Breakout Discussion

In reviewing the 6 Ways to Lead video, what did you notice about the approaches you use when engaging the teams you lead? What questions / observations / insights did this video create for you?

Take :10 to discuss and capture your thoughts on the whiteboard page in your breakout room

Have someone ready to summarize when we come back to the main room

3 Key Team Behaviors/

Agreements

Being candid and loyal to the absent I avoid gossiping

(e.g., I don’t bad mouth someone “not in the room” and I

encourage others to refrain likewise.) I don’t deliver messages

For others and if I have a beef with someone, I talk to them directly. 1 2 3 4

Team before personal: I put the team/organization’s goals

before my own. If someone has an idea that’s working better

than my own, I offer my time, budget, resources to help them 1 2 3 4

succeed.

Transparency: I am completely open in sharing my thinking

and information I have at any given moment. If I disagree, I

bring it up in the meeting vs. in the hall, and I do it agreeably.

I model the behavior of “If I have more information than you,

I am obligated to share it. If it seems you have more than 1 2 3 4

me, I am obligated to ask.”

slide17

“Want to know our secret? In 1998 we

put into place one simple spiritual principle. We call it the 24 hour rule. If I have a problem with you, I promise to go to you to ‘face it, solve it and forget it.’ We do not talk about people behind their backs. That’s our solemn agreement.”

Former female VP at Redken, reflecting on what

helped them turn around their business

slide18

Girl Scout Min Specs?

  • Girl-Led
  • Learn By Doing
  • Cooperative Learning
slide19

Use “Min Specs” to

organize efforts

  • Hunterdon Hospital – Community Service Work
  • Up to ½ day/week – something you care deeply about
  • Cannot do anything illegal
  • Take funds on your own, just post for others to see
slide20

Can you think of processes, procedures/programs at your location that a “min specs” approach might be a better way to go?

slide21

Breakout Discussion

In the Andy’s Dilemma story, we see how a leader chose to engage his people and how they designed their organization to tackle the issue of “balancing structure with freedom”. What did you find interesting in this story?

Take :10 to discuss, and if you wish, take notes on your whiteboard. Assign someone to summarize in the main room.

slide22

Suggestions…

Remember to be firm and clear about the “What” and “Why” and where you can be flexible is around the “How”

When offering a bold vision to a group, know that it will scare some, and be empathetic to that, but don’t compromise to try and make it “comfortable” for everyone.

Use the Engaging Others model on slide 15 to help you remember to provide a “why” and stay

out of the “how”.

slide23

Closing thought…

“In my 30 years of consulting, I have yet to see an organization client-system that was not overmanaged”

~ Jack Gibb
