When enough people, across all levels begin to LEAD, then we will see positive change occurring. We will experience a shift from believing that there is nothing we can do to change the bigger picture, and start to believe that we can influence a different future.

Why leaders are needed at all levels
THE BIGGEST HURDLE ALL NEW LEADERS HAVE TO MANAGE
There is an evolutionary path that everyone has to take on the road to leadership. Studies show that most who are in management positions have not been trained and equipped to hold these functional roles. Of those in management roles, few have been trained and equipped for the leadership function that a management function requires. The transition path from technical competencies to leadership competency is failing many potentially great leaders.
There is a detrimental impact on those who have transitioned through their technical occupation and into a management/ leader role without undergoing leadership equipping. Research has shown that;
- 80% of managers fail to impress in the first 2 years
- 70% of managers are stressed
- 70% of managers do not enjoy their jobs
The result is high levels of inefficient and ineffective leadership.
The biggest underlying cause for this is that managers have not been trained or equipped to lead.
AND THE RESULT IS …
THE COST OF POOR MANAGEMENT
A competitive advantage is getting more difficult to achieve and retain as the landscape becomes increasingly complex and tight.
One of the areas that will win or lose competitive advantage exists within the quality and culture of leadership accross the business.
Currently poor leadership is costing organisations and businesses through
- Lack of internal and external alignment
- Loss of key staff
- Disengaged workforce
- Low efficiencies
- Loss of customers as a result of the previous points.
To blame is
- Management approaches that are flawed, outdated or non-existant
- Managers that are not trained and equipped to be leaders
- A lack of leadership culture that is encouraged or exists throughout the organisation
THE UPSIDE OF TRAINED AND EQUIPPED LEADERS
With the right approach and through equipping managers to be leaders and developing a broader leadership culture in the business, you can spend more of your team’s time and energy on leveraging opportunities. Here are the benefits;
- An aligned organisation that reduces internal and external conflicts of interest
- Reap the rewards of high levels of efficiencies
- Retaining of key staff and the core knowledge and experience that is crucial to the business
- The advantage of an actively engaged workforce
- Motivated and less stressed managers who are more engaged and therefore effective
- Retention of customer that are crucial to the profitability and sustainability of the company.
Organisations with a leadership culture are 80% more likely to obtain and hold a competitive advanatage in the marketplace.
