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 your own boss.
- Conflict mediator / facilitator / mediator.
- Manager, who structures the work of others.
- Inspector who supervises the work of others.
- Employee coach who assists employees in difficult tasks.
- Team developer, the Team promotes and resolves conflicts.
- 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 makes sense to play the visionary to advance an idea. In another situation the controller is required. All of these are parts of you that should be used well.
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.
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
This raises the question: How do I bring so-called offended liver sausages and other tragic figures on board? How do I deal with female employees who "just can not 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?
Surströmming is fermented Swedish fish emanating an unbearable odor. Wikipedia writes: "In Germany 1981 splashed a tenant in the stairwell and in the garden Surströmmingbrühe for Christmas. She was terminated without notice. The district court of Cologne confirmed the termination after a can Surströmming 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.
