Don Cloud's insight:

Thanks for sharing ... I particular like the part on creating the ladder for others.


Patricia ... in answer to one of your questions ... as a leader, you can have a profound influence on reducing email.  Here's some simple rules:


1) Don't respond to emails someone else in the organization can (and should) be answering at their level.  Respond to the ones that truly require your action, decision, or response.


2) Don't email off-hours ... set the conditions where if something requires your attention, then someone needs to call you.


Have had a lot of luck using these ... emails end up routed where they should go anyways (direct to the decision makers empowered to act upon them at the appropriate level) -- and it forces important discussions to be discussions (that is actual talking).

It is about time for structures to open up.  We have known that open systems work better in science for a long time.

The smart leaders understand the concept of following from the front, that is, removing obstacles from the paths of employees to help them become successful.  Scaring your employees into doing what you want is a failed approach to leadership yet unfortunately this is how many of our companies were created; it’s time to evolve this way of leading.

Competent, lazy leaders are dangerous.

  • “Why fix something that’s working?”
  • “I was promoted to this position for a reason.”
  • “I’ve seen this movie before.”

Beware of highly skilled, non-learning leaders.
