OUR SERVICES

LEADERSHIP/STRENGTHS – DEVELOPMENT

Leadership in action during good times means employees are focusing on their strengths and healthy workplace conditions drive growth and innovation. Leadership in difficult times positions a company to weather tumultuous storms.

Ask about customized one-on-one coaching programs designed to teach and practice key leadership techniques and behaviors.

 

CHANGE MANAGEMENT

All businesses go through stages. Many companies and leaders can benefit from an objective partner who thoughtfully and strategically navigates them through change. Understanding and customizing the right organizational programs, processes, techniques and tools to deploy is paramount.

Partnering with our clients, Leader Sauce works effectively and thoughtfully to manage through change.

TALENT/PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT

Good/great managers separate themselves from average/poor managers by understanding the company’s values, the nuances of the positions they oversee, and the skills and experience of each person they manage. Next, they provide the right feedback, managing each team member so as to maximize that employee’s engagement and performance.

Custom tools, training, coaching and facilitation develop managers from “good” to “great”.

 

TEAM DEVELOPMENT

Putting talented and experienced people together doesn’t guarantee they work well together as a team. Team facilitation, coupled with custom training and strengths programs, can propel your team(s) to success. Team development and facilitation also arms your crew with the tools they need to self-correct when they veer off course.

Leader Sauce unequivocally advocates for and develops strong teams.

“The team that became great didn’t start off great – it learned how to produce extraordinary results”. –Peter Senge.

 

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

It’s truer now than any other time in history: it’s your culture and your employees that give your company it’s unique, competitive advantage. Engaged employees produce more positive interactions and deliver more creative/innovative solutions than their counterparts working diligently for their paycheck. Engaged colleagues treat your clients better, are more invested and achieve more on a daily basis.

Leader Sauce delivers employee engagement surveys, programs and tools to help your managers keep their teams engaged and help managers get the best out of each individual.

7 Common Management Dysfunctions that Leader Sauce Helps Prevent

“I am my position”

Confuses loyalty to a position with the person’s identity. The focus is now on that person’s position vs understanding what happens when other positions have to interact with him/her.

The enemy is out there

Blaming others or outside events when things go wrong. This is a by product of “I am my position” because it’s rooted in the focus of our positions so much so that we can’t see how our actions affect others.

The illusion of taking charge

Occurs when an organization/department or manager thinks they are being proactive, but they are really just being reactive, maybe even emotional.

The myth of the management team

Fighting for turf, focusing on not being wrong, breaking down under pressure.  “Skilled incompetence — teams full of people who are incredibly proficient at keeping themselves from learning.” – Chris Argyris

The fixation on events

When your thinking is dominated by short term events.

The parable of the boiled frog

When an organization/department/or person has been lulled into a false sense of security and gets into a state where they cannot see the great threats that are around the corner.

The delusion of learning from experience
