Firm Beliefs Ideas and Techniques May 2014

  1. 1. Welcome to Firm Beliefs’ Ideas and Techniques Focus May 2014 We’ve all been busy. 10 examples of the simple things we all sometimes forget. All 10 provided by clients – the things they forgot last month!
  2. 2. I forgot – to set sensible expectations I set my team so many goals that they felt failures when they didn’t succeed in them all. From now on, realism and the practicalities of the situation will stop me doing the same again.
  3. 3. I forgot – to question a potential employee about his decision to come to us. Now we have a bad recruit. Turned out he came to us because of a combination of: Short term career move Didn’t do his research properly (his expectations of his role were wrong) Just for the money… Was running away from his old job and not towards our job.
  4. 4. I forgot – to question the reason for every meeting I attended Sometimes you have to ask: 1. What is it expected to achieve? 2. Is it the best way of achieving that? 3. Am I needed? 4. What is the track record of this type of meeting with these people in it?
  5. 5. I forgot – what it’s like to be at the bottom of the rung I remember my first boss never helped me, never taught me, nor explained things to me, never let me make mistakes, nor gave me hope that I could succeed, never encouraged me. I had a feeling I was becoming the same…
  6. 6. I forgot – that as a new leader, I couldn’t just stop and think ‘There – that’s it now. I’ve made it. Nothing else in me to develop.’ I forgot that I still need to focus on: Developing new skills Developing my judgement Developing my networks both internal and external Basically I forgot that this is the just the beginning – again!
  7. 7. I forgot – at some stage you have to stop endlessly prepping… And just take a punt!
  8. 8. I forgot – perspective… Get a life outside work Watch a squirrel. Go for a walk. See a movie. Take up a hobby. Anything – to put work into perspective
  9. 9. I forgot – to keep going You will get there in the end… My job as CEO is to have, and demonstrate, stamina, focus and commitment.
  10. 10. I forgot – to show faith in my team’s abilities I realised how often I ended a sentence with ‘if you can’. Of course they can!
  11. 11. I forgot – to ask my team what I forget the most often! They were actually very kind… But most often, apparently, I forget that I am human too and so am allowed to forget things…
