Managers Are An Unaffordable Luxury


Leadership Training for Managers

Doing more, better, faster, with less is driving global business.  A cadre of professional managers running organisations is going the way of the typing pool.

Organisations can’t afford managers to simply manage anymore - they need them to be leaders as well.  The solution is our Leadership Training for Managers Course.  Before we go too much further, what is the difference between a manager and a leader.  Simply put, leaders build people and manage processes.  Managers just manage processes.

Who Should Attend

This is not the course for beginner managers – you need to have suffered as a manager first!!!  Real world experience with how tough it is to get people to do what they should do, will help you to understand how this Course makes your life so much easier.  There is no great job security or promotion potential in just managing.  Organisations are desperate to develop people who can leverage the abilities of others and amplify the results, 1 + 1 = 5 style.  Managers who want to become more valuable to their organisations should take this course and get their careers moving.


How To Be A Real Leader, Not Just A Manager
Japan needs leaders now more than ever. The speed and complexity of business means we have to rely more on the quality of our people. The leaders job is different from the manager. Our managers take care of managing processes. The leader does that too, but additionally builds our people. If you can afford to hire nothing but geniuses, that is great and hats off to you. If like the rest of us, you have to create high quality staff, then you need to have leaders who understand their role properly. On The Job Training has run out of gas. Is this all your are pinning your future success on? The supremely mediocre themselves trained by their mediocre sempai or seniors, now leading the charge and responsible for your business edge through developing the quality of your team versus the competition.

How To Be A More Effective Leader
Time is the most crucial resource of any leader. Why do so many leaders squander their time? They are spending the majority of their day doing low value tasks, when they should be concentrating on the things which only they can do. Delegation works but only when it is done correctly. Because they can't delegate, they have no time available to coach their people. How can we correctly educate the next generation of leaders if there is insufficient coaching going on? Communication skills are one of the keys to leadership effectiveness. You have to wonder then, why are so many leaders hopeless speakers? How can we fix these problems? This video has the answers.
How To Master The Keys To Leadership
What should leaders be good at? There are many things to do as a leader, but are we concentrating on the areas where we can get the greatest leverage and lift? We need to be better with our Self Direction, People Skills, Process Skills, Communication and Accountability. How can we do all that? This video explains the way forward.


We are not saying managers are not important - we need them to run the place properly.  We are just pointing out we need more from them!  The organisation has various processes which must be completed efficiently, completely and reliably.  This is the classic "getting the paperwork" sorted. Attention to detail is paramount.  Multi-tasking, time management, personal effectiveness all contribute to process success.  The manager must make sure these activities are being carried out correctly and so the supervision of staff is a key role.  If the operation is not coordinated, then there is potential for chaos.  Usually though, it is more likely we are dealing with inefficiencies and

costly delays.

The manager has to monitor people’s activities to ensure the priorities are properly prioritised, the urgent is done first, the details are correct, the sequence is in proper play and the people are working correctly.  The "mice" on the treadmill need to be present and correct.  All this activity has to add up to planned outcomes.  These could be numbers around revenue, production volumes, quality milestones, speed of delivery, consistency etc.  The manager has to tally the score against the score sheet, note discrepancies and get these attended to promptly.

Whether new or mature organisations, the goal is to get to an equilibrium between competing demands, such that the whole organisation moves forward in a planned, expected manner.  Maintenance of systems is the goal.  The manager is the maintainer.

All of this sounds wonderful. Yes, we want our brand to be safeguarded by ensuring everything is working properly.  We want our salaries paid on time, thank you very much.  The question to ask though is whether just managing well is enough?   


We need our managers to be able to do all of this and more.  The ability to handle people is a critical skill in getting everyone doing what they should be doing, when they should be doing it, in the way they should be doing it.  The managerial role may seem mechanical but those pesky people keep popping up in the system and they resist mechanisation.  They have personalities, ambitions, biases, demands, failings and strengths.  A big confusing mess of humanity under the manager’s control and they need to be led as well as managed.  They are not a process!


Supervision is one level of interaction but this is inherently backward looking and historical in nature. Leaders are thinking about motivating people and looking forward.  Leaders are trying to understand what makes each person in the team tick.  They are trying to align the goals of the organisation with the inherent motivations of the individuals in their team, rather than trying the "inject the motivation syringe into their heads" approach.  Leaders need to have a reservoir of trust to make that work and that needs good human relations skills.

Leaders are pointing people toward the future not just reviewing the past.  They are working with the team to create a vision.  This may be a sub-vision of how to execute the organisation’s broader vision, itself perhaps designed on high during a directors’ offsite.  The section leader can’t change this lofty vision but they can lead the team to conjure up how to make it come to life.

Even with the vision a given, there is still an opportunity to have the team design a mini-vision for their section or department, that sits under the umbrella of the big picture. The point is to lead people, using an innovation  methodology, to an outcome where there is shared ownership of what was created.  Leaders always keep in mind that people "own the world they create",so getting the team involved is a critical skill.


Leaders are not able to function in stasis.  They know the competition never sleeps.  They know this is one marketplace and its name is "global".  The leader knows that incremental improvements may not be enough.  Breakthroughs are needed and these come from the people who work for us.  Does anyone remember this great thing in Japan called i-mode?  Gone!  Steve Jobs leading the team at Apple killed it off with an innovation.  Breakthroughs count and innovation is how to produce them.

Richard Branson has remarked that on April 1st, 1986 as a practical joke he announced a hoax that Virgin had created a supercomputer called Music Box that would let anyone, anywhere download any music they want.  Steve Jobs told him later that idea inspired him and Apple ultimately created iTunes, which would put a big hole in music store business and directly impact Branson’s own Virgin Megastores.  Virgin store managers "managing" a better process didn’t help, when leaders somewhere in California put Virgin’s music business to the sword.  Innovation counts and this requires the leader to tap into the full power of the team.

Change in organisations doesn’t happen by itself.  The leaders must get busy coaching their people, ensuring their skills are constantly evolving.  They are challenging them to go faster, further, higher.  This is not simply managing a process, this is igniting workplace enthusiasm to ensure the team themselves want to be better.

The typists have all departed the typing pool and moved on.  Managers who can only manage process are going the same way. The modern business requirement is to be able to both manage process and build your people.  Businesses slow to recognise this will be eating the dust of their competitors and wondering what happened.
