Your experience of being a manager over the last 12 months is not what you signed up for. Now is a perfect time to equip yourself with the tools to lead your team calmly, creatively and with confidence. Want to swap overwhelmed and exhausted for optimistic and ready for anything?
2. Coach. It's not always appropriate to coach but if you want to empower your team to come up with their own solutions, freeing up your time to be creative and strategic, a coaching mindset and coaching skills are essential.
3. Confident. Discover what makes a high performing team and how to choose the right approach for each of your team members so you have a positive conversation.
4. Calm. Learn how to prepare to have those difficult conversations about performance or behaviour, and create your own plan for staying calm in the moment.
5. Communicator. Great leadership starts with self-awareness so we'll use the Emotions & Behaviours model to start looking what drives you at work and how this understanding helps you choose how to communicate with colleagues at levels so they'll listen.
If you want to feel motivated, recharged and re-connected to your team and your job, then...
What does the programme include?
I mix video content, highly interactive small group sessions and a forum to share ideas and reflections through a private group on social media.
It is not only a smart and flexible way to learn but a great way of connecting with managers in other organisations - you’ll be building a fantastic network as you go.
You’ll learn through:
You’ll have actions to complete between calls which you will help design so they are relevant to you and move you forward.
All this will be underpinned by a group on social media (e.g. Facebook) so we can support each other along the way, and where I’ll regularly go Live to answer questions.
There’s room for you to bring your own management challenges and get support from me, and the group, on what can help you in the moment.
There are also two bonus C's just for you in this programme: Community - you'll be part of a wonderful group of like-minded managers to share learning & challenges with, and Cheerleading - you'll get all the support you need from your very own leadership coach - that's me!
You will leave a calm, confident and creative leader, feeling motivated, supported and energised, with a tool box full of approaches you can use to inspire your team, and motivate yourself.
You’ll also have had time to practice these approaches - your confidence & resilience as a leader will soar. The only way is up!
Who am I?
I’m Jen, and I've been supporting leaders and managers for over 10 years, through 1-1 leadership coaching and management development programmes. I’ve learnt what skills, approaches and mindsets help individuals perform well at work and I want to share that with you.
I used to be a manager of a big team myself and I know that access to management development was the difference between sink or swim when the going got tough. I remember how it feels - the challenges, the pressure and the juggle. I also know that many managers arrive in senior roles having had little to no investment in their growth as a leader and I’m on a mission to change that!
