At the very heart of all business growth sits our people. It is they that make things happen. They deliver on the corporate promise and make the difference we all hope to make in this world. It is also they that fuel the drive and ambition behind Votive Leadership Consultancy.
For over ten years the consultancy has been involved in releasing the potential that lies within the corporate workforce, be they nurses, engineers, top executives, computer programmers or government workers. Our programmes are tailored to each client and are designed to make the individual think, to act and to inspire. They bring teams together; they create alignment, measurably improve employee engagement and ultimately deliver meaningful results.
Our approach is innovative, fresh and fit for the new working environment. We energise (or “Votivate” as one client remarked) and focus on one simple, clearly defined outcome; the release of the potential that lies within.
Effective Followership is a programme element designed to get delegates to consider their own behaviour choices and the subsequent impact these will have on the team.
Our model clearly defines four key behaviour traits: Sheep, Yes, Alien and Effective. No individual is Effective all of the time. Our hard-wired mental maps keep pulling us into “Survival Thinking” and as such potential is lost. The key to Effective Followership is the creation of a ‘local’ environment and climate that will allow individuals to access Effective Follower traits more of the time. This is about the culture a leader creates within their team. But of course for a leader to be effective they have to demonstrate high levels of Effective Follower traits themselves. This can only be done through increased awareness.
Our programme raises awareness, creates ownership and builds on the foundations that will currently exist. Above all our programme produces results.
I have worked closely with the team from Votive Leadership over many years and they have always delivered on brief, highly tailored and effective programmes, be they for the Senior Management Team or our wider employee group. Always interactive. they deliver the most memorable programmes I have ever come across.
The communications programme designed and delivered by Votive has really made a difference to our Broker teams. It is not often that immediately after a programme you get inudated with requests for more from the delegates, but this is exactly what happened.
Votive Leadership have a unique and motivating way of making employees appreciate that they have much more to give not only to their work but to their colleagues and life in general. The fact that I continue to use them in non-English speaking countries speaks for itself.
The team are far more aligned, communicate better and have a clearly defined team focus. Votive were able to highlight our development needs and address them with an innovative approach, disturbing our thinking, but ensuring that any solutions developed are our own and not just from an academic model. In short they met the brief given to them and went beyond.
By understanding our unique culture and problems Votive have had an amazing effect right through our organisation from managers to distributors to resellers and finally to our end users.
The Votive pre-diagnostic approach and implementation ensured our programme was one of the best and most effective ever
