Unspoken Feedback

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Leadership TrainingEver wonder what your employees are thinking about you?

If so, you’re probably a better-than-average leader who takes the time to observe body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice, so you can tell when someone’s frustrated, confused, or just plain upset about something that’s happened.

But even in the best of manager/employee relationships, you’re probably not going to get the type of  in-depth honest feedback that might help you make real changes. Even in organizations where 360-degree reviews are consistently used, feedback isn’t always timely – or completely honest.

So what’s a manager to do when s/he wants to improve?

It goes back to observation, and to caring about what your team thinks and feels.

It’s not hard to learn how people act when they’re upset, hurt, frustrated, or angry.

It’s not hard to notice when something you’ve done has triggered their reaction.

It can be hard to be honest enough with yourself to acknowledge the connection between your actions and their reactions, and to be vulnerable enough to explore how you might do things differently in the future. (more…)

Are You a Hoarder?

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Leadership TrainingNo, we’re not talking about the TV show, and we don’t suspect you of secretly stockpiling paper clips – or even of having too many cats.

But you – or others in your organization – might be hoarding knowledge.

The phrase “knowledge is power”  is sometimes interpreted  as, “If I keep all the knowledge to myself, I will have power.” This is the hoarder model. It’s based on the flawed assumption that knowledge is in short supply, and that if we “give it away” by sharing what we know, we lose something.

The statement “knowledge shared is knowledge multiplied” is a more helpful approach, recognizing the reality that knowledge isn’t a “thing” that, when we give it away, we no longer have. Instead, shared knowledge increases understanding and insight.

When knowledge flows within an organization, that sends a message of trust and confidence to all employees. This alone tends to motivate and energize everyone involved. (more…)

Would I Work for Me?

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Leadership Training VideosBeing the boss can be challenging. Higher paychecks come with more responsibility, more pressure, and often more time spent worrying about work. This increase in stress can lead to tension in the workplace. Studies have shown that a great or bad boss is the number-one factor that influences people’s performance at work. A great boss helps people thrive, while a bad one induces people to quit or do less-than-satisfactory work.

There are several keys to being a great boss:

  • Share information
  • Get people involved
  • Listen to people’s concerns
  • Take action to show you care
  • Tell people what they’re doing right
  • Focus on solutions, not problems
  • Deal with mistakes in private
  • Use mistakes to help people

These skills improve motivation, productivity, and the bottom line. They take negatives and turn them into positives. (more…)

The Pygmalion Effect

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

The Pygmalion EffectMuch has been written about the Pygmalion Effect, but what is it? More importantly, how can it affect you and your organization?

The Pygmalion Effect, sometimes referred to as a “self-fulfilling prophecy”, occurs when the expectations we have for another (be they positive or negative) influence that person’s performance. The phenomenon has been studied and documented numerous times both in business and education.

The illuminating video The Pygmalion Effect  uses a variety of vignettes and real-world case studies to show how teachers and managers unwittingly transmit expectations to employees and students. Time and time again, viewers see that high expectations lead to improved performance while low expectations lead to diminished performance. (more…)

Leadership and Self Deception

Wednesday, December 25th, 2013

Leadership Training VideosIt is human nature to want to to blame others for our problems or to attribute them to circumstances “beyond our control”.   But, in many cases, when we do this, we miss the opportunity to actually solve the problem.  Why?  Because in many cases the root cause of the problem is us!

In the workplace, leaders engage in this type of avoidance all the time. It’s called self deception and it is said to be the #1 cause of organizational ineffectiveness.

Based on the bestselling book by the same name, the thought-provoking video training program Leadership and Self Deception helps people examine the role they play in recurring problems.  Trainees gain awareness into what they can do to break through this barrier and, in the process, increase productivity and improve workplace relationships.   The program’s video features a dramatic reenactment of 19th century physician Ignaz Semmelweiss’ profound discovery surrounding the root cause of certain diseases.  This video, along with comprehensive workshop materials, sets the stage for breakthrough group discussion and personal growth and discovery.
