Projects and Transitions Management
Keep Commitments, right critical situations
1. Human referential
Every company will say they put people first. They know that without the full motivation and cooperation of people, nothing is possible. Nevertheless the alchemy is fragile especially when facing a challenge or a project. At our level we try to put ourselves in the shoes of our counterparts and understand their own referential and motivations. This is a key success factor of management.
Let's be clear about commitment. Being committed requires intelligence and responsibility. On one hand the "plan" cannot be monolithic and targets must also be at a possible reach to be motivating. The art of commitment is to understand what really counts in the eyes of the customer and negociate when the situation requires it. This is the essence of agility to well understand that aspect of the job.
3. Trust and lead by example
We believe without trust no prosperous business can occur over a long time. This is how we base our collaboration. When we enter the game, we give a prior confidence to those we work for, and those we work with. There is no valid reason why people would behave untrustfully. If so it is often because an important element was ignored. In all case the priority is to setup a trust climate because this is the most benefic experience for the company and employees. To achieve that one has to lead by example.
Does leadership of love exist ?
The social networks are full of recommandations how should be a good leader. By the way companies are promoting more a leader than a manager role. Nothing of this is really correct. If one is a leader but does not well organize and manage, does not show example, success is not on the way. On the opposite side if one is only managing but not inspiring the team progression will be poor.
Humans cannot completely disguise to play a perfect role. Sometimes the company interests diverge from people's expectations in terms of personal or collective values, all that which make sense and that you cannot claim but that you have to embody. This is what makes the leader job so interesting.
There is a place "on the green grass" to discuss and understand each other. That is the advantage of being external of a company, we can play mediation and provide a fresh eye to the critical situations, with gentleness.
Even in the toughest challenges, when everyone is striving to achieve the commitments, common understanding and recognition are the ingredients of success. Therefore we should always consider win-win schemes and consider the point of view of our counterpart before providing guidance and experience.
This is not easy to fulfill that promise : so sincere consideration and care are success enablers in this job.
