Professional Services Organisations
If you operate in a professional environment – if your fee earners and main operators are qualified professionals with letters after their name – you will recognise that you are in a different environment to many other businesses and organisations. Individual performance is judged on how proficient each team member is at delivering their professional service. However when it comes to growing the practice or firm, improving morale, introducing new initiatives and services, you can encounter sometimes enormous resistance. How can that be, when you have such well-educated and well-paid people in your team ?
One of the keys to higher performance lies in developing leadership throughout your organisation – not just at the top. It means ensuring that the relevant skills and knowledge are in the business, and are being practiced. It means being absolutely clear about the Direction and the Goals of the organisation, and inspiring and motivating your team members to be part of that vision. What you need is to be taught how to be great leaders and effective managers – not just to have the job title.
