How do they do it?

Some leaders never seem to struggle when faced with even the most frustrating or challenging assignments.

When working with others, they always seem to be able to create just the right amount of urgency – without derailing anyone’s motivation, responsiveness, or work quality.

And whether working as a team lead, team member, or direct contributor, they’re seemingly always able to get done whatever needs to get done – on time, within budget, to scope, and to the satisfaction of those relying on them.

How DO they do it?!

Learn to Lead Like a Leader Who Was Born To!

Hi, there. Barry Zweibel, here. Welcome to LeadershipTraction®.

I help leaders tackle even their most challenging leadership responsibilities with greater confidence, capability impact, and initiative – just like leaders who were born to!

  • The kind of leadership responsibilities that typically need more attention than they typically get.
  • The kind of leadership responsibilities that never seem to ‘get done’ by themselves.
  • The kind of leadership responsibilities that, if insufficiently managed, can all-too-easily derail key business initiatives.

When leaders lack certain leadership, and self-awareness skills, it results in some fairly obvious gaps and implications. Take a look in the mirror and consider:

  • The effectiveness with which you manage the tasks assigned to you, the people you’re responsible for working with, and through – and how that affects:
    • Project and Program Management
    • Accountability Discussions
    • Effectively Managing Up, Down, and Across the Organization
    • Collaboration
    • Executive Intelligence
  • Your approach to difficult and important conversations – and how that impacts:
    • Giving and Receiving Performance Feedback
    • Preparing for Big Meetings
    • Evaluating Key Metrics
    • Managing Conflict
    • Messaging and Communications
  • When you are, and aren’t, thinking, planning, or communicating strategically or transparently enough – and how that shapes:
    • Thought Leadership
    • Time Management
    • Priority Management
    • Inspiring Others to Demonstrate Greater Urgency, Thoroughness, and Consistency in What THEY Do
  • The way others see you react to sudden shifts in priorities and changes in plans – and how that modifies:
    • Flexibility
    • Availability
    • Teamwork
    • Intelligent Conversation
    • Working through Ambiguity
    • Mood Management
  • The extent to which you, and those around you, are becoming more or less resistant to stress and strain – and how that influences:
    • Building Organizational Capacity
    • Leveraging Employee Strengths and Mitigating their Weaknesses
    • Locus of Control
    • Achieving Sufficient Work/Life Balance
    • Business Deliverables

What Makes Barry Zweibel So Uniquely Qualified to Help You Create More Leadership Traction?

Extensive Business Experience My firsthand functional business experiences in managing mission-critical systems, operations, crisis management, conflict resolution, project management, marketing, fiduciary responsibility, customer service, planning, strategic thinking, contract negotiations, and vendor/client relations have all proven particularly relevant in addressing the needs, interests, and challenges facing today’s leaders.

Extensive Leadership Experience Having served as a front-line operative, supervisor, manager, director, vice president, and corporate officer, I have a concrete understanding of what does – and does not – work in working with, and reporting to, middle managers, managers of managers, C-level executives, upper- and lower-committees, and a Board of Directors – and can speak directly to those leadership, political, organizational, and accountability lessons learned.

Extensive Coaching Experience I have been coaching, professionally, since 2000 – and coaching, informally, for many years prior – so I’ve had considerable opportunity to hone my craft. To that end, the International Coach Federation recognizes me as a Master Certified Coach – the gold standard of coach certifications, and a distinction that fewer than 2% of all coaches, worldwide, have achieved.

I also know how fear, uncertainty, doubt, and the mere passing of time, can undermine the best of plans – and even the smartest, kindest, and most capable of people – and am highly practiced in engaging them in some of the most meaningful and personally validating and empowering conversations they’ve ever had:

  • Conversations that help leaders reach surprisingly deep and meaningful insights about their biggest challenges – and themselves – surprisingly quickly, and in surprisingly engaging, and stress-free ways.
  • Conversations that help them open up and talk candidly about the things they just haven’t felt comfortable talking about with just anyone.
  • Conversations that others describe as “intellectually stimulating, emotionally comforting, creative, personalized, and supportive.”
  • Conversations that literally accelerate their growth and development as leaders, business people, and human beings.
  • Conversations that help them open up and talk candidly about the things they just haven’t felt comfortable talking about with just anyone.

But whether I’m coaching, mentoring, consulting, training, or telling stories about my own experiences as a leader, business person, executive, author, adjunct instructor, or just another human being, I have always had an ability to help others discover, and successfully implement, timely and workable solutions that not only align with their particular roles and responsibilities, but naturally fit with their individual personalities, preferences, and proclivities. After all, even the best of ideas aren’t worth much if they’re only just talked about!

❝All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.❞
