Manage well - how does it work?
Taking your time, being relaxed, looking through something in peace, getting involved with something, not being available all the time ... Most managers and executives would say "this is not possible".
We analyze this “does not work” in more detail. Usually the meaning is somewhere else. Mostly this is a view or opinion that has arisen from the dynamic of “everything and that immediately”. We take a closer look at Essential Leadership.
Busyness is not a status symbol
The confusion that takes place here is that many believe that demonstrating constant activity, busyness and being used would give an indication of their importance in the system. There is more about this misconception in the article “Absence as a status symbol”.
Dynamics arise when many do the same. Dynamics are very similar to viruses: they are contagious! This is exactly where the Essential Leader comes in - it develops immunity.
Dynamics become values, values become norms
Dynamics have the characteristic of becoming values, and values often become norms. Anyone who breaks out here is considered exotic and no longer belongs to it.
For the essential leader, much more important than the analysis and diagnosis of whether something works or not: does one thing Sense or not.
Fads and trends are not important
Integrating an exam for sense is one of the essential value-adding tasks of the Essential Leader. He selects exactly what is meaningful and effective in the sense of the whole and guides and leads accordingly.
Fads and trends are not important to him. He even dares to question her clearly. Values and meaning are an essential part of the power that a company can provide for its managers and employees.
Courage to swim against the tide
To convey values and meaning credibly as a resource for performance is not to be underestimated. This includes trusting in these values and living them above all else.
Not participating in the trend requires courage and positioning against a mainstream. The resources that are available in terms of energy and subsequently money are considerable.
Awareness of the Wessigen
The essential leader “dares” to demand this against the trend permanently, creating awareness of what is really essential and a place to which the participants will return with joy over time.
Five points for the “meeting culture” alone are a cornucopia of resources:
- Punctuality and discipline
- No phone calls
- No eMails
- focus on the essentials
- Physical and mental presence
Wanted: Manager with reflexion!
Since the environment usually remembers it better than we do, the Essential Leader needs a high level of reflection first. His managers and employees have the confidence to make him aware of things that he “seems to have forgotten”. The Essential Leader encourages this trust.
Critical reflections have no negative consequences and offer an excellent learning process for self-awareness. Self-perception we can learn. Executives are very often target-oriented in the outside. However, they rarely look into processes and systems.
Who can reflect is happier!
Self-perception is a very crucial element in the production of credibility in the environment. A reflected and reflective leader is perceived much more authentically, and the joy and willingness to follow him increases exponentially.
Employees who are allowed to reflect are happier. This promotes emotional commitment to the business, the most important asset to healthy and sustainable business success, according to the Gallup Engagement Index.
