Heterogeneous teams are better!
Of course, homogeneous teams are more harmonious: Clearly, one argues also less often, because all somehow have the same opinion. The problem with the matter: the performance of the team is at most average.
Because if all work the same, the huge white spot in the spectrum can not be recognized, because it all have it. The complexity of mixed teams increases, the error rate decreases.
The main principles of mixed leadership, colloquially formulated:
Heterogeneous teams are top teams - if, if and insofar as the team members understand and tolerate each other. This understanding and postponing is work. Often this does not happen by itself.
- Understand and agree.
- Stop harboring and degrading the other!
- Use your strengths!
Everyone contributes to the teamwork
So we can not help but do something personally and concretely that we understand each other better.
A tolerable, productive working atmosphere in mixed management teams does not occur by itself. Men and women have to pull together, instead of working as counterparts against each other. And to eliminate the communicative differences, trust is necessary. This must be worked out together!
Get along and grow together!
Show the man / woman that you want to be with him / her. Polemics, irony and cynicism are wonderful, but have nothing to do when it comes to being tolerable. On the other hand, it is important to understand oneself, to tolerate and to question oneself, so that we can trust each other.
The core question of contracting is: Are you in such a way that others can grow in your environment? Or do you rather live with your old prejudices?
Equal right side by side
Previously, for example, there was a woman standing behind every successful man.
In Mixed Leadership women no longer stand behind the men, they step beside them. This changes not only their role, but inevitably from his.
Men have to learn to stand alone
To stay in the picture: He has to learn to stand for himself without anyone backing him. This change is one of the great upheavals of the present.
Having an equal leadership partner can scare men - but also make them more relaxed, brave and stronger than they could ever be with the women behind them. Thus, the men are also the winners of mixed leadership.
Synergy instead of contest
Men can do certain things, women too. The art of mixed Guide lies in not making it a competition, but to form synergy:
But we only get that if we are represented everywhere in about the same number - of course only where it makes sense, not in the delivery room or where extreme physical forces are required.
Competence analysis: Who can?
It is a mistake to believe that everyone in the team has to do everything, but in many other areas we have successfully introduced a division of labor - and I do not mean the classic roll distribution
This includes, for the first time, competence diagnostics: what can be particularly good?
The question is not: Is this a man or what makes the man a man or is it a typical woman, but: What is the Unicum? What skills does he / she have that we need?
Men can learn from women
What is certain is that women can learn a lot from men, but vice versa.
That meetings do not have to be about whose idea is negotiated, but that the best idea is negotiated. That it's not about to drive a company car, but to drive to the service. Some weekends are just weekends.
