executive & managers mentoring

This is our top tier program for executives and managers of larger organisations. We work with each individual to improve their leadership and management skills, to promote growth in their career and to ensure they are using their skills to their full potential. We will work with one, several, or all leaders in your organisation on an individual or group basis.

leadership programs and business management training Newcastle

The toughest role in any business is that of the middle manager. You have to focus on delivering the objectives of the business owner, plus manage the personalities and tasks of people who report to you. And simply being in a management role does not necessarily give managers the skills required to manage their team effectively! While some managers are ‘natural leaders’, others are brought up through the ranks of the business from technical roles. While they may be brilliant in their area of expertise, many find that being a manager is a different ballgame.

Managers need specialised people skills, excellent communication, and a clear management strategy. Most importantly, they need the confidence that they have the right and responsibility to manage their team.

Too often managers are unsure how to manage difficult behaviours, and instead of addressing these, they choose to do nothing, hoping the situation will rectify itself over time. This condones poor performance and can result in frustration for team members who are performing well.

In our Habits of Effective Managers Leadership and Management Program we discuss why managers must manage their team, outline the results of not managing teams effectively, and give step-by-step instructions to encourage the best performance from your team.

We’ll discuss the very real difference between leadership and management, and the difference between being assertive and micro-managing. Attendees will leave with The 4 Habits of Effective Managers that are essential for building a great team and successful business.

The 4 Habits of Effective Managers are:

1. Relationship (they know their people exceptionally well)

The key to building great team relationships is communication. We’ll show you how to conduct weekly One on One Meetings with direct reports to facilitate excellent relationships with your team, improve performance, build teamwork, and reduce workday interruptions for both the manager and the employee.

2. Feedback (they constantly talk to them about their performance)

We’ll discuss why managers don’t give feedback, why praise alone doesn’t work, and most importantly we’ll give you step-by-step instructions on how to give feedback effectively. Then we’ll practice it until we get it right!

3. Coaching (they constantly ask for more performance)

The purpose of coaching your team is to encourage improved effectiveness. We’ll show you how to get your team involved in setting goals for the business and following through until those goals are accomplished.

4. Delegation (they delegate exceptionally well)

Delegation creates future leaders and managers in your business, and gives your team authority and accountability. It also gives you time to work on your business, not just in it. We’ll discuss why you need to delegate, what to delegate, and how to delegate.

Our workshops are highly interactive.  The rules that we set at each workshop are that we are all responsible for our behaviour, that we agree to participate, we agree to encourage other’s ideas and that we must have fun. The more fun we have, the more we remember, learn and implement. Also, it’s one of the Points of Culture in our business so to not do so, we will be in breach!

We are pleased to offer flexible delivery methods to suit the needs of your team and your business.

“This is the best workshop I’ve ever been to. There was lots of valuable information and the presentation was very professional.” – Craig

“I can now identify different behaviours and personality types, and know how I react can affect an outcome. The workshop was interesting and engaging.” – Patricia

“I learned how to respond and react (or not react) to situations. I got most value from information on positive thinking, and understanding other peoples’ truths.” – Kirsty

“Excellent presentation. It reinforced the way I look at my own behaviour, and being able to stop worrying about behaviour that’s out of my control and influence. Also the realisation that I can improve my skills outside of work. It also gave my enthusiasm a boost.” – Michael

“It was valuable to understand the “iceberg” and that the values, beliefs, environment etc of others are not visible to me, but only the other person’s behaviour is.” – Samantha

“I loved the no-BS approach. Loved the positive focus and owning our individual behaviour, being the best I can be and expecting that from others.” – Marnie

I also know what it means to be a member of The First Team, and how that fits into overall objectives.” – Norm, Mai-Wel
