We grow old by deserting our ideals. People want to be appreciated and want their work to be acknowledged. People want to taste success, and when they do, they automatically become more motivated and more self-confident, which in turn engenders initiative and innovation.
No one wants to look stupid or fail on their job. The challenge for leaders is how to create situations where people are not afraid to try, where people can savour success to build up their self-confidence, and where people can safely learn from their mistakes.
Psychological safety The art of getting things one in situations of ambiguity and uncertainty: The importance to have the courage to try new things and the discernment to cut losses when things do not work out.
Opportunities are for us to learn and to be the best we each can be. But with opportunities come obligations: In addition, anything less than doing the best that we can and being the best that we can be would be less than fair to ourselves and those around us.
The worst thing you can do to your boss and yourself is to surprise your boss with bad news.
It is always best for your boss to hear the bad news from you first. Do not allow your ego and fear to impede your capacity to learn, as well as your willingness to try new things.
It is foolhardy for any boss to empower a person who is either not competent enough to know that things are going wrong, or honest and humble enough to admit that things are going wrong.
The job of staff is to analyse and come up with the best answer within the bounds of their knowledge and experience. Worst of all, they would be developing staff who do not think independently, but are instead always second-guessing their bosses.
This is how organisations lose imagination, initiative, and innovative staff by ignoring their brains and undermining their courage.
We should not always do what we are asked to do. We should always ask, "What am I doing this for? Think of a better way to do it. Think also of completely different things to do that are useful, sensible, and effective. Scenario-planning helps an organisation think about a future that is uncertain and unpredictable.
Everyone becomes attuned and sensitised to the signals of change, and we learn to think with a contingency mind-set so we may be able to react quickly when the need arises.
A public service will keep on going even with mediocre leadership, but if it aspires to be first class, it requires superior leadership. Public Communications is no longer solely the purview of the Corporate Communications department, as officers at all levels make up the voice, character, and personality of the organisation.
It does not matter what policy paper has been written, what is communicated to the audience is the intention of the policy so far as the audience is concerned.
Communicate wrongly or inadequately and all the misreading and unintended distrust cannot be blamed on the audience. What the public sees or perceives of the implementation defines the policy in their mind.
Supervisors must help make it interesting and worthwhile. But it is our attitude that will make the journey either fun or boring. By teaching moral education without religion, the need for personal example by the teacher is very great, and his teaching fails when students do not see the teaching to be true for his life.
If "Values of Identity addresses the question: Resistance to change is normal. In fact, we should worry if we do not get resistance, because it either means that people are not taking the change seriously, or they think we will give upe asily and so there is no need for them to apply themselves.
In other words, they believe they can outlast our ideas or outlast us. Promotion must always be an expectation of the probability of high performance at the next higher level. The right reward for high performance is a good bonus, not a promotion. Dee Hock, Founder of Visa on promotion: Hire and promote first on the basis of integrity; second, motivation; third, capacity; fourth, understanding; fifth, knowledge; and last and least, experience.
Without integrity, motivation is dangerous; without motivation, capacity is impotent; without capacity, understanding is limited; without understanding, knowledge is meaningless; without knowledge, experience is blind.In The Leader, The Teacher and You, Lim puts forth a fresh take on the notion of leadership as other-centered, with the focus on enabling others to be the best they can be/5(4).
