WIN FOR CEOs

I’M HEARING FROM CEOs AND THEIR TEAMS, THEY

 

  • Are very busy.

 

  • Have lots of priorities.

 

  • Are feeling overwhelmed.

 

  • Have a vulnerable leadership pipeline.

 

  • Are finding it challenging to stay relevant and current.

 

  • Are not sure where to concentrate their efforts.

 

  • Have significant change and transformation ongoing.

 

  • Just need some space to breathe and think, to figure out the right next step.

 

  • Need to remove reliance on them and their expertise.

 

  • Have big growth plans and need to mature the leadership capability in their organisation to support this.

 

  • Need to give their teams some relief.

 

  • Need to communicate the important things better.

 

  • Have big opportunities and need to accelerate the activity to take advantage of them.

CEOs say to me ‘What I need is ….’ and ‘Would you come and work with me and my team and do what you do.’

 

So, I developed a program to do just this. Help you get the WIN.

THE WIN – WHAT I NEED

 

When you are reflecting to yourself you might think, what I need is:

 

  • The space to do some quality thinking. And I need someone to challenge and stretch my thinking, broaden my vision, and get some horizon thinking going.

 

  • A sounding board to bounce ideas off. I need to create greater clarity for myself, so I can create shape, form, and process, and bring a more solid plan into play. A plan I can share with my executive team, so they can move to implementation and execution to achieve the important goals.

 

  • Someone to bolster my accountability to myself. Someone who will keep me honest, keep me on the path, and ensure I regularly reflect that this path is still valid, as new information and insight comes in.

 

  • Help to elevate my executive leadership team to where this team needs to be operating in order for me, the CEO, to be able to deliver. Ensuring that everybody on the Executive team has the capability and competence to support their individual portfolios and the holistic purpose, mission, and vision they need to deliver together.

 

  • Someone to sense-check me, or to help me make sense of what is going on in my organisation, and then help me figure out what I need to do next in order to make progress.

 

  • To create a succession plan for myself.

 

  • The space for someone to listen who is not inside the business. Someone who has no organisational agenda, to help me create some objectivity in my thinking.

 

  • To elevate myself and my leadership. I need to redefine who I am as a leader and then become this leader so I can do the really important, big, significant, influential, impactful things that I have in front of me.

 

  • A bit of help focusing on the right things because I can’t see the forest for the trees at the moment.

 

  • To have some critical conversations with my team.

 

  • To develop the leadership talent pipeline across the organisation.

 

  • To work with my leadership team to develop our strategic thinking.

 

  • To get my head on straight. To stop mucking around and get on with things.

 

  • Someone to help me bring back the energy to my leadership.

 

  • I’m not really sure, but I know I need something.

WHO I WORK WITH

 

I typically work with people who are or want to do something big. They want to make a difference in the world. Often leading some kind of transformation, something new or changing. And they are heart based leaders. They know that to lead, it is about people. Not just the task, the deliverable, the outcome. They understand the need to integrate the two – people and task.

 

The people I work with are already high performers. They are doing a great job, though it may be taking more effort than they would like. To plateau is not in their nature, and it is also not the way to create the future. These individuals recognise that plateauing is a recipe to lose currency, to lose relevance, and to lose control over their destiny, their future. Not only for themselves, but also for their people, their teams, and their organisation.

 

So, commercially savvy leaders are always looking at how they can become the leader they need to be to create that pathway forward, to make progress and be building a future. They keep an eye on the horizon, even when things are going spectacularly well today. Not only are they focused on what is required right now to keep us afloat, to keep us functioning, to keep us operational, they also have an eye on the horizon for, what do we need to build? Where do we need to create capability? What do we need to be thinking about? What else?

 

These individuals have a now and future perspective.

 

On top of all this, they are teachable. Because they know that to be a leader is to be a learner. They continue their own development, pushing their own boundaries, and becoming more.

Stacey’s experience, advice and availability to act as a sounding board has helped me to build resilience and develop effective strategies for responding to issues as they arise.

I found her experience and insights incredibly valuable. I learned strategies for maintaining perseverance and momentum in an organisation with a challenging culture and behaviours.

Having a regular check in with someone outside the organisation kept me accountable, provided me objective advice, support and encouragement to keep me going.
