Developing leaders to communicate your vision, inspire trust and to drive and manage strategic change

Leadership involves creating a compelling vision of the future, communicating that vision, and helping people understand and commit to it—being an Ember Carrier. Managers, on the other hand, are responsible for ensuring that the vision is implemented efficiently and successfully.

Of course, these two roles overlap and for your organization to be fully effective, you need to fulfil both roles. After all, there’s no point energizing people to work towards a fabulous vision of the future, only to fall flat on your face when it comes to implementation.

What our senior consultants offer are the perfect double-edged sword—she takes your organizational goals and works with your leaders to fully equip them to be able to articulate and ‘sell’ the strategic aims, and then helps your team make it all happen. Your desired changes will be achieved because your leaders know what to change, and fully understand how to make that happen.

Contact us today to find out more.



Custom tools that drive strategic change implementation that’s goal-focused and urgency-driven

Strategic change is never going to work when your leaders are not fully equipped for the task—when they’re not true Ember Carriers. And ‘off the shelf’ solutions are never going to fix that. Every organization’s change goals are different and that means a custom tool set.

True leadership development is a complex process, which has different steps that take time to address things on a corporate level. Simply expecting your leaders to learn general strategies on the fly won’t fix anything—and that’s because it’s the application of the strategies that matters.

When your leaders work with our consultants they get the help they need that’s specific to your organization. There’s no fancy box with ‘leadership toolkit’ written on the side, but instead Mary will take time to learn both your organizational goals and your leaders’ current abilities to achieve those … then she gets down to work. The result is a team that’s truly ready to take their organization forward the right way … and when you need it.

Leading effectively requires the ability to think strategically and implement that strategy.

It’s a proven fact that people who understand how their roles support the goals of their organization are both more effective and more engaged. To help drive the achievement of that, leaders need to be strategic thinkers. They need to be Ember Carriers.

Once someone is hired, the on-boarding and integration process during the first 60 to 90 days is vital to fostering positive engagement. So is the leadership team’s ability to effectively communicate strategy and vision—and management’s ability to translate and link to that strategy and vision in each department.

If you were to look up the definition of Leadership Development in Wikipedia, here’s what you would find:

Leadership development expands the capacity of individuals to perform in leadership roles within organizations. Leadership roles are those that facilitate execution of a company’s strategy through: building alignment, winning mind-share and growing the capabilities of others.

And this is exactly what an Ember Carriers TEAM LEADERSHIP SOLUTION will provide— all the essential steps for taking your leaders to the next level and getting them to truly think and act strategically.
