So many of us daily encounter that truth is not being heard. We as leaders need to build a culture of truth. How do we do that?
- Lead your people with questions, not with answers.
- Freely engage in dialog and have debates, don’t force anybody.
- When something dies, conduct an autopsy together and do not blame anybody.
- Implement a culture where people can raise red flags.
You will notice that where truth is heard, freedom arises!
There is no worse mistake in public leadership than to hold out false hopes soon to be swept away.
Leaders, concerned more with their own reputation for personal greatness, often fail to set the company up for success in the next generation. – Jim Collins (adapted)
LYDIA Connect says this world is in a leadership crisis: many of today’s leaders care more about themselves and their image than about those who follow them. Our TL-Training addresses this crisis. This unique training empowers mutual relationships and removes constraints, resulting in clear goals and better performance. Explore for yourselves!
Today I came across this post. It hit a nerve, sometimes we overstate our professional views. Be open to try something new!
“Over time, I have learned two important lessons: 1) all personal feedback is relevant and 2) change seldom occurs until the pain of staying the same exceeds the pain of changing.” – Ford Taylor (Transformational Leadership)
Being a pioneer involves breaking through walls and barriers, you got to have tenacity! But the joy, oh the joy!
Often we are so in the moment that we cannot really see what is going on, especially when under pressure. That is why we advise you to keep asking for honest feedback from your team, peers and leaders to keep improving. Not all feedback may be true, but all feedback is relevant!
You have to see it (knowledge), in order to own it (attitude) and then you can change it (behaviour)! All change starts with seeing it! Even stronger…, no relational or organisational change will happen without: see it, own it and change it.
Our company Lydia Connect is now officially registered since 20 April 2018. We are honoured to offer you four services: transformational leadership training, export readiness training, consultancy and events. Stay tuned!
