Senior leader mentorship

Simon is a mentor and confidante to senior leaders across a range of sectors, boosting their performance, building their confidence and making their role more profitable AND enjoyable.

 

What he does

Clients have told him he is a bit like Mary Portas, but for senior leaders not shops!  He listens, but is not afraid to say what he thinks. He’s challenging and sometimes tough, but always constructive.

Simon also helps top teams work better together so they can deliver outstanding results.

Supporting top teams

Do you feel your senior team could function better? Are assumptions made about the direction, roles and priorities? Are there tensions that never get discussed openly?

Senior teams sometimes get stuck and need a little help. Smart teams invest in themselves to work better together and deliver outstanding results.

How Simon supports senior teams

As a senior team facilitator, Simon helps align objectives so that everyone is on the same page.

He helps clarify goals, roles and priorities, often after major change, so that people aren’t relying on assumptions and partial information.

He brings out any “elephants in the room” so that nothing important is left unaddressed. He facilitates deep understanding so that you build trust and confidence in each other.

And he helps top teams focus on what is important so that there is the right mix between the strategic and the tactical.

Senior Team Facilitator

Simon’s approach

No two senior teams or organisations are the same so the approach he take varies. Generally, he spends a few days understanding the top team and it’s dynamic, confidentially meeting with each individual and often attending meetings.

This way he can build a picture of the themes that need to be explored.

He then facilitates a senior team development session, exploring these themes and facilitating discussions in a way that promotes understanding and improves performance. Even the most cynical find these sessions helpful and constructive. Often we set up regular follow up sessions to monitor and build on progress.

Typically, senior groups benefit from:
