As an organization we need to give leaders increased latitude and ability to act and make decisions without the red tape.
We have found ourselves as a merging organization and not an emerging one.
I challenged our leaders to emerge and not to continue to merge into the same flow we have had for the last several years. I learned this principle from Seth Godin.
One of my greatest weaknesses as a leader has been to tell people what to do. I am good at doing, and telling others how to do it. I recently made a change in my thinking process. The change included seeing the outcomes and not just doing the activity.
I began to try and see what people could do, if they could just “be.”
I titled my talk ‘Be.” I posted my thoughts below.
Be informed on the Vision, Values, and Goals
Be an empowered leader and not just a follower!
Be an Owner of the vision
Be creative ~ take liberty, surprise us!
- Hold other’s accountable
Be a bar raiser
- quit being normal
- quit the sameness
- quit being predictable
- quit the comfortability
Be a problem solver
Be a drafting agent for your department
Be excellent in every area!
Be a good team mate ~ Engage and encourage your team!
Be the last one to go home
Be your best
Most of all~BE YOU!
The talk was inspiring and the results were empowering.
Our leaders left empowered and ready to emerge!
