  2. 2. Executives need to stop worrying simply about whether their company will survive, and start creating reasons why it should.Times are tough for most businesses. Aggressive competition, new technologies, global markets,demanding customers, disengaged employees and a severe downturn in the economy are puttingunprecedented pressure on many companies, which must rethink the way they do business in order tosurvive and prosper.Positive Leadership ( advises such companies. Our clients come to usbecause they are facing a defining moment – a challenge or an opportunity that forces them to rethink howthey do business. We help define a response to the challenge which is both robust and designed to build astronger and more capable company.We believe that the results currently achieved in an organisation are not delivered by chance. And althoughinfluenced by factors outside its control (not the least of which is the current economic crisis), they also havea great deal to do with factors within its control – most notably the interaction between business strategy,leadership practices and operational capability. ©Positive Leadership Limited 2011
  3. 3. We know that a clearly defined and well communicated vision and strategy, executed and ‘lived’ byoutstanding leaders and high performing teams, within a culture of shared values, are the essentialcomponents required of businesses which wish to deliver better results than they are achievingtoday.However, achieving and aligning perfectly these different components – especially in high pressuresituations - can be a challenge for many organisations. Often, there is a focus on one or twoparticular areas, but to consistently achieve exceptional outcomes all these components must be inplace and operating at their maximum potential.Positive Leadership works with leaders to deliver sustainable bottom-line, measurable results. Wefocus on each and every component required to deliver business excellence and ensure they are all alignedperfectly. Typically, we do this by:• REAL TIME OBSERVATION AND DEBRIEFING• FACILITATED DIALOGUE• DIAGNOSTIC QUESTIONNAIRES AND FEEDBACK• TEAM COHESION ANALYSIS• MENTORING OF INDIVIDUAL LEADERS OR TEAMS DURING SPECIFIC HIGH PRESSURE EVENTS• ADVISING ON AN END-TO-END BASIS - VISION, STRATEGY, EXECUTION, REVIEW• TAILORED ENGAGEMENTS THAT FOCUS ON EACH SPECIFIC COMPONENT, eg:  STRATEGIC FOCUS, PLANNING AND COMMUNICATION – a bespoke engagement, based around real business issues and priorities, working with a client’s senior leadership team, that includes advice around:  What success looks like for them  What results do they want to achieve  The direction they wish to take the business  The steps required to position the organisation for success  The availability/non-availability of people and resources  A communication programme  EXECUTION OF STRATEGY – translating the marriage of leadership and business strategy into action.
