🔍🔍🔍 This was just one of the many questions and topics I've been working with Leaders on over the past three days in the Peak District.
👏👏👏 𝑻𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒌 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒕𝒐 𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒃𝒓𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒊𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒅𝒆𝒓𝒔 that have joined us this week and for being so 𝒆𝒏𝒈𝒂𝒈𝒆𝒅, 𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒉𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒂𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒄 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒐 𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒓𝒏 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒈𝒓𝒐𝒘.
Highlights for me were:
✨✨✨ 𝑺𝒕𝒂𝒓𝒕 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 "𝑾𝒉𝒚" 𝒕𝒐 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒏𝒆𝒄𝒕: The concept of the golden circle (why, what, how) is powerful and always resonates with Leaders and reminds them of the importance of using Why to connect with peoples' emotions and heart.
🌞🌞🌞 𝑼𝒏𝒅𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒕𝒂𝒏𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒅𝒓𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒔 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒕𝒆𝒂𝒎'𝒔 𝒎𝒐𝒕𝒊𝒗𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝒊𝒔 𝒄𝒓𝒊𝒕𝒊𝒄𝒂𝒍. Are they driven by 𝑷𝒖𝒓𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒆, 𝑴𝒂𝒔𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒚 𝒐𝒓 𝑨𝒖𝒕𝒐𝒏𝒐𝒎𝒚 (when you take money out of the equation)?
🎯🎯🎯 𝑯𝒊𝒈𝒉 𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒆𝒂𝒎𝒔 𝒂𝒓𝒆 "𝒆𝒏𝒈𝒂𝒈𝒆𝒅". This is because often the values and goals of the individuals and organisation closely align, which creates higher levels of satisfaction & contribution.
⚡⚡⚡𝒀𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒎𝒐𝒐𝒅 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒆𝒏𝒆𝒓𝒈𝒚 𝒂𝒇𝒇𝒆𝒄𝒕𝒔 𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒚𝒐𝒏𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒆𝒏𝒈𝒂𝒈𝒆 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉. Recognising this and positively shifting it can have amazing effects on how people engage with you and the outcomes.
👉👉👉 𝑳𝒆𝒂𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒄𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒈𝒆 𝒄𝒂𝒏 𝒃𝒆 𝒕𝒐𝒖𝒈𝒉 𝒃𝒆𝒄𝒂𝒖𝒔𝒆 𝒑𝒆𝒐𝒑𝒍𝒆 𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒄𝒕 𝒅𝒊𝒇𝒇𝒆𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒍𝒚. By identifying where your team members and stakeholders are on the 'change curve', what they are feeling and their motivators are, you can lead change more effectively.
🧬🧫🔬 𝑰𝒏𝒏𝒐𝒗𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝒊𝒔 𝒄𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒓𝒂𝒍 𝒕𝒐 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒈𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒔. Leaders can use techniques and tools to develop new ideas and plans by getting their teams to be "Dreamers", "Realists", and "Critics", and have some fun whilst they do it.
🌎🌍🌏𝑩𝒆𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒂𝒄𝒄𝒐𝒖𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒐𝒘𝒏 𝒈𝒓𝒐𝒘𝒕𝒉 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒂𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔 𝒅𝒓𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒔 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒈𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒔. It's always amazing to see leaders take on board new insights and want to take positive action. 𝑼𝒔𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒄𝒐𝒂𝒄𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒕𝒐 𝒇𝒂𝒄𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒕𝒂𝒕𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒑𝒓𝒐𝒄𝒆𝒔𝒔 𝒄𝒂𝒏 𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒍𝒚 𝒓𝒆𝒊𝒏𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒄𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒔𝒆 𝒊𝒏𝒕𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔.
