Why Executives Are So Bad At The Behavioral Side Of Management

Why Executives Are So Bad At The Behavioral Side Of Management | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
For too long, we’ve thought of “hard skills” and “soft skills” as mutually exclusive. Hard skills are supposed to provide the value, and soft skills supposed to be subordinate, inferior, and all about feelings. Some frameworks of leadership reinforce this myth by encouraging positioning leaders as above the group and magically removed from doubt and anxiety.


In reality, there is nothing “soft” about the skills needed to relate to people well enough to lead them.

How to Compete with Larger Businesses

Eric Frykman's curator insight, September 23, 4:36 PM

This article has a four point list:

1) Credibility

2) Product

3) Service

4) Price

 

This was not written by anyone in sales, as #4 should be off the table completely. Product is "do you have more bells" and Service is "can you be better than your competition."

 

None of this is useful to a small company competing against a giant.

 

What you really need is to build 

5) VALUE

 

I.e. Why are you here - what pain are you solving? How are YOU my savior? How do you fix all my problems and help me get to sleep at night? 

 

That's how you compete and become a giant-killer. Focus your story around Value, and you'll win every time.
