Transformation leadership is made possible through the Worksmart holistic view of leadership development training.
At WorkSmart we deliver services and programs that are designed to make a substantial difference to company culture, leadership quality, overall engagement, talent attraction and retention and business performance.
There is a real paradox blooming in corporate America today and it associated with an employee's beliefs and their unwillingness to step up and hold fast to their vision and values in the face of adversity. It is easier or more convenient to back off and go along with the pack. Our leadership consulting addresses passion and courage and prepares you for emotionally charged conversations.
A lot of organizations have a publicly stated value or desire about getting better at collaboration. Breaking down the silos, working better together, being more inclusive, seeking more diverse opinions - all are examples of how companies go about articulating what they mean by collaboration.
In our work, we frequently hear leaders talk about the struggles they have with their teams. To some extent, teams should struggle, since they are often working on some pretty tough issues that seldom have easy answers. Our leadership development program addresses the key reasons why teams are unable to be productive.
Can confrontation be a "leadership tool?" Or is it simply seen as a tactic to intimidate an individual? Why is confrontation viewed differently than open, honest communications? Or is it? Why is it viewed in some quarters as "a negative behavior?" These are important questions to consider as you develop your leadership strategies and communication skills.
One of the Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership described in the book, The Leadership Challenge, is the practice of Challenge the Process. The practice refers to the active search for new opportunities to grow, change and innovate and the actions of experimentation, risk taking, generating small wins and learning from mistakes.
Let's face it, when it comes to actually thinking and speaking differently we are challenging our entire life's programming. We want to believe in the quick fix, the one course or one expert that will change things for us in a day or less. If only we could find a way to make the quick fix work...and painlessly too.
For 25 years The Leadership Challenge has been the most trusted source on leadership training and this has shaped WorkSmart's leadership framework.
Leadership is an observable set of skills and abilities. When our leadership consulting partners Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner first set out to discover what great leaders actually do when they are at their personal best, they collected thousands of stories from ordinary people
When asked about their biggest challenge, most managers cite the never-ending battle to get their employees to accept change. WorkSmart’s leadership consulting addresses involving people in planning and decision making can help with the acceptance of change.
Our leadership workshops discuss how everyone who has challenged the process has experienced "walls" in their lives. If we are growing, walls will spring up to slow us down and divert our attention. Whatever the situation, a wall's sole purpose is to be a "speed bump." It is about "slowing you down so work doesn't change too much." Comfort zones create complacency and resistance.
Our leadership consulting is heavily based upon responsibility. Remind yourself the rights you enjoy can only be secured through your own responsibility for them. Shift your sights away from everyone else and back to yourself.
Our leadership development training illustrate that cynicism is debilitating. It affects the entire tenor of the situation. What should be an upbeat environment ends up becoming confrontational and subdued. It impacts everyone's enthusiasm
Truly communicating in transformational leadership is a much different matter than merely giving a speech or sending a management edict. It is one thing to tell people what to do and how to do it but quite another to inspire them.
We're in trouble. And it is of our own making. It should be no consolation to us (in business) that there is a character crisis everywhere. Right now, the high beams are targeted on corporate America, and we are very ashamed of what we see.
