Engage Leadership delivers the right mix of managerial intervention and mentoring. The mix depends on your specific needs. For example, the task may be to develop a number of team members simultaneously. In other cases it may mean fulfilling a management responsibility for part or all of an assignment, along with engaging in related mentoring sessions.

Managerial intervention includes setting goals, defining clearly the outcomes the organisation wants, directing action to meet those goals and performance management.

Mentoring sessions are customised to take account of individual’s skill levels and observed mindsets & behaviours. These sessions involve learning and development, guidance towards goals, and the mutual sharing of experiences & opinions. The focus is on unlocking potential and on building self-belief.

Engage Leadership’s main goal is to ensure that when the interim assignment is completed the management team is more accountable and self-directed.

Engage Leadership’s assignments are typically of one to three months duration, but can be shorter or longer depending on your requirements.

Engaging the Leader

The desired outcomes of the interim assignment will be discussed and agreed with the CEO or owner. This will include, inter alia, a review of the organisation’s strategic plan and priority short-term goals.

A customised program will be delivered to the CEO / owner entitled: Leadership Development – Understanding the Role of a Leader.
