In the first stage, you yearn to make a difference, to change the status quo, to solve the problems and fill in the gaps you encounter, while motivating and inspiring your team to do the same.
Problem-solving, decision-making, negotiating and managing change are all skills you’ll master during the learn phase. Our methodologies guide you through every step, and the scalability of our coursework means that your team learns these tools and techniques right alongside you. Learning, in the beginning is fun... until it isn't. That's when you arrive at the next stage of the Lifecycle.
“Turn” refers to that stage at which the challenges of learning and mastering new tasks and thought processes reaches a natural turning point, and the going gets a little tougher. During this phase, it’s critical to dig in and move forward without turning back.
Expanded skills and refined capabilities multiply your options and potential gains. Leaders and their teams who reach this level of accomplishment earn credibility, confidence and competence in addition to financial rewards and professional recognition.
While it’s critical to celebrate and enjoy the hard-earned successes you and your team have earned, the next step is to “burn” off the comfort and complacency and prepare for the next challenges ahead.
