Too often leadership and success experts will talk about the importance of work-life balance. We do not. The phrase implies that an improvement in one automatically equals a decline at the other end of the scale. This kind of thinking is both emotionally debilitating and factually just plain wrong. We help leaders like you improve their work-life integration, ensuring that you drive both growth in the business and your own life at the same time.
We are, we believe, the only leadership development company that teaches both people management and personal management, or; Growing Your Business and Growing Yourself.
Whatever level of leadership you aspire to, Help to Grow will provide you with a solid foundation of self-knowledge and a toolkit of practical models to aid decision making in difficult situations.
Help to Grow has helped progress the capability and confidence of our aspiring business leaders. To a person, I can see that each individual has benefitted from your support. In particular, I have seen growing confidence, increased collegiality, improved personal performance and a commitment to lifelong learning which I am sure will stay with them throughout their careers.
The areas where the programme has helped me the most is refocusing on my personal development and starting to think deeper about tangible ways I can develop and achieve my goals. never been so focused on achieving a set of goals and my personal progression. The approach & material is really focused on me as an individual which is totally different to any coaching/mentoring I’ve had in the past.
The course has completely changed the way I view my role, without it I would still be focussed on completing tasks I am set rather than the bigger picture and how I can help and influence positively across the region I work in. On a personal note, as an anxiety sufferer (as so many people are) the tools and thought processes from this course are a fantastic way to help me keep in control of my working life.
Would definitely recommend this course to anybody looking to improve their ability to lead. It will make you examine your own strengths and weaknesses and give you the tools to deal more effectively with the pressures of a busy working environment. It did not take long for to me to realise that investing time in this project was going to improve my performance as a Leader and give me a better understanding of my own priorities and motivations.
We democratise leadership to empower everybody in the business to improve the bottom line as well as their own health and happiness. We believe that there are many people with unrealised leadership potential. By helping them realise it we can diversify leadership, unlock their latent talents and open up new possibilities for both them and the business.
We believe passionately that good business is fundamental to a good society, and good people are essential for good business. By helping emerging leaders realise their full potential we can bring greater balance to the lives of individuals, companies and society as a whole.
The Help to Grow integrated model forms the core of the Growth Leader’s programme.
The two sections labelled Self-Awareness and Self-Control respectively, are the foundation of the pyramid just as they are the foundation of a long and successful career. If we do not start with these two then not only can we find ourselves working against our values, but we can unconsciously end up sacrificing the very things we set out to work for; family, health and happiness. Further still, without the ability to regulate our worst traits and amplify our strengths our careers will be permanently mired in a struggle against ourselves.
Purpose, People and Pace form the 3 distinct stages we train leaders to work through when leading others. We believe the best work is performed by teams who share a strong sense of purpose and are composed of great people with mutual values. These teams must then be inspired and supported by strong leadership to deliver at the maximum manageable pace. The 3Ps model is our proven framework for implementing this.
As we progress in our careers, we may realise there is more than one route to success and the top of our career mountain.
Often the easiest path does not go as far nor as high. Which path are you on?
It is not easy changing an organisation mid-flight without crashing it.
When your organisation is going through a mid-air change, try to be patient and supportive to those who are leading. They are doing their best to steer to more stable conditions on a new route.
Never mind “Old Dogs”. It’s often harder for “Top Dogs” to learn new tricks.
Do you wish your team were less dependent on you? Do you fear what would happen if you were not around?
Good time-management skills are the foundation stones of improvement. Without developing good time management skills any attempts at self-improvement can feel like a house built on sand, stable only until a problem arises.
In the Help to Grow leadership course, to which this resources section is linked, wealth is defined more broadly than being about financial well-being, we define wealth as being about value.
Happiness, thankfully, means something different to each of us. In the Help to Grow leadership course we focus on happiness as it pertains to our leadership capabilities and those we are responsible for, both at work and home.
