Organisations the world over are only as good as the team of people working within that business. The success of the business is driven by the performance everyone. Ultimately the managers that drive that performance are responsible. However, many of the conversations I have with managers on development programmes are about how they can put in to context “What good looks like?”. They seem to fall in to a trap of not delegating soon enough and hindering the development of within teams.  Recently when working with a great group of aspiring managers taking part in a “Stepping in to Managment” [...]

It is hard work managing a team, made even harder by everyone’s different levels of ability and speed to be able to complete tasks. For any team to be a High Performing Team the leader needs to know everyone’s ability. The leader needs to be able to drive them forward to work autonomously and foster accountability. There is a tendency within a wide population of leaders to be disablers rather than enablers. This is done with the best of intentions. Two of the biggest disablers in organisations are: I can do it myself. Have you ever heard yourself say, or [...]

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.

You’re heartbroken! You just didn’t see it coming. You thought things were going so well, but now it’s over, and you’re gutted. You keep asking yourself “where did I go wrong?”, and “what could I have done differently”. And slowly it dawns on you. “I treated them the same as everyone else, and now I’m back to where I started”. It reads like the love of your life has walked out on you.

You’ve done it. You have worked hard on the objectives of your team and made them S.M.A.R.T. Everyone knows what they are and have gone away happy from your 1-2-1 with them. You have gone away knowing what is going to get done and when because each part of the objective has been covered, Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound.
