You will know as an accomplished executive and leader that this complex skill of engaging another person in the action of something you ultimately have a responsibility for is perhaps the hardest to acquire and least understood of all human skills. For this is the one which you have the greatest to lose if it fails, yet to achieve success you have to be completely unattached to the result of the actions being taken. In other words leading people through force and control will have the least rewards for manager and employees; yet understanding how to communicate and provide support will change with each person depending on their personality type, perspectives and value’s system.
To get the best results for you and your employees, you have to create 100% ownership of everyone’s failures and 0% ownership of all successes achieved throughout the company.
As your coach I will encourage the continuation of all of these attributes that can be learnt or enhanced, and support of understanding your employees can be achieved through values elicitation, listening, questioning, mindset training and the use of neuroscientific tools to understand behaviour, increase team alignment and improve employee engagement.
Ultimately when you are this accountable for company engagement you create a team who not only are related to their work as if it is their own personal performance, but you create individuals engaged in a company’s success.
