Three Things Every Leader Should Do in a Meeting

Three Things Every Leader Should Do in a Meeting | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

Benjamin Franklin famously said, “The only things certain in life are death and taxes.” If Franklin were alive today, he would probably add “meetings” to that list. Meetings are a permanent fixture on all of our schedules, ever present and in many cases unavoidable. Instead of viewing meetings as an expense, think of them as an investment. I find effective leaders view meetings as an opportunity to advance the outcome, while strengthening themselves and the teams they lead.

 

Here are three things I strive to achieve when meeting with teams:

The Benefits Of Mentoring

The Benefits Of Mentoring | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
One of the best investment in your career life is mentoring - either having a mentor, or being a mentor.

Via Gust MEES
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

In my humble opinion:  It is never too late to be a mentor, and you are never too experienced to have a mentor.

 

How wonderful it is to share tools, tips, mistakes, and lessons with someone who has not had the same experiences. 

 

On the flip side, seeking out someone as a mentor who already has the expertise and experiences in an area that you want to strengthen is a great suggestion.  (Why would I want to learn the hard way, when I can learn from someone who has already made the mistakes, and has proven methods, tools, and tips to help accomplish my goals faster.

 

 Anthony Robbins says that Success leaves clues.

Great Leaders Aren’t Afraid to Lose Their Talent

Great Leaders Aren’t Afraid to Lose Their Talent | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

Leaders with an abundance mentality don’t let concerns about losing strong talent drive their leadership development practices. Instead, they provide ample ways for their team members to grow. Even if it ultimately means filling someone else’s talent pipeline, they are secure in the knowledge that taking a long view of leadership development benefits their team and, ultimately, their organization.


Via Bobby Dillard
Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's insight:

Completely agree!!!  These special leaders tap into their talent and consistently grow and develop people and companies.

 

Instead of being upset when their people grow into bigger opportunities...they are proud!

 

I am so fortunate, lucky, and grateful to have learned from so many of these "Great Leaders."  They believed in me until I believed in myself.

ozziegontang's curator insight, July 20, 2013 8:16 AM

We are interdependent.  We are herd/pack animals euphemistically calling ourselves social animals. It is with the help of others tht we reach our greatness.  That Greatness Zone lays in what Suzanne Livingston calls: My unique contribution. For me that is my passion around servant-leadership and building community.  Cindy shares well how the work as a fellow Vistage/TEC Chair has allowed me to fulfill my passion for the past 27 years.


Cindy talks about being good at what she did. She also mentions "I found I became bored easily"  When I can do something well and it becomes  habit, I can coast.  And you know what they say about coasting.  When you're coasting you're going downhill.


The challenge that Lee Thayer throws down is: How will I be better tomorrow that I was today in living my life and performing better than I was today personally and professionally?


Cindy has found her unique contribution that challenges her daily to be better than yesterday.


Remember, I cannot motivate another person. Motivation comes from within.


Motivation:  the state or condition of being motivated.

Motivate:     Providing motive.

Motive:        Goals or objectives of one's actions.Random House Dictionary


You may be able to inspire me, however it is up to me to achieve the "goals or objectives my one's actions."

Creating a high performing team is built on trust.  Each member knows that teammembers will come through for eachother. 

 

When the team comes together and establishes a one-team, one-vision, one-goal philosophy, they are all headed in the same direction.  Leaders are intentional in putting the collective goals of the team ahead of inidivual and department goals.

When you are a boss, I think that you use your title to get the job done.  You point, and when others ask why...the boss responds, "Because I said so."  Employees follow their bosses, because they have to. 

 

Leaders don't need to use their titles to get the job done.  They have built their relationships, and are interested in their people not just as employees.  Here, employees follow their leaders not because they have to, however, because they want to. (Listen)

Sinek does it again - from the "golden circle" of "why" to the "circle of safety" for making an extraordinary organziation that can execute your why.

 

The circle of safety is about engagement, empowerment, and protection of your team. Do you just protect the senior team in your organziation or do all of your people feel safe and able to make decisions?

(From the article): Be genuine and direct. Be the genuine you. Aspire to be the best version of you, not someone or something you’re not. Don’t over-think or over-process what you know you need to say. Don’t oversell and don’t BS. Also you can be genuine and direct without being a jerk about it. You can be hard on people without insulting them. When it comes to conflict or debate, stick to business; don’t make it personal.
