Are your managers and supervisors caretakers or leaders? Our journeys in both the public and private sectors uncover many managers and administrators, but precious few leaders. In most cases, for leaders to flourish the culture must change. Risk taking and initiative occur when (1) boundaries of authority and responsibility are clear and (2) people are provided custom designed performance and leadership skills training to proactively understand their responsibilities and wisely discharge their authority.
THE BOTTOM LINE SOLUTION
Bottom Line spends time in determining where the leadership “gaps” are, then custom design the leadership training, inventories and coaching guaranteed to close those gaps. Balanced Leadership Training (BLT) is designed to provide the specific tools needed in both task and relationship arenas to provide the skills, “ownership” and applications needed throughout the organization.
