Leadership: Evaluating the facts
The clues are found in the problem.
No matter who we are once we have taken on the role of leader we assume all the problems of running the section, team or organisation. When we work within a small enterprise, the complex skills needed to be a leader are exaggerated due to the limited number of minds to share the dilemma.
So, how do we become problem solvers? How do we evaluate the facts when he mastermind is limited, and sometimes limited to one mind? In addition, understanding that there are limited resources how do we find the clues in the midst of the dilemma?
If we start first with the question, ‘how can this situation serve us?’ we put ourselves in a resourceful state. Simply changing the way we see a situation reveals alternative possibilities, which are options, or choices from which decisions can be made.
Other questions should be ‘what meaning am I taking from this dilemma?’ Often when we face dilemmas we start with statements such as ‘it only happens to me’ or ‘I knew I should never have agreed to that’ or worse still, ‘I’m useless at this. I’d better give up’.
Finally we need to understand how we are behaving in trying to achieve our goal. It is said that ‘you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar’, in other words when things get hard do we get pushy, putting other people under stress? Or, do we become present and release ourselves from any sense of panic or guilt by examining whether our approach needs adjustment.
