THE ENDIn October 2014, I handed over my responsibilities to my team.
WHAT HAVE I LEARNED?
My 5 biggest takeaways
LESSON #1"Rule your mind or it will rule you."
FIRST STEPREALISATION THAT YOU ARE A HUMAN
15 33If you dont think this applies to you GO SEE A DOCTOR!
MANAGING SELFBEFORE LEADING
Cant manage people when you are troubled. You
have to know where you are mentally
You cant be self aware if you never spend time on it
You cant fix yourself alone
SOLUTIONSMAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF
FIND A COACH
LESSON #2It's useful to go out of this world and see it from the perspective of another one.
- Terry Pratchett
OUR OWN WORLDSTHERE ARE NO FACTS JUST OUR PERCEPTIONS OF IT
SOLUTION TO MAKE RIGHT DECISIONS PERSPECTIVE
OFFICES ARE WHERE PERSPECTIVE DIES!
EVERYONE BRIGNS YOU THEIR PERCEPTION
PERSPECTIVEWHERE TO FIND IT?
LESSON #3It is a sign of strenght, not weakness to admit that you dont have all the answers.
- John Lougbrane
LESSON #4It is mutual trust, even more than mutual interest that holds human associations together.
- H. L. Mencken
MOTIVATION IN STRESS
TRUST IS WHY YOUR BEST PEOPLE ARE
TRUST AND FEAR ARE THE REASONS WHY PEOPLE WORK FOR
FEAR IS WHAT MOTIVATES WEAK
LEADERSHIP IN STRESS
WE TEND TO TRUST LESS
WEAK PEOPLE ARE GLAD TO HAND OVER
GOOD PEOPLE GET DETACHED
The more stressful the situation the MORE you have to trust your people!
They will feel empowered and repay you with fast and good decisions.
ACT AGAINST THE NATURE
LESSON #5Of all strategies, knowing when to quit might be the best.
- Chineese Proverb
QUITTING We are never thought when to quit We are though histories of heroes who fought till the end
27 33SURVIVE NOMATHER WHAT
YOU ARE NOT HELPING YOUR TEAM IF YOU TRY TO BE A HERO
You should realize you are not in shape to play, when: You cant be passionate about the future You cant motivate anymore
YOU ARE A LEADER WHEN YOU MAKE A RIGHT DECISION TAKE THE INJURED
PLAYER OUT OF THE GAME
YOU NEED TO HAVE A GAME READY TEAM!
A pipeline of people who: Care about the company Have been prepared for the role Will not be rejected by their peers
We are human need to spend time on ourselves1
The more trouble the more perspective needed make sure you know what give you that2The tougher the times, the more important trust is.3Learn to say I dont know, lets figure it out4
Sometimes putting yourself out of the game is the best you can do!5
SO WHY AM I HERE AGAIN?
DIAMONDS ARE MADE
There is no other place right know which would create more
battle tested talents!
