Public Sector Leaders

Public Sector Leaders

So you have come to the right place if you’re a director, head of service or aspiring manager in a public sector organisation.

These days being politically astute and being able to get the job done is great but the world is changing, budgets are tighter and tighter and greater commercial acumen is needed to adapt to a more innovative environment – AND empower teams in a radically different way.  Being a public leader requires significantly more than just being able to play policitcal games.  More of you is required!

You may want to transform your leadership behaviour, be better at working across organisational boundaries or be able to make a real difference to delivering whole community benefit – under pressure and whilst creating a better work/life balance.

You get the job done well in your social enterprise or charitable sphere, you have all the relevant expertise and to date this has carried you through.  You’ve made your way up, your team appreciate you and yet you know you can have much more impact if you reduce that self doubt or are able to engage staff and partners in a more powerful way.

In this arena of austerity, how can you bring teams and others on board into a sometimes ever changing agenda? You can do the usual, but this usually ends up with you working silly hours and still you don’t seem to be making the impact you know you are capable of.  You don’t know where to start to reduce working hours or stop the inner critic that is swirling around in your head.  You’re feeling de-motivated, frustrated, put upon, stressed, confused and certainly pressured.

My powerful individual and group coaching leadership programmes will help you develop vital purpose and personal skills that will give life to your leadership and team.  You will find the passion, motivation, release to be the leader and person you are – not fitting a mould or political persona but developing how to build a powerful purpose and emotionally compelling communication techniques that will transform your professional impact.
