Active CEO Performance Tip

People Want To Be Led – There has been an increase in focus on collaborative leadership in recent times. When COVID-19 took hold of the world, the most successful and effective leaders went into an authoritative leadership style. Why is this? The majority of people in the world seek to be led rather than lead when overwhelm and uncertainty consumed us. Human beings natural default is comfort and went on high alert for someone to assure them. The successful leaders during COVID-19 responded quickly, made a decision (rightly or wrongly) and provided a clear direction, which gave people hope, a level of certainty and they knew someone cared. The reason the leaders could thrive in an Authoritative Leadership mode was because they had already build up a certain level of trust and loyalty with their people, which is likely to have included aspects of collaborative leadership.

PEOPLE Serve People Who Matter

Employees are the heartbeat of a company. What happens if the heart stops beating? It is important to note that people can be your greatest assets, but they can also be your greatest liabilities!

People don’t leave companies, they leave managers! Employees who have been pushed to the point that they no longer care, will not go the extra mile.

People are our greatest assets so it is important that you serve those who matter, through a coaching leadership approach where you create a growth and learning environment.

Are you being a servant leader who has a coaching leadership approach?

  1. Recruitment and Selection
  2. Targeted Training
  3. Knowledge Sharing

Leadership Talent Cycle

  1. Talent Identification – through effective recruitment practices
  2. Talent Development – through a coach leadership approach
  3. Talent Performance – through removing barriers and getting out of the way

Leadership Growth Triad

  1. 3x Talent Cycle
  2. Recruit Employees who have talent
  3. Recruit Mentors who train employees
  4. Recruit Coaches who inspire mentors

“Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t want to.” RICHARD BRANSON

There is nothing more beautiful than teaching, coaching and mentoring people. The immense pride and enjoyment you get out of seeing someone grow is supported by the benefits you receive by teaching and coaching. You learn more about yourself, you tend to reflect on your own habits and routines, and you provide an opportunity to learn new ways of doing things.

“People learn the most when teaching others.” PETER DRUCKER

As a CEO or leader you have a huge responsibility to not only prepare your people for their work, but also prepare them for life. More than just teaching skills, you have an obligation to teach them to find and understand their purpose.

Once people understand their purpose, you then have to work with them to connect it with the purpose of the company and the work they are completing. People are the only sustainable thing in an organization or a team.

There is nothing more rewarding than teaching people to become better than ourselves. Many CEO’s and leaders are afraid of the people they work with becoming better skilled, better leaders and better people than they are. It’s all about ego, and they need to realize that way of thinking is hindering the progress of both the company and themselves. As a CEO and leader, you need to learn how to create a mindset where you are proud of people growing above you, rather than being afraid of it.

“Give a man a fish; feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish; feed him for a lifetime.” LAO TZU

How are you leading your people?

Your people are your greatest asset. Take the time to communicate with your people, listen to them, and ask questions that improve their understanding, and bring them closer to the purpose of the company and what they want to achieve in life. Find ways to reflect on how you interact with your people and seek new ways to communicate more effectively. You have a great responsibility!

“If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; If in terms of ten years, plant trees; If in terms of 100 years, teach the people.” CONFUSCIOUS

active CEO Podcast #105 Own Your OWN SPACE

active CEO Podcast Own Your OWN Space Craig Johns High Performance Leadership Expert

By Craig Johns

Own Your OWN SPACE – What is the impact you have on the world through your own unique set of skills and the way you have put them together?

We are all unique and our uniqueness is what allows us to differentiate ourselves and stand out from the crowd. Besides becoming world-class in one skill, talent can come from having a unique stack of skills that no one else has.

Your edge is who you are! What seems normal to you is absolutely amazing to everyone else.

Own Your OWN SPACE

You just need to believe in yourself and have absolute clarity on your vision and then you and your unique set of skills, will become attractive to your target audience.

How can you combine different skills to create value in a way no one else can?

Wouldn’t it be great to become one-of-a-kind in your own league?

Two key aspects that stand out to develop a skill and achieve skill mastery are: you need deliberate and repeatable practice.

7 Steps To Achieve Skill Mastery

Lets look at how you can develop skill mastery.

  • Focus on the task at hand and remove all distractions.
  • Break the skill down into simple tasks or movements.
  • Start out slowly or in slow motion.
  • Gradually increase speed and quality of repetitions
  • Frequent repetitions with a lot of breaks
  • Multiple daily repetitions with limited duration.
  • Visualise through imagining the task or skill being performed with greatness.

Are you ready to Own Your OWN SPACE?
