Neil Fogarty has been a director within SME and PLC environments since 1996 and has been building leadership qualities through Eskil for over 10 years.
He is a visiting lecturer in leadership with ESLSCA Business School, a Principal Practitioner Member of the Association of Business Psychology, a member of the Organisational Behaviour Management Network as well as a Master Practitioner in assessing Emotional Capability.
At all points, his work in leadership development informs and benefits from his work on four continents.
Eskil’s Integrated Psychology of Leadership model places the psychology of the executive at the heart of learning & development.
Leadership Development packages
There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to leadership and team development – you have issues and conditions that make you unique and so it is important to develop a similarly bespoke solution.
A standard engagement includes:
- Scoping session – meeting with key stakeholders to determine the scope and anticipated outcomes / outputs
- Emotional Intelligence report – a 360-degree assessment with an individual report as well as the circular view
- Personalised portfolio including skills notes, exercises, goals, achievements and feedback
- Six monthly 1:1 sessions with a focus on critical friendship as a way to challenge and support the executive
- Telephone / Skype support
Emotional Intelligence is not ‘personality’ – whilst there is merit in the use of NEO, 16PF, MBTI, and Big Five, this does not mean that EI has been assessed.
To this end, business psychology is becoming increasingly used in a coaching and mentoring context and there are many case studies to explain the ROI (for example, Emotional Intelligence is estimated to account for 27-45% of job success).
Applied Leadership Development
One of the common failings of leadership development is that it is not aligned to corporate strategy and / or not actually deployed back in the workplace.
All of the engagement models outlined below are founded on EI-driven executive coaching which supports your work in addressing organisational challenges:
- Higher sales and profits;
- Benchmark and increase performance;
- Improved customer satisfaction;
- Improved recruitment process;
- Retain high performers during the current war for talent;
- Drive greater ROI on training spend;
- Build aligned and motivated teams – driving efficiency and efficacy;
- Create strong risk management;
- Reduce resistance to change;
- Help people to handle the stress;
- Enable better M&A integration; and
- Transform cultures
Neil has experience of executive coaching, board facilitation, team facilitation, team cohesion and more – and this is reflected in the models available to you.
- Individual: operating as a critical friend, working on a 1:1 basis with specific outcomes / outputs;
- Boardroom: provision of facilitation as well as critical friendship to the board and individual directors;
- Team: building team cohesion through a blend of team and individual coaching;
- Shadowing: conducting a ‘Day In the Life Of’ observation of teams and individuals as they undertake meetings and conduct general management and leadership activities;
- Organisational Health: working with key players in the addressing of a variety of issues including performance, conflict, communications and change; and
- Workshops: ranging from half a day through to a week as various topics are explored to differing levels. Training is a key element but is only part of the wider picture (70 : 20 : 10). Workshops include workplace emotional intelligence, moving into management, progressing into leadership, corporate social responsibility, culture change, corporate strategy, etc.
Whether you are operating within the public or the private sector, we are all being pushed to do more with less: more customers; greater customer satisfaction; increased market share; growing sales pipelines and revenue; better surplus / profits.
