Last year we were delighted to win three awards from Training Journal. Now, we’re excited to be a finalist for the ‘Best HR/L&D Consultancy’ in the CIPD People Management Awards 2016. A few people have voiced interest in our entry, & since it does show quite nicely one side of what we do, we thought we’d share it with you for this week’s Tao Talk. We’ve obviously changed the name of the client, everything else is exactly what we sent in.
Your leaders’ behaviour predicts your performance & engagement. We transform leadership behaviours.
We diagnose at a scientific level what your top people are doing behaviourally, then help you map it across your sales teams.
Losing Customers & Advisers increasingly? Toxic culture? Escalating complaints & hand-offs? We bring the heart, health & WoW! back into service.
Wanting those that we train to become better than us is clearly a very noble and true aspiration. But in reality? Well, our insecurities and ego put that aspiration to the test. How many of us have inadvertently checked the growth of others, either through a thoughtless word or comment, or more often simply by forgetting that we also started out by not knowing much & by making mistakes.
Have you ever wondered why on earth we say such a terrible thing to someone going on stage? The explanation is actually quite satisfying. The old levers that brought the curtain up & down were called ‘legs’. If you were so good that you had to take many, many encores, then the lever could be overworked by having to bring the curtain up & down so many times, & could break. Hence we’re actually wishing the performance is so brilliant that it needs multiple encores.
