Leadership - NEW!

"Talent Management...Not With the Same Old Leadership Skills!"

More Less

There is much conversation today about the failure of the hierarchy system…too many layers, too many bosses, too much middle management. In today's corporate environment we know that to have a Masters Degree doesn't assure a skilled manager of people and procedures; however, one thing is for sure…there has to be a leader…one who manage talent! Just as every ship has a captain, every school a principal, every church a minister, every country a president, every organization has to have a leader who is also a true manager of people and programs! This person has final say when necessary, creates motivation and passion, sets the path and shows the way. It has been proven over and over; the speed of the leader is the speed of the team. Very specific skills are needed to be a great leader / manager. This session examines how leadership can make or break the success efforts of any 'team.' Learn to be the type of leader-manager who inspires, challenges, and creates the desire for success.

What Does it Take to be Fully Awake?

My 32 year old grandson quit his job recently. Right in the middle of the workday, his boss “hurt his feelings and embarrassed him” so he removed his Chef's apron and walked out.

Now he is without work, and has been for several weeks. I asked him if he learned anything and he said “Yeah, I need to think before I act.” He is now suffering the consequences of his reaction, his behavior without thought. Actually he is feeling the pain produced by a decision without concern about his future (to say nothing of his rent!)

One of my coaching clients has been in trouble many times because of her mouth…speaking out of turn; saying inappropriate things at the wrong time has cost her a job more than once. We came up with the simplest solution. When she feels the urge to speak up, she pops herself with the rubber band we placed on her wrist. It is a reminder to listen and think, and often stops her from speaking and causing painful consequences.

What do we gain from pain? For sure a life lesson, but how many times will we do it before we wake up, become fully conscious. How many times do we repeat behaviors that have previously caused us pain? I bet most you have heard this cliché; if a snake bites you once, shame on the snake. If it bites you again, shame on you. How many times do we have to stick a screwdriver into the electrical outlet before we wake up to the fact that it will always give us a shock? Wouldn't life be better if we never did it again?

Sometimes I am concerned that we are asleep at the wheel, driving blindly through life. Take the pain of repeated mistakes and apply to our lives overall. Our joy, our prosperity, our health, our relationships, our future are directly impacted by acting without thinking of the repercussions. Shooting from the hip without thought can cost other's trust, our reputation, our family, love, even peace of mind.

How can we gain freedom from pain? Wake up and get the lesson. We all have regrets. “I wish I hadn't said that. I wish I hadn't done that.” Mine is “I wish I hadn't eaten that!” I am working on that one in my goal of losing 10 pounds! The challenge is not recognizing that our mistakes in behavior are lessons, and that if we don't learn them we will keep repeating them. And with each repetition not only do we suffer, we make others suffer.

These are hard lessons. And even if we do learn, we get it, we WAKE UP, we evolve, we will not be perfect. Something pulls our chain, someone criticizes us and we react without being fully awake. Maybe you are sensitive to feelings of rejection so you retaliate. Perhaps we need a key word that will instantly call our attention to what is happening.

Let's take the word STOP as part of our “wake up, wait, think it though, sleep on it” system.

S. Slow down. What's the hurry? How will I react if I wait until tomorrow? Would I still say it if I had to wait 2 to 3 hours? Say to yourself “STOP”

T. Thinking Tools are available to us, that rubber band pop means that we will not take action without asking ourselves “What will happen if I do say this? Who all will suffer if I act without thinking? What consequences will there be from my behavior?”

O. Observe how others react to our words and behaviors. Do we hurt feelings, cause tears? Thinking back on our history, those whom we have hurt, how we could/should have handled a situation differently? If we have ever thought or said “I'm sorry, I should have handled that differently, I wish I had thought that through” we are STOP candidates.

P. Put a plan in place and our brain in gear before stepping on the gas! Put that rubber band on our wrist. When people ask us why we are wearing a rubber band, tell them that it is part of our plan to live our life fully awake. Don't be surprised if many people who know us get themselves a rubber band because they also to need to wake up. By the time we have walked around a couple of weeks with a whelp on our wrist, we may be able to stop popping ourselves.

Why? Because we will be living our life aware, alive and fully AWAKE. We will automatically know through learned pain to STOP.

Now go put on your rubber band!
