishes to sell salads, that’s a change, one that would simply require training – right?’.

is it time to show our vulnerability?

Published on January 6, 2013 by admin in Leadership

All too often I hear protests from the Learning and Development or OD Department – we just get lip service! OR they aren’t serious about us! OR we are not maximised! OR we are only there to accept blame when something goes wrong. With true leadership being optimistic and self-confident, this is surely not the behaviour of L&D leaders but rather L&D maintainers (and disillusioned ones at that)!

Social Constructivism – Changing Together

Published on October 7, 2012 by admin in change

Social constructivism is an emerging approach to change, which encourages change, and learning, through the people, who may be your customers, employees, community etc. It’s easy to identify those who don’t buy into this approach. Observable corporate traits include the desire to maintain control, the degree of closure in minds, a stagnant environment lacking regeneration, a leader who hides behind the people, and lack of communication in change.

Strategic Learning Interventions in Organizations

Published on July 25, 2012 by admin in Leadership

In tough times, it’s often the organizational learning that’s first to go. Learning professionals must now take a stance – must prove that the organization cannot operate without Learning and Development and must show evidence of the results organisational learning facilitates. Sounds like an easy solution?
