From the desk of James McNamara, April 2017.

What is it that gives you the competitive edge? How can you out perform your competitors? What do you have that they don’t have and they can’t copy?

This is worth considering. You see, your competitors can copy your technology, your marketing, your strategy, your pricing and even try and steel your staff (maybe they are already doing some or all of these things).

There is one thing that your competitors can’t copy…

They can’t copy the passion and engagement of your team. They can’t just copy;

  • A dedicated team who goes the extra mile every day
  • A passionate team who betters their best each day
  • A team whose minds are galvanised to a central theme of success
  • A team who thinks and uses ingenuity to continuously improve
  • A team who can meet the challenge of change head on and build a better company

You know the type of team that I am talking about don’t you! This team out competes, out performs and out classes the competition. It takes purpose, commitment and great leadership skill to form and build a team like this.

An Important Business Lesson from the Sheraton Hotel https://jamesmcnamara.com.au/an-important-business-lesson-from-the-sheraton-hotel/ https://jamesmcnamara.com.au/an-important-business-lesson-from-the-sheraton-hotel/#respond Sun, 19 Mar 2017 12:18:13 +0000 https://jamesmcnamara.com.au/?p=1574 What I’m about to tell you is a true story concerning the Founder of Sheraton Hotels, Ernest Henderson. It’s all about how one good idea can change your business and your life.

One day Ernest drove all day to attend a business presentation. It was attended by owners of small businesses, just like you. Interestingly, no one from the big end of town was going to be there. Even so, Ernest drove many hours to attend.

When was asked why did he, the President of a company employing 20,000 people, drive all day to go to this presentation, he said…

“The subject was an important one, and if you can get one good idea,
wherever you find it, it can change your life.”

Think about that for a moment… what’s one good profit-boosting idea worth to your business? What’s it worth to your life?

With that in mind, I’d like to invite you to a special presentation on a very important subject…

“How to Make 2017 Your Best Year in Business Ever!”

If one good idea can change your life, then you’ll love this presentation. I’ll be covering 15 performance and profit-boosting strategies. You’re guaranteed to walk away with at least one good idea to put more profit in your pocket this year!

Best of all, tickets are FREE for local businesses owners like you. You can reserve a ticket for you and your business partner here.

I hope to see you in the room.

Leadership Training Brisbane – The Engaging Leader Part 1 https://jamesmcnamara.com.au/leadership-training-brisbane-the-engaging-leader-part-1/ https://jamesmcnamara.com.au/leadership-training-brisbane-the-engaging-leader-part-1/#respond Sun, 12 Mar 2017 11:52:57 +0000 https://jamesmcnamara.com.au/?p=1273 James McNamara introduces “The Engaging Leader – Notes From The Field”. Click play to listen. Fill transcription included below…

Transcription of James McNamara’s Audio Recording

I’ve just been in the office reflecting on the last decade or so of my experience in leadership development and employee engagement. I just couldn’t resist sharing a few thoughts and ideas…

Firstly, if you consider the statistics on employee engagement, they’re terrible. Even worse, they’re not getting much better. Just take a look at the graph below.

You can see that, for Australia and New Zealand, employee non-engagement or active disengagement accounts for 76% of the workforce. And for my colleagues in North America and in Europe, the figures there are not much different.

WARNING: this doesn’t bode very well for embracing the consistent and accelerating rate of change facing organisations today, let alone what coming in the very near future.

Now, there are a lot of factors that are attributed to employee engagement. Even so, the research has shown that there is one enabler, above all else, that improves employee engagement. It is the direct line supervisor. For front line workers, that’s the team leader. For the team leaders, it’s the middle manager. For middle managers, it’s the executive. The importance of improving communication, influence, and leadership skills across the breadth of your organisation is absolutely paramount! It is more important now than ever before too.

I’m inviting you to come with me on a little journey with me. It’s a journey that I’ve called The Engaging Leader: Notes from the field. You see, I’ve worked with managers for well over a decade now, hundreds of them and I’ve steadily unpacked the leadership challenges that beset managers at work. There is a pattern. A pattern of chinks in the management armour. Fixing these releases new and powerful results.

I’m going to share these insights in my upcoming blog posts.

Firstly, I’m going to talk to you about the importance of speaking the language of why. It’s just so important that managers at all levels, not just the senior executive, develop their capability to talk with the team members about the direction that the organisation is heading in. They need to be able to paint a picture of what the organisation will look like in the future (when we have ‘succeeded forward’ together). It is also paramount that all managers can talk to team members about how we behave on that journey.

In the second post, I’m going to talk to you about a very powerful ingredient to successful leadership. An ingredient that’s as important to leadership as seasoning is to a delicious soup. I’ll be sharing a fabulous analogy about this and some very contemporary research that I’m sure you’ll be interested in.

In the third post, I’ll cover the idea that one size does not fit all. After all, if all you have in your toolbox is a hammer, then everything looks like a nail. I’ll be talking about how to improve a leader’s to enable them to have more than one approach, depending on what the circumstance demands.

In the final post in this short series, I’m going to talk about understanding the patterns of people. Our leaders need to be able to understand how to work with, communicate with, build rapport with and influence all of the different (and difficult) personalities that they encounter at work. This is the key to effectively influencing change in thinking and behaviour that leads to new and improve results.

I’m looking forward to sharing these insights with you and inspiring your own leadership thinking.

Until next time, make a positive difference!
