In the last decade the workplace has becoming increasingly virtual. The focus has been on empowering stakeholders, where effectiveness is gained in problem solving, negotiating and team work. But today’s workplaces are facing unprecedented challenges and often employees in managerial roles don’t have the leadership skills required to succeed.
According to Business Insider, Australian employees are lacking the fundamental skills required of good leaders. Leadership roles today are complex, requiring innovation and collaboration rather than authority. The lack of training also leaves employees feeling frustrated as they are not given the opportunity to advance. Interestingly, LinkedIn conducted a survey concluding that the “majority of employees resign due to lack of opportunity for career advancement.” This is relatively unsurprising, given a 2014 study by Gallup deduced only 31% of U.S. employees were engaged at work.
There is definitive need in Australia for effective training in both corporate and SME organisations. A company that has been trailblazing in this space is Leadership Management Australia (LMA), a training and development organisation that delivers a process that not only provides skill and competency development but changes the attitudes and behaviours of the participant.
LMA’s point of difference is that information received through traditional training methods is quickly forgotten. However, if you can actually change and improve the way people think, work, interact and live, their value to your organisation will continue to grow indefinitely.
According to Bob McCarthy, National Sales and Marketing Manager for LMA, the business has developed the professionalism and leadership standards of employees for over forty-five years. “In short, LMA helps people apply information so that new attitudes and behaviours are formed. These changes in attitude and behaviour have a measurable impact on the bottom line of an organisation,” McCarthy says.
Bob McCarthy instantly sees the results of their training: “We stand behind our business model because our process works to deliver these results. We are at the point where we can guarantee results and therefore our clients’ success. This is because we agree upon achievable goals for each participant beforehand and then help each participant to develop the skills , attitudes and behaviours necessary to achieve these goals.”
What LMA offers is also not based on a whim, the program offers measurable benchmarks. Results can be verified by clients such as Phil Laing, Managing Director for Foot Locker Asia Pacific, who breaks down the benefits of the LMA program to “savings, improvements and efficiencies equivalent to $50,000 per participant – an average ROI of 16:1”
LMA’s client portfolio is very impressive, Unilever, Foot Locker, Bank West, AAMI, Boeing, Citicorp Boral Jaico, a number of councils and Government departments and thousands of small to Medium Enterprises.
The growth in the potential in the industry is untapped and LMA is looking for licensees who want skin in the game, who have an appetite for building a professional business.
“To be successful you need to have a few worry lines and bit of grey” says Bob McCarthy with a wry smile. LMA is looking for people that can hold a business conversation with senior people, like CEO’s, Heads of Recruitment, Business Owners, and Managing Directors. A solid network would be handy but what is non negotiable is the ability to go out, schedule client meetings and have the conversations. The actual training is provided by LMA’s team of coaches, so the role of the licensee after the sale, is to grow a strong business based upon long-term professional relationships- relationships that generate ongoing repeat sales.”
LMA’s licensees use their many years of corporate experience, as well as thorough training provided by Leadership Management Australia to approach businesses and demonstrate the value of LMA businesses.
Becoming a Licensee for Leadership Management Australia can be a life changing opportunity. Graeme and Suzanne Wilson, successful Licensees for LMA claimed they were able to balance a growing business while managing their family. The Wilson’s stated they wanted a “business that will be sustainable for us in the long term”. Their life has never been better.
The lifestyle factor is definitely an advantage but so is the earning capability. Bob McCarthy also refers to a number of licensees who are running offices and teams of employees and achieving significant financial success.
