Should your company and industry find itself in a similar position as Ford and the U.S. auto industry, how would your organization weather the storm? What would sustain you and support both individuals and the company as a whole to succeed even in the toughest of business environments?

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, November 22, 2013 10:35 AM

 

[KEY POINTS]

 

Ford's components of success

 

- One Company / One Team

We’re all in this together, working towards the same goal.

 

- Behaviors matter in everyone

The same fundamental behaviors that drive our success are required from all Ford employees.

 

- Success is easier when personal and company values align

Your personal work style may not mesh (fit) with how we work at Ford. There’s no value judgment, but you’ll be more successful in another organization.

 

Noticing good work, and recognizing it

 

(Ford has) a process and system in place to encourage and support ... (everyone) to notice the good work of others in line the core values.

 

With everyone (involved), the desired behaviors become much better understood, (modelled and normalized).

 

(We can) then easily track the desired behaviors (and provide) additional intervention and training as needed.

 

[In this key area of implementation, the information is scant.]

100% de acuerdo con lo que se expone en el artículo, desde la introducción, el liderazgo no es un "accidente", es reflejo de un esfuerzo y desarrollo continuado en el tiempo, hasta los 5 puntos para convertir adversarios en aliados:

 

- Gestiona tus emociones

- Tu eres tu y tus creencias y los demás tienen las suyas

- Todos tenemos ego, "yo" también

- Crea entornos adecuados para la conciliación (este quizás lo describiría de forma diferente, sonreir cuando uno está ¿sorprendido? hace poner una mueca, al menos desde mi perspectiva, pondría:

1º foco en la solución

2º controla la subida de "adrenalina"

3º + foco en la solución

4º practica el beneficio de la duda y pregunta

5º + foco en la solución

6º mantén el diálogo abierto hasta que llegues a la solución

- Tacto y consideración y empatía
