Dr. Gerald Bell is spot on when he says “Leadership is the only sustainable advantage in any business. Everything else can be copied.”
Smart executives know that strong leadership teams are a competitive advantage. They are critical to attracting and retaining talent, getting results, leading change, and enhancing the company’s brand. The problem is that most companies don’t have enough strong leaders, and many of their leaders struggle to engage and lead today’s changing workforce. The results can be devastating with the failure to attract talent and retain talent, failed change initiatives, dysfunctional cultures and poor business results. We get it. We have coached and trained hundreds of leaders at all levels to develop their leadership skills and impact their businesses.
Executives with the heavy burden of responsibility for successfully leading departments, divisions and companies should not have to go it alone. There is too much at stake. They deserve a trusted advisor to coach them along their leadership journey. A coaching plan includes assessment of leadership style, identifying the areas of development that will make the biggest difference, and regular conversations to make sure goals are achieved and the executive experiences less stress, better results, and more fulfillment.
Smart executives know that their own leadership is critical, but not enough to lead a successful business. They must develop leadership teams that will attract, develop and retain talent, get results and grow the company. We have trained hundreds of leaders and managers to develop the six practices that separate “the best leaders from the rest” with rave reviews.
Developing all managers in a company using the same leadership model creates leadership alignment (everyone on the same page), a high-trust culture, which becomes a solid platform for change, when change is required. Leadership alignment, a healthy culture and agility are tremendous competitive advantages in today’s dynamic business world.
