High Performance Leadership Part 1
Before you have the right to lead others you must be able to lead yourself.

This powerful program will equip you with the tools necessary to lead, high-performing teams and individuals. Application of the skills shared in the program will rocket you to important & prestigious leadership roles.
All the creative breakthroughs in excellence must originate with people. The people you want in your organisation, regardless of position, want to grow in personal and group leadership skills. They want to be led not driven.

This is a practical step by step process to building a culture of high-performance.

Leading the "WHY" Generation (The "Y" & "Z" Generations)
Generational Rifts are the significantly different viewpoints held by the various generational groups that can lead to frustration, misunderstandings, conflict and ultimately lower performance, disengagement and staff turnover.
The profoundly different views and values of the Why Generation put them in conflict with older generations who often want them to conform to their own rules and priorities. This is a mistake. Our true opportunity is to unlock the potential of young people by meeting them in the middle. (A mindset change).
Change today happens so quickly. No longer are there short periods of change, followed by long plateaus of stability. Most of our lives today are a continual, never-ending series of changes, with ever-shorter rest periods. So, we must learn to live with and thrive in a world of constantly changing demands and opportunities.
Like it or not, we are all affected by the changes occurring in our society. These broad shifts affect our values as well as the structure of our organisations. We need to learn to respond to each of these changes as they affect us. In response to change we need to:
- Protect and take care of ourselves.
- Meet the challenge and stay effective and productive.
- Keeping ourselves motivated and confident in the face of change demands new skills – but not the skills we were taught in school or the ones that many workplaces currently teach. Rather, we need to learn how to learn and respond.
"It has helped me appreciate change as a part of our lives and it can happen in any aspect of our lives. I believe the organisation will be able to reach its targets because its leaders have understood the need for change and how to manage it and will pass it on to other employees." -Charlotte Amanquah - Ecobank Ghana
"I am better equipped to help myself and my team members to manage the changes as a result of the merger. It will enable us to move the team to the commitment stage and away from resistance." -Emeba Koranteng-Yorke - Ecobank Ghana
"Given me more insight into dealing/handling the change process which will help me be a better change agent. We should be a better bank with staff having the right attitude and embracing change." -Adwoa Amoah - Ecobank Ghana
Effective Problem Solving
Have you heard of the old cliché “there are no problems, only opportunities’?
This might sound like a pie in the sky optimism to anyone stuck in the middle of a difficult puzzle or a stressful people problem. But by using the proven, logical problem solving and decision-making system presented in this program you can create opportunities from problems.
By using the comprehensive system presented you’ll know how to define, unravel, analyze and solve tough dilemmas and recurring challenges.
The entire method presented here can be applied to personal situations as well.
Effective Decision Making in an Uncertain Economy
Life is a river and we each make decisions every day about how to navigate it. The way the river flows, is changing. The river of the past was generally calm, somewhat predictable and moderately manageable. The river of the future is more turbulent, usually unpredictable and much less manageable. Our river is changing, and our navigation should be changing. Life on the river means we must learn, not only how to expect change and respond to it, but also how to imagine and create it.
This programme presents a new process called Positive Uncertainty, for making decisions in changing times. “Uncertainty” describes the condition of today’ river of life. The successful decision-maker navigating the river needs to be understanding, accepting, even positive about uncertainty. Today’s world, like the river, is constantly changing. Today’s decision-maker should be as capable of change as the environment.
There is an essential, yet difficult task that all leaders face. It is learning to apportion or DELEGATE work tasks and requirements to the employees they supervise.
This difficulty is often due to personal qualities that need development, e.g.
- Job knowledge
- Personal Competence
- Trust Factors
- Inter-personal communication skills
In order to fulfil your responsibilities as a leader, you need to delegate. This will maximise the potential and ability of your subordinates. This will result in meeting deadlines, reducing stress, improving productivity and developing team members.
Customer Service Excellence
Organisations that satisfy customers most effectively earn the right to survival. We see it every day. When an organisation becomes self-centred and forgets responsibilities to customers, it will lose business and suffer until the customer once again becomes important.
Research has shown that Organisations with high customer satisfaction have an energized and motivated group of employees and managers. People in these organisations have learned to mobilise toward a purpose outside of their work group. The customer is a natural stimulus for needed motivation and teamwork. In the public sector as well as the private sector, organisations must recognise that customer satisfaction is the keynote for continued success.
Customer service is particularly fertile ground for growing some fun on the job. You really do have control over the service you give. You also have the power to give or withhold your skills.
No one can force another person to give good service beyond the most rudimentary, mechanical levels. In a very real sense, we are free to give this gift of service but cannot be forced to do so.
But when we do choose to give of ourselves – to apply the power of customer service – we feel a tremendous sense of satisfaction. And our job will be more fun!
Mentoring, Coaching & Counselling
In his book, “Masterful Coaching”, Robert Hargrove refers to coaching as a journey and not a destination, which “involves impacting people’s visions and in the simplest, day-in, day-out terms, Masterful Coaching involves expanding people’s capacity to take effective action. It often comes down to making it possible for people to succeed in areas where they are most stuck or ineffective.”
- Coaching is a process, not a once-off attempt – It is aimed at continuous improvement, not instant perfection.
- Coaching is helping, not controlling – The learner’s ideas and thoughts are involved and form the basis of coaching activity.
- Practise is needed to enhance and refine the competencies, through planned activity.
- Most development takes place within the work environment.
The coaching relationship is essentially action-orientated, enabling and growth-inducing.
Adaptive Leadership - Leading in a Disruptive World
Developing Leaders that can mobilize people to tackle tough challenges and thrive in a changing world.
In a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous world, business is in a constant state of flux. It’s important that leaders and organisations today can change, flex and adapt to the VUCA world around them to succeed.
The increasingly speedy, rocky and complicated landscape in which we operate, one with the new challenges of changing workplace demographics, globalisation and disruptive technology, leave more unknowns than ever before and moves at continued pace, changing the playing field altogether.
Every organisation is confronted with persistent, recurring problems. They often fall back on obvious solutions such as applying new technologies, recruiting experts or improving communication processes. In most cases, this is done in a hierarchical way with the top layer of management being responsible for finding the right solutions. An adaptive challenge allows problems to be identified more accurately and involves the entire organisation in the search for possible solutions.
Adaptive Leadership can help when there are no easy solutions available. It’s a critical skill for anyone looking for systematic changes in an increasingly complex world.
Adaptive leaders learn to control the context through experiments. They cultivate a diversity of viewpoints to generate many options. They lead with empathy, reward their employees’ performance with autonomy and independence and find winning solutions for all stakeholders.
Leaders today require a new set of adaptive competencies to thrive in the 2020’s.
Fast Track to Increased Sales
The sales profession has undergone some fairly substantial changes over the last number of decades, yet many organizations still operate with methodologies and practices that belong in the last century.
Modern sales professionals see themselves as problem solvers with specific areas of expertise. They are masters at gathering the right type of information and seeing things from the customers’ perspective. They value their time and the time of others and as a result do not waste valuable time or emotional energy in trying to manipulate people into buying something they don’t genuinely need.
Doing this would violate their own personal values and professional integrity. The sales environment in our businesses can only be sustainable if we focus on creating partnerships with our customers, where we are seen as trusted advisors that are dedicated to creating long term value. Money will be a natural by-product of the correct focus.
There is no short cut to getting sales. In this program, we focus on the correct sales process for the twenty-first century, which not only speeds up the sales process, but also leads to extra sales. It is, therefore, THE FAST TRACK TO INCREASED SALES.
High Performance Leadership for Executives
On the surface it looks as if the hyperactive world of work is asking us to ‘do more’, but really it is asking us to think more, imagine more, innovate more, and partner more. In the modern world of work, there is no way we can do everything, so we have to be less hyperactive and more strategic.
This is a dynamic process – a voyage of self-discovery that takes a deeper look at you. You are the single, most influential person that steers your life and with that responsibility comes the effect of how you contribute to the lives of others. It, therefore, stands to reason that if we can begin with ourselves to continuously improve and grow, we will experience a happier, more rewarding and productive life and in turn will be more effective in influencing others to experience the same.
Achievement and accomplishment come as a result of performance and not potential. Howard Hendricks accurately observed that, “Nothing is more common than unfulfilled potential.” The High-Performance Leadership process is not passive in its approach; it is a call for action and results.
‘Quick fixes’ and ‘one-minute solutions’ abound in the fast-moving world we live in. We observe how these ‘fleeting’ and temporary solutions lead to feeling of emptiness, frustration and momentary relief. We, however, will not do that! We realise, that change is not always an overnight experience, but requires continuous application and internalisation.
Arthur C. Clarke said, “The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible”.
Strategic leadership – Refers to a leader’s potential to express a strategic vision for the organisation, or a part of the organisation, and to motivate and persuade others to acquire that vision.
Strategic leadership can also be defined as utilising strategy in the management of employees. It is the potential to influence organisational members and to execute organisational change. Strategic leaders create organisational structure, allocate resources and express strategic vision. Strategic leaders work in an ambiguous environment on very difficult issues that influence and are influenced by occasions and organisations external to their own.
- The main objective of strategic leadership is strategic productivity
- To develop an environment in which employees forecast the organisation’s needs in context of their own job.
- Strategic leaders encourage the employees in an organisation to follow their own ideas.
- Strategic leaders make greater use of reward and incentive system for encouraging productivity.
- Functional strategic leadership is about inventiveness, perception, and planning to assist an individual in realising his objectives and goals.
The objective of Professional Selling is to assist anyone who is or expects to be a professional salesperson. It covers all aspects of selling and provides concrete suggestions and examples about how to become an efficient, effective and professional salesperson.
There is a proven sales and marketing process which, if followed, avoids the common mistakes that many marketers and salespeople make. Thus, detours are eliminated, and we are able to save time and avoid many customer objections.
We focus directly on the correct process, which not only speeds up the sales process, but also leads to extra sales.
Two companies can turn out the same product, yet one will be superior to the other. Why? There’s no difference in design, raw materials or process. The difference is the attitude of the people making the product! It’s that simple. That’s where your supervisors have a vital role to play, and we can help them…”
- To develop positive attitudes and dynamic leadership skills.
- To increase their abilities to deal with pressure received from upper management and worker levels.
- To bring about significant changes in relationships and teamwork.
“Stress is a non-specific response of the body to a demand.”
Stress is simply anything that stimulates you and increases your levels of alertness.
Just as sure as you need to breath on a daily basis, every living organism is exposed to some form of stress on that same regular basis. Stress is not always a negative experience. A manageable amount of stress will drive us to act and acting will produce positive results. Without challenges, trials and a little stretching, life would be dull and no growth would take place.
Stress is also very personal. What is stressful for you may not be stressful for me. Imagine lying on the beach of Mauritius for a week. Some may find this frustrating, non-productive, and stressful because of the loss of income. Others need that experience to get rid of stress.
Due to the fact that varying degrees of stress is a normal part of our daily lives, we need to learn to use it to our advantage. Stress only becomes a problem when our resources and coping mechanisms cannot manage the degree of stress being thrown at us.
This program is designed to serve as both an inspiration and a tool to allow you to move towards much higher levels of performance. You will discover that you have resources that you never knew you had, a sense of internal power, efficiency and effectiveness that will allow you to make a quantum leap of performance. What we have found was that people whether struggling for survival or attempting to achieve Olympic medals, were all drawing on resources they never knew they had. Resources that we all possess.
We also found that the peak performer is the man or woman who refuses to be listed among the mediocre. This program will allow you to identify the main characteristics of peak performers and will teach you to raise your standard of performance in your life.
All of us are looking for an area in which to matter, to make a difference and to perfect that area to levels that we have perhaps never ever dreamed of. This program will allow you to develop an action plan, not only a purpose statement (a statement that provides you with the essential philosophy of what your mission is), but an action plan that you can implement in your daily life that will allow you to achieve your purpose.
Developing Leaders in a Fast-paced World
We develop conscious, self-aware Leaders that are better equipped to understand the drivers of people's behaviour and attitudes and thereby have a greater influence on others.
Developing a More Cohesive Team
This program guides intact teams through a journey to improve in five areas that are key to productive team dynamics: Trust, Conflict, Commitment, Accountability and Results.
Steps to Success for Teens
A revolutionary program designed to equip teenagers with the tools to design their best lives. To develop a greater understanding of themselves and gain control over their lives.
