Frontline leaders are the key to success
I’m Karen Schmidt from Let’s Grow! and I’m in the business of helping organisations to thrive by showing them how to grow groups of frontline managers into teams of frontline leaders.
I want to start a grass roots change to the way we develop frontline leaders.
When I joined the workforce I was saddened to see many potentially great leaders crushed by their earlier experiences with the result that organisations struggled to get people to take on frontline leadership roles.
Frontline leaders are vital to the success of any organisation.
They are the people who get their hands dirty, working with frontline staff and customers.
Typically they make up 50% to 60% of an organisation’s leaders, directly supervising up to 80% of the workforce.
They deserve more attention and support to help them thrive in their roles!
My mission is to help turn our organisations from industrial age factories into conceptual age ecosystems.
To do this we need to stop building an army of frontline managers and start nurturing a community of frontline leaders that can work in harmony with the nature of their teams.
I want to create a tribe of workplace gardeners, each with a plant on their desk symbolising their belief in my Workplace Gardening Philosophy.
That’s why I have designed a range of services that create real, lasting results:
- Comprehensive Budding Leaders development program
- Frontline leader development strategic planning
- Frontline leadership team growing sessions
- Frontline leaders learning cafe
- Leadership coaching for individuals
