LEADERSHIP CULTURE LEARNING

​

'You must CONNECT before you CORRECT'

Plenty of leaders I've met seem to believe their job is to 'manage' their team to achieve results. I disagree.

​

In my experience, high-achieving teams usually have a leader who has learned to connect personally AND professionally with each of their team members.

​

The result becomes a group of people who feel seen, understood, and empowered to do their best work.

​

Monty Moran summarises this better than I can in his book Love is Free. Guac is Extra:

​

'Management is about getting people to do something for YOU;

​

Leadership is about getting people to do something for THEMSELVES.'

​

- Monty Moran

​

Why this is topical right now is because I'm in the middle of facilitating a leadership development program for a growing team from Auckland, NZ. The four-step content below is from the program and inspired a useful conversation to find solutions to the connection problem posed at the top of this email:

​

In short, my leadership culture learning for you this week is:

You must CONNECT before you CORRECT' - Tristan White

TEAM CULTURE TOOL

'The rhythm is more important than the meeting'

If you believe that your team culture is important, then one of the most important things I believe you can do is to commit to an energetic and consistent meeting rhythm.

​

I am NOT talking about meetings for the sake of meetings.

​

Based on the learnings of Verne Harnish in his book, Scaling Up, a connected team has a meaningful rhythm of daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual meetings.

​

Every meeting has a purpose AND everyone knows that purpose.
