Highlands Utah Leadership Training

Exceptional Leadership Influences the very best Effort in Others

There is a steady stream being written and taught about management these days. There are pointers about management, courses about management, books, retreats, and continuing education– all focused on management. While all of this product is useful and can certainly improve one’s management knowledge, for the a lot of part it prevents asking and answering two questions:

Why does better management make a difference?, and
How does better management attain those distinctions?
We all know we’re “supposed” to work to be better leaders, however why does it matter, what effect does it have, and how does this all work?
Whenever I ask the “Why” question, the answers that pertain to the mind of most people are something like “better management develops more performance, higher profits, lower turnover, higher task satisfaction, more commitment … you get the picture. These actions bring us to the real question which is, “How does better management produce those things? How does being a much better leader lead to more performance, higher profits, lower turnover, higher task satisfaction, more commitment?” It is the answers to these two questions which raise us from merely discovering and understanding better management principles to pursuing a course of action which transforms us and our management abilities into something that truly makes a difference.

I often suggest that my clients utilize their own experience as their best example. No, generally we felt the method we did (pleased, productive, happy, focused, and committed) since of what we did– what we accomplished. The key to extraordinary management, for that reason, lies within our ability to relate effectively with people and their emotions.

Imagine if everyone at work felt pleased, productive, happy, focused, and committed! What would the repercussions be? The repercussions would be that everyone would produce higher performance, higher profits, lower turnover, higher task satisfaction, and more commitment! The crucial then, to better efficiency, is helping people feel more pleased, productive, happy, focused, and committed. Notice the absence of any technical or intelligence problems? Notice that we’ve have not brought up the idea of “encouraging” people? We have not touched on encouraging people for one basic reason … people can’t be motivated! Trying to encourage somebody is comparable to physically attempting to get them to do something they do not want to do. You will not prosper. What truly works is when we’re self-motivated– when we do something since we want to. When we’re inspired, we enjoy our work. We’re productive and happy of our efforts. We stay focused and committed to the task at hand. In other words, we put forth out best effort.

Exceptional management, for that reason, is management that inspires people to provide their best effort. For a leader, being productive and having excellent time management skills are essential and essential, they are not sufficient. Having profundity becomes progressively essential the higher in an organization we increase, however it too is inadequate for really reliable management. Exceptional management is about connecting to people in such a method as to motivate them to provide their best effort– on their own, their company, their neighborhood, their family, and/or their world.

How is this accomplished? The structure of extraordinary management– of inspiring others– comprises thee locations – Effective Leadership Philosophies (for yourself and your company), 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 say or do not say), in our actions (what we do or do not do), and in our expressions (what we reveal or do not reveal). The important things we do and say, during moments of “obvious insignificance”, make an impression on those around us.

Servant Leader Philosophies – In our management workshops, I’ll ask individuals who the most essential individual is to a business. The response, of course, is the customer. The question that follows next is, “Who is the most essential individual in the business to that customer?”

Most people get that the individual essential to the customer is the one they are available in contact with – the “frontline”. The question that follows is the real key to a much better understanding of servant management. This question is, “What, then, is the task of the supervisor 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 customer has the very best experience possible! It ends up with an organizational chart that looks like an inverted pyramid if this management philosophy is embraced throughout an organization. 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 inspires the very best effort in its people will draw in the kind of employees it wants and needs, and will retain 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

There are pointers about management, courses about management, books, retreats, and continuing education– all focused on management.
