 Poor leaders unwittingly dismantle.
 It’s possible to become a great leader.”

About this e-Guide.
As we talk with leaders within organizations about the topic of leadership,
we are very often asked to paint a picture of a variety of things. And,
it’s different for everyone. It may be related to our philosophy on
leadership, the ROI of leadership, the services we offer, exactly HOW
we help leaders and companies, or what others have to say about us.
So, in response, we’ve created this e-Guide as a reference.

Now…here’s the thing! We do not intend for you to read this whole
thing. Instead, take a look at the table of contents, and simply click
on what you’d like to learn more about. Throughout the e-Guide, you
will find links to additional detail...where you would like more.

In Search of Great Leadership

Every day, a star employee is promoted into a leadership role.
An assumption is made that this high-performing individual
contributor will naturally be a great leader. Quite the contrary.
Most star employees have difficulty leading others, because they
don’t understand why others can’t just do it….the way they have
always done it! Doing and leading are very different skills.
The results also differ.                                                       Only 51 percent
                                                                               of employees are
Conversely, many organizations have employees who have spent                   satisfied with their
a long time in leadership roles. They are established leaders. And,            boss, according to
yet, just like the newly-promoted leader, they often struggle in the           the Conference
leadership aspects of their jobs.                                              Board, 2010.

When the star performer or the long-time leader is unable to lead
others effectively, what can a company do about it?

Increasingly, organizations are searching for answers to this
question because they recognize the collateral damage—negative
culture, reduced morale and productivity, loss of good employees—
caused by ineffective leadership.

Ultimately, a leader is judged on results. Yet, too often, results
are lacking. A year-end 2009 Drake International study showed
that only 45 percent of American workers are satisfied on the
job . . . and there is a direct link between a leader’s effectiveness
and the satisfaction of employees he or she leads, as well as a
direct association between satisfaction and results.




To achieve the results desired by an organization,
a leader must know how to effectively balance workforce
accountability with workforce inspiration. Accountability
involves managing employee performance. Inspiration involves
listening, providing encouragement and facilitating interaction
among employees.




Services to support leaders one at a time, or more.                     > GO TO TABLE OF CONTENTS   3
To be effective at inspiring others and making them
accountable, leaders must possess a certain skill set grounded
in proven principles of people leadership. This pertains to
leaders at all levels: team leaders, supervisors, managers,
senior leaders and executives. Most leaders inherently are
better with accountability or inspiration; few are able to
achieve the right balance without further skill development.

Leadership is a Developed Skill

We are not born to lead. We’re born with the ability to lead, and
the level of this ability is not the same for everyone (as you have
probably noticed). When you see a strong leader in action, you’re
likely witnessing a person who has developed and honed skills
over time.

Over the past 20 years, we’ve worked with thousands of leaders
across varied industries and have observed firsthand the impact
of strong and weak leadership on employees and organizational
results. Unfortunately, in our experience, truly great leaders are
in short supply. Many executives have told us that their
experiences mirror ours: When asked to name some great leaders
in their own careers, most can produce only one or two names.

The Need to Lead

The Need to Lead, a Living As A Leader position paper, highlights
the leadership void in companies today and the ramifications of not
having strong leaders.

Are you aware of the leadership crisis in our country? We’ve
all read the shocking headlines on the demise of once-revered
companies driven into the ground through dramatic lapses in
leadership. On a less visible front, and at a level where leaders
interact with employees one to one every day, the news is also not
good. It is here that ineffective leadership is sending significant
negative repercussions throughout departments and organizations,
and having the kind of negative effect on corporate bottom lines
that may surprise you.

You can read more on this topic in The Need to Lead.

Leadership Philosophies
Much of what we do in our work begins with an understanding
of fundamental human behavior. We help leaders recognize what
inherently challenges them in their overall effectiveness. Observing
leaders who struggle repeatedly with a number of basic bad habits,
we see over and over again that these poor habits are, pure and
simple, not intentional. For this reason, we strongly advocate
“intentional” leadership.

In all of the work we do with leaders, we encourage them to:
	 •	Be Kind
	 •	Be Humble
	 •	Be Tolerant
	 •	Be Productive
	 •	Be Accountable
	 •	....and Serve Others

These principles form the cornerstone of our philosophy on
supporting leaders.

How We Can Help

Welcome to leadership development. It’s a rewarding process.

We can help leaders at all levels – from the rising star promoted
into a leadership role to the long-time leader. To achieve the
results you seek, we employ 1) our comprehensive leadership
development series or 2) customized leadership development
services designed to fit any situation.



Leadership Development Series


   Our signature service, the Leadership Development Series,
   covers a 12-month period of progressive development.
   This comprehensive, steady- progress-over-time approach
   equips leaders with depth and breadth of skill and
   knowledge, through monthly workshops and coaching
   sessions. Participants include supervisors, managers and
   some senior leaders.



Services to support leaders one at a time, or more.                 > GO TO TABLE OF CONTENTS   14
We also offer a six-month series for informal leaders who do
   not have the same authority as 12-month participants, yet also
   need to effectively influence the actions of others. Participants
   include team leaders, group leaders, project leaders,
   employees with high potential and technical professionals.

   Leaders who successfully complete either development series
   will be workplace-ready—intentional and confident with the
   leadership choices they make, instinctively knowing what to
   say and what to do.                                                         “The two most

      1) We come into your organization and deliver the series                 ‘I don’t know what
         to your intact team of leaders.                                       to do.’”

“…Many times we managed without thinking, as though through our experience
we surely would be doing the right thing. Through Impact’s thoughtful guidance
and coaching, we started really thinking about what we were doing and how we
were managing, and we realized we weren’t as wonderful as we thought.
Through their assessment, my own reflection and your thoughtful training,
I rediscovered how critical my communication with others could and should
be. It is far too important for me to not give critical thought to purposeful
communication.… The Impact coaching process supported a replicable,
thoughtful approach to evaluating my action and addressing next steps.
Where else can a leader open themselves to find that support and not lose
the necessary confidence that leadership requires?”

“In 2007, I hired Impact Consulting to work with my senior leadership team
for a number of reasons. These included to:

   1) Strengthen their visibility and practices as leaders at large
      in the organization
   2) Improve their peer collaborations during critical meetings, as well
      as in their day-to-day work
   3) Lead their functional areas more intentionally.

“This was not so much about techniques as it was the practice of leadership.
Over time, as this team became more aligned and effective in their roles, the
line outside my door diminished. This enabled me to be more effective in my
role as CEO, with measurable time spent focusing on strategy and vision. I am
very pleased with the value Impact Consulting contributed. “

And, it’s different for everyone. It may be related to our philosophy on leadership, the ROI of leadership, the services we offer, exactly HOW we help leaders and companies, or what others have to say about us. So, in response, we’ve created this e-Guide as a reference. Now…here’s the thing! We do not intend for you to read this whole thing.

An assumption is made that this high-performing individual contributor will naturally be a great leader. Quite the contrary. Most star employees have difficulty leading others, because they don’t understand why others can’t just do it….the way they have always done it! Doing and leading are very different skills.

This pertains to leaders at all levels: team leaders, supervisors, managers, senior leaders and executives. Most leaders inherently are better with accountability or inspiration; few are able to achieve the right balance without further skill development.

  • 14. Leadership Philosophies Much of what we do in our work begins with an understanding of fundamental human behavior. We help leaders recognize what inherently challenges them in their overall effectiveness. Observing leaders who struggle repeatedly with a number of basic bad habits, we see over and over again that these poor habits are, pure and simple, not intentional. For this reason, we strongly advocate “intentional” leadership. In all of the work we do with leaders, we encourage them to: • Be Kind • Be Humble • Be Tolerant • Be Productive • Be Accountable • ....and Serve Others These principles form the cornerstone of our philosophy on supporting leaders.

William Christel Vice President of Human Resources/ESH Advanced Waste Services, Inc. “…Many times we managed without thinking, as though through our experience we surely would be doing the right thing. Through Impact’s thoughtful guidance and coaching, we started really thinking about what we were doing and how we were managing, and we realized we weren’t as wonderful as we thought. Through their assessment, my own reflection and your thoughtful training, I rediscovered how critical my communication with others could and should be. It is far too important for me to not give critical thought to purposeful communication.… The Impact coaching process supported a replicable, thoughtful approach to evaluating my action and addressing next steps. Where else can a leader open themselves to find that support and not lose the necessary confidence that leadership requires?” Gary Mohn, CEO Alexian Village of Milwaukee Services to support leaders one at a time, or more. > GO TO TABLE OF CONTENTS 24
