I started doing call center onboarding training back in early 2000 and quickly discovered that my colleagues who enthusiastically joined the company became disengaged within a few months; this caused their performance to decline rapidly and leave the company. In fact, 1/3 of the department employees left within one year of joining the company.
Noticing this disturbing trend, I started emphasizing to management the importance of high level of engagement to the department efficiency and to the overall company’s bottom-line. I quickly started training department managers on how to become more approachable and encourage higher employee engagement.
Our turnover rates started dropping dramatically, employees started making more improvement suggestions and surveys showed us moving to 3rd place in the industry for customer experience (from 10th place in the previous year, which is dead last in the industry).
This lead me to the belief that a positive well-trained leader can create an optimal work environment and drive company growth exponentially, while an ill-equipped leader will simply drive good employees away and potentially amplify costs of ongoing recruitment and training.
This set me on a path to focus my training efforts on helping manager’s and business leaders to develop and practice essential competencies needed to be a good leader. I started doing workshops, online training and writing about it in blogs posts and books on the topic and started realizing that certain key elements were absolutely essential to developing highly engaged workforce. I formalized my years of corporate training experience into an employee engagement training model called “E.D.G.E.”
Your Leadership Edge will introduce you to this model to help you assess and develop the key leadership competencies you need to drive efficiency and effectiveness in your organisation.
'Your Leadership EDGE' training program will help you to develop the core competencies needed to become an exceptional leader to enable you to engage and develop your employees so that you can drive massive growth to your organization.
The book is not about making you aware of leadership competencies; awareness is only the first step to mastering anything. This is exactly what most books and programs on leadership do; and that’s why they fail.
In fact, we have had no noticeable improvement in employee attitude over the past decade. Surveys in 2000 and 2012 suggests that there has been no major shift in employee engagement attitude, 70% of all employees continue to be disengaged from their employer interest. In fact, 30% of employee are actively disengaged, that is, they intentionally work against the company’s overall core objectives.
How much more productive would your company be if you could reduce the number of disengaged employees? What would that do to the overall company morale?
The source of the problem is not employees. Numerous exit interview studies have found that employees don’t leave companies, they leave their managers. Yet, most companies focus on carrot and stick approach to effect employee behaviour and engagement levels.
Logically, if 70% of employees are disengaged in the workforce and most report leaving as a result of their experience with their managers - isn’t it time that we look at what the manager’s could do differently to improve employee disengagement situation?
So, is it the manager’s fault? No. Most manager’s became managers because they were good employees and were rewarded with a promotion. But, once promoted, very few organizations train their manager’s to manage properly. These managers rely on their past experience as employees themselves to manage their subordinates without any leadership training.
So, is the answer leadership training. Yes - in part. I firmly believe that training is rarely the silver bullet, however, a solid foundation is a prerequisite to leadership mastery. ‘Your Leadership EDGE’ will give you the foundation necessary to be an effective leader.
Using the step-by-step program outlined in each of the chapters in this book you will not only become more aware of the core leadership competencies; you will acquire the necessary leadership skills foundation that will enable you to develop and support a highly engaged and productive workforce.

As a leader, you may be faced with many hard questions. A successful leader knows how to interpret those questions and transform them into solutions.
This book will serve as your leadership mentor and will enable you to identify and maximize your core leadership qualities. Doing so will support you in developing a highly engaged and productive staff.
Team members rely on their leaders to guide them through their daily tasks. An effective leader will not only guide staff, but will stimulate them to reach their full potential. Identifying exactly what kind of leader you are is the first task you must complete to meet the challenges of today's workforce.
As we continue, we will begin discussing and dissecting leadership styles and determine what it takes to parlay your style into proven strategies for success. We will look at the qualities of a good leader and determine whether or not those are qualities you possess and/or help you to develop those qualities and teach you how to use that skill set to take control of a team and effectively use their strengths and abilities to their maximum potential – thus, garnering a much more productive, happy, self-confident workforce that meets and/or beats their goals and is motivated to strive for success and expand their scope to meet the growing needs of your company.
We will help you to determine your competency gaps and will create a plan of action to eliminate that separation and give you the tools you need to continue to thrive in your demanding position. Like all savvy professionals, a leader is never done developing. A strong effective leader continues to grow and adapt to meet the needs of clients and staff. They will not rest on their laurels waiting for the market to revert back to their comfort levels, but will seek out more information and begin to utilize more effective strategies and will develop their own skills in order to provide credible leadership to those whom depend on them for guidance. These ever-changing skills will complement the overall growth of their team and will enhance the abilities of the team as a whole.
Once you've mastered the necessary skills, they will enable you to produce results and increase the potential of your team members. The team is anxiously waiting for you to lead them using your perfected leadership skill set.
Core competencies are crucial for anyone in a leadership/management position. Knowing what these competencies are is the first step, but understanding and putting those competencies to use is what sets you apart from other leaders. Possessing these competencies places you well ahead of your competition and solidifies you into a league of your own by increasing your credibility, your trustworthiness, and increasing your self-confidence allowing your team to benefit from your wealth of knowledge.
The natural question to ask here is 'What are core competencies?' The answer is not as complex as one might think. Here, we will provide an overview of those competencies and you may be surprised by some of them. You may even believe you have them. That's a start. In the next few chapters, we will expand on those competencies and put them to use for you.
Am I, as a leader, demonstrating integrity? Am I visible and easily accessible to staff? Do I hold myself accountable? In my role as leader, do I model positive behavior? Is my behavior consistent? Am I an effective decision maker? Am I influential in a positive way? Do I mentor and help to develop my employees? Do I encourage creativity and participation?
Determining what your leadership style is will lead you in the right direction to gaining your leadership EDGE. What you will find as we progress is not just identifying and defining what the core competencies are, but developing those core competencies in yourself. This isn't a manual that will simply tell you how to expand your knowledge. This book will show you step by step how to take what you know or attain those aspects you didn't possess and to expand upon them and implement them into your daily life.
On the following pages, we will begin to explore and identify your leadership style. When we have a clearer picture of where to begin we will know which path to follow to get you into optimum performance shape.
