Are you an Effective Leader?

Well-selected employees who feel respected and appreciated are more productive, have fewer sick days, and are less likely to create conflicts.

We coach executives to use their authority and relationship skills to promote harmony and goodwill between themselves, managers and employees. We can coach you to develop trust-building, conflict resolution and stress control as keys to hiring, firing and inspiring employees.

Are your managers competent ... or are they merely qualified?

Our systemic coaching helps managers deserve their position and use their power carefully to develop the productive workgroups. However, training cannot provide essential managerial qualities such as integrity, judgment, initiative, foresight, energy, drive, leadership, intuition, decisiveness, dependability, stability, fairness, ambition, dedication, objectivity and co-operation. Our Systemic Solutions can coach staff to develop these qualities; or to identify and hire people with the desired qualities.

How can your organization hire people with these qualities?

Potential employees may pretend these qualities during interviews. The normal hiring format of brief interviews with background checks provides limited information for such expensive decisions. Managers need interview skills that delve beneath the surface ... legally providing essential information that predicts an employees future work relationships, performance and behavior.

Hiring employees is expensive - especially if you hire inappropriate people. We help managers to attract, select and train appropriate employees.

We coach managers to ...

  1. Determine personality requirements as well as education and experience
  2. Determine prospects' required relationship skills and their evaluation
  3. Build teams! Beware hiring only people who are like you!
  4. Consider requiring key employees to sign non-competition agreements
  5. Consider pre-employment drug testing and medical screening

We coach managers to carefully evaluate personality and relationship requirements. Do you want short-term or long-term employees? Should employees be friendly under stress? Do you want employees who prefer details or a "big picture"? Do you need lone rangers or co-operative employees? Do you want proactive or reactive employees? Do you want someone who can easily predict problems - or someone who can easily find opportunities?

Since your coaching, we have three requirements when we hire staff; they must like people, they must often smile and they must be generally happy. You helped us set up good interview strategies and you helped some of our existing staff clean up their blocks to happiness ... THAT ALONE was well worth any effort. London, UK

Our systemic coaching can help you identify exactly which skills you need - and provide you with ways for identifying people with those skills. We use a synthesis of Myer's Briggs, LAB metaprogram and our own goal-diagnosis, trauma testing and systemic diagnosis to help you evaluate current staff, vacant positions and prospective employees.

Before Firing or Downsizing:

  • Have you cut out all unnecessary effort?
  • Have you managed workplace stress?
  • Have you rewarded profitable behavior?
  • Have you encouraged employee creativity?
  • Have you planned the actions of key people?

Firing is stressful for employees, for managers, and for remaining staff. Here are a few guidelines:

Firing Tips

Systemic Solutions can coach managers to

  1. to be patient, supportive and firm
  2. deal with complaints, excuses, justifications and blame
  3. to terminate employees with minimum stress
  4. See Downsizing and Productivity for more tips

In a 1995 survey of 1,200 workers by Yankelovich Partners for William M. Mercer, Inc., more than 80% of American workers said that they could improve their productivity by an average of 25%. About 25% of workers felt that they could improve their productivity by 50% or more.

If those figures are only half true, how do managers PREVENT
massive productivity increases?

Inspire Employees

Systemic Solutions can coach managers to

  1. promote and reward high (yet achievable) performance objectives
  2. provide an efficient, responsive, fair and productive environment
  3. provide ways to achieve personal goals inside organizational goals
  4. listen, listen and then listen some more
  5. provide a healthy, safe, secure, and accessible workplace

We also coach managers to show personal charisma and the ability to inspire as executive qualities. If you cannot inspire employees with your dynamic leadership and vision, at least avoid making threats.

We help managers avoid over-control or under-control, and provide strong support. We help people manage for results, not for show.

Involve Employees

Do you want telephone coaching in systemic leadership?

  • Support the professional development of executives, managers and supervisors
  • Emphasize performance management to new supervisors and managers
  • Attract and retain a diverse workforce
  • Train employees in company policies and their implementation
  • Communicate the organization's vision, values and expectations
  • Interview all employees at least annually
  • Involve employees in controlling costs

Every workplace and workforce will change - including yours. Each new program will highlight personnel and training deficiencies. Each change will require that executives become more creative in managing human resources while keeping pace with technology. "Well begun is half done".
