The Leader Manager: Achieving Performance with Fulfilment
The Leader Manager
Organisations expect managers to get results, but long-term performance requires a focus on more than just results. Research indicates that high performance is not sustainable over time unless it is accompanied by a high degree of fulfilment, in addition to a focus on performance—neither performance nor fulfilment exists in a vacuum. To implement strategy and create business results, managers must create an environment of performance with fulfilment. These skills require integrating the inspiration of leadership with the skill of management.
The Leader Manager: Achieving Performance with Fulfilment (TLM) provides leaders with the framework and skills to enable the work unit to achieve Performance with Fulfilment—the combination of high performance and high satisfaction from meaningful work done well. Leaders learn to support their work units in terms of five practices to provide what their people need.
TLM is an intensive programme that fosters both insight and skill development around what is most important for a leader to do—enable the best from their people.
Leaders create an environment for employees to achieve performance with fulfilment by integrating the leadership and management practices essential for executing business strategy.
Wilson Learning approaches each of its solutions with the purpose of ensuring transfer of learning to the job. The Learning Transfer approach seeks to ensure that:
- The learner is prepared for the core learning event.
- Activities are embedded in the solution's instructional design and support the transfer of learning to the job.
- The organisation supports the use of the new skills.
The Leader Manager (TLM) incorporates this Learning Transfer approach to drive increased performance.
Participant Readiness: Pre-workshop communication prepares managers for the learning experience and their managers for supporting the learning experience. The Leader Manager Inventory (optional) enhances the impact by giving participants feedback from those they lead.
Learning Design: The TLM workshop is a two-day application-oriented session. This instructor-led session can be delivered in modular format over two non-consecutive days to allow application between sessions.
Organisational Alignment: Post-learning communications to managers and their managers support both skill application and implementation.
The Leader Manager workshop can be facilitated by Wilson Learning or by a leader-trained in-house professional. This enables:
- Face-to-face interaction among the participants and with the facilitator
- True-to-life skills practise
- The opportunity for real-time commitment to action
Enabling Improved Performance
The Leader Manager is enhanced by application activities, post-learning reinforcement, pre- and post-classroom e-mails and support tools. These tools help ensure that sales leaders can develop skills during the workshop, then fine-tune and apply their newly acquired skills and behaviours back on the job. Involving participants' managers is also important for successful TLM implementation; manager support tools are provided for that purpose.
To discover how we ensure learning is reinforced and applied for improved performance, see our Learning Transfer Approach.
The learning experience is enhanced by the use of the Leader Manager Inventory, a multi-rater instrument designed to provide managers with feedback about how their leadership behaviour is perceived by those who report to them and by their manager.
Wilson Learning can partner with your organisation to measure the initial behavioural changes and business results. Our common interest is to make sure that The Leader Manager delivers the results you seek; we have a variety of tools to help you evaluate progress and results.
