STEP-INTO-MANAGEMENT

So often people are promoted into management roles because of their demonstration of competence, their ability to hit targets or to deliver projects. However ‘doing the doing’ is one thing but being the person who is managing the people who are ‘doing the doing’ requires an entirely different skill set that can leave new managers feeling confused and uncertain.

That’s where our ‘Step-into-Management’ Program provides managers with the appropriate training, support and challenge, equipping them with the skills to really excel at building successful teams.

After a detailed one to one diagnostic, delegates join the cohort for a series of practical workshops and commit to completing on-site projects in the workplace to embed the learning from each session.

Step into Management Cohort 4: 2020 – 2021 now open!

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed yesterday’s session. This was a real ‘gestalt moment’ of a day for me yesterday. Peter’s landing of his session on corporate governance was absolutely spot on. The perfect balance of education and inspiration. Elizabeth’s session on Emotional Intelligence was equally fabulous and has already helped me today. The perceptual positioning exercise was timely and invaluable and has already given me success with a member of my team today! Thank you to you two wonderful ladies (Elizabeth and Lily) and your fantastic team. I’m thrilled to be learning from you as I move through this stage of my professional journey.

I just want to thank you wholeheartedly for the support you’ve given me over the past 9 months. I really feel like I have a much rounder understanding of who I am as a leader and have learnt so many techniques for improving my ability to consider and involve others. You have played an instrumental part in supporting me through a particularly challenging time and have helped me to develop a level of resilience I never thought possible. I genuinely believe my sessions with you have played a huge part in getting me through one of the toughest experiences in my career. You have such an ability to re-focus and help me to step outside the situation and see things so much more clearly. Lily, you truly are a wonderful coach and human being!

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Lily as part of the syllabus of the Goldman Sachs 10KSB course covering Leadership, People and Growth.  The tools, guidance and insight she provided changed my game and improved my skills in these areas no-end, it has also helped develop the skills of other people within our business. It has given us absolute clarity on what we needed to do to build our business around our people and given us the ability to grow the great culture we had even further. From the very start I just felt that Lily was genuine, her style is truly engaging and her techniques and style keep you engaged and smiling throughout.

I graduated from her Strategic Leaders Programme last year and have absolutely loved every second of it. It’s definitely provided me with exactly what I needed - the perfect balance between support and challenge. The thing that makes this course stand out from the rest is everything is geared towards the practical application of the leadership learning back into your business. As a result, we’ve re-branded, re-structured and have a new strategy that has underpinned our growth and success over the past 18 months. If you’re considering investing in this course I would say ‘do it!’ ... I know it’s an investment you won’t regret.

The program that Morgan James developed, specifically for our business, team and way of working, was exceptional. Our assigned facilitator Michael was brilliant - he helped us to quickly gel as a team, allowing us to challenge each other in a safe environment. The Step into Management program, delivered by Lily and Paul, was a perfect fit for their needs and was tailored for our business. The delivery of the program was, again, excellent, the growth and development of all the mangers has been a huge success. Working with Morgan James has enabled me to develop a team that can run the business, leaving me to move away from day to day operations and concentrate on the future. I can’t recommend working with Morgan James highly enough. They were a key part of our jigsaw, enabling us as a team to believe in our Vision and turn the business around.

Whether you are a natural or otherwise, there is so much more to effective leadership than what you assume will make a team successful. Once the Strategic Leaders facilitator team have stripped away your pre-conceptions and bad habits and you accept what you don’t know, you can start on a path towards real improvement of yourself and your team. It’s hard, it's challenging but it’s absolutely worth it.

She's far too pretty and skinny. If she wasn't so ******* lovely, you'd have her put in a box. Seriously you can trust Lily to deliver the best. She's bloody brilliant at what she does.

Lily was delivering the leadership elements of the Goldman Sachs 10KSB programme when I met her. Consequently, when I graduated, along with others on the cohort, Lily offered us a continued learning experience via her ‘Growth Springboard’ Program. Three years on, myself and 5 other business leaders meet regularly, share our challenges (and solutions) and study best business practice, all facilitated by Lily. She is knowledgeable, challenging and has access to a myriad of business experts who support her in delivering Growth Springboard. Being part of this group has had a huge impact on my business and has given me exactly what I need, particularly during tough times. If you’re a business owner or a Managing Director and would like to make your business more enjoyable and more successful, I totally recommend you speak to Lily about joining a Growth Springboard Group.

We have been working with Lily on the Growth Springboard Program for almost 3 years now. We are a group of 6 business owners who all challenge & support each-other, and hold each-other accountable…thus preventing us from falling back into our comfort zones after the Goldman Sachs 10KSB course. We trust each-other implicitly & all feel that this is an essential part of our business…highly recommended!

I cannot praise the Step into Management course highly enough. Excellent coaches, delivery and content which challenges and inspires you to reflect and develop. Building on skills you already possess and nurturing skills that are newly acquired. Application of these skills is key and the activities set beyond the sessions take you outside your comfort zone, motivating you and ensuring continuous personal development, whilst growing and involving your team. Fantastic!
