We all make mistakes all the time. Or to put it another way: we do things that do not optimally advance us and others, but hinder us in some way.
This is quite normal so far. However, there are various mistakes in everyday leadership that most people are not even aware of, but which nevertheless have a strong negative effect.
Since the first step to any positive change is always the awareness of today's deficits and mistakes, I have exactly this as a topic in my coaching practice time and again.
It is all about recognizing and lifting the true potential that lies within all of us in an absolutely positive sense.
And the easiest way to do this is often to stop doing certain things that prevent us from moving forward.
Some time ago (👉 here's the post) I had written about three hidden leadership mistakes:
In principle, the list is inexhaustible. The problem is that we often have little awareness of the impact of our behavior. We often tell ourselves that everything has gone well so far. And that's exactly what prevents us from taking a significant step forward.
Leadership also means moving forward under uncertainty and taking risks. Anything else is not leadership, but management.
I see too many companies that tend to have a risk-avoidance culture. This leads to stagnation and retreat.
Courage means moving forward despite concerns and fears, not ignoring them. Only when we move forward do we see the next opportunities from the new position.
Especially today, waiting is not a good strategy, it is even very dangerous.
I find it remarkable how often leaders lack consistency in their actions and in demanding commitments.
I see this again and again in strategy work and also in the ongoing development of teams: decisions are not implemented and their implementation is not sufficiently enforced by the leaders.
Why? Well, mostly the really important measures are uncomfortable. That is exactly why they have not been implemented so far.
A team in which all decisions and commitments are consistently implemented often makes a giant leap forward.
It is your obligation as a leader to have and radiate high energy. If you struggle with this, then you need to work on it.
Because with low energy, not only are you barely getting ahead yourself, but you're also having a strong negative impact on your team.
The good news is that you can systematically work on generating mental energy. This is an important part of my Coaching. 👉 Get in touch if you want to know more.
