Welcome to LeadershipTraction®

How do they do it?

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

They always seem to generate just the right amount of momentum, collaboration, and camaraderie when running an important program, project, or initiative.

And whether working as a team leader, team member, or direct contributor, they routinely get done whatever needs to be done – on time, within budget, to scope, and to the satisfaction of those most relying on them.

How DO they do it?!

Lead Like a Leader Who Was Born To!

Hi, there. Barry Zweibel, here.

I help leaders attend to their most pressing – and challenging – business issues with greater clarity, confidence, traction, and ease. Like leaders who were born to!

The kind of issues that typically need more attention than they’ve been getting.

The kind of issues that just don’t ‘get done’ by themselves.

The kind of issues that can be predictively derailed by leaders lacking certain skills that are easily identified by just looking at:

  • The effectiveness with which leaders manage the tasks assigned to them and the people they’re responsible for working with, and through – and how that affects:
    • Project Management
    • Accountability
    • Directional Leadership (managing up, down, across, and within)
    • Collaboration
    • Executive Intelligence
  • How difficult and important conversations are being handled – and the impact that has on:
    • Giving and receiving performance feedback
    • Preparing for big meetings
    • Evaluating key metrics
    • Conflict management
    • Communications and messaging
  • Who is, and isn’t, thinking, planning, or communicating strategically enough – and how that dilutes:
    • Thought Leadership
    • Time Management
    • Priority Management
    • Inspiring others to demonstrate Greater Urgency, Thoroughness, and Consistency in what they do
  • How shifts in priorities and sudden changes in plans are handled – and their impact on:
    • Flexibility
    • Availability
    • Teamwork
    • Intelligent Conversation
    • Working through Ambiguity
    • Mood Management
  • The extent to which leaders, and others, are becoming increasingly stress-resistant, hardy, and resilient – and how it affects:
    • Building Organizational Capacity
    • Leveraging Employee Strengths and Mitigating their Weaknesses
    • Locus of Control
    • Work/Life Balance

What Makes Barry Zweibel So Uniquely Qualified?

I think my experience with mission-critical operations, crisis management, conflict resolution, seemingly impossible deadlines, and other such pressure-packed situations – coupled with my coaching, mentoring, and adult learning expertise – provides a context and credibility that accelerates change.

I also think my knowing 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 leaders – makes engaging leaders in relevant and resonant conversations all the more possible.

So with a style that’s been described as relaxed, engaging, and conversational, I’m able to help people reach surprisingly deep and meaningful insights about their biggest challenges – and themselves, as human beings – surprisingly quickly, and in surprisingly stress-free ways.

Intentional conversations that help people open up and talk candidly about the things they just don’t feeling comfortable talking about with just anyone. So, together, we can constructively brainstorm, simplify, and get back on the path of true leadership traction.

“Yes, It’s Time, and YES, You’re Ready!”

Whether I’m coaching, mentoring, consulting, training, or leveraging my functional experience as a project manager, business executive, author, or adjunct instructor, the key has always been my ability to help others discover, and implement, timely and workable solutions – ones that not only align with their particular roles and responsibilities, but fit their individual personality and preferences. After all, the even the best plans are worthless if they’re only talked about!

Considering all that’s in play, it really IS time to shift from the ‘seemingly impossible’ to the ‘imminently doable’, isn’t it? And you really ARE ready!
