Do your leaders have the courage to implement disruptive ideas?
Today’s workplace presents issues never before encountered. Rapidly evolving technologies; more women and minorities in the workplace, especially in leadership; younger generations supervising older…
There are no one-size-fits-all solutions to today’s dynamic challenges. No magic wand, no silver bullet, no quick fix. What then can you rely on? Your leaders’ mindset.
Do your leaders see people and operations as they think they are? Do they have the courage to see them as they truly are? Do they back away from difficult or unfamiliar terrain or do they lean into it – fearlessly? What will it look like when they do?
Imagine two skiers atop a challenging black diamond run. One is having the best day ever; the other, the worst day ever. One is in a euphoric state; the other trembles in cold sweat. Why? One is in the grip of fear. The other has befriended fear.
For over three decades, Barry Moniak has inspired corporate team leaders to face, embrace and befriend the fears that hold them back from extraordinary performance. He helps executive teams identify strengths and weaknesses in their existing system and culture. His unique, systematic methodology integrates innovative solutions into winning synergistic teams that produce results far greater and more profitable than individual efforts ever could.
There is a progressive sequence to this. Each of the following three components is prerequisite to the next:
#1 Assessment | Strategic Planning
A GPS first determines your exact location. Then, when given a specific destination, it plots your route, keeps you on course, and affords you a constant ETA.
Barry Moniak precisely assesses your organizational systems and culture, and identifies inherent institutional fears. A strategic plan is then designed and implemented with short and long range objectives, timelines, appropriate accountability protocols, and final destination ETA.
#2 Education | Training
Your training is enhanced exponentially when people are educated about their systems and interactions before they are trained on teamwork and operations.
Traditional academic models give everyone the same information and instruction, at the same time, in the same way. We accommodate individual learning styles and methods of application. You create a winning culture, where your people actually befriend the fear of enhanced knowledge and advanced skills.
#3 Coaching | Facilitation
Most organizations recognize the need for highly functional, interdependent teams, yet few have had the experience of being professionally coached to be team players.
People learn together and grow faster as a team when feedback is provided in real time rather than stale review. This style of facilitation enhances team perspective and builds coordinated interdependence where teams actually befriend challenges that other teams fear. The result? Synergistic, profitable outcomes.
Black Diamond Leadership Coaching
The establishment of a winning innovative culture that befriends the fears that hold other organizations back, begins with the mind-set of its leaders – the ones with personal power, not just position power.
Understanding how each leader is wired to meet organizational and team challenges is critical; however, discovering this in a group setting is problematic. Leaders need time, personal attention, and private space to analyze and challenge their own perspectives and prejudices; understand and value the thoughts, feelings and fears of others above, beneath and beside them…
This process is best facilitated through one-on-one leadership coaching.
In the midst of organizational enhancement, private executive coaching affords key leaders the opportunity to decide in private how they will show up in public. This is especially important, when dealing with serious or delicate situations.
Executive coaching equips individuals with the strategies necessary to lead a truly synergistic, innovative organization that leans into the fears that other enterprises shy away from.
