As the pandemic first hit, we saw many leaders adopt a more directive style, as the context demanded quick action and difficult decisions. Now, it is important to return to a more democratic, visionary and coaching style in order to engage and (re-) motivate your team. How do you do this? By playing at your highest strategic level, namely through your Unique Strategic Contribution! We discuss this with Patricia Gauthier to find out when she made the "swift" shift in her mindset - her leadership style - and what the impact was!
Have you ever heard of social styles? They allow us to learn about our own preferences as well as those of our colleagues and employees. How we communicate, perceive, appreciate, " assimilate " and react to information. Adjusting and adapting our communications to achieve the desired impact is a powerful tool! Communicating efficiently is crucial, especially since we regularly have to do so remotely. What is the key according to Eve Laurier, General Manager at Edelman Montréal? Authenticity is where it all starts!
In the traditional leadership model, expertise and knowledge are valued requiring us to use our heads most. However, this model does not fully meet the needs of organizations, especially in today's ever-changing, uncertain and complex environment! So, how do we move to a more current model that enables organizations and teams to achieve their goals? A model that generates mobilization, commitment, involvement and integrates a more interactive vision? We welcome you to discover leading with head, heart and gut!
As leaders we must first start by developing ourselves in order to grow our team and organization. The key to this development, according to Natalie Brown, is to step out of your comfort zone. Continually evolve because one must adapt and learn new things! And for our team to succeed, we have to create the climate that allows it. That's when the results kick in!
As a manager, the more you solidify our team’s trust, the less individual needs arise. More people will find their place within the team dynamic by recognizing their own value and that of other people and the team. The Team Truth will be enforced and decisions will be easier to make. So the question is: How can a leader really make a difference in developing that trust climate? This is what we would talk about in this episode with Manon Brouillette.
Why is one team better than another? How does its leader manage to engage and nurture their team? In this first episode, we discuss the basics of our 5 step model (5C) to empower teams. We will meet with Paul Lirette, President of GSK Japan, to discuss his method for transforming a culture and achieving goals in each leadership role he has been given in markets around the world.
