1 on 1 Support for Executives
- Are you feeling beside yourself with anxiety or stress?
- Do you feel things are sliding out of your control?
- Are you prone to flying off the handle and feel your anger is getting the better of you?
- Do you feel resentment towards a person or situation?
- Are you in a relationship breakdown?
- Do you have unrealistic pressures on you?
Leadership stress is a common form of executive level stress in the workplace. Extensive research confirms that management style is a critical element to effective leadership. It is proven that people are more productive if managed by a collaborative style rather than an autocratic one. Dominant, authoritative people can be known for getting things done; but they also stamp their personality on an organisation and may inflict stress on their employees.Find out about my Seminars
Fixing Problems in Business
I have extensive experience helping with:
- Businesses mergers
- Businesses owned by members of the same family but who wanted to separate to achieve their own individual potential
- Top teams who weren’t transparent enough with each other so they took feedback as criticism
- Teams that carried poor performers because it was too uncomfortable to sort the issue
Sue has provided an invaluable service to a number of my key executive members who were in need of some help and guidance during periods of very high pressure and stress. Having identified that help was needed, and that I was not best equipped to take it further, I have had no hesitation in recommending Sue to act as the expert and wise counsel. I know that she has provided great value at every level – practical, realistic, and based on a deep understanding of her professional expertise. I trust her completely.
Sue has a very interactive approach from the very start which works well in terms of engagement, energy in the room and interaction with members and each other. The workshop worked very effectively (including plotting our life and work timelines on paper – very powerful and huge value in sharing with each other).
Sue guided us through with constant interaction – a professional and informal approach which members very much appreciated as they left with a huge amount of light bulb learning/realisations and actions including models and a questionnaire to use with their teams.
I first met Sue as a visiting speaker on the Vistage business group circuit and was so impressed with both the relevance of the content she delivered, and her professionalism and effectiveness in delivering this content (on how to best manage stress in the context of busy executive lifestyles) that I sought her out for one-to-one work. Her work is clearly focused and highly perceptive of the needs of her clients, she recognises the value they place on their time, and has a remarkable ability to get straight to the core work that’s needed to best help them progress most effectively. I thoroughly endorse Sue’s work, her expertise in this field is in my experience unsurpassed and is of the very highest calibre, she thoroughly deserves her standing and reputation as one of leading lights in this field.
My first three hour session spent with business performance psychologist Sue Firth convinced me that years spent working with other business psychologists had been a waste of time. Insightful and dynamic, Sue is all about rapidly identifying areas that can be improved and providing practical strategies to enable you to deliver your optimum business performance!
