LEADERSHIP IN TODAY’S WORLD
Leadership today is really a whole new ball of wax. As far as I know, this is the first time in history that we are dealing with four different generations in our workforce. The management strategies that were successful in the past just don’t work anymore. Even the time honored traditions of the rah-rah motivational sessions are met with an apathetic reaction in the group and can actually be a demotivator in attempting to meet goals.

Now, more than ever, clear leadership principles are vital to success in our organizations. Some of these principles are: vision, integrity, coaching, team participation, and honesty from the top down. These are the tools that are working in the more advanced organizations of today. For some groups this requires a cultural change in the way they operate.

Motivation

It’s quite surprising how many times I am asked by others: how do I motivate my team/company/employees/family /etc? It’s even more surprising how they then react to my answer which is: you can’t motivate anyone except yourself. People must be motivated by their own inner desires, wants and values. You cannot do it for them or to them.

Psychologists will tell you that there are three types of motivation.

  1. Fear motivation (do it or else ).
  2. Incentive motivation (do it and I’ll give you something/a reward).
  3. Personal or internal motivation (I do it because I want to and it is of benefit to me).

The first two work in the short term and then lose their impact over the long term. It’s only the long term thinking that creates cohesion in a group and the positive cooperation and growth that organizations are looking for in today’s world. People do what they want to do and are committed to outcomes they can relate to ( and own) and then participate in.

I’m sure you are aware that the old rah-rah-stand-on-your-chair-and-scream motivation-session doesn’t produce a lasting impact within your organization any more. People are burned out on this type of hype and are looking for grounded more advanced leadership styles that can give them the tools and inspiration to expand as human beings and contributors to the Universe. We call this the Champagne effect: all bubbly and nice when it is first opened but two or three days later it has lost it’s flavor and bubbly and we go back to the old way of doing things.

The old world conversation about motivation means to literally “move people to action” or cause people to do what we want them to do. Our new world of leadership requires “Inspiration” which means to inspire people toward the creation of new ideas and ways of doing things to accomplish the mission and goals of the organization as well as the individual.

“Inspiration” looked at literally means to breathe life (or Spirit) into them. This becomes the beginning of creating Spiritual Awareness in what we do and accomplish and contributing to a Vision and goals that drive an organization to excellence.


How do you do this? It starts with a series of simple conversations about the principles of 21st century leadership that we can share with your organization.
