Hoping we prevail or get KO’d?
Modern Leadership Challenges
-Lack of clarity….what does mission success look like and why does it matter?
-Self Awareness …..where are we really?
-Creativity and innovation are suffocated….does innovation come from the top?
-Inability to change course….weak or dead feedback loops?
-Habits-hard wiring….Neurons that fire together wire together
-Unable to embrace ambiguity…..wed to plan that may be obsolete
-Bottleneck leaders…….all of us waiting on one of us
Command & Control
“Plan Never Survives First Contact”
“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face”
A clear and concise expression of the purpose of the operation and the desired end state that provides focus to the staff, and helps supporting leaders act to achieve the commanders desired result without further order, even when the operation does not unfold as planned
Why not “Command & Control”?
-Rate of change
Leader’s focus is “what and why” NOT “how”
Doing things “right” = play called (single looper)
Doing the “right things” = the audible
“Leadership is getting someone to do what you want them to do, because they want to do it”
How do you get people to want to follow you?
Celebrate their struggle!
“People take time to be well
or they take time to be ill”
“Success has a thousand fathers while failure is an orphan”
-pre or post game thought?
Be the weather!
“Hey good lookin’ - what ya got cookin’?
-Can our people restate Commanders Intent for 2 levels above them?
-Are feedback loops thriving, allowing us to pivot or persevere with confidence?
-Is creativity and Innovation alive and well?
-Are people able to make timely decisions when or do they wait on us?
-Can we except VUCA and embrace ambiguity?
-Are we CROs? Constantly reminding on the “what and why” of the mission?
-Are our teams still effective when communication is cut off?
