With so much access to information today we would be right to think that the workplace should be full of productive people and effective leaders. Yet everyday we see, experience and hear of situations that demonstrate ineffective leadership in the workplace.
Many reasons contribute to poor leadership behaviours however unless the leader is aware of their ineffective behaviours, learning can never take place.
We have been referred many supervisors and leaders from the factory floor right through to top executives to receive tailored leadership coaching programs. The first step of the program is self-awareness and this is achieved by a combination of psychometric assessments, personality assessments and interview coaching.
Once the leader is aware of their undesirable leadership behaviours, learning can take place. Even at this early stage the person will already begin to alter their behaviour. Self-awareness is a powerful tool within itself.
At Careers West, we don’t aim for big changes. We look to create awareness so to empower those involved to have the information needed to make better decisions.
Your leadership problem may feel complicated and have far reaching impacts but usually once the root causes are identified, the way forward is more simple.
It is worth a discussion about your leadership challenge, to see if our approach works for your business.
Remember, nobody goes to work with the intention to do a bad job. That’s our philosophy.
