How to Manage Someone Who Rubs You the Wrong Way

How to Manage Someone Who Rubs You the Wrong Way | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

You can't love everyone who works for you. Here Inc. columnists share how to manage talented people who you find irritating.

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): It's not that uncommon in larger companies to have employees who do a great job but their personality just rubs you the wrong way.  People are people and not everyone can be totally dispassionate. But a great manager can put aside their personal feelings and look objectively. I have mostly found that those people who make me uncomfortable are often my greatest teachers.

Joe Boutte's curator insight, June 13, 6:21 AM

I think we all run into people that irritate us and this article from inc.com has some good pointers for overcoming irritation.  I wouldn't characterize it as "managing" irritating people, because we manage things.  We lead people, even those who irritate us, through influence and everyday leadership approaches to get the job or mission accomplished.

Being Leader-ish: When You’re Not Quite a Leader

Being Leader-ish: When You’re Not Quite a Leader | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

But when is being ish not okay? What about in leadership? Is being leader-ish okay, not okay, or maybe okay-ish?

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Every leader, at one time or another, has probably done something leader-ish. Because leadership is not always easy, and sometimes we instinctively seek convenience.

 

But true character-based leadership emerges through discomfort. Ours, and others. It requires focusing our attention on how we can make others shine. Making mindful judgment calls. Getting things done through others, and winning their hearts and minds in the process. Handling people as unique individuals. Looking beyond our positions to the behaviors and choices that are best for our employees, for the team, for the organization, and its customer.

 

Are you a leader, or leader-ish?

Now there is a word for those inbetweeners-  'Leader-ish'.

Managing a Negative, Out-of-Touch Boss

Managing a Negative, Out-of-Touch Boss | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

The most frequent question the author get asked by the 250,000 people enrolled in his MOOC on leadership is, “How do I deal with my boss who is not only dissonant, but quite negative?” These bosses are “dissonant” in the sense that they’ve lost touch with themselves, others and their surroundings — and it’s nothing new. They come across as negative, self-centered, focused on numbers, and their employees feel like they’re being treated as resources or assets (not as human beings).

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): So what do you do if you have a boss who’s fallen into this trap? First, recognize that these bosses are diminishing themselves and their ability to effectively lead others. They can deliver on known tasks — mostly routine tasks — but this style returns the least amount of innovation, the lowest levels of employee engagement, and often the lowest performance from teams.

Start by understanding the neuroscience to manage a negative, out-of-touch boss.

If you don't manage upwards, you won't be able to manage downwards effectively!

Lumus360's curator insight, June 9, 6:37 AM

Great article – Which raises the questions:  How did he/she get to this point of being dissonant and #negative? & How do we #feedback our view of him/ her, right now, without completely destroying his/her confidence.  Or do we break their confidence and wait and see what arises from the ashes?
