What do you do when you reach a new level of success in your career, you got the promotion you were striving so hard for, now you’re a leader, only to find that the people you are leading are jerks? Well, not really jerks, but sooo frustrating to lead, how on earth can you get the productivity from them that you need to deliver on your new KPI’s? You would succeed in their role if you were the one doing it so why can’t they? You try everything you can think of that would motivate you and even that doesn’t seem to make much difference.
The good news is you don’t have to work this all out on your own and there are answers to your situation! Many great thinkers, like Marshall Goldsmith, have spent a lot of time working with leaders and studying what works and what doesn’t when it comes to leadership and even more importantly how high achievers can reliably transition into their new role as a leader and using their methodologies can consistently improve their ability to lead effectively.
So if you are looking for a breakthrough in your ability to inspire the best out of others or you have leaders in your organisation that are keen to excel in their role, it’s worth considering whether executive education or coaching may assist you in getting to your goals faster.
