Your managers are the ones directly responsible for engaging the hearts and minds of your employees, so why not fire them if engagement is lacking? The alternative would be to train them.
When I say train them, I mean train them the right way.
Start by disrupting their mindset. Slowly give them the skills and tools needed for them to become transformational leaders and enroll them in the simple steps to BE effective leaders.
It’s simple – not easy.
The old-school method of ‘pour & snore’ content delivery will create a momentary dopamine injection that comes with insight, but that fleeting sense of fulfillment and perceived capability is quickly followed by inaction and amnesia. It’s a waste of money.
Most leader onboarding processes are broken and results in leaders clinging to the the only thing they know – the habits and behaviors that got them there. So, when push comes to shove and the pressure mounts, people always default to their lowest level of training – which, from our experience, is not very high.
The hard part for new (and existing) leaders is breaking free from the habits formed early in their career that have helped them achieve success. It’s simple to do. The hard part is committing to the structure that makes your leadership effective, not relying on your positional authority.
