Great day with the team in Grange Hall
“You are always responsible for the way you act….no matter how you feel.”
It is so easy to fly off the handle….but if you do…. how do you think you look in the eyes of your team….easy to answer that one!!
“I’ve learned that people forget what you say and do….but never forget how you make them feel..”
This is all about the senses that make us all tick……try and look at the impact you are having on your people by the way you ask them to do and then asking them how they feel about your style…..can really help to open your eyes.
What is worse….Training people and they leave or not training them and they stay?..!!
If they do leave you need to find out why and take steps to improve your process.
If you don’t train them they will never fulfil what you need them to do….and think of the COST to you and your business..!!
” You are only as strong as your weakest link”
Every member of your team has an equally important role to play…..how often are you frustrated when one of those links fail…..who are you going to blame..?….or could you have seen it coming..?…do you really know your team capability..?…you need to…Brian&Bob
“If you don’t know where you are going, how will you know when you get there”
So often in our careers we came across teams that were running blind, not really knowing what they need to do, going through the motions, not knowing if they were delivering the goals or not……Does your team know exactly what the end result is and how they are expected to achieve it…..you know…. this is down to you……Brian&Bob
“I’m Up……Get the Ladder Up!”
You must have seen this….the selfish leader who only cares about his bit of the action…..must win at all cost….doesn’t care about the team…a prima donna……not you of course..?..!..Brian&Bob
“The first rule of Leadership….it’s your Fault!”
Too many times we have seen managers blaming others for mistakes that they made and that were caused by poor delegation or abdication……does this happen in your business….
Don’t let them play pass the parcel of blame…..You are the accountable one….Brian&Bob
“It’s not what you say, It’s the way you say it!”
How often are your team uplifted by what you ask them to do or are they grudgingly accepting it and just doing enough to get by….Do you plan the content and think of the impact you will have…..you only have one chance to get it right…..Brian&Bob
“You cannot change the direction of the wind, but you can adjust your sails to get there”
How appropriate and relevant is the above statement to your business?.
Just stop and think about it , how often in the year do you review your performance against the goals you set at the start of the year and adapt your plan to ensure you achieve what you want or are you being blown along by the wind?……Brian&Bob
“ Be the mentor…. you wish you had…!!”
We like to look back and reflect on hindsight as being a wonderful thing….Do you fulfil your role today the way you hoped it would have been for you….Brian&Bob
“ Compliment people…..
Amplify their strengths…..
Not their weaknesses…..!!”
All too often it’s their weakness we focus on……. a mistake we all need to watch out for..!!…Brian&Bob
“ Management is doing things right… ….Leadership is doing…the right things….!!”
Do you see the difference?…..if you can you are on the right track…worth asking yourself the question..….Brian&Bob
“ You don’t lose if you get knocked down….You lose if you stay down..!!”
Many of us understand this is the difference between winners and losers………..
it’s their tenacity and never give up attitude….
Do you have these great qualities?……. Brian&Bob
“ To lead people…..you need to walk…..behind them..!!”
We don’t always need to lead from the front…..you learn great things by watching, coaching and supporting from the back….Brian&Bob
“Sometimes..….the journey is as important as…..the destination..!!”
Often the learning experience….the never giving up……is overlooked with a lack of understanding…..when in fact it is the fuel you need….to get to the end goal…..worth reflecting on…..Brian&Bob
“A clear vision is…. who we are…..where we are going….. and how we will get there…!!”
Any successful leader keeps the goal as simple as this….people understand and buy in….never over complicate it….or confusion will reign….Brian&Bob
“ You are what you do…….not what you say you will do..!!”
As simple as that statement is, we have seen many leaders behave as though it doesn’t apply to them……. If you don’t want to destroy your company culture, do not make that mistake yourself…!!..Brian&Bob
