Creating Healthy Leaders…

Helping Young Leaders Become Wise Before They Grow Old…

Years of schooling and a lifetime of internet research makes knowledge readily accessible to anyone. But sifting through all that knowledge and knowing when and how to apply it to real life situations is challenging. It takes time and experience to turn that knowledge into wisdom, so tapping into the experiences of someone who’s already traveled that road can speed up the journey. enLumen Leadership Services is here to help with that.

Career transitions create demands for new skills. What serious athlete doesn’t engage a coach to develop essential skills?   In Leadership Pipeline, Ram Charan, Stephen Drotter, and James Noel describe career passages when a person goes from managing themselves, to managing others, to managing managers, and so on up the chain. At each passage, leaders need to learn new ways to use their time, new skill requirements, and new work values. For example, becoming a manager of others requires developing a value for finding fulfillment not just in one’s own work, but also in what others do under our leadership. enLumen Leadership Services is here to help with that.

Helping Mature Leaders Create Organizations Where Young Leaders Thrive…

Your legacy depends on whether you’ve created an organization that is ready to be passed on to the next generation.

ChrisMost leaders are in their current roles because they’ve proven themselves to be good at something. They have a set of skills and knowledge and have demonstrated that they know how to use them.

But as has often been said, “what got us here won’t get us there”. The speed of change, technological advances, the complexity of global problems, and the values embraced by our culture are a few of the reasons why leadership itself is changing.  Emerging approaches to leadership would not likely have worked a couple of decades ago, and historical leadership won’t serve us well in the future. enLumen Leadership Services is here to help with that.

Even if you have a healthy future-oriented perspective, no one is gifted at everything. So a good leader needs to know his/her strengths and weaknesses so the strengths can be applied effectively and the weaknesses complemented and compensated for. In some cases, latent strengths simply need to be developed. enLumen Leadership Services is here to help with that.

Environmental changes and different phases of an organization’s life-cycle call for different skills. But it’s not easy making room for the essential task of building the skills that will be needed around the next bend. enLumen Leadership Services is here to help with that.

Sometimes leaders just have a hard time finding people who are willing to speak truth to them, challenge their assumptions, and reflect their own ideas back to them to see how they hold up. Others within the organization, no matter how well-intentioned, often have too much of an insider’s perspective, are afraid to be completely forthcoming, or have their own agendas. enLumen Leadership Services is here to help with that.

enLumen Leadership Services provides one-on-one coaching and mentoring for mature leaders who recognize their future success requires some changes to their leadership style.  Change is hard, but if you’re willing, we’re here to help.
