Train your managers to become effective leaders

Organizations require leadership at all levels, as well as accountability and ownership at all levels. I know this, because I have conducted several training programs for managers and the one thing that most senior management emphasis on is wanting people to act with accountability and commitment.

The unfortunate part is that we are always short of the right people. We lack leaders.

There is a hunger for leadership everywhere. Organizations seek leaders at various levels. Managers are expected to act like leaders. They are looking for people who exhibit leadership qualities.

The sad part is that organisations expect people to act like leaders without giving them any training on leadership. It’s like expecting  a doctor to treat a patient without  medical knowledge. If you want to develop leaders you need to train them to become leaders. Yes, leadership is a learnable skill.

To succeed and thrive in today’s changing times, you need leadership that is effective, which means a leadership that gets results, engages people, and a model that is easy to replicate and apply at various functional levels of an organization. The question is, can we achieve this? Can we develop leaders? The answer is Yes, we can. Leaders are developed, nurtured, coached, mentored, and in some places molded, to fit into different leadership roles. And as they advance and move higher up the ladder, they are better equipped to develop more leaders who will move with them, work with them, and collaborate with them to move everyone forward. 

And the best part is that it’s possible. As the saying goes, a leader’s job is not to build the business, but to build the people who build the business. Organizations that achieve these feet can move people more quickly, achieve their goals more quickly, innovate more effectively, thrive, and change even when the tides are not in their favour.

I’m not here to teach you what type of leadership style to adopt – we don’t do cookie-cutter nonsense around here. No, I’m here to help you unleash your inner leader and take charge like the superhero you were always meant to be. You’ll be inspiring people left and right, and the best part? You’ll do it all with a smile on your face and a skip in your step. 

So, if you’re ready to learn leadership, I’m here to assist you in learning, mastering, and applying it. I will act as a catalyst to help you discover your inner leader, unleash it, and learn to stand out so that others will no longer ignore your leadership. I’m talking about being effective in whatever roles you play, whether it’s in a start-up, a small business, a medium company, or a large corporation. You’ll learn to influence people effectively and become an inspiring leader. As I previously stated, leadership is a skill that can be learned if you are willing to unlearn and relearn a few things about leadership.

My job is to take you beyond what type of leadership style you can adopt that is best suited to the position you hold. I will help your to unleash your leadership potential. I believe each and every person has the capacity for incredible leadership over their own life. And once you reach a level of self-mastery, you can step into the leadership role of nurturing others. The journey of leadership starts with personal leadership and progressing to leading people, inspiring people and positively influencing the people around you.

So come on, let’s dive headfirst into the wonderful world of leadership. I promise it won’t be boring – we’ll have so much fun, you won’t even realize you’re learning valuable skills. And who knows, maybe one day you’ll be the leader of the pack, teaching others how to rule the world (or at least their corner of the office).
