Starts July 23, 2020

Price: $430 for 8 interactive sessions

Strategic Leadership for Men

Led by Jenn Lofgren (Master Certified Coach, Forbes Coaches Council, Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women, Dare to LeadTM Certified Facilitator, CPHR & SHRM-SCP)

The role as a leader can be a challenging and isolating journey for everyone and especially for men. Today, there are few venues or communities for men to explore their leadership challenges and development with other men. For many men, this leads to feelings of loneliness, overwhelm, doubt, anxiety and much more.

As leaders, the first step to creating results through others is to develop yourself first. I believe the journey of leadership development requires courage, connection and perspective with a safe group of peers.

This accelerator group will create a support space with other men in leadership to connect with your peers and to learn key strategies to expand your strategic leadership. You will create weekly action plans to put your learning into practice and strengthen your authentic leadership.

NOTE: This Accelerator Group is for men only, and recommended for mid-level leaders holding titles like: Manager, Director and VP

You will LEARN:

  • Understand how your reactive tendencies create limited leadership success
  • Explore the role risk, fear and toxic expectations play in triggering your reactive
  • Learn the three reactive tendencies and which one you default to the most
  • How to develop by leveraging tendencies and which one you default to most
  • How to develop by leveraging your strengths, not your weaknesses
  • The role of vulnerability and mindset in developing strategic leadership
  • Strategies to respond vs react in challenge and crisis

You will ACHIEVE:

  • Clarity on your path to leadership effectiveness remaining true to who you are
  • A two-page leadership development plan to advance your leadership over 6-12 months
  • Understanding of the gifts of your leadership style and how to adapt in leading others
  • Relationships and community with other men in leadership
  • Skills to expand your leadership community with other me

We are all facing Austerity…and here’s how procurement can help

A friend of mine recently asked me to explain austerity measures to him

 

So I said it’s like this…you know how you told your wife you needed a new set of clubs because that’s what was missing from your golf game

 

And she said fine, but then you should also let me know which of your three daily meals you’re going to give up 

 

Because we can afford to have you running around on a golf course pretending to know what you’re doing AND eat like a king at home

 

Well, that’s austerity. Now the term’s typically used in reference to governments that are finding it hard to borrow money or pay back loans

 

So they introduce austerity measures like increased taxes and spending cuts which then impacts a households disposable income…breakfast or golf?

 

But austerity doesn’t just impact the public sector or limits itself to the Federal government 

 

Like when corporations find they have to pay more taxes, they try to counter-balance that with either more revenue or less spending

 

But it’s always easier (and faster) to cut costs then it is to increase sales

 

And this is where our jobs as procurement and supply chain professionals becomes so critical

 

Never has it been more important to make that shift from tactical purchasing to real strategic sourcing and vendor management

 

Before the pandemic, that shift would have occurred in one of two ways

 

Either the organization would mandate a greater focus on strategic, cost savings activities while maintaining business as usual on the tactical purchasing side

 

Or they’d bring in outside help for the strategic stuff while their existing team focused on tactical purchasing

 

But we’re in a post-pandemic world and most organizations I’ve spoken with don’t have the appetite to spend money in order to save money

 

They need cost savings now, not 6 months from now or a year from now…so they need the people who are already there to find a way to do more with less

 

And that could be a tough ask for procurement departments that were already understaffed and struggling to just keep up with the day to day stuff

 

Unfortunately, I don’t have a magic bullet to fix that problem. But I do have a suggestion, based on my experience and what’s worked for me over the years

 

I suggest taking a look at your procurement process to see where you can create some efficiencies

 

Because those efficiencies will give your team the extra time they need to focus more on cost savings activities

 

And you don’t need some big shot consultant, or even a little shot like myself, to review your process for you or point out the inefficiencies

 

You can do it yourself, and you could probably do it in one day. The harder part will be in convincing your people to give up some of the administrative tasks they spend time on every day

 

The reality is that, as much as procurement people complain about not having enough time to get everything done, they love their SharePoint folders and Excel spreadsheets

 

It’s mindless busywork but it gives the appearance of a really complicated, IQ-intensive task

 

Have you ever walked by someone in procurement who’s staring intensely at a massive spreadsheet and thought “man, I don’t wanna be that guy”

 

When I see that I think “man, there goes a couple of thousand dollars in salary down the drain”

 

If you’re a procurement person managing your work on a spreadsheet…you’re doing it wrong

 

And you’re wasting time that could be used to focus on more strategic, cost saving activities

 

If you don’t believe me, check out some of the testimonials on our website …or feel free to reach out to me directly for a chat

Contract Management … made easy!

I’ve been in the procurement profession for almost 25 years, and I used the experience to develop a contract management platform called OneView… And for the past few years, our solution’s been helping organizations by eliminating the need for their procurement teams to do any data entry when uploading a contract or creating summaries, and their employees spend seconds instead of hours finding contracts and tracking renewals.

But the world’s changed drastically in the past few months, making it difficult for organizations to spend money or make long-term commitments.

So to ease the burden on organizations that have been impacted by the pandemic, we just launched new Lite, Pro and Plus versions of OneView starting at USD $39/user per month.  Valid from April 1, 2020 to June 30th 2020.

If you believe OneView can benefit to your organization, as it’s doing for others, I invite you to check out our profile, visit our new website and sign up for a Free 7-day trial

You can be set up and running on a fully functional contract management platform within a few hours… But the time you’ll save and the insights you’ll gain from your contracts… Will give you exponentially more in cost savings…

All the best and stay safe, Mohammed
