It is increasingly challenging working as Senior Leader, there are pressures from many sources. Too often the focus is on the tasks and key decisions are made in a fast paced, pressurised environment. This can result in conflict with peers, office politics and the creation of a Them v’s Us attitude between Senior Management and employees.
Being a Senior Leader can be a lonely role, strength of character, resilience and high levels of Emotional Intelligence are required in order to perform at one’s full potential as opposed to full capacity. You create the environment in which your teams fall or flourish – resources are at a premium and now more than ever – your role is to ensure the engagement , attitude and well being of your employees is at the forefront of your mind.
We believe it doesn’t need to be lonely at the top. As a Senior Leader you can use the power of Emotional Intelligence and world class tools to develop and raise your self- awareness and awareness of others. In order to be an authentic leader, and create effective followers – you must raise your levels of self awareness.
At Foresight we have worked with 100’s of Senior Executives to allow them to release their full potential and create an environment of trust, openness, accountability and collaboration.
