Last month I was able to spend 90 minutes with a group of leaders from across the country to walk through my book and help them to experience the content. I did this through polling them and equipping them with two tools they could take back and start using the next day. I asked them the following questions:
- How effective are your business leaders in building strong relationships with new people during the on-boarding process?
- In your organization – What do you see most often from your leaders – Love or Fear?
- What part of the RESISTANCE does your leader manage MOST effectively?
- What part of the RESISTANCE does your leader manage LEAST effectively?
- How would I score my EGO? (1=not enough, 5=just enough, 10=too much)
- How often are performance conversations (1 on 1) happening in your organization?
A few observations from me:
- It is nice to see more LOVE than FEAR in the workplace. I still wonder what those were experiencing that answered 4. I am thinking there is still too much FEAR.
- The one part of OBN leadership that is being managed most effectively is They think they are . . . Self-awareness is so important in leadership, and being able to actively manage it is critical. I am glad to see that is #1.
- Stress induced tunnel vision is being managed least effectively. Hmmm . . . . .
- How would I score my ego? Way too many 10’s!
- Leaders are not being effective often enough at building strong relationships with new people. This concerns me, unless I am recruiting and trying to steal talent from someone else, then I am glad because people are making it easy.
Here are the results – so take a look.
If you are looking for a speaker let me know. My favorite score is the 81% engagement of the people that were there.
