Name, organisation. role and ..if you want
Why you are here? Or what you can share / what you would like
Based on True North by Bill George, Harvard professor and CEO of Medtronic – 125 interviews – mainly CEOs and vice p presidents of multi billion dollar corporations
Valid at all levels of leadership
Finding your sense of purpose in life – maslows hierarchy of needs
Inauthentic - Leaving a meeting grumbling, not doing what you know is right
I see it everywhere I go – managers not willing to admit their mistakes, blaming everyone but themselves and then 3 months later they’re fired, organisations who profess to value customer service above all else but who start every meeting discussing the bottom line.
Howard Shultz – Starbucks – father delivery driver – lost job, health insurance, first american company to provide access to health coverage for employees 20 hrs a week
Simon Biltcliffe - miners strike – power for good
Good news for those of us who are older – richer, happier
Crucible - death of loved one, illness, feedback, financial difficulty, ethical dilemma
Integrity - not true to values – followers lose confidence Heart - courage, compassion, empathy, passion Relationships – strong, accessible, trust and openness, empower others – will breed commitment and loyalty Discipline - High standards and accountability for outcomes, admitting mistakes No purpose – at mercy of egos and narcissistic vulnerabilities
Simon biltcliffe – authentic
Imposters not self aware, confident – machievellian – cunning and aggression, not empower people “If you want to test a man, give him absolute power” Abraham Lincoln Rationalisers – lose sight of values – blame external forces, all good on surface but trade long term for short term Glory seekers – trapped by need for materials, power, extrinsic motivations, praise, acclaim of external world – inside feel empty Loners - not introverts but do not have trusting relationships, no feedback, no support, do not listen. No wise counsel – make mistakes Shooting stars – careers - burn out - no time for family, friends, out of balance
All in it for themselves
Could be positive but more likely a crucible
Servant style leadership
Self awareness- -EQ – most important capability for leaders say 75 members of Stamford university Business Advisory Council - confidence, role, connect, complimentary skills – most leaders no time
Values – personal - integrity, easy to live by values and principles until they are tested. Lose sight and you go the way of enron, bankers fixing interest rates
Understand values before crisis better placed to fond your way through
Ethics - New York Times test
Motivations – balance instrinsic and extrinsic motivations - find out what you are good at and what you like to do - passion and purpose – Amy’s GCSEs Warren Bennis – writing researching, teaching - students
Support team – one person completely vulnerable and open with - feedback .personal board of directors – mentors, family
Integrated life – balance professional and personal lives – no good skewed, stress, professional, personal, social and family
Crucible, or True North Groups – leaders who meet regularly, discuss values, challenges, ethical dilemmas, personal and professional lives – support group
