Whatever you may believe, there is no one-size-fits-all in being a great leader. Different leaders have different styles and what works for one may not work for someone else.
In my experience people who want to step into a leadership role do it for one of two reasons.
“In most organisations, a maximum of 20-30% of people are engaged.” That’s the ball park figure and its not what any leader wants to hear. At least 70% of your teams come to work, do what they need to do to meet performance standards and go home knowing they haven’t done their best work.
Every business is looking for the edge on how to be more profitable. The amazing thing is that there is one thing which has been shown again and again to improve the financial performance of businesses by at least 10%. Yet the vast majority of organisations don’t do it.

There is a strange myth that has developed around the concept of leadership. It seems to be viewed as a magical power that is granted to a select few at birth so that, at the right time, they can appear and influence history.
For many years I have had the pleasure of representing organisations as a keynote speaker and a coach. Recently I had the opportunity to be a part of a brand new initiative that the awesome company Willmott Dixon are launching.
If you are a leader in business, you will be only too familiar with the challenges to have a clear and tangible view of where you are going.
It has been a busy month in Sport. The World Cup, Wimbledon, The British Grand Prix, The Tour de France and, next week, The Open. I made some predictions in this week’s Coffee Cup Coaching session and I was wrong but I still believe “it’s coming home”.
I am a world-renowned speaker who loves to inspire people to see things from new perspectives and dedicate themselves to their own development, both personally and professionally.
I was delighted to be the keynote speaker at an important conference for physical education teachers at the home of the England football team, St Georges Park in Burton on Trent.
Take ten minutes to grab a cup of coffee and invest in your own development. Each week I’ll be bringing you coffee-cup’s worth of coaching. I’ll give you new perspectives and bring you the combined wisdom of the brightest and the best business leaders in the world.
