Managers and leaders have a profound impact on the health, happiness and productivity of their teams and if they are senior, the whole organisation. When they fail to deal with their own pressures and stress, others feel the consequences.

In today’s challenging business and work settings, where budgets are tight, and competition fierce, being able to support, coach and motivate your staff is essential.

This can be addressed by individual, team and SLT programmes involving group and 121 coaching in:

  • Supporting and motivating staff
  • Coaching your staff
  • Managing your own stress levels
  • Developing your own and your team’s Emotional Intelligence

Transformation Process

Being & Doing Manager's

Transformation Process

Do you … 

  • Frequently feel overwhelmed by everything that you have on your plate.
  • Find you are constantly firefighting, never getting around to strategic work.
  • End up doing your team’s work rather than finding the time to coach and develop them.
  • Avoid having difficult conversations with them about their performance.
  • Provide feedback but performance does not improve.
  • Have a team that are not pulling together.
  • Have individuals who are taking up too much of your time.
  • Lose patience with people around you.
  • Lose sleep worrying about work or things outside of your control.

How can you change this?

This Being & Doing Manager’s Transformation Process is designed with the purpose of helping you over three months to take regular action, review your progress, learn something new, take more action, and repeat the cycle every fortnight:

This will enable you to bring about sustainable change in how you think, feel, manage yourself, as well as your team.

To support you in changing you will receive …

Self-assessment questionnaire to help you to define your goals before you start the process. The questionnaire also helps us to select managers who are ready to take the action to bring about the sustainable changes they want to make.

Fortnightly Being & Doing Action Groups - there are six, 1½ hour online group sessions during the three-month programme. See below for an overview of the structure of these online meetings.

Resources linked to your needs – after each Being & Doing Action Group you will receive a copy of the slides, relevant handouts, worksheets and links to podcasts or videos linked to what we were discussing.

Monday Motivational Messages for Managers – these provide you with reminders, hints, tips and links to relevant information to keep you on track.

Questions & Answers – the fortnightly Being & Doing Action Groups sessions are based on your needs, so you have chances to pose your questions beforehand to make sure you get the support you need.

Private Facebook page – participants find it useful to share their progress with each other between sessions. Including: challenges faced, successes, as well as asking questions. You can know you are not alone and receive encouragement from the group and from myself. If you do not have a Facebook account, this is not absolutely necessary to take part in the process.

Being & Doing online course – following the course, you have the option to take part in the next 8-week online Being & Doing course to recap on what we have covered in the previous 3 months, provide further support and bed down your learning. See https://inspiretransformation.co.uk/page/being-doing-8-week-online-course/ for more information.

Being & Doing Action Groups

Why ‘Being & Doing’?

As a manager, you might feel you just need to do more, do better, work harder at developing your team, getting them to perform effectively.

However, how you communicate, support, develop and motivate your team is clearly affected by your ‘Being’. Your Being is made up of your mindset, thoughts and beliefs which affect your mood and demeanour, which in turn affects how you communicate and work with others.

Just trying to change your behaviour, without addressing what is going on within you, is like expecting a car to run smoothly because you have pumped up the tires, put petrol in the tank, but forgot to put in any oil to lubricate the whole system.

If you have found it difficult to change in the past, then the trick is to work from the inside out, focus on your Being, to assist you in Doing what you need to do to manage in a more efficient, effective and enjoyable manner.

Being & Doing Action Groups

The core of the Being & Doing Manager’s Transformation Process are the fortnightly Being & Doing Action Groups. Each session will be tailored to the group’s needs, people will be asked to submit questions beforehand. However, there is a format that we will use, which has been tested on a group of volunteers in July and August 2021 and been shown to be very effective in helping people to change:

11.30 Welcome, overview

11.35 Check in with yourself – each week we use a different technique to increase your awareness of your thoughts, beliefs, mood, etc. This increases your Emotional Intelligence.

11.45 Review last two weeks - individually and/or in pairs:

  • Your successes
  • Your challenges
  • Your lessons learned

12.00 Q&A – questions submitted beforehand & asked during the session. Includes:

  • Input from me
  • Coaching the group and sometimes individuals.

12.40 Action Planning – in pairs, what are you going to:

  • Keep Doing - that works?
  • Develop Further?
  • Let Go Of?

12.55 Wrap up & inspiration

01.00 Finish
