Mission statements for great companies

Monday, July 17th, 2006

Do you need a new mission statement?

You have two choices:

  1. You could employ a highly skilled facilitator (like me :) ) to help you and your team generate something meaningful and profound that offers true guidance and direction as you grow and develop, or
  2. you could do it on the cheap using the Dilbert Mission Satement Generator.

Actually come to think of it I think I’ve seen some companies who took the second option…

A leadership style that works

Monday, July 3rd, 2006

Some managers just don’t seem to be able to resist getting involved or giving advice, even when it’s not really needed or wanted. It’s a counterproductive leadership style that screams lack of trust.

One of the most empowering things you can do as a leader is provide your people with the space to manage their own priorities.

After you have clarified priorities and responsibilities with your people, your next priority should be to ensure they have all the skills and resources necessary, and then leave them to it.

Demonstrate trust and you’ll achieve a leadership style that works much more effectively.

For more great ideas on how to develop your leadership skills join us in the Leadership Coaching Club which starts in mid September.
