1. You will become a purposeful leader and
An effective leader must REFLECT upon and PRIORITIZE their actions
to deliver the corporate strategic intent. Although this might seem
obvious, my experience has proven that many managers, leaders and
executives are not as purposeful as they could be. Supporting my
observation, Bruch and Ghosal spent 10 years studying the managerial
habits within a dozen large corporations including Sony, L.G.E.,
and Lufthansa. They concluded that “...90% of managers squander
their time in all sorts of ineffective activities. Only 10% of managers
spend their time in a committed, purposeful and reflective manner...”
I bring value to my client by coaching them on how to be part of
the top 10% of truly purposeful and effective leaders.
2. You will learn and implement the InnerWarrior Cycle™ –
a thinking sequence that promotes systematic purposefulness.
Over many years working as a change agent and performance coach
for organization and leaders, I have concluded that:
1. To be effective, managers and executive leaders MUST be purposeful.
2. Most managers, executives and leaders don’t feel they have
the time to be PURPOSEFUL (or to reflect and prioritize).
The challenge was to develop a simple, fast and easily applicable
SEQUENCE of thinking that will teach executives to be purposeful
at all time. To meet this challenge, I have created the InnerWarrior
. The InnerWarrior cycle is a systematic approach
to enhance performance at the personal, tactical and strategic levels.
3. You will become a better coach to your own team
The main task of any leader/manager is to effectively coach his/her
own team in elevating their level of performance while enhancing
the degree of fulfillment they get from their work. The leader's
challenge is to present a vision and act in ways that will inspire,
motivate and lead others to positive change. To achieve this objective,
I coach my clients in the following:
