Benefits of Barbara’s Expertise


Elevate EXECUTIVE Leadership Effectiveness
Transparent awareness of how the executive is performing is essential for the executive to understand how his/her decisions, actions, and words impact everything in the organization. Self-awareness of how the executives perceived by their leaders, peers, employees, and clients enables the leader to make decisions that drive the business forward, communicate strategically while avoiding the pitfalls of poor communication messaging, and fully engage organization support by earning the respect of the employees, peers, and governing boards.

Create a Winning CULTURE where Success is the Norm 
Attracting, retaining, and engaging talent is a daily battle. With 67% of the workforce disengaged, companies are facing a daily challenge of winning against the competition. Employees leave leaders, not companies. Executives set the tone and experience for the culture but often are misguided by their perceptions of how the work environment impacts employees daily. Learning to identify cultural markers, close productivity gaps, and improve engagement is essential for an executive who desires to win the talent battle in today’s complex environment.

Increase PERSONAL Productivity, Every Day
Executives have a lot on their plate and daily distractions are constant. Business requirements, competitive landscape changes, talent needs, personal lives, and the desire to be accessible to all takes its toll on the leader. Building self-awareness of why, when and how these distractions are most detrimental, source the greatest level of distraction, and develop strategies to mitigate the distraction immediately gives hours back to the executive so they can focus on the highest priority strategies.

Elevate TEAM Contributions and Effectiveness
Teams are essential to business success. Diverse viewpoints developed from life experiences, work and service exposure, are the cornerstone to making decisions that not only make the company better now, but also have the impact of avoiding potential problems in the future. Organizing as teams. Working as teams, and celebrating together, drives the loyalty and success that makes employees want to contribute greater than their job description – increasing discretionary efforts. Learn to delegate effectively so all employees contribute at the highest levels.
