Leadership & Management Development
There are countless opportunities for people to progress in agencies. Whether through business growth, or the fast pace of change, people can find themselves responsible for leading other employees before they know it.
Let’s face it, people management is a HUGE responsibility to take on – especially if they are doing so before they are really ready.
And as we all know, being a great individual contributor does not automatically make a great manager!
I’m a firm believer that your agency culture can only ever be as good as the people leaders you have within the business. They represent the culture and are at the front-line for ensuring your employees have a fantastic experience.
The question is, with such a competitive job market, can you afford NOT to develop your people leaders?
Managers become leaders
A culture of empowerment
Increased engagement and performance
A team to represent YOU
Here’s some truly staggering statistics for you…
- Around HALF of people leave their roles because of their manager in the UK
- This is far worse in agencies – I conducted a poll which found that 94% of people have quit because of the way they were managed!
- 70% of variance in team engagement is solely determined by the teamʼs manager.
- Yet, only 20% of employees ‘strongly believe’ they are managed in a motivating way.
- Worst of all – another poll I ran found that OVER 90% of people that answered have had their mental health negatively affected by a previous manager
Group leadership sessions
Working in small groups, these facilitated sessions give your people leaders an opportunity to share experiences and agree on practical takeaways that they can apply immediately.
From covering the essentials of people management and motivation, to deep diving into elements such as giving feedback, having difficult conversations, and managing people remotely, we can work with you to identify the areas to be developed within your people leaders, and tailor our approach to meet your needs.
Ultimately, as a result of better leaders and a more consistent approach, you’ll end up with happier and more engaged employees across the business.
