job done.

Delivering results in a demanding context is an essential skill for the future of work. Yet results can be hard to achieve, and even harder to lead, if leaders lack the capability or confidence to overcome common friction points that distract people and derail progress.

When giving leaders the tools and techniques to overcome issues preventing performance, research shows bite-size is the right size. These Accelerator modules have been designed to deliver fiercely practical strategies for seven common friction points that get in the way of work getting done.

Why bite-size works.

When it comes to engaging people, changing behaviour and achieving results, research shows bite size is definitely the right size.

Maximise benefits

Accelerators trim the fat of traditional programs to focus on the meaningful content that matters most. Practical strategies that address real life issues, at the time they are required, to fast track results and foster a culture of high performance.

Limit disruption

Taking people off-site for days at a time comes at a cost. A bite-size approach is a lot more productive. People don’t need to be replaced, or resent being taken off-site as work piles up, which really increases the likelihood for learning.

Learning transfer

If you want to get fit, being motivated to be stronger, leaner and fitter isn’t enough. You also have to do the work. Each Accelerator includes implementation tactics so people break a sweat and put their new skills to work, minus the Lycra.

Accelerator modules.

Programs packed with practical tools and techniques to overcome common friction points that prevent performance being realised.

Find a way. Don’t lose your way.

Performing in a modern day workplace means you rarely have the right amount of time, money, resources or experience. This is why doing the difficult work is so valuable. It’s hard to get done.

Forward thinking leaders find a way rather than lose their way when things get tough. These Accelerator modules help to navigate issues that make work hard and implement actions to minimise their impact.

At the center of everything is leadership and being able to be at your best when times are at their toughest. The level of your leadership will amplify or dilute your impact across the other six skills.

 

Build the assets of achievement

The ability to push boundaries, embrace challenge and manage set backs is essential for doing meaningful work. Yet this can be hard when the difficult boss, demanding client, sick child at home, or critical colleague interferes with your ability to perform. When you are bumped off course you need the tools and techniques to find your way back. It’s how high performers rise above the drama and remain resilient when doing results based work.

You will gain the capability and confidence to:

  • Built your own personal strengths profile
  • Shaped your life to better access your strengths
  • Identified common traits that derail energy and effort
  • Developed resilience to bounce forward from set backs

Empower people to perform at their peak

We often think work will be quicker, easier and more likely to be done right if we do it ourselves. We then wonder why we get dragged into the detail and have less time to lead.

Being a dynamic delegator builds capacity and capability and sends a strong message you are ready for a more senior leadership role.

You will gain the capability and confidence to:

  • Manage emotional people and problems

Real world results.

New skills that don’t get put to work are like a cheque that never gets cashed. Worthless. So I follow five principles to make the work, work.

Carefully craft experiences

All too often people dread training. They think about the work piling up while they are stuck in a program that moves a little too slow and is disconnected from their current reality. My programs are engaging, informative and highly interactive which pass the ultimate test: people rarely check their devices during the day.

Build behaviour change

We want people to change the way they work. For that to happen you have to move beyond vague intentions or loose commitments that people don’t find compelling. Every program I deliver includes a powerful process for people to build a series of new habits that help them start, and stick with, newly acquired skills.

Serve a bigger picture

The work we do needs to be part of a bigger plan to have any real impact. A change plan, business initiative, team intervention or leadership upgrade. Far too often consultants roll out a pre-fabricated program. I work relationally, not transitionally, and strive to be a strategic partner that builds a better future.

Fight the forgetting curve

Even the best run programs have to fight the forgetting curve. The fact that people forget a lot of what they learn as soon as they walk out of the room. Along with elegant resources that we guarantee won’t be filed and forgotten, participants receive a comprehensive 90-day post program support to encourage progress.

Don’t fight busyness

We are in a world where busy is the new normal. We are constantly overconnected, overcommitted and overwhelmed. So this is our starting point. The tools and techniques we provide have been designed to integrate and improve the way people work everyday. This means, they can invest less effort but have more impact.

Don't take my word for it.

Practical

Andrew ran the most practical and interactive session we have seen in our network. His delivery got people up and moving and applying their learning in a meaningful way. I’ve never seen the group so eager to be involved in a presentation. He had the room in the palm of his hand.

Manningham Business Network

Engaging

I have attended a number of Andrew’s Accelerator programs and intend to go to a number more. Engaging and insightful, I always walk away at the end of the program feeling like I am ready, willing and able to tackle my toughest challenges. Feeling bullet proof is wonderful for my motivation.

Susan Evans, Principal
Ballandean State School

Revolutionary

I was slightly skeptical about the bite-size format and the benefits we would achieve, but am happy to say Andrew proved me wrong. Achieving some great results in such a short period of time has revolutionized my thinking about how we deliver similar training programs in the future.
