Some managers, both new and experienced, tend to focus on output rather than the people who are producing the product. Yet research shows that when a manager provides clear direction, information and support, performance increases.

Leading for Performance - Meeting Leadership Challenges (LFP-MLC) helps managers learn how to shift their attention away from output and toward creating optimal conditions in three key leadership action areas.

Learning to focus attention on effectively meeting employees' needs in these areas leads to long-term, sustainable growth. While ignoring these areas may lead to low morale, attrition and low performance.

Programme Outcomes

Meeting Leadership Challenges helps shift managerial focus from strictly output toward creating stimulating conditions for employees to accept greater responsibility. Managers will understand what it means to be an effective leader in their organisation, rather than an individual contributor.


Leading for Performance - Meeting Leadership Challenges is a half-day instructor-led module that can be facilitated by Wilson Learning or by a leader-trained in-house professional. This enables:

  • Face-to-face interaction among the participants and the facilitator
  • True-to-life skills practice with immediate in-person feedback
  • The opportunity for real-time commitment to action
Enabling Improved Performance

Leading for Performance - Meeting Leadership Challenges features the Leadership Actions Planner and Job Aid Card so participants can fine-tune and apply their newly acquired skills and behaviours on the job. Involving more senior management to ensure alignment and clear organisational direction, as well as training participants' managers to support and coach them, are very important for successful implementation.

Measurement And Evaluation

Organisations that implement Leading for Performance - Meeting Leadership Challenges have access to a broad range of tools to measure initial behavioural changes and business results. For LFP-MLC, one approach may be a web-based survey of participants' direct reports to identify the degree of change and the differences this change makes.
