You Don't Have To Be Superman Or Wonder Woman

“We manage things, we lead people.”

 

This is one of Richard Branson’s favourite quotes on leadership and accurately sums up the difference between management and leadership. Many people are capable of managing things, but it’s the people bit that trips them up.

The image of leadership also creates issues. As soon as the word is used images of high profile, influential personalities spring to mind. People that most of us simply cannot compare ourselves to. Leadership is a must for every manager, but not the type of leadership displayed by these world famous characters. It’s need to be relevant to their circumstances and the circumstances of their organisation.

Leadership can be learnt. It is the leadership team’s responsibility to motivate every single person within the group, whether that’s in sport or business. Using the Sporting Difference leadership programmes, you will learn core skills such as:

 Communication Skills

Resilience

Motivation Skills

Purpose

Discipline

Self-analysis

The programmes keep leadership simple and achievable by focusing on a common sense approach that anyone can learn.

Core programmes include:

Management Styles

How a manager’s approach impacts the performance of the team and understanding how to manage their style to get the best out of each team member.

Communication Skills

When to tell, when to listen and how to understand what drives every member of the team. Communicating with internal teams, customers and/or suppliers.

Motivation

Considering the relevance of established theories, how to discover individual’s motivations and practical actions managers can take to increase motivation.

Skills Development

Ensuring the team’s skills are continuously improved to achieve today’s targets and be ready for tomorrow’s challenges.

Every programme is designed to complement our clients business objectives and can be delivered in different ways. Typically the approach is broadly in line with one of three proven methods:

Training Only

If you have a robust process for embedding training within the workplace to ensure behavioural change, we can deliver training modules and support based around internal implementation activities.

Training & Implementation

As well as the delivery of the training, we employ a variety of support activities to ensure implementation. These can include a series of email or video messages which refresh and reinforce key areas in the months following the programme, as well as activities such as video calls/conferencing, podcasts, review meetings and telephone coaching.

Academy Development

This method takes many of the elements of training and implementation and totally embeds them into the fabric of the business. This requires us to work closely with your internal teams to ensure the programme is available to existing staff and new recruits on an ongoing basis. In essence, we hand over the full programme for you to use internally.

If you’d like more information then please call us on 02392 007025 we can explain more in a short conversation than can be learned from several hours of online exploration.

The programme Steve designed and delivered to our staff was the most successful in my 6 years as National Sales Manager. The 15% uplift in company performance was due to his innovative content and impactful style. Even our most experienced and cynical staff bought into the attitudes, concepts and skill improvements presented. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve as a sales or management trainer.
