High performance teams have a few things in common that set them apart from other teams. First, high performance teams are highly committed to their goals. They are willing to put in the extra work needed to achieve success. Second, high performance teams are very effective communicators. They work to ensure that everyone is on the same page and that all team members understand the goals and objectives. Finally, high performance teams are very cohesive units.

How Accurate is Insights Discovery?

By |2022-09-26T13:04:32+01:00August 1st, 2022|Articles, Leadership|Comments Off on How Accurate is Insights Discovery?

Insights Discovery is the “re-discovery of yourself”. The journey toward self-awareness has begun. After going through certain everyday experiences that led to learning, adapting to the environment, and growing, you might have noticed that you're changing more slowly than your previous self. This change may be favourable after a happy experience in life and negative after a traumatic one. The biggest evidence of the fact that you’re changing is you saying to yourself, friends, colleagues or relatives some common phrases like “Childhood was the best era of life; school age was better than college age “etc. That’s Insights Discovery [...]

Endurance verses (and/or) Resilience

This morning I went for a run, I do this two or three times a week (two if I'm being totally honest), I had a guided run on and the coach was talking about endurance in order to go the extra distance. Being able to run that bit further than I have on other runs. It got me thinking about the many conversations I have had recently about Resilience in teams, and the workplace, and looking at organisational health the word Endurance has come up more often than Resilience. There is no doubt that the last few years have stretched [...]

Your Leadership Story

By |2022-09-26T13:06:04+01:00June 22nd, 2021|Articles, Leadership|Comments Off on Your Leadership Story

A hearty mix of life experience, self-awareness, self-management, a few good theories to stand by, and a sprinkling of external factors - and a Leader is made. This tells us that leadership skills can be learnt and should be practiced well. It is useful to know about all the leadership models, theories, and behaviours, but it is practicing that develops strong leadership. Putting things into action, noticing the results, make changes to what you have done accordingly and then trying it again. Leadership should be a journey, not a destination. We hear a lot about leadership these days in [...]

By |2021-10-11T12:22:00+01:00April 23rd, 2019|Articles, High Performance Culture, Interpersonal Skills, Presenting|Comments Off on The Boy Band Technique

I was recently running a Presentation Skills workshop, which is one of my favourite courses to run. Seeing the change that people can make when they receive just a little feedback is very rewarding. During this workshop we were looking particularly at how people co-present in pairs or in groups. I introduced the workshop delegates to my theory “the Boy Band Technique”. Cast your mind back to the late 90’s, for those of us that have that memory, for those a little younger I should still be able to explain this one. In the late 90’s there was a [...]

There is no doubt about it, managing people is hard! No matter how much aptitude you have for leadership, and despite how much you might enjoy leading a team (or not), aligning employees to contribute in a way that is meaningful to your business is a challenging job. The complexity and difficulty of this grows with the size of the team and the impact of their contribution on the businesses strategy and goals, and ultimately it’s up to you to supervise, guide, coach and develop individuals for high performance in this setting. Managing their technical contribution is often straightforward, and [...]
