Leadership and Development Tips
from Ormond Coaching and Training

Plan for your future today or tomorrow will pass you by

Welcome to this web site on leadership and development tips for personal and professional development. I hope that you will find some useful leadership and development tips that will benefit you in your current and future roles.

Over the years that I have worked in the area of leadership and personal development I have observed and come across many situations that have benefited from excellent leadership and many that have stumbled due to poor leadership; I have observed challenges that have been managed due to strong people skills and situations that have been created and suffered due to poor people skills; I have become aware of opportunities that can be moved forward and goals met by the development and enhancement of a range of skills and competencies: Presentation Skills; Communicating assertively, confidently and persuasively; Self-management; Time management and a range of other leadership skills.

Everyone can develop their skills, competencies and confidence in the above areas. You need to want to, believe in yourself and be open to the learning process.

By increasing self-awareness, increasing our understanding of people, recognising the key skills of leaders, interpersonal communication, team-working and more and developing these skills we can all raise our performance and that of others. I know from working in this area that this can be challenging. However, it is not impossible. Therefore, I decided to create this web site on leadership and development tips and compile information for personal and professional development. I'd like it to be a reference home for people like you covering a range of leadership and personal development tips. I hope that by using the information in this web site it will give you some tools and approaches to improving and developing your skills and competencies and hence further raising your performance and that of others - to release your potential.

Sometimes people are thrown into the deep end. They are expected to be able to: Manage people, lead people, manage interactions and display appropriate skills without being given guidelines, training, coaching or support in doing this effectively. Many people learn from their manager or other people and model the behaviours of these people. However, are they modelling good behaviours or picking up poor skills and examples. You will know the answer to this by observing people around you and how effective they are, how they manage working relationships, how they manage conflict, how well they motivate people. Use the information in this site to help your development.

I look forward to working with your either through this web site or personally. Enjoy and the best of luck. Dymphna Ormond
