The Empowerment Imperative

by | Nov 8, 2013

During this past week (ended 08th Nov) I attended three excellent events in Central Manchester, each with a distinct focus.

Yet the concept of the Empowerment Imperative straddled them all:

a) The Manchester Creative Studio school for 14-19 year opening Sept 2014 is the new type of workbased, work styled environment where students will have the opportunity to forge a career path – with the right guidance. The plans are really very exciting.

b) Grant Thornton’s Agents of Growth event on Medium Sized Businesses (MSB’s) highlighted amongst other things, the need for courageous leadership to take more calculated risks and act on initiative.

And finally c) and this is at the core of LMI’s philosophy and values, that selling is a career of which people who ‘sell’ should be proud. ‘Ban the title of Business Development’ said John Leach of Winning Pitch. Everybody is responsible for selling something to someone and organisationally, nothing happens until a sale is made. It is a career that requires a combination of skills and attitudes. It takes time to learn and when carried out by having a servants heart, a be of service attitude, conducted ethically, relationship based, is one of the most rewarding ways of making a living.

Leaders I speak to will find it easy to agree with the sentiments above. But what can they do to help people move up one step from where they stand today? Read on …

Kindly hosted by Yorkshire Bank, the Leadership Lunch is for business owners, leaders and senior executives.LMI-UK Leadership Development

The topic for discussion over lunch is The Empowerment Imperative.

Tapping into the values, vision and feelings of colleagues is critical in nurturing their commitment and improving their results because how people view their work has such a significant impact on their short, medium and long term productivity. In this area lies the signficant challenge of helping team members to capture the spirit and mission of their work: the empowerment imperative.

Attending this event might change change your world just a little, however it will challenge your perspectives, and that can only be a good thing right?

Lunch and refreshments are provided so it more than just your mind that will be nourished. The event is limited to 16 people and places and are reserved on a first come first served basis. Please reply or contact me NOW to reserve yours.
