Transforming culture and routines - lessons from the frontline

Motivation is a very personal thing and it can differ. Succes is defined in the same way, very personal.

Making sure your people do the Right Thing

Big question for all leaders is “How can I make sure my people do the right thing?” When leaders I train ask me this question I tend to counter a bit Socraticly asking “What is the right thing?” It all starts with giving your people the responsibility to make choices and take responsibility and ownership for the choices they make - regardless the outcomes.

First costs earned are costs not made

A good friend of mine uses to make a joke saying: “Today I saved 200 euros..”

He presents this as a cliff hanger and you are supposed to ask as a follow up: “Ok...interesting...what did you do?” Then he says: “I did not buy that 200 euro’s shirt I saw in the shop, I just walked by..” and then he laughs because you bought into his trick.

Mismatching formal and informal Culture blocks innovation

Groups have always fascinated me - groups can make me feel uncomfortable because of a certain hostility towards participation, alternatively they feel like a warm bath in a very cold winter as they embrace you. Because of these biased feeling towards groups and how they work I have made a life time study of group behavior and how to best interact with groups and their members in order to get things done.
