Teams are critical to the overall culture and climate in an organization and they are the most important factor to an organization meeting its goals. Teams need trusting relationships and agreed upon ways of being and working together. We take a human centered approach to ensuring developing executive teams so they are not only high functioning, but that those on the team wake up each day ready to run with the pack.
Are you busy? Do you got a minute? How many times do you hear that in a day. We work with executives and team members on time management. We will assess how you are using your time now and help you design functional plans that improve your time on task and time at home with family and friends. Work life balance is important to us at LeaderProof, so we want to help you achieve it!
Have you heard this saying- God, family, work? Well, we are not pushing religion, but we do believe the work of executives takes a toll on the mind, body and spirit. Executives must build in time during the work day and also balance work load. There are many strategies to achieving harmony with your job, but it does require a shift in mindset about work and also a healthy reprioritization of an executives time. This includes work habits that limit their effectiveness like micromanaging, not trusting the team and delegating, and over scheduling your time. We are here to help you understand your current state and help to bring you closer to your desired values around how you use your time.
Our jobs as executives demand a high level of accountability. We help you work with your board to understand clearly what you are being held accountable personally as the leader of the organization and what you and your team are being held accountable for the organization's strategic goals. We work with data gathering and dashboards that help you stay on top of your key metrics of performance so at each board meeting you are providing updates regarding your progress and transparently communicating regularly.
Trust is not won, it is earned. There are specific changes in an executives behavior that can engender trusting relationships within the organization, with board members and on the executive team. We will assess the current climate and work with the executive or team on strategies to increase cohesive and trusting relationships on the team or within the workplace. This service can be professional development and growth plan for an individual or overall development throughout the organization.
Every executive must set out time to ensure the board is a cohesive body. It is the executives responsibility with the Chair and Vice Chair of the board to manage the work of the board. This is everything from meeting agendas to conflict resolution. Having productive and respectful relationships with your board requires intentional time and effort so expectations are clear, processes are abided by, and relationships are nurtured regularly through individual and small group meetings and retreats. We also work on effective communication strategies and board meeting management for effective business meetings. We work with our clients to identify and design the program of development that best fits their needs.
