“Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success." ~ Pablo Picasso

"The president of the United States gets 100 days to prove himself; you get 90. The actions you take during your first few months in a new role will largely determine whether you succeed or fail." ~ Michael D. Watkins
It's one thing to land the job. It's another to prove yourself and deliver the results. While walking the talk requires expertise and confidence, it's ineffective without a strategy. The first 90 days are crucial to establishing yourself within your new organization. You want to demonstrate your value while making the hiring manager look good for bringing you on-board. The On-Boarding program is there to help you calm the nerves, set clear and relevant goals, tying them to your vision of success and helping you execute with unbiased feedback and support.
"Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others." ~ Jack Welch
Leadership Development can be the difference between thriving or failing as an organization. Team leads, managers, supervisors, directors, VPs and C-Suite. Each level has its challenges and requirements. Typically, team leads need to exemplify performance excellence, managers and directors tend to use a more strategic approach as they begin to see the big picture, and of course, VPs and C-level executives need to activate their inner visionaries to steer the ship in the right direction, towards green and sunny pastures. Who has the tougher job? Neither. Each person will be challenged to their limits at each stage of the game. Training, coaching and mentoring come front and center to develop the leaders temperament and abilities, clarify values and vision that drive behaviour and performance, and lastly, connecting these behaviours to their impact on the culture of the organization.
"My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence." ~ General Montgomery
Where the Corporate Shrink meets the Trusted Advisor. While coaching is neither counselling nor consulting, it may be what the leader gets out of it. A feeling of confidence and a sense of clarity to make game-changing decisions. Creating a safe, intellectually charged and experimental space where you can hash out your challenges, conflicting thoughts and creative ideas is an extremely powerful yet undervalued asset. Executive Coaching tends to have a more strategic, tactical and big picture approach to decision-making. A trusted, experienced and highly adaptable coaching relationship is required, bringing out the best in the leader, creating the desired impact on the organization and beyond.
