6 steps to grow your Leadership Confidence

It's hard enough being a leader when the world is normal, but 2020 has created a whole new landscape in which we have all been challenged. And for business owners, leaders and managers, successfully navigating the constant change continues to be a huge task.

If you have found yourself in a leadership position by accident rather than design, you may well be wondering how on earth it got so tough, so quickly. Leading in normal times may have been occasionally frustrating, but it was OK. Now things are different, and they will be different again next month and for the foreseeable future. And so we need to step up.

How on earth you can learn what you need to when there aren't enough hours in the day, and you don't know where to start? You’d love some help, but what should you read, and how do you make sure your investment pays off immediately?

I understand how you feel. I have been in your shoes. I know what it’s like to lead in difficult times and step up when you don't feel equipped. Without any formal leadership training, I’ve successfully led teams for over 20 years, developing my leadership knowledge and skills in the field. And from this experience, I've spent some time thinking through the key factors that a leader needs to pay attention to if they're going to increase their leadership confidence fast.

6 Steps to greater leadership confidence

  1. A solid Personal Leadership rhythm - daily, weekly, monthly and longer rhythms to ensure you are leading yourself well.

  2. An understanding of the difference between, and the power of, clear vision, mission, strategy, and delivery for your team.

  3. How to establish, build and protect a positive, high-performance culture.

  4. Effective communication - from 1:1 conversation to talks to your team and a wider audience.

  5. Team leadership - gold standard onboarding, continual inspiration, effective delegation, successful conflict resolution, getting your people on or off the bus and situational leadership.

  6. Leading individuals - connecting, coaching, running 1:1s, handling poor performance, having difficult conversations.

Over the past 20 years, I have shaped my approach to leadership from a wide variety of sources - books, blogs, podcasts, study programmes, mentors (both formal and informal), coaches, and I've learned from my teams. I've made a lot of mistakes!

I’ve distilled the things I’ve learned into an accessible programme to help people just like you.

The Leadership Confidence Club will help you to not only navigate the uncertain landscape ahead but will also equip you with skills that will last a lifetime. It’s a 12 week programme which will provide you with straightforward, implementable content to increase your level of leadership confidence. You’ll be better equipped to tackle your role, and you’ll feel more confident about doing so.

The club programme runs every week from Jan 13th to March 31st. The live sessions run from 1900-1945 on Wednesdays, with content recorded and immediately available on your portal.

What is the Leadership Confidence Club?

  • A 30 minute, weekly live online interface with me and other members, where I’ll teach content, respond to questions, and explain the task for the week - directly related to the session content

  • Member’s Podcast released immediately afterwards so you can listen to the content on the go

  • An online reflective journal to record your progress and share your questions

  • A simple task to complete each week that will directly build your leadership confidence

All this for an investment of just £249 per month for 3 months, inclusive of VAT.

‘Everything stands or falls on leadership’ - John C Maxwell

There's a daily personal and business cost when you leave your leadership confidence level low. It’s no fun to feel like you're not doing the best for yourself or your people. And in this economy, the stakes are higher than ever.

What if you could make solid progress to increase your confidence over the first 12 weeks of 2021? What impact would that have on your ability and skills as a leader, how much difference could it make for your team and the effectiveness of your business?

The first step is simple, join me for a free live online training session. If you join me live, you'll qualify for an early-bird special offer, and the first 5 people to register will receive a free 1:1 coaching session with me, to be taken during the course.

I’m looking forward to seeing what happens for you when you get the support and encouragement you need to establish a simple, straightforward and manageable leadership system in your business, and the increased confidence you’ll gain.
