THE PROBLEM

You have been promoted. You have expectations. You have a lot of potential, but things are not going as expected. 

Let’s evaluate the situation: on a scale 1 to 5, how much do you agree with these sentences? Answer honestly:

Let's evaluate the situation: On a scale of 1 to 5, mark how much you agree with the following statements. Please be honest:

1 point: I do not agree at all

2. points: Do not agree 

3. points: I neither agree nor disagree

4. points: I agree to a large extent

5. points: I agree completely

The team does not respect you. (1-5)

You are overwhelmed and stressed. (1-5)

Your impact is not the expected one. (1-5)

You have no control over the team's performance. (1-5)

You don't know how to communicate effectively. (1-5)

Team performance is low. (1-5)

Now sum up the numbers you have marked for each sentence please. 

Here are your results:

 

24-30 Points        

You are overwhelmed. You need to take action now.

 

18-24 Points        

You are having a hard time as a leader. You should think of solutions before this generates a problem.  

12-18 Points        

You have some leadership areas to develop.

6-12 Points         

It seems you have everything under control.

If you have more than 18 points you are in a difficult spot, but you are not alone. 90% of the managers have problems on their new role because they are not equipped to lead their new team (1). They don’t talk about it because they fear judgement. What’s happening to you is completely normal.

Being promoted means that you were good in your prior job, but mastering skills isn’t the same as mastering interaction with people. It requires a completely different skillset.

If you don’t develop those skills it will cost you part of your psychological and physical health: stress, burnout, exhaustion and problems at home are some of the consequences I see in my clients. 

For you and your company it means losing money: miscommunication, errors, low productivity, low motivation, conflict, wrong allocation of resources, and lost of key talent, are just some of the problems you can fall into.

THE SOLUTION

To avoid those problems you have to develop your leadership skills: Communication, stress management, motivation, clear goals, resources allocation, talent management, conflict resolution, resilience… 

 

Nobody learns how to play tennis by looking at how Roger Federer does it or reading a book about it. You need to play and you need a trainer who observes you, corrects what you do, and gives you new ideas and strategies to elevate your game.

My job is to boost the skills that you need to succeed. We work together, creating personalized solutions for your real problems.

 

We will define your goals, you will communicate effectively and manage your stress. Your team will multiply its motivation. You will practice immediately with the tools I give you, experiencing the changes on the team and yourself in real time.  In four months, with this program, you will become a memorable leader.

THE PROGRAM

 

Once a week, you and I have a meeting for an hour with very specific goals in mind. 

 

In the first two sessions we analyze your problems and your leadership skills. With that information, I prepare an action plan that we implement in the next sessions. 

 

Sessions 3 to 15 are 100% hands on. We analyze the previous week’s leadership work, look for specific solutions, and I give you tools and goals for the next week. The problems are taken care as soon as they appear. The results are evident in real time.

 

In sessions 16 and 17, you have become a memorable leader. We analyze goals achieved and skills developed. I give you a report where you can see your evolution. There, you will find recommendations for the journey ahead. If your evolution is extraordinary, you will receive a Carmen Lopez certificate of leadership as well.

 

After the program you are fully equipped for your journey as a memorable leader. You will be able to do more with less effort, motivate your people, lower the turn over and rise the productivity. The company will be happy to have you on board.
