Employee motivation for managers: Leadership roles

Everyone has their role and can change. This is also true for you. You also play the controller or organizer from time to time, have to initiate processes in other situations and in others to stabilize your mood.

leadership roles

Lion tamer or lead wolf?

Systemic thinking gives us the opportunity to divide our personality into inner roles. Possible internal parts can be:

  • Lion tamer, who speaks a machismo.
  • Employee, responsible to the organization or to one's own Manager.
  • Conflict mediator / facilitator / mediator.
  • Manager, who structures the work of others.
  • Inspector who supervises the work of others.
  • Employee-Coachwho assists employees with difficult tasks.
  • Team developer who does the Team promotes and conflicts arbitrates.
  • Leitwolf, who shows where it goes long.
  • Who is expert in the field and can be asked for advice.
  • Responsible, who represents the decisions of his team to the outside.

When is which role useful?

In one situation it does Senseto play the visionary to advance an idea. In another situation, the controller is asked. All of these are parts of you that should be used in the right amount.

Well-dosed means: No visionary, checker, tamer, leader or coach should act on their own. He needs a strong ego, a moderator in the background who keeps an overview and determines when which role makes sense.

Brain Teaser

Think about what roles you should fill out on a daily basis. Now draw a circle and divide it into corresponding proportions, depending on how often you take which role to what percentage:

  • What roles are more important to you, which less?
  • What is the reason?
  • In which roles do you have the most successes?
  • Which roles are the easiest?
  • Would you like to expand a certain role or shrink another?
  • How could you achieve this?

From nail painters and fish eaters

The question arises: How do I get so-called insulted liver sausages and other tragic figures on board? How do I deal with employees who “cannot do anything because they have painted their nails” (quote from a seminar participant)?

In the context of the personal role, the question also arises where one's own limits lie. You too are sure to have one or the other employee who makes you feel like he's going to get this> Go! Motivate me! <- carry virus in itself.

That's how you motivate sleepyheads

What do I do with employees who believe that after the last change in the business process, have all the rights of the world to get the day just round, with a look as if a nonsense would eat a surströmming?

Surstromming is fermented Swedish fish that gives off an unbearable odor. Wikipedia writes about this: “In Germany at Christmas 1981, a tenant sprayed Surstromming broth in the stairwell and in the garden. She was terminated without notice. The Cologne Regional Court confirmed that Terminationafter a can of Surstromming was opened at the hearing. "

Attention black Peter

Many social and public leaders can sing a song of such colleagues. But in other industries there is a black Peter here and there, which does not necessarily make it easier for you to lead and motivate.

So that you do not misunderstand me: 70 to 80 percent of the employees are usually highly to very highly motivated. You have obviously chosen the right job and you just need the right conditions to get started or make a good job. But there are also the others.
