Leadership - It's not rocket science!

Posted by Tracy Powley 26/09/14

LeadershipIt’s the simple things which leaders do (or don’t do!) which make a difference.

This was the clear message from David MacLeod (Engage for success) and Chris Roebuck (visiting professor transformational leadership at Cass business school) who both spoke at last week’s IiP forum

How we agree!

So we thought we would share with you - courtesy of Chris’ talk - some of the very simple things you can do – starting now – which will improve your leadership and bring you better results from your people.

Actions you could do tomorrow that would improve performance:  
– Tell people what they do contributes to bigger picture + 28%
– Fair & accurate feedback day-to-day + 39%
– A good development plan supported by the line manager + 37%
– Showing employees you genuinely care + 25%

Overall …. a good line manager who inspires and
develops people can increase an individual’s performance AND potential by at least 30%   (Corporate Leadership Council N = 50,000)

(reproduced from Chris Roebuck Lead to Succeed:  simple steps to IIP success)

And as Chris points out – none of these costs money.... isn’t it a “no brainer”?!

To see how we can help develop your managers and leaders to create better motivation, engagement and performance take a look at our leadership development pages and our range of case studies or call us on 01903 732 782 or email us

Stella Chandler and I founded Focal Point on a shared belief that a training course run in isolation doesn't work. We passionately believe there must be support both before and after the training or coaching session itself for it to make a difference. When I am not facilitating sessions with clients or looking at ways to grow the Focal Point business, you will find me in a calming yoga class...
