  The Leadership Team

With a name like this, it’s obvious that we’re all about leadership! But what is a leader?  

The leader is the one who is ultimately responsible for ensuring the success of whatever enterprise a group is engaged in. Success can mean different things to different groups: return on investment, achievement of important humanitarian goals… or even a fun time socially. Sometimes leaders have been appointed by an organisation and sometimes a group has chosen or elected them. But at the end of the day, if no-one is following, you’re not leading! It’s a challenging task and we’ve developed a range of practical tools that are designed to help you lead your team or organisation towards sustainable success.

These tools - Our Solutions - are organised for you under the following categories:

         
  Provide clear direction
Get the right people
Lead for engagement 
    Manage performance & rewards
Manage relationships
Manage work & resources

WHY IS LEADERSHIP SUCH A CRITICAL ISSUE FOR ORGANISATIONS?
One of the major reasons is because of the link between leadership, employee engagement and organisation performance. The evidence connecting employee engagement with organisation performance is overwhelming.

For instance, in 2006 the Gallup organisation compared scores on engagement surveys with business performance for 23,910 business units. They found that business units with engagement scores in the top half had 27% higher profitability than those in the bottom half.

In 2008 the British government commissioned a major survey, the MacLeod Report, to investigate the contribution of employee engagement in driving economic recovery. Their findings show that leadership is the key to engagement and a high-performing organisation. The choices leaders make and the way that they behave drive success.

If your people are fully committed to your organisation and give their very best efforts, you’re going to out-perform organisations where the people are absent-minded and switched off.

Are you interested in the 27% higher profitability reported in that Gallup survey? Or do you have other measures of success that need a similar performance boost? The gains are there to be grasped, but it’s often difficult for the busy leader to make sense of the research and work out how to apply it in practice.

The Leadership Team does that for you. We build practical tools from the world’s best leadership thinking and share these with our clients to increase leadership success.
