Exceptional Leadership Motivates the very best Effort in Others

There is a steady stream being written and taught about leadership nowadays. There are tips about leadership, courses about leadership, books, retreats, and continuing education– all focused on leadership. While all of this product is useful and can certainly enhance one’s leadership knowledge, for the most part it prevents asking and answering two questions:

Why does better leadership make a distinction?, and
How does better leadership attain those distinctions?
We all understand we’re “supposed” to work to be better leaders, but why does it matter, what effect does it have, and how does this all work?
Whenever I ask the “Why” question, the responses that concern the mind of the majority of people are something like “better leadership creates more productivity, greater profits, lower turnover, higher task fulfillment, more loyalty … you get the picture. These reactions bring us to the genuine question which is, “How does better leadership create those things? How does being a much better leader lead to more productivity, greater profits, lower turnover, higher task fulfillment, more loyalty?” It is the responses to these two questions which raise us from merely discovering and understanding better leadership principles to pursuing a strategy which transforms us and our leadership abilities into something that truly makes a distinction.

I typically recommend that my customers utilize their own experience as their best example. Ask yourself when, throughout your profession, you felt the most satisfied, many productive, proudest, most focused, and many committed. When we reflect back on those times, most of us would acknowledge that we didn’t seem like we did since our “leader” had actually made an excellent choice, or that they had actually gone through “leadership training” (That term is in quotes since leaders need to be developed, not trained.), or that their leaders were efficient, fulfilled their goals, or had success in the past. No, generally we felt the method we did (satisfied, productive, happy, focused, and committed) since of what we did– what we accomplished. All of it returns to us and how we felt. It’s typically not about anything external– it comes down to our feelings. The key to extraordinary leadership, for that reason, lies within our ability to relate effectively with people and their feelings.

The crucial then, to better performance, is helping people feel more satisfied, productive, happy, focused, and committed. Notice that we’ve have not brought up the concept of “encouraging” people? We have not touched on encouraging people for one simple reason … people can’t be motivated!

Exceptional leadership, for that reason, is leadership that motivates people to provide their best effort. Exceptional leadership is about relating to people in such a method as to influence them to provide their best effort– for themselves, their organization, their community, their household, and/or their world.

How is this accomplished? The foundation of extraordinary leadership– of inspiring others– comprises thee locations – Effective Leadership Philosophies (for yourself and your organization), Effective Purpose, Mission and Values, and Effective People Skills.

* EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP PHILOSOPHIES for Highlands Utah

Leading by Example – Whether we acknowledge it or not, we always lead by example. In our words (what we state or don’t state), in our actions (what we do or don’t do), and in our expressions (what we show or don’t show). The important things we state and do, throughout moments of “apparent insignificance”, make an impression on those around us.

Servant Leader Philosophies – In our leadership workshops, I’ll ask participants who the most essential individual is to a company. The answer, of course, is the client. The question that follows next is, “Who is the most essential individual in the business to that client?”

Most people get that the individual essential to the client is the one they are available in contact with – the “frontline”. The question that follows is the genuine key to a much better understanding of servant leadership. This question is, “What, then, is the task of the manager of those frontline people?” The task of the managers of the frontline folks is to make their task as easy and as reliable as possible so that the client has the very best experience possible! If this leadership philosophy is embraced throughout an organization, it ends up with an organizational chart that looks like an inverted pyramid. It is an organization that acknowledges the value of the frontline and reflects the philosophy of service throughout.

* EFFECTIVE PURPOSE, MISSION AND VALUES

A company which motivates the very best effort in its people will attract the kind of workers it wants and needs, and will keep them. It has a Purpose, a Mission, and a set of Values that it lives by, it effectively communicates them, and it measures its actions and choices against them.
Function is the “WHY” of the equation. It defines why we do what we do. Each choice and policy should take the business

Why Four Lenses?

The Four Lenses is a proven personality temperament model that acts as a universal companion to any training or initiative. This foundational training helps individuals and organizations establish a common language and value system for diverse perspectives and unique talent in the workplace, in the classroom, or simply in life.

By failing to truly understand those around us, surely, we are missing one of the greatest opportunities life has to offer.

The Four Lenses training will forever change the way you see the world. Participants discover unique aspects about themselves and everyone around them. After completing a personality temperament assessment, participants begin learning through online training modules, books, and participating in the online community.  Participants learn to interact with others in a powerful new way.
