|Independent Advisor/ Mentor
The task of a CEO/GM/Director can be very lonely, as he or she works towards the goals set by the Board of Directors or parent company.
Members of your key leadership team are critical to this process but these leaders are deeply involved in safeguarding their own personal future and protecting their teams, often before considering wider interests.
We can provide a non-partisan independent senior experienced “2nd brain” to interact with the CEO/GM/Director and to act as mentor, advisor and sounding board.
You have the knowledge and expertise in your business sector – we help you to test and rationalise your thinking using well established business techniques, before committing to action.
| Opportunity Positioning
‘Opportunity Positioning’ - what do you want to achieve? where are you now ? and how to focus your people, market approach, sales, products, processes and customer support towards your goal.
Within your staff you have most of the knowledge and experience you need to achieve this, but may lack the focus and objectivity to bring this knowledge and experience to bear.
We have a proven methodolgy which facilitates the creation of a Strategic Intent (or vision), Strategic Success Indicators and specific Initiatives to achieve these indicators.
Our process looks at all your stakeholders, both external and internal and focuses on how to give all stakeholders what they are looking for.We are confident that, if all your stakeholders get what they are looking for, you will achieve the success you desire.

It is critical that everyone in your company is aligned at all levels and focussing on what has been agreed is critical to achieve success.
Our experience shows that this alignment is rarely achieved and mis-interpretation, uncertainty, ambiguity and disagreement with objectives and processes tend to cloud the situation and to dilute the results.
Following Opportunity Positioning with the CEO/GM, we have a process which communicates and aligns the vision and strategy into the company whilst obtaining the buy-in and ownership of leaders and key professionals.
The probability of success in increased and the uncertainty, ambiguity and stress is reduced.
| Initiative Teams
During the Opportunity Positioning process initiatives are identified which, if implemented well, will improve company performance.
To be successful, companies have to deliver ‘change’ and your Team Leaders need to be your ‘change agents’.
Many team leaders lack the knowledge of how to take an objective and to transform this objective into the required results using the team provided.Our facilitation tutors and supports the Team Leader in transforming an idea into a required productivity improvement. Having followed this process once, they have the ability to repeat this performance and to grow to more significant initiatives.
Company success depends heavily on the key leadership team and on their ability to harness the efforts of those who work within their teams.
Often these key leaders have reached their position by being technical experts in your key product sectors but not in the complex world of leading/managing others to obtain optimum results.
We have achieved solid results in this area and the resulting improved performance helps you build your ‘A’ team.
| Individual or Group Coaching
Sometimes training is not appropriate or not sufficient and individual coaching is a more effective option or a necessary complement to training.
An individual may have been identified as having significant potential and requiring a fast track improvement in knowledge, attitude, skills and habits.
In another scenario, a poor performer or someone with behavioural problems may be offered the chance to improve before other more radical actions are taken.
What applies to individuals also applies to teams. We have a strong track record in developing fast track individuals and also improving the peformance of individuals and teams in areas of need
Leadership Teams need to ‘take stock’ periodically and to work on cross team issues which if improved could enhance company performance.
Advantage should be taken from the wealth of knowledge and experience of the leadership team members, to structure your seminar to maximise this, to create prioritised initiatives and to build cross team synergy and cooperation.
We can plan and facilitate such in-house seminars based on your declared goals.
These seminars can be structured as single day sessions or to minimise time away from the work place ... eg. multiple late afternoon 3 hour sessions.
|Off-Site Team Building
Your teams work hard, focus on their operational duties and on improving the processes.
There is often little time to develop relationships with other team members nor to defuse the personal conflicts which arise.
Many companies counter this by periodically taking teams offsite to ‘step off the treadmill’ and to take a look at what they are doing and how it could be done better.
This is done in a structured and ‘fun’ environment which encourages team spirit and development. The outcome is renewed energy and commitment plus many ideas for improvement.
We can plan and facilitate offsite events for you from ½ day upwards.
LSE offers various biometric instruments which provide vehicles to aid the understanding of self and others. These are offered either as a part of other coaching or training programmes or as stand-alone sessions.
