Leadership and Management Skill Building
This client approached Ros to work with them to develop their sense of what successful leadership and management skills are. Ros focused primarily on raising their self-awareness and developing tools and techniques to aid them in managing and leading their team. She also worked on their influencing and communication skills to improve their relationships with their peers, team and senior management.
- Raise awareness through the use of MBTI Step I and II and internal 360 degree reports.
- Conduct a skills analysis to identify short falls and create a development plan to close the gap.
- Work on the components of emotional intelligence to learn how to regulate behaviour and learn ways to adapt and change state.
- Develop strong internal and external partner and customer relationships to increase circle of influence.
At the end of their time together, not only was the client being recognised as an improved leader and manager, but others in the organisation were asking them to mentor and share the communication processes they had introduced into their group.
In a second piece of work with the same client, Ros was engaged to help them deliberate over an offer being made by an external company to join them as a director. Ros encouraged them to reflect on what this job could bring, consider the size and culture of the organisation to determine if it was a good fit, review the benefits and downsides of taking the position, and whether the job fitted strategically with their career aspirations such as an ultimate goal of being on a company board. The client accepted the position.
