Six Coaching Strategies You Can Apply in the Workplace

Six Coaching Strategies You Can Apply in the Workplace | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Whether on the gridiron, in the boardroom, as part of a project team, or as a personal or professional counselor, all coaches use similar tenets and tools to help others excel. Coaches might implement these tools in different ways, but the common denominators present in most coaching relationships can have lasting effects on employees' performance, as well as on your own.

Half of employees ‘feel threatened by bosses’

Half of employees ‘feel threatened by bosses’ | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Almost half of employees (47%) say they feel threatened by leaders within their organisations, according to research published today.

 

The research, by development consultancy Head Heart + Brain, found that poor leadership skills have led many employees to feel "actively threatened" by their bosses' behaviour.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, April 20, 2013 9:58 PM

This is truly concerning.  From the article:

 

"In the current economic climate, both business and public-sector leaders feel they have to run just in order to stand still. They are under immense pressure to make their organisations leaner while also improving performance.

 

And pressure breeds threatening behaviour if it isn't channelled in the right way. If it is managed in the wrong way, stress can gradually erode the quality of their leadership until it deteriorates to a disastrously low level.

 

 

"It creates a vicious downward cycle where productivity begins to suffer as the work force begins to feel increasingly threatened by brain-fried leaders."

Nilofer Merchant, HBR Writer and founder of Rubicon Consulting said:

"When I was 20-something ... I walked into my boss’s office, the division leader ... I told him that I felt like on any given day I was facing a tsunami of things I could pay attention to, and there was no way I could work any harder to make stuff happen. I was asking for more resources, as the answer. And he sat me down as he might one of his many kids and gave me this advice:

"Feed the Eagles and Starve the Turkeys."

Feed the Eagles. There are only a few things that matter. Know what they are. And place your energy into them. They aren’t always right in front of you so you need to look up and out more. Starve the Turkeys – lots of things are right in front of you … pecking around, making noise, and demanding attention. Because they are right in front of you, it’s easy to pay attention to them most and first. Ignore them. They will actually do fine without you."

(Source: LinkedIn - http://goo.gl/SEYTV)

We have so many people around us who define our daily life - people we like and who peck around and make noise. These people search our daily love and attention. And we are so familiar with these people that we sometimes only see them and are totally influenced by them.

We only see the pecking turkeys in front us and don't look up to the eagles above us. 

For a loving and empathic person this is often hard to realize. A loving person sees people with an open heart and with love and respects people's efforts and search for love. But one day you come to a point where you find yourself always in the same situation and nothing changes. This is like appreciating only our beloved family and never talking to other people and forgetting that there is another world outside. It is like mothering our own family till excess and forgetting to give love to others. These familiar people will do very well without us, when they have learned to master their life and to lead themselves. When we learn to hold them with a long leash they will very well do without us. Why? Because they love us and follow us nevertheless. And those who don't follow us anymore these people we have lost long time ago - we only did not realize that. 

LEARN TO CUT THE CORD - LEARN TO GIVE UP MOTHERING FAMILIAR PEOPLE AROUND YOU!

YOU ALREADY HAVE THEIR ATTENTION!

LEARN TO FIND NEW WORLDS THAT MIGHT BE IMPORTANT FOR YOU!

Leadership is not about clinging to familiar people - it is about developing ourselves steadily further in walking new paths. Paths that will help us to grow in ourselves. Only when we have the chance to grow in ourselves we may support other people in becoming leaders, too. Exhausted leadership will never have a chance for growth.  

Seek for the eagles and feed them.

It is not the image we like to have when we think of business leaders. But troubling research indicates that in the ranks of senior management, psychopathic behavior may be more common than we think – more prevalent in fact than the amount such seriously aberrant behavior occurs in the general population.

 Researchers studying the application of Positive Psychology to the workplace have carefully considered this idea - as a growing body of evidence demonstrates that a positive mindset can not only affect our attitudes toward work, but the outcomes which follow. Indeed, the "psychological capital" that we bring to the table, can have a significant impact upon work and career.
