En av min favorit podcaster är What great bosses know av Jill Geisler,författare till boken Work Happy, What great bosses know.
Podcasten innehåller ledarskaps tips för managers som vill vara ”great bosses”. Bland annat innehåller den 100 idéer för de som vill bli great bosses.
Här kommer del 5 (41-50) av dessa:
41. Email sent in anger can be a letter bomb. When upset, step away from the keyboard.
42. It is possible to be too nice as a boss. Your staff won’t respect you if you fail to hold underperformers accountable.
43. Everyone likes money, but it’s not the most powerful motivator.
44. The most powerful motivators come from within people: Bosses ignite their sense of competence, autonomy, purpose or growth to fire them up.
45. Mediocrity is a curse; you may be too kind to fire it but you don’t dare promote it. Your job is to eradicate mediocrity.
46. Agendas help meetings. They let introverts prepare their thoughts and keep extroverts on track.
47. Time management is, first and foremost, about setting priorities. After that, it’s about planning the best use of your limited time to meet those priorities.
48. Being self-aware about your strengths and shortcomings isn’t enough. You have to manage yourself so you can lead others.
49. Never underestimate the power of a handwritten note of appreciation.
50. Too many bosses feel they lack the wisdom or words to be inspirational. Give it your best shot. If you don’t, who will?
