Leadership Development

Developing People-Focussed Leaders

A 2012 survey of US workers found that 65% of them would take a new boss over a pay rise. And Gallup, a leader in the field of employee engagement, has estimated that team leaders account for 70% of the variability in levels of engagement in the workplace. This is important because engagement also tends to overlap with measures of stress and wellbeing in the workplace. This is why Head Strong offers a number of leadership training courses for managers as well as leadership coaching and assessment tools to support the development of effective people-focussed managers.
The fact is, when it comes to business line managers really matter.  And line managers who have ‘people-focussed’ skills – clear and respectful communication, the ability to encourage trust and positive relationships, and skilled at conflict resolution – tend to have teams with higher productivity, increased engagement and fewer ‘HR’ issues.  Unfortunately, in the fast-paced, task-focussed world of work, it’s easy to neglect the people side of management.  That’s why Head Strong has a range of leadership development interventions, from our ‘Mind Leaders’ training to leadership assessments and one-on-one coaching.  Click on the links below to find out more about how we can help your workplace to develop leaders who actually lead
