Boom! With People...today
Having experienced building impactful teams in some of the world's most demanding business cultures over the last 25 years, I know how critical it is to create powerful relationships with key stakeholders and peers.
Without having strong bonds and connections within organisations across all layers, levels and markets, the things you need to deliver will fail. Without allies, you won't win. And without backers at the top, you'll never reach your full potential.
I've worked with coaches, CEOs, board teams and professors to understand what they look for and advise their people to do to make these connections - and distilled all of these learnings for you.
What we found feels counter-intuitive to a lot of leaders when it comes to creating impactful relationships. So, take the competitive advantage, work with these insights and tools and create the kind of impactful relationships you want to see for yourself that makes you really Boom! With People.
I didn't feel worthy of my first Board role
I thought that I was way out of my depth.
It's a huge responsibility and there I was sitting around the table with people a lot older than me, more experienced and who had proven their chops at this level.
People who were highly confident of their position and skills. Who were clear about what they brought to the table (or so I thought) and spoke with gravitas, clarity and sense. Who all seemed to have skills I lacked, were all powerfully connected (or so I thought), had gelled and were clear on the expectations of each other.
I worried about how to connect more deeply with the group. How could I communicate what I brought to the table? Did they know or care what I was able to do? How could I influence more impactfully? What could I leverage that would really help me stand out as a deliverer and impactful Board member?
I started to make real progress once I started to Unblock and debunk the myths I'd told and retold to myself over the years.
I was always told that I had a strong network of people and was great at building and galvanising relationships across teams and businesses.
I realised that, there wasn't any rocket science to building these relationships. When I broke it down, I distilled it all into a series of simple models that I then, systematically, used in every Board position I've held since then.
And it's not about being liked, or pleasing people. It's about bringing to the fore the visceral human connections and skills that we innately have but often get shrouded by fear, lack of confidence or the unreal stories we tell ourselves.
You see, once I'd worked in my first Board for a while, I realised everything wasn't what it seemed. People weren't as clear as I thought they were. Neither were they as aligned. And that presented an opportunity.
I focussed on self-awareness, deeper learning and practice of the visceral skills I had plenty of and bringing those into the Boardroom.
It transformed my ability to create meaningful and impactful relationships with peers and stakeholders in the businesses I led as well as those I work with now.
I use these insights with Board teams and C-Suite execs to help them firstly reconnect to themselves and then to their roles and finally to the value they want to bring to the business.
The techniques and tools are simple to learn but the real impact comes with continual, relentless and accountable use of them.
Now you can access these Boardroom tools for yourself and start to create the stakeholder and peer relationships based on value you want to see. Become the leader you want to be and Boom! With People.
