What I do
I will support you to build trust by developing these 6 fundamentals:
- Communicate: The ability to lead open and honest two-way conversations, to listen without judgment and land the messages that count. Say what is on your mind, be transparent about your intent, talk straight, disclose your feelings and emotions, confront reality and face into the difficult issues. Listen, no matter how hard it is to hear what others say. In a way that is engaging, clear, simple.
- Collaborate: The ability to build strong, lasting, trusting relationships, to seek out talented people with diverse strengths, to want the best for, and with, others. Share why you do what you do, why it matters to you to bond a team and stakeholders at deeper and more meaningful levels. Proactive, respectful, generous
- Confidence: The ability to see the good in oneself and others, to offer support and belief where it is absent. Address barriers to team performance or engagement quickly. Role model behaviours you want to see in others. Find and celebrate quick wins. With strength, balance, care.
- Challenge: The ability to identify blocks, blind spots in thinking and behaviour, the willingness to look at what gets in the way of creativity, action and results. Get the right people around you quickly and the wrong ones out. Honest, purposeful, kind.
- Creative thinking: The ability to stimulate ideas, invite new perspectives, come up with opportunities and possibilities, the spirit of continuous improvement. To harness the contribution, creativity and diversity of a group. Provide the space for others to step up. Involve them in creating the what and how so they have a stake in and commitment to the journey of change. Open, unbounded, free.
- Critical thinking: The ability to weigh up alternative solutions, look at issues and opportunities in balance, encourage and facilitate healthy debate with stakeholders before making a clear call. Pragmatic, neutral, grounded.
I work with individuals and teams to develop the 6 fundamentals for head and heart leadership. For more on the workshops I run please click here:
