Trusting your own potential
Personal effectiveness is influenced by a range of factors. One of them is the quality of the relationships you maintain. This determines to a significant extent the quality of your work as well as your own degree of satisfaction. Another factor is the extent to which you succeed in influencing your environment in a positive way. All factors related to your personal effectiveness call for clear insights into your own character and personality, your usual and preferred work strategies, and your set of values in life and work. Finally, you need to determine your own communication strategies as well as those demonstrated by your colleagues, managers, clients and suppliers.

In order to stay healthy and happy in a demanding work environment, it is important that you take good care of yourself, that you set the right priorities and that you stay in touch with your environment. We use coaching sessions to help you find – or perhaps redefine – the balance you need. We can also show you how to stay in control and on top of events. After all, it is you who holds the steering wheel in navigating your career.
As a manager you are focused on tasks and results as well as your staff, in line with the targets set by your organisation. Our coaches can offer you support in enhancing and developing your management skills. They can also act as independent sparring partners to address current work issues.
The first step in effective leadership is to trust and rely upon your own potential. This gives you the flexibility you need to serve the many needs of your team members, your clients, your network and your organisation. What would you like to achieve? Do you wish to explore and expand your leadership potential? At Work Wise, we can share our expertise with you.
