No matter what stage of life, level of business or hierarchy you are at, Prioritisation is an incredibly important skill to have!
The ability to identify priorities and act on them is a skill that surprisingly few people actually have or use on a regular basis.
You have the same number of hours in the day as everyone else. Then how come there are some people in this world that seem to be so productive and achieve so much each day!?
Well, it’s simple, they prioritise and don’t procrastinate!
In this course we’ll be looking at prioritisation.
- How to prioritise,
- What to prioritise,
- And how to move into action.
- This is also covered more in depth in my course ‘Stop Procrastinating!’ which you may also choose to take a look at.
A little competition can be a good thing for a team, but when the competition is excessive it often results in chaos and dysfunction. It can create conflict and hostility, decrease your productivity, negatively impact your teams, and even cause you stress outside of work. In this session, we’ll begin by looking at your situation, and the different ways to manage competitive coworker relationships. Then we’ll come up with strategies to help you navigate the situation with your competitive coworkers so you have less stress and more control.
This coaching session supports leaders in directly addressing underperformance in their team members. It provides the systems (knowledge, frameworks, processes and action planning support) required to enable you to take decisive action in elevating, motivating and developing your people. Whether this is a new employee or someone that has been working for you for a significant period of time, and whether you are a new or tenured leader – this coaching session will provide you with the tools and best practices required to make a positive impact on the employee and face the issue head on.
Whether it's giving a presentation in front of an audience, speaking up in meetings, or briefing your team, peers or supervisors, being an effective communicator is a valuable skill. But sometimes speaking in front of people can feel intimidating. In this session, we’ll begin by exploring your specific challenges around feeling comfortable speaking in front of others. Then we’ll come up with strategies you can use to be a more confident and effective public speaker.
In today's world, most of our work environments have become high paced and dynamic. Along with that comes Stress. In this video series, we will be engaging in specific exercises to help create some coping mechanisms for you to deal with stress effectively in your workplace environment.
Influencing others at work can be difficult. You may find that although you work hard, your efforts aren’t recognised by those that matter and you are overlooked when opportunities arise. Or, your opinion isn’t sought during meetings. You may find that you aren’t invited to meetings that could be relevant or which would be good for your profile. Becoming valued and recognised as a future leader is more than just working hard and delivering. Raising your profile with those that matter and influencing how they perceive you is critical to your success.
In this video series, I am going to give you simple tools for transforming stress into lightness and flow. You are going to be able to deal with stress on the mental, emotional and energetic level. If you are a sensitive human being then you probably also feel the stress from others and make it your own. Therefore, you are going to learn how to deal with stress that is not yours. At the end of the course you are going to be able to go with the flow and develop greater basic serenity.
Do you know when asked to share new ideas in front of a group, more than 70% of us hesitate. If you identify with that, or if you are a manager who wants to create a team culture wherein everyone feels comfortable to share their new ideas, then this video series is for you.
Trust is central to human interaction and a powerful facilitator of your leadership. The reasons why people have or don’t have confidence in your leadership are sometimes obvious, often elusive. Four types of stakeholders have an interest in your leadership success: your market, your business owners, your team/colleagues and your greater self. In this session we will focus on your team’s perspective.
Running a successful team workshop is one of the most powerful ways to strengthen your leadership, motivate and inspire your team, whilst improving performance. This topic focuses on preparing and delivering a “Ways of Working” workshop which will help the team agree and align to their joint goal as well as how they will work together to reach the goal in an energising and positive way. It can be run at any time, when you have just taken over leadership of the team, annually, or when there are challenges within the team that you need to address. You can also use this approach if you are facilitating a team that doesn’t report into you.
Have you ever experienced state of mind where great decisions, actions and creativity seem to be effortlessly? A state of deep focus where you are so much more productive?
Flow, also commonly known as being ‘in the zone’ is understood as being fully immersed in an activity and feeling totally focused on one thing. Great decisions, actions and creativity seem to be effortless and flow from within.
Flow can be a moment in time that can grow into a life direction, purpose and meaning. For this exercise we will use the analogy of a river fed by multiple small streams. Each small steam is a moment of flow in your life. Every time we act in flow towards our vision or goal, the streams add energy to the river, giving it more power and momentum. Before you know it, your flow will become an unstoppable positive force. Each journey starts with a single step. Each raging river starts with a small stream.
Knowing why and how to get into flow is critical to the process. This is what we’ll look at here. By identifying how to get into flow in a single moment, we are also discovering the building blocks of life flow.
You have taken on a new role as a leader of a department. You might be asked, or you wish to establish a team business plan. You might have some questions how to address this. If this is the case, this program is for you.
As a leader, delegation is essential if you want to give yourself the time and the energy to do something of higher value; strategy and change management for instance.
As an R&D manager at HP, I realised that there are really 2 parts to this process of delegating and “letting go”.
First there’s the ART. This is the observable skill of delivering the 6 steps of the process; prepare, assign, confirm understanding, confirm commitment, avoid taking back the task, and ensure accountability. That 6 step process is external; that’s the ART and it’s the first part of delegating.
The second part is the HEART of delegating. This is your ability to truly feel comfortable and confident with your delegation skill. This is internal, and it’s this second part which is the focus of this coaching topic.
It includes things like trust, empowerment and your leadership identity.
Good focus is at the heart of moving forward in your work. But it’s not always so easy to acheive it, and once you have acheived it to sustain it for a good length of time!
I will help you to understand what your main barriers to productivity are – not only the things that happen in your office to interrupt you, but also the things that happen in your brain to interrupt you. You may be surprised to find out just how often you distract yourself.
Once you know what your main barriers and interuptors are, we are going to work together to make an action plan to help you reduce them and at the same time increase your rate of focus and productivity.
As leader of a team, you have responsibility for the results that your team delivers. So, you want your team members to perform at their best, and that depends to a large extent on the quality of the relationships that you have with your team. It depends too on the quality of the conversations that you have in 1:1 meetings.
It’s those 1:1 conversations which I will cover in this coaching series, and I’ll be looking at the environment you work in, the structure of the meetings, and how the content varies depending on the maturity of your leadership and your relationship with each team member.
