Business problems are people problems. It’s hard to execute your most thought-out business strategy without the right people by your side. But people dynamics can throw a wrench in plans as much as they can help move the needle forward.
We’ve created a FREE E-book on the Six Levels of Unicorn Leadership to help you quickly absorb the elements of high-performing teams so that you can start incorporating them into your own.
Cultivating that kind of high-performing team will fast-track not only your team's achievements but also help advance your own career trajectory, unburden you as a managerial bottleneck, and prevent your whole team from simply spinning their wheels.
Let’s explore an alternative reality…
The Power of Effective Managers
Gallup research has shown that leaders play a huge role in keeping employees engaged—up to a whopping 70%!
This means they’re the lever to guide your team and drive strategic vision. The ripple effect power managers have saves you on the cost of poor leadership from your manager to all of the people they directly manage.
A manager who has the right tools and systems to do the job means you can go back to the vision board and envision new possibilities instead of constantly playing catch up and trying to fit your vision to your capacity instead of vice versa. The bottom line is an effective manager will help your team be more engaged, more effective, productive, and creative, reduce turnover, and drive better and more significant innovation and business and customer outcomes.
The Value of Leadership Development
Gallup discovered that the number 1 reason people change jobs today is "career growth opportunities." And that reason is on the rise.
Leadership training then becomes among the best ROI for your organization because your managers will learn how to develop and grow their teams.
It’s all a self-driving cycle that’s crucial to organizational success. No matter how you spin it, development is critical to maintaining a competitive edge.
A leader's ability to achieve greatness comes from inherent talent and purposeful development. The catch is, that many organizations tend to overlook the importance of actively nurturing their leaders' growth.
This leaves managers directionless and apprehensive in their leadership of their teams.
Gallup has shown that when leaders grow their skills and talent, the employees they lead notice the following:
It provides our research-backed 6-Step Model to understand and begin building the structures, tools and practices of high-performing teams like the Unicorn companies already out there (e.g., Google, Shopify, Netflix, and more).
It works on a buildable model where every step feeds into the next solidifying your foundations as you go.
Ultimately, the classic startup leadership challenge is a story of two tales.
Either one of fast-paced growth, where we hire quickly and pass manager roles to unsuspecting victims.
Or one with slower-paced growth and deliberate investment in leadership scalability.
