Accompanying You On Your Leadership Journey

As a high performer, you are really good at what you do. Chances are that your company will recognize you by offering you promotions so that you can climb the corporate ladder.

You’ve worked hard to develop your talent and gain experience. It is highly likely that you were hired due to your abilities and high degree of integrity. Ironically, now that you are ready to make decisions and take action to pursue your next career move, you might be advised to “Play the Game” and to “Be mean” to get ahead in the organization, and your heart sinks. There is a better way.

You deserve better. You deserve to get ahead by being true to you!

The Great People Leader Mindset

As you step into your new formal leadership role, you might feel that you are not well equipped to be a Great People Leader, like you had envisioned.

You are not alone!

Many high performers get promoted into leadership roles without having invested the time and energy necessary to develop the proper mindset or build the necessary skills to connect with employees, colleagues, and management at the human level. At the same time, you are advised to “go forth and inspire and engage,” yet, no one provides you with the recipe on how to do that.

Chances are that your promotion is leading you to feel more stressed out than ever before. You may find yourself at a loss as to how to engage your employees to do excellent work and achieve results. In addition, your inbox is already overflowing with requests. Chances are that work keeps piling up for you and your team.

As senior management steps up the pressure, suddenly you may feel stuck in the middle, and can’t see a way out.

We can help!

At LYLI we accompany you on every step of your leadership journey, from aspiring leader to chief executive. We’ll help you to go within to gain greater clarity so that you can master the art of igniting passion and engagement at work by lighting a fire in the hearts of employees and colleagues at all levels.

By helping you to boost your ability to connect at the human level with people at work, employees and colleagues will want to do their very best to help you succeed, and they will be happier, healthier and more engaged. In turn, you will feel more confident and will love having a career that is more aligned with your passions, your interests, your talents, and your purpose.

Avoiding Burnout: Practicing Self-Care and Setting Healthy Boundaries

Often, high performers are the “Go to” people at the office.

Through her work and her extensive research gathered in over 25 years, the founder, Lisa Anna Palmer, has observed that there is a leadership gap that is at the root of workplace suffering.

This gap manifests at the individual level, with people accepting promotions without clarity about whether formal leadership is the right fit for them. In addition, there is a gap at the organizational level: there are far too many people occupying formal leadership roles who are not well equipped to connect at the human level.

Transforming into a Great People Leader

We can help!

Through her work and her extensive research gathered in over 25 years Lisa has observed that there is a leadership gap that is at the root of workplace suffering. This gap is both at the individual level with people not connecting with and practicing self-leadership, and at the organizational level where people occupying leadership roles are not well equipped for the role.

Factors Contributing to the Leadership Gap

Lisa offers a range of solutions to address a number of factors that are contributing to the leadership gap:

  • As a high performer, you are really good at what you do. Senior management may decide to promote you into formal leadership roles of increasing responsibility. All this, without providing you with the support you need to grow your leadership abilities. You are left on your own to sink or swim and figure out how on your own.
  • You are instructed to “go forth and inspire and engage,” without the recipe on how to do that. Further, you soon realize that it is not always easy to connect with employees, colleagues, and management. On top of this, you are now accountable for creating an inclusive work environment. The result is that you are left to struggle and may not be able to build and foster the relationships necessary for you to succeed.
  • Even worse, you may be advised to “Play the Game” and to “Be mean” to get ahead in the organization. When people are appointed to leadership roles based on these alarming false beliefs, it leads to toxic work environments.  Often, those with true leadership talent may even drop out of the race because they don’t want to go against their values in exchange for a promotion.
  • Furthermore, as a ‘go to’ person, you may have a very strong work ethic and not know how to set healthy boundaries. This puts you and your team at risk for burnout.
  • If you are a high performer, you’ve worked hard to develop your talent and gain experience, and deserve to get ahead based on your own merit without having play games or to ‘become mean.’
The good news is that Lisa can help you to advance your career while you stay true to you. She can help you leverage your strengths, boost your confidence and your brand, and grow your leadership competencies so that you can transform into a great people leader.

I highly recommend Lisa Anna Palmer. I’m a Public Servant in a management position and Lisa was my Leadership Coach in 2018. I had interviewed three coaches from our ‘approved supplier list’ and by far, Lisa’s coaching program is the one that not only met but exceeded my expectations. Her program and coaching services not only helped me focus on a number of leadership/strategic thinking areas that I wanted to grow but also helped me tap into my passions and become a better leader. Highly recommend!
