Leading from where we stand
“Leading from where we stand.”

“LEADERSHIP IS THE ACT OR PROCESS OF INFLUENCING THE ACTIVITIES OF AN ORGANIZED GROUP IN ITS EFFORTS TOWARD GOAL SETTING AND GOAL ACHIEVEMENT.”

– R.M. STOGDILL, HANDBOOK OF LEADERSHIP:


Influence
INFLUENCE

“The power or capacity of causing an effect in indirect or intangible ways”

– From Webster’s Dictionary


Speech acts
Speech Acts

Source: Brothers, 2005

Language is not only descriptive but fundamentally creative and generative. Language is, therefore, action.

  • Assessments and Assertions

  • Declarations

  • Requests, Offers, and Agreements

P l a y archetypes for powerful presence
P.L.A.Y.™: Archetypes for Powerful Presence

Monarch

Warrior

Center

Lover

Fool


Center a place of groundedness
CenterA place of groundedness

Center is our foundation.

Center is the key to harnessing the power from each of the archetypes.


Warrior
WARRIOR

Warrior energy is the energy we use to bust through the barriers in front of us like a hot knife through butter. It is the energy of the Samurai, or that of a mother fighting for her child or project manager moving his or her team forward despite the breakdowns of life.


Warrior practice
WARRIOR Practice

  • Get clear about what you are committed to that is larger than yourself. Stay clear about it. Remind yourself daily.

    • Getting and staying clear is a practice, one you might choose to live.

  • Practice the Shogun strike daily for the sake of what you are committed to larger than you. Do 10 strikes a day for each one


Monarch
MONARCH

King/Queen energy is the energy we use to remain calm in the face of a storm. We are relaxed and sensing all yet we do not tighten or tense up to produce the illusion of being calm, we ARE calm. We are in our feet and our feet are on the ground. We are a rock. From this place others may find calmness too.


King queen practice
King/QueenPractice

Go out into public and stand in the posture of the King/Queen.

Insert yourself (physically) into situations at home or work where there is discord, or an argument and practice staying centered and aware as often as possible.

As much as possible, stay in any conversation that is uncomfortable while repeating the mantra in your head “everything is going to be OK”

Hint: You are in this energy if you are able to be centered, relaxed, seeing all and connected to all while all hell breaks loose around you.


Designing your conversation
Designing your conversation

  • What do you want out of it?

  • What do you know about your audience?

  • What will you have to do to build connection?

Scripting

  • Context

  • Effective Questions

  • Listen for



Making requests
Making Requests

Effective Requests include:

  • What you want.

  • Who you want it from.

  • Conditions of satisfaction:

    • Timeframe.

    • Outcome you are expecting.

  • A shared context.

  • Complete with a response(yes, no, counteroffer).


  • Agreements promises commitments
    Agreements (Promises, Commitments)

    • Occurs when a request or offer is met with a “yes.”

    • We can actively “manage our commitments.”

    • Communities are collections of agreements—this is how we coordinate action.

    • Affects our relationships and trust if we break or have missing agreements.

    Making effective and complete requests
    Making Effectiveand Complete Requests

    • Be precise with your language. Ask for what you really want.

    • Ask yourself, “What do I want to happen or stop happening as a result of what I’m about to say?”

    • Speak in a manner that fits your style and relationship.

    • Check for understanding.

    • Listen carefully to the response – did you receive a committed response?

    • Use gracious persistence in follow-up to a non-response.

    • Remember, when you request, you’re joining words and action.
