The Mindset of a Leader

 

Overview:

Do leaders think differently?  Do leaders use their brain differently to other people?  It was these questions that led Paul Bridle down the road to discover “The Mindset of a Leader”.  It appears that leaders do approach things differently and there is a reason why this happens.

Outline:

In this workshop Paul will explain the brain in simple terms and identify what a leader does that makes them engage people, approach things differently and empower more effectively.  This workshop is an opportunity to really examine yourself and what you need to do to operate at a higher level.

Forget Customer Service, it is about Relationship

 

Overview:

Through the 70’s and early 80’s, companies were product driven.  Early 90’s saw the arrival of the ‘Quality’ initiative and very quickly it became evident that quality was not the responsibility of a department but everyone’s responsibility.  That in turn transformed companies into sales driven organisations as the difference between products in the market place became very narrow.

Today we are entering the age where companies are marketing driven.  In the same way that we had a realisation that ‘quality’ was not a department, we are realising that marketing is not a department either.  Marketing is everyone’s responsibility.

Outline:

Customer Service has been about what companies ‘do’ to a customer but now companies need to be able to engage customers in a whole new way.  We use words like ‘Customer Experience’, ‘Customer Engagement’, ‘Customer Engagement’ and ‘Customer Journey’ amongst many more.  What do these really mean?  Customer Relationship is very different and requires the involvement of everyone in the business.  In this workshop we unpick the differences and identify what a relationship with a customer really means.

Engaging People with an Empowering Culture

This workshop will enable leaders to understand ‘Prevailing Attitudes’ and how they affect an organisation’s bottom line.

Management vs Leadership – the difference is your success

 

Overview:

Based on his own research, Paul Bridle has identified that a structure is needed before empowerment can begin, and an organisation’s lack of empowerment is related to its people’s lack of willingness to take ownership. Not wanting to take ownership is a symptom of management not knowing how to structure effectively.

What are the real values that drive the organisation?  These are not the values you see written on the wall or in the Annual Report.  These are the attitudes that people have at all levels of the organisation about their job, their manager, their people and even customers.

Outline:

In this workshop we will examine people’s attitudes and how perceptions drive people’s behaviours.  This will enable leaders to understand ‘Prevailing Attitudes’ and how they affect an organisation’s bottom line.  This workshop will also look at the structure that successful organisations use to ensure that empowerment works in their business. Participants will be able to evaluate how effective their organisation is and the steps that they need to take in creating an empowering structure.

Management vs Leadership – the difference is your success

This workshop will look at the difference between managing and leading.  What the characteristics of a manager and a leader are?

Management vs Leadership – the difference is your success

 

Overview:

The assumption that a Manager will also make a Leader has landed many organisations with issues.  Moving people into management roles by progression is fraught with dangers.  Promoting people because they have been in the job for a period of time or because they are good at the job often leads to performance issues.  Carrying out a functional role, being a manager and leading, require very different attributes and skills.

Outline:

This workshop will look at the difference between managing and leading.  What are the characteristics of a manager, and beyond management, what characteristics does a leader need?  Defining the characteristics and competencies of a manager and a leader will enable organisations to develop their people to succeed as managers and leaders rather than set them up for failure.  Paul Bridle will show how leadership has evolved and provide a framework that people can use to identify where they should be spending their time.
