Boards and senior leadership teams often contain strong personalities, differing working styles and differing agendas. Add to this the demands of the job and limited time it is no wonder board members can struggle to work together effectively. In Ben’s crew there were people with sharp differences, but who learnt to work together to make the boat go faster.
Our Leadership Performance Programmes have 4 broad aims:
Before the programme commences there is a deep diagnostic into the cultural nuances, drivers and blockers that are specific to the organisation and its people. As much as any 3rd party ever can we seek to truly understand the world that the leadership team is operating in. Making everything that follows relevant and meaningful.
Our Leadership Performance Programme is a modular programme that typically holds 4-5 separate one-day performance sessions. Underpinning these sessions is the Leadership Challenges that each delegate brings to the programme, so that exploring high performance is in the context of their own leadership environment.
The programme is supported by 1:1 coaching, 360 Feedback and a Rowing Day.
Working with Jon and the team at WIMTBGF has been very eye opening and of massive value not only to me as an individual, but the team I manage and the whole business. Jon’s structured approach and free speaking presentation skills made it feel like we was the workshop rather than a classroom learning environment. I strongly believe the teaching and points discussed will be talked about and used by many for the better of the business and for years to come. In the short space we spent with the Jon, I personally have seen the impact and the changes to the overall culture of our business.
Working with the Will It? team has bought clarity of focus to our overarching ambition, as well as a focus on performance enhancement with the tools to support actions. The workshops and training are helping to build stronger trusted relationships and empowering everyone to lead more and challenge further the status quo. Having external guidance and input has been immensely valuable to support our team’s development and customer success strategy. I strongly recommend working with Ben, Tom and the team if you want to take your company to the next level.
As a result of working with Will It Make The Boat Go Faster?, we waste less time and effort on things that won’t help us to achieve our goal and more time on the things that will. The principles are simple to adopt and powerful when consistently put into action. The team at WIMTBGF have been both challenging of us and a pleasure to work with.
