Are Your Leaders Effective?
Are your leaders effective? I hate to be the one to tell you this, but the training industry in North America is a $60 billion dollar a year industry. That’s $60 billion with a “B”. What does that mean to you? Well, if you’ve ever sent front line supervisors or middle managers to training in order to increase their effectiveness, then you’ve made a contribution.
That’s okay of course if you received the ROI you expected. But, in my experience ‘fly by night’ training classes are not always effective…
I’ve discussed in previous articles how leaders are the conduit between you (the CEO or Executive) and your people. If they aren’t effective, the team’s performance (and your reputation) diminish as a result. You can grab a copy of my latest book Operational Empowerment to gain further insights on how this conduit influences your business.
My point is, when it comes to company leadership the only measure that matters is effectiveness. Are your leaders doing what needs to be done when it needs to be done, while motivating and engaging staff in the process? If not, sending them off to a classroom training session in a nearby city may not be the answer.
In this week’s video I share a few tips on how to increase leadership effectiveness with no cost (just your time). Watch this video – it will be worth the next four minutes of your life.
If you have questions on how to introduce these ideas into your business or team, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, I’d be happy to chat.
