Watch out: What you're not seeing in the office

Watch out: What you're not seeing in the office | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

I've learned the curse of the native eye extends beyond the work of a foreign correspondent. It relates to all of us, in our lives and in our offices, every day. We stop seeing what's odd, unusual or special about our environment. We take for granted how things are done. And we stop questioning the parts of the status quo that would strike any outsider as downright silly.

Snap out of the trance of routine to check out what's really going on around you.

It Takes Two To Tango: The Need To Manage Up | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Only a very few companies might be ready to embrace concepts such as holacracy in a serious and all-encompassing manner and to dance to this new rhythm. And although being around for about 10 years, holacracy still has to demonstrate its effectiveness on a broader and a sustainable manner.

Lead at your best

Lead at your best | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Five simple exercises can help you recognize, and start to shift, the mindsets that limit your potential as a leader. As important as mindsets are, we often skip ahead to actions. We adopt behavior and expect it to stick through force of will. Sadly, it won’t if we haven’t changed the underlying attitudes and beliefs that drove the old behavior in the first place. Making matters worse, our behavior affects other people’s mindsets, which in turn affect their behavior. A leader’s failure to recognize and shift mindsets can stall the change efforts of an entire organization. Indeed, because of the underlying power of a leader’s mindsets to guide an entire organization toward positive change, any effort to become better leaders should start with ourselves, by recognizing the thoughts, feelings, and emotions that drive us.

Why Companies Lose Customers as They Get Bigger

Why Companies Lose Customers as They Get Bigger | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Companies are born, they’re established or formed, they grow and develop, they reach maturity, they begin to decline and age and – if nothing is done to refresh them and align them to the market – they eventually die. This is the nature of people (except we can’t be revived!), of products and of organisations and yet many of the businesses I work with are not aware that a lifecycle misalignment with their customers is one of their biggest reasons for falling sales.

David Hain's insight:

Excellent explanation on what organisations have to overcome to grow. Thanks Rob Peters!

How to receive the rare gift of feedback | SmartBlogs

How to receive the rare gift of feedback | SmartBlogs | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Like all of you, I’ve had experiences where I had unwittingly offended or hurt someone. I have blind spots (these behaviors can cause problems in relationships because we aren’t aware of them). In each case, I sensed something was amiss and was able to address the reaction of the other person by asking for feedback.

I never intend to cause pain or suffering to others, so it’s important for me to hear others’ experience of me. I’ll admit it’s hard to ask for feedback because of my fear of what I’ll hear and how I might react.

That sounds very silly when I write it down. Because I know that feedback is like medicine; it may not taste very good in the moment, but over the long run it will make me a healthier (and better) person and leader.

Little by little, asking for feedback can break down those ego barriers that exist between yourself and others.

David Hain's insight:

Like any gift, how you respond drives what you get next time.

It is easy to say “we are customer focused” and overlook subtle changes in consumer demand, or to justify cost cutting as a rational business maneuver in a tough market environment. But if these measures don’t accomplish your strategic vision or sync with the reality of your customer, there is little hope for leading the market.

Stop Trying to Control People or Make Them Happy

Stop Trying to Control People or Make Them Happy | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Whether you’ve heard of them or not, two gurus from the early 20th century still dominate management thinking and practice — to our detriment.  It has been more than 100 years since Frederick Taylor, an American engineer working in the steel business, published his seminal work on the principles of scientific management.  And it has been more than 80 years ago since Elton Mayo, an Australian-born Harvard academic, produced his pioneering studies on human relations in the workplace.  Yet managers continue to follow Taylor’s “hard” approach — creating new structures, processes, and systems — when they need to address a management challenge.
