At Bright Light Leadership we understand that leading a team or a dental practice, a business or a company is a unique skill - and one that requires nurturing, development and support.
That's why we were founded - with a very specific purpose;
"To help great businesses become excellent. To help excellent businesses become brilliant. And to help brilliant businesses sustain themselves. By doing this we will enhance profitability, increase economic prosperity, improve personal resilience and bring the joy back to doing business."
Bright Light Leadership was founded by the Managing Director of a UK-wide health business who had undertaken the role for 16 years. As an award-winning leader, including the Inspirational Leader Award from the Sunday Times "Best 100 Companies to Work For" awards, it's not simply a matter of providing "training"- it's about combining your skills and insights with the experience and insight that can only be gained by taking responsibility for running a company. The highs. The lows. Sometimes the grinding normality! The joys of taking responsibility for delivering a result. And the disappointments that need to be managed along the way.
So we've sought to "crystallise" this leadership experience into a series of support programmes - all rooted in the practical challenges of business and ensuring that it's you who does the shining.
We believe that effective leadership can genuinely TRANSFORM the fortunes of an organisation. It can unlock potential in your teams and colleagues that your competitors will struggle to match.
For small and medium-size businesses it can bring a clarity and purpose to the company that ensures that all activities are effectively aligned.
It can improve staff engagement, retention and wellbeing and make a meaningful difference to the company's performance. Some research suggests as much as a 30% improvement in business performance from effective leadership.
This is not leadership "for the sake of it": this is truly Transformational Leadership!
Sometimes within a leadership role there's a need for a short, sharp, targeted programme of support. It could be focused around a big business issue, it could be about a re-structuring or it could be about developing and embedding a strategy. It could be about producing a Business Plan or a big presentation.
It's not to say that these are single points in time but it is to say that there's sometimes a need for a specific level of "additional" support to either get things moving or maintain momentum.
We work with Leaders to provide specific and targeted support to allow them to maximise their own effectiveness. And then we're gone... (leaving behind a comprehensive Action Plan for you to consider, naturally).
Sometimes what's required is a more ongoing programme of support for Leaders. To be able to work alongside someone who will provide an external perspective on some of the challenges that you're facing. Someone who will provide you with an additional perspective to the business opportunities that you're seeing and who will help by providing new insights and some potentially fresh thinking on a more regular basis.
We guarantee that this activity will align with your business strategy because we'll take the time to understand what it is - so you can maximise your own personal contribution to your business success.
We also run "standalone" Leadership Development Training - which can be personalised to your specific requirements and delivered with the full engagement of your team.
And all of these come with our (c) "Guaranteed No Role-Play" commitment!
So give us a ring if you're considering some forward-thinking Leadership Training.
We can provide a tailored presentation, focused around Leadership, for your conference, company meeting or team event.
This is often helpful to prompt new thinking and to inspire people to consider how they can change and adapt their leadership style to help deliver the company's strategy.
