My objective is simple - to help leaders and organisations beat their challenges, unleash their full potential, deliver success to achieve their vision. With insights and ideas from 30 years unique experience as a leader in military, business and government I've created a 3 step system to do just that. Enabling everyone to develop their own 3 step action plan for immediate impact. Its simply about getting done what needs to be done. In addition my insights as one of HRs Most Influential Thinkers 10 times in annual awards over past 11 years, Hon Visiting Professor of Transformational Leadership at City Business School, London, and neuroscience accredited executive coach allow me to give leaders effective tools for action and success. Based on my experience I've developed a simple step by step system which achieves just that by everyone creating their own inspiring 3 step personal action plan to implement immediately to do what the organziation needs to be done. I've inspired 21,000+ leaders in 186 organizations in 28 countries, at corporate events and industry conferences, by revealing the power of their own experiences, then adding my insights, hard data, success stories and neuroscience, so everyone has the insights and tools to create their personal 3 step action plan for success. As a business and leadership expert I've been interviewed on TV 350 + times, including CNN, CNBC, BBC, quoted in Wall Street Journal, FT, Forbes, Business Week and others, written 5 books on leadership, one the 1st on strategic leaders development, and written articles for professional publications from CEO and CFO magazine to HR magazine, Healthcare and Retail. That's great but above all I'm inspired by helping others to inspire themselves to become their best selves and make their organisations successful inspiring great places to work. Its feedback like this that truly inspires me : “This was an absolutely amazing keynote that totally aligned with what I want the leadership team to do. Your message was so clear, so easy to understand. Its a true enabler to help us create value for the business going forward. It was fantastic.” - Peter Nolan, CEO BD Global Pharma.
Making customers happy doesn't have to require a lot of resources and effort; the simplest strategies can sometimes be the best.
What are the factors that enabled some organizations to get through, and which of these are indicators of how organizations and their leaders can be successful in the future?
Being a great leader requires more than delegating tasks to employees and meeting business goals. Each individual employee within an organization has different needs, and the role leadership plays in meeting those needs and empowering employees to contribute their expertise can have a direct impact on a business’s bottom line.
Business leaders carry the weight of their organizations on their shoulders. In addition to ensuring ideas come to fruition and customers are satisfied, executives also have the added pressure of ensuring employee needs are being met. These priorities can place a considerable strain on a leader even in times when a business is fairing well.
It takes a workforce with a variety of skills to build and sustain a successful business. Even in the tech field, non-tech professionals such as those in sales or marketing are necessary components of the team, especially in the early stages of the business. Equity compensation is one way leaders can reward these early-stage hires for their commitment to the business’ growth; however, each offer must be made with consideration.
The business world moves fast, and companies that aren’t able to keep up run the risk of falling behind. Building a sustainably successful company requires that leaders understand just how much the business can and will change over time.
Considering what’s optimal — for the employee, the role and the organization — is key.
If you're concerned about meeting fatigue among your remote workforce, try these strategies to ensure each virtual gathering has a clear purpose.
Transparency in your customer communications is a surefire way to encourage loyal, lasting relationships with them.
Leaders and organisations success is often hindered by unexpected or hidden challenges, It’s my job to help them beat these, and get done what needs to be done. Example; up to 60% of people probably aren't giving their best, impacting performance, profits, customer service, innovation, agility, risk management. Through simple steps you can potentially get up to 30% more effort from 60% of people that could potentially put 10% on bottom line for free. My interactive tailored keynotes & Masterclasses use a simple step by step system so everyone builds a personal 3 step action plan to create a wave of energy to immediately beat their challenges. For C suite these combine into a powerful focused tool via common actions and language across the organisation to get done what needs to be done. What do people say about what was achieved ? “We had a fabulous session with Chris. He really worked his magic to bring leadership to life, when you have someone come in, read the audience and understand what we need out of them to be successful it's really inspiring. Chris has done an excellent job of reading the teams and helped us develop specific actions so we can all be better leaders.” – Head of Marketing, Dematic, Global Logistics. “I've read books and listened to talks on leadership over many years but yours was the most inspirational and sensible approach Ive heard that gave absolute clarity. I thank you for your outstanding keynote.” – Commanding Officer, British Army Medical Rgt, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
