Leadership Interview

A while back I was interviewed by one of my coachees  on Leadership.  I would like to share with you the interview. 🙂

  1. How do you model the way?  Answer:  By leading by example.  Sharing your vision and expectation.  Discussing goals with staff and having them set goals for themselves.
  2. How do you inspire a vision? Answer:  Sharing your vision consistently, constantly and the progress of the vision.
  3. Do you or have you challenged the process? In what way? Answer:  Many times, presenting the challenge in a professional way and the process with management, staff and having a solution for a better way.  Asking to implement it and why.  Taking the risk and being responsible for it if it fails.  Learn from your mistakes and always keep trying to improve.
  4. How do you enable other to act?  Answer: Communicating, coaching and leading by example.  Networking and showing the way.
  5. How do you or do you encourage the heart of your followers? Building heart felt relationships is the key to building trust and followers.  Be honest and open and letting others be open and honest even when you don’t like what is being said.  Self-reflection and others sharing self-reflection.  It takes time but it is worth the investment.
  6. How do you effectively communicate? Answer:  Asking questions, reflecting what was said and making sure you are really listened and understood what was said.
  7. Is it difficult to create a motivational environment? Answer:  Yes and no.  It depends on the environment and what behaviors that have been acceptable.  Everything takes time and investment.  Praising people when they do a good job.  Coaching them when improvement is needed.  Being honest and open about things addressing concerns and sharing accomplishments.
  8. How do you manage performance? Answer:  I motivate within.  I have coaches and mentors in areas of where I need to improve.  They help me with self-reflection and to be motivated in areas that are challenging and hold me accountable for the goals I set.
  9. How do you deal with underperformance? What are the special techniques you use?  Answer:  Coaching is so powerful.  Discussing with the employee the areas they are underperforming and coaching towards solutions to succeed.  Setting up goals and ways to succeed.  One on one meetings weekly to discuss progress.  What is working what is not.  Try different ways of communications and training until they find what clicks.
  10. How do you know when it is your duty to act? Answer:  When someone is struggling, complacent, lacking motivation, bad attitude towards job or others.  It is time to find out what is causing it.  Is it time to give them a new project, some additional training or setting new  goals.  Asking questions  at the one on one session helps with a plan of action.  I really enjoyed the questions she asked me and the interview.  My wish is this interview inspired you in your daily walk as a Leader. ~ Patti 🙂

On the EDGE

On the EDGE

Are you on the edge looking down the cliff of disaster?  Is there something you are doing or feeling that is not right for you which may hurt you or others and you need to stop?  Are you in a dead end job and you just can’t take it anymore and you are doing nothing to change your situation?  Are you hanging out with people who are dragging you down instead of encouraging you to pursue your goals and aspirations?  Do you constantly complain to friends and family about your situation but don’t take any steps to change it?

Why do we do these things to ourselves instead of stopping and self-reflecting “What is making me so unhappy” and staying in these conditions?

Do you think it is time to look at what is making you miserable and fix it?

Change the situation and make life better.

What is holding you back and you need to get rid of?

How will you change this situation?

Life is so much better if you shift your mindset.

What about hiring a coach to assist you in figuring out what is dragging you down and get you off the edge of that cliff.  Isn’t it time to  start looking up at the sky with meaning, purpose and happiness?

Having someone support, encourage and hold you accountable is the first step to change.  What are you waiting for? ~ Patti

Staying calm and patient when stuck in the mud!

Stuck in the mud

Life is full of challenges and mishaps.  I was recently on a camping trip with friends.  My friend’s camper got stuck in the mud.  It had been raining and the ground was soft, slippery and muddy.  My friend was so patient and calm.  It was amazing.  This attitude is hard to come by for many.

He didn’t scream or cuss.  He remained optimistic he was going to get the camper out of the mud.  The harder he tried to move the camper the farther it would slide and sink into the mud.  He worked for hours non-stop with the camper and it didn’t come out.

The next day we drove into town and bought some straps to pull the camper out of the mud.  There were some bad things that happened to his camper because it got stuck in the mud.  A broken tail light, jack, shovel but in the end everything worked out and his cool demeanor was still in tact.

I wish I could be more like him in times of distress and turmoil; when I lose my temper instead of staying calm and positive.  He is a wonderful example of what I’m continually working towards.  Life is an adventure where are you taking yours?~ Patti 🙂

Questions to ponder for self-reflection:

Was there a time in your life that you wished you had stayed calm and positive?

What was the outcome?

What was the lesson you learned?

How would you handle the situation now?
