I was so inspired by the feedback on my simple hints on a few things to do to bring the happiness of vacation to work. So, here’s some more: I’ll try and limit myself to bring out only ONE area each from the LUCK Concept:
L – for Lean Leadership:
Try and use the “No Blame” philosophy. What ever happens – I prefer action to ignorance. This is sometimes misinterpreted as “supporting sabotage” – but nothing is more distant. By accepting misstakes we vaccinate our people with trust: trust to act. Trust to think. And the team to correct if needed. But never hiding misstakes in fear of “getting caught”. By finding faults – we can improve even more.
U – Unifying Communications:
Sharing what’s happening. Actions in organizations sometimes fall into “actions in islands”. We need to know that more are doing the same, and know of their experiences. – channels being the intranet, microblogs that travels, pictures, videos (preferably streaming, to be shared)
C – Coaching Leadership:
Learning to SEE (in Lean) what actions and behaviours that create our results. Excel in releasing suitable feedback to support your staff – as well as excel in receiving it.
K – Cognitive reactions in this internetified times:
How to avoid fast response defensive, flight and attack reactions. Primarily as they block the responsible dialog and results.
