What is the best position for you to pivot to gain advantage?
What are your real-world perspectives? What do you need to attend to them?
What tools do you need to apply and focus on contemporary business issues: diversity, multi-generational and multi-cultural subject manner. Her open style and mentoring approach work together for an optimum learning experience for her clients. Author of advanced business concepts like Multi-Dimensional Leadership™, Michelle knows the value of multi-dimensional communication.
Understanding what really must happen?
Define all the moving parts: budget, team members, milestones, deadlines.
Who’s running the project? Have all sign in the Authority chain.
Sample work space: This sampler opens up the possibilities when sharing ideas. It is more effective than raucous brainstorming.
Focus on the Pivotal Thinking™, strategic and critical thinking program. This method encourages transparency, not hierarchy.
All people have equal stature at the table.
Select an immediate issue that is not emotionally charged for your team: (Consider a tertiery complex issue to solve; eg. a supply chain item.)
- Contemporary issues
- Universal healthcare
- A local educational issue
- Ultimately, what is the impact on your business?
Use Baldrige Principles
Overcome the Invisible Factor™ For example, in Michelle’s work with thousands of individuals, one persistent theme rang clearly: people functioned as if they were invisible and were shocked to find, usually at “review” time, all the mistakes and failures that had gathered around them. They were blindsighted.
For example, have your team read Six Thinking Hats by Edward de Bono and then report chapter at a staff meeting.
Fast Company cites a company that has 15 minutes of stand-up comedy begin each staff meeting (with ground rules of course!)
These are ideas to take powerful action. Create several scenarios to encompass different conscious communication styles.
- Influence rather than convince
- Commit rather than coerce
- Reward rather than bribe
- Contribute rather than donate
- Lead rather than follow
- Innovate rather than lock step.
- Use it as an example they approved.
- Use Baldrige elements. As a former Baldrige State Board Examiner, I contribute such expertise to all my clients.
- Legos® and Leadership is our proprietary program to inspire leaders toward creativity and innovation.
Once the ideas are created, th leaders have to explain them to their team! It is enthusiastic learning at its best.
All these are in support of improved executive mind and function development, communication, performance and results. Organizational Description and Culture benefit.
