Email Can Spell Disaster for Leaders

Email Can Spell Disaster for Leaders | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

"Every leader is guilty of having used email rather than talking to someone in person. "

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's curator insight, March 24, 3:39 PM

 

"We’ve all done it: Every leader is guilty of having used email rather than talking to someone in person. When I worked in a corporate office, it was commonplace to send emails to team members whose offices were only a short distance down the hall.

 

"That’s because email is easier and faster than having a conversation. And, as an added bonus, there’s a record of the transaction (just in case you need proof later on). The problem, however, is when leaders use email in place of face-to-face communication more often than they should."

Leaders should ask these questions both on a daily basis and during critical moments. Of course, these aren’t the only questions to ask; context certainly matters. But I have found these five to be a very practical and useful way to ensure understanding, generate new ideas, inspire progress, encourage responsibility, and remain focused on what is genuinely important.

As a visionary leader, you need to be your organization’s oracle, driving its performance down a pioneering path into the future. To be a positive, transformational leader you need a clear vision if your organization is going to survive and thrive. But you and the vision are indistinguishable. Without a clear vision, you won’t last. And without a visionary leader, neither will the vision.

The three key points are interesting: stop giving feedback unless requested, stop conducting one-on-one meetings, and stop motivating people.

In teaching, teachers are often treated as if they are irresponsible and unable to make choices themselves. The essential piece is to allow teachers to act autonomously and responsibly in seeking feedback. I subscribe to the idea that I want to be a teacher. It is a calling. I don't need someone intervening to motivate me. The challenge was/is most of the feedback was useless and demotivating.

Changing silos into alliances does not occur suddenly. The civil rights movement lasted decades. And, it was not a smooth transformation from a compilation of well-coordinated initiatives. It was a collection of quick wins from many isolated efforts. Great bridge building leaders are patient. But, like the leaders of the civil rights movement, they seize small opportunities to move toward a clear and present goal that never escapes their sights. They know that bridge building can involve two steps forward and one step back. Yet, like Rosa Parks, it begins with the courage and commitment to take the first step.

Data and measurement is useful in its place.... trying to identify how engaged people are through a metric, survey or compass is bullshit. "How engaged, motivated, and fulfilled a person is cannot be defined by a number. Think about it. What does a 6 really mean on a 10 point scale?" If your associates are not engaged  thats a communication problem , a relationship problem  ... instead of focusing on a score out of 5 or 10 try looking into what you and your leaders are saying and how they say it. Work on their approach and communication with their associates. Nice read and quote ...
