Leadership Intel from NZIML: 26 April 2017

Wednesday, April 26, 2017   Posted in: Newsletters By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, Training, leadership, management

Update on the Emerging Leaders Programme

The second workshop in the Emerging Leaders Programme was held at Leadership House last week. The focus of this workshop is Delegation and Communication. Pictured below are some work groups discussing the right (and wrong) way to delegate. The final workshop will be held in June and will culminate in a graduation event.

Series 2 places are still available and the programme will run from July through to November.

City Care demonstrates the importance of valuing staff and encouraging growth

NZIML recently partnered with City Care and industry training organisation Skills, to create and deliver a bespoke leadership programme resulting in nationally recognised qualifications for mid-level and up-and-coming leaders.

The three-way partnership has provided busy, practical managers with the tools to learn more about themselves as leaders, learn how to get the best from working with their teams, and enhance productivity and performance in the workplace.

Read the full story about NZIML training for City Care staff.

Can you teach courage?

Courage: the word in itself speaks volumes in terms of having your say or stepping forward into the unknown. A five year old may have the kind of courage that scares us as a parent, a fifteen year old may have the kind of courage that leads them to act without thinking, and a twenty-five year old may have lost some of their courage without knowing why.

In our place of work we need to leverage leadership courage without there always being a title to back it up. In addition to courage it is about tools and techniques that demonstrate your authenticity, insight and trust.

Tips for developing leadership courage:

  • Be clear about what you are trying to achieve;
  • Be sure you know how to listen, and listen first;
  • Be mindful of your environment before you embark on a conversation;
  • Be honest, not accusing; and
  • Leave your ego at the door and acknowledge your own fears.

Read a good article on engaging in a courageous conversation shared by Forbes in November 2013.

Explore leadership courage further at a Courageous Conversations workshop.

Are you a giver or a taker?

Organisational Psychologist Adam Grant.This is such a great TedTalk from Organisational Psychologist Adam Grant. Adam offers simple strategies to promote a culture of generosity and keep self-serving employees from taking more than their share.

Discovering if you are an agreeable-taker or a disagreeable-giver may give you an insight into how you engage in your place of work.

Here are the three strategies:

  1. Protect givers from burnout.
  2. Encourage help-seeking.
  3. Get the right people on the bus.

Find out more about the power of self-awareness and good company culture.

What are you reading?

As the nights draw in and we say farewell to the delights of long summer days it is often the time to reach for a good book.

Our recommendation is "The ONE Thing: The surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results" by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan.

"The One Thing" explains the success habit to overcome the six lies that block our success, beat the seven thieves that steal time, and leverage the laws of purpose, priority, and productivity.

Our key insights from this book:

  • Do less for more effect instead of doing more things with side effects.
  • Discipline and habit intersect.
  • It takes 66 days to create a habit.
  • Purpose without priority is powerless.
  • Your environment must support your goals.

How to take the practical approach:

  • Reserve hours of non-interrupted time in your work day to do only ONE thing.
  • Sometimes it is OK to say “no”.
  • Determine my “System”.
