Many executives just don’t have the time or headspace to groom their managers. I spend a lot of time talking to my clients and peers, and I hear how worried some of them are of looking at the fact that their team members aren’t growing competently or fast enough to keep up with the demands of their business.
Throughout my career, I have been trusted to lead as Chief Product Officer and Director of Product and took a role as a founder/CEO of my companies. I understand how challenging it is to be a leader. Hence, I know that you, as fellow leaders, must attend to your business with prudence and, at the same time, nurture your people.
When your teams can self-manage effectively to support the shared company goals, you will have more time to focus on the business. I’ll coach your teams to operate orienting towards goals, instead of tasks. So, you’ll hear less about updates of their to-do lists, but more about the progress of their commitments.
I am not referring to running a one-day leadership workshop or presenting a fancy PowerPoint. But, I will join and observe your teams operating on the ground and provide real feedback. It about staying together “in the arena,” borrowing the term from the famous Roosevelt’s speech.
In the end, I don’t want to see leaders spend their limited 24 hours mostly doing team coordination. Running a business is hard; building a successful one is even harder. Let me help you nurture your teams (i.e. your execution muscle) to self-coordinate, so as a leader you can have more focus and energy on building your business and realizing your vision.
This is what I do through *Product Narrative*.
