Fixed ideas. Rigidity. Siloed thinking.
Let’s partner so you avoid falling victim to these tunnel vision hazards which can contribute to perception that a leader is inflexible.
Tunnel vision’s linear thinking causes project failure and negative financial impact, and demotivates teams. I will identify workable strategies to eliminate this.
Purpose is admittedly all the rage in the leadership lexicon these days and I urge caution if you’re inclined to dismiss it as faddish. Research shows that winning workplaces have purposeful leaders at the helm, and productive, happy employees as a result. Employees expect executives to have a why that transcends revenue. I work with you to make this your reality.
Leaders’ traits and behaviors set the tone of the culture. And the impact of effective leadership on net income is supported by research. On the other hand leadership is a stress factor on the business when inadequate. It can cause high morale and costly turnover, while extraordinary leaders create more economic value and foster environments where people thrive.
Every executive needs a trusted high level confidante with whom they are free to strip away the façade and get to the heart of issues. Let me be your welcome light and brain trust. Together we’ll excavate issues getting in your way and work on a game plan to overcome them.
When people are fortunate to have clarity about growth needs along with action steps and strategies, the battle is half-won. It starts with honest reflection and laying things bare. It’s easy to avoid making time for this and to convince ourselves it isn’t needed. Be brave…reap the rewards.
Underperforming business units
War for talent and poor employer brand perception
Unmotivated managers and demotivated associates
Falling share price
These are a shortlist of hazards an executive might be dodging when facing workable deficiencies in leadership strategy. Investing in work with a capable coach will reverse troublesome challenges and position your firm for sustainable wins. Restore your personal satisfaction and creative energy. Take your team and organization to new heights.
I recently contacted Wendy Woolfork for some professional coaching since I anticipate transitioning from my Management position to an Executive role. I needed some guidance on preparation to market my Customer Experience (CX) expertise and to refine my resume. I received so much more than I bargained for as I found Wendy to be a competent, experienced, cutting-edge, dynamic Coach who is well-rounded and experienced across several business sectors. My interaction with her made me feel like a winner in so many ways. She was able to help change my mindset and reposition my thinking, which set me apart from my peers. Because of Wendy's intervention I have been able to stand out and assert myself, not just in the role for which I applied but as a leader. Wendy's services really transformed me professionally; she is outstanding at what she does, her counsel, coaching and advice took me from being just good to being and feeling great.
Wendy Woolfork has a clear gift to enhance the effectiveness of ministry leaders and leaders in general. She helped us immensely through the rebranding of our ministry which is being repositioned to have greater impact both locally and internationally. From a coaching and leadership development standpoint, Wendy reinforced our need to establish priorities and to delegate as leaders. She helped to sharpen our skills, vision and passion, and we feel more confident about our core values and being able to empower competent people that we can trust to be an extension of our leadership. Wendy will help other leaders fundamentally sharpen their vision and become more focused on their primary purpose. Working with her you can go from having a mission statement to fulfilling the vision; being highly focused on who you are, why you’re here and where you’re going. Wendy has a keen grasp of what companies should do to be on the cutting edge in the twenty-first century.
