People won’t use their initiative if they don’t feel trusted – simple as that! If a leader is too controlling, perfectionistic, authoritative or autocratic, team members become dependent for fear of the consequences of making a mistake or not meeting the leader’s expectations. If you catch yourself complaining about your teams initiative, first check if…
Have you ever found your thoughts being consumed by one particular team member? They have a track record of delivering for the business, in fact, they’re loved and respected by customers and others outside your team. But to the team, they’re toxic. People in your team have already left, and there are others on their…
Have you found yourself asking these questions? “Why don’t my team take more initiative?” “Why don’t they make decisions?” “Why do they constantly have to check in with me?” A frustration we keep hearing in our facilitation and guidance sessions from leaders is they’re continually having to get involved in micro tasks because their teams…
We all know that we need to get better at having the difficult conversations and learn to deliver honest feedback in the moment. While we wholeheartedly agree with this line of thinking and, to be honest, that we all need to ‘toughen up’ – if you haven’t developed Professional Intimacy (PI) within your team you’re wasting your time.
Leadership is a huge responsibility, so no doubt it has been on your mind. One common theme we’ve heard from our Members lately is that they’re simply too busy to lead effectively. Does it resonate?
"I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. The sessions were candid and direct, and afforded the opportunity to be self-reflective. Tactician’s style challenges you in a positive and constructive manner."
I really enjoyed the session and felt empowered today to test a few techniques in my team meeting.

"The difference in the way I approached my work after a handful of sessions with my Tactician is a credit to his skills and insight."

"The Gutsy Pitching program was fantastic. The theory was helpful to reframe how I thought about pitching, and the practice sessions were fantastic at helping me to refine the art of pitching. The masterclass helped me to notice ways to improve all the small elements from the way I spoke to my presence in the room."
Tactician's Leadership & Culture program is one of the most interesting training programs I have ever been through. It has given me tools to become more effective in every area of life whilst reducing stress and improving relationships across the board. I would recommend it to any company that understands the value of good culture in an organisation!"
"I would highly recommend the Gutsy Culture program, it takes all the fluff and bubble out of "culture". As a team we've got a much tighter grip on what a great team culture really looks like and are on the right track now to implementing some actionable steps. I've personally gained a lot out of the program; the direct feedback received from the surveys and the A-grade coaching has really helped me. I've also seen our team grow a lot under this program, everyone is pulling towards a common goal and taking on more leadership responsibilities. An accurate measure for me if a coaching program is worth it, is how the team responds, and the response has been fantastic! Thanks again."
"I am always one to be a little nervous and hesitant from that coming into situations and workshops where I have to open up and expose myself. Even if was still a little shaken from pushing myself, I felt so much better off for facing that fear and a lot more confident in myself, not just pitching."

"Rod’s mastery of the art of presenting was evident both in the delivery of the workshop and tactful tutelage of participants."
"I found the Gutsy Presenting program both challenging in terms of looking within and how I communicate (the video doesn’t lie) and rewarding in terms of my learnings."

"I just wanted to share how much of an impact the program had on me. It really was probably the most impressionable professional development course I have done, and I have your techniques constantly on my mind."
"I had the pleasure of engaging in a coaching relationship over the past 12 months and cannot speak highly enough of the experience. The sessions were candid and direct whilst at the same time afforded the opportunity to be self-reflective, my Tactician’s style challenges you in a positive and constructive manner."
