With The Tech Leaders 2.0 Accelerator Programme
Simon Sinek once said "100% of customers are people. 100% of employees are people. If you don't understand people, you don't understand business."
I totally agree, and this is the basis upon which we work
We believe that leadership is not just a qualification, but a product of the mindset and behaviours we display on a daily basis to either help or hinder our team to achieve what we want them to.
If you want to be successful in your role and in business, you cannot do it alone. There is only 24 hours in the day, and you are hopefully sleeping and eating and seeing your family for a decent amount of those.
Your role as a leader is to leverage the resources you have with the time you have to achieve more than you could by you doing all the work.
But it can be hard when you have started your working life as the technical expert. When you are amazing at what you do, stepping back as a leader can be harder than you think.
You have to trust those people in your team to do it well, to do it right, to do it the way you need it done.
But that doesn't always happen.
-People might have skill but they may lack belief in themselves.
-They may lack direction and focus and not know what to prioritise.
-They may not feel comfortable in the team.
We could say "Well they are here to do a job", but that won't cut it because it is those things that will prevent them from doing their job.
And your job, as the leader is to remove the barriers, give the clarity and grow the confidence and skill of your team, the people around you and your stakeholders.
But if you are more comfortable with the computer than with the humans in the room, that makes things tricky.
It can lead to a lack of confidence in leading your team. It can mean that there is a lack of trust and growing conflict and uncertainty.
It may mean that your peers, your colleagues and your board don't listen to you, because you lack the communication skills needed to inspire and to get your point across in a way that creates practical action.
And that is where I come in. My passion for helping Technical Execs to grow their impact through communication, collaboration and conscious behaviour has led me to helping many experts to develop the leadership, impact and influence they need to get the roles they want, create the trust and performance in their team (even if they are not a people person), and to influence across a wide range of spheres.
Our Tech Leaders 2.0 Accelerator Programme™ works in three areas - Think Be and Do. We help you to show up as a more influential and confident leader that does not have to be the loudest person in the room.
We utilise the Team Performance Engine™ methodology to breakdown the elements leaders need to work on to create the performance that they want.
Developing the mindset of a leader
Understanding different personalities, behavioural profiles and what makes people tick
Understanding the concept of leverage and how this enables your team
Creating the vision you need to inspire your team to follow you and deliver the right performance at the right time
Articulating your vision and spreading the commitment that you feel across the whole team
Recognising your own behaviours and understanding the impact that you currently have
Exploring perspectives and uncovering the truth of your own influence and impact
Designing the impact through learning the right behaviours to display, creating trust and igniting the capabilities of your team
Developing your skills as a coach
Delegate like a pro so that you have more time to focus on the strategy rather than staying in the weeds
Stepping back and trusting your team
Create a collaborative culture where your team are engaged with you, the cause and each other
Developing A Leader's Mindset
Developing the mindset of a leader will help you show up at the right level in your business
Thinking like a leader means that you are more strategic, conscious and collaborative and ready to create positive change
Growing Influence & Impact
Leadership is not about just gaining a qualification. It is about how you show up and the behaviours you display that either help or hinder your team
At Think Be Do we focus on practical application of the skills you will learn so that you can implement with ease
Step Back & Lead
In order to being able to step back from the weeds of the day to day workings, we need to trust our people to deliver at the levels you need
Doing less and delegating more is one of the most important things that a leader can learn
