Growing your leadership skills and becoming a more effective leader can be a huge roller coaster ride. One day you feel like you are "killing it" and then the next, ...well not so much.
Often you have to go through a huge "trial and error" process to determine what approach will work for you in a given situation. And the "error" part of the "trial and error" process represents lost productivity and compromised performance.
You also may find yourself losing credibility (the currency of influence) instead gaining it. There is clearly a cost to coming across as a leader who lacks confidence or worse yet, over compensates with ineffective aggression or arrogance.
As a result, there is a ton of missed opportunity associated with developing your leadership talent "on the fly". There are clear and obvious compromises to your performance, your results and even your future potential.
Fortunately, there's a better way...
Hello. My name is Gord Aker and I am passionate about effective leadership and committed to providing you with the support you need to develop your true potential, quickly and sustainably.
While I am a trained and ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC), my engagement does not stop with coaching. When you need it, I am prepared to offer leadership consulting, leadership mentoring and even leadership advisory services. There should be no doubt that when it comes to developing your personal leadership potential, coaching is the way to go but there are other tools in the toolbox that can be used when appropriate and your situation demands it.
If you have ever taken a leadership course or attended a leadership conference, then you know the challenges of actually applying what you learn in your real world, real job environment. With my approach, we take your development beyond just the acquisition of knowledge or the development of skills. Together you and I ensure that you are accountable to yourself for deploying these lessons in your specific environment. This is not just talking about leadership development. This is about experiencing leadership development.
But perhaps the best thing of all is that my services are confidential, professional and impactful. This comes from helping you to understand the motivation, belief systems and perspectives that are underneath the surface, informing and influencing your behaviours and your results. As you identify and choose different perspectives that better serve your interests, your behaviours change automatically and in a sustained way.
