Like the little prince
Often cited is the saying of de Saint-Exupéry, father of the little prince. It sounds so easy, yet this wisdom is often unequaled:
"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up men to get wood, Tasks to forgive and to divide up the work, but teach men to long for the wide, endless sea.”
The purpose of leadership
The purpose of Guide consists in People to accomplish things that they would not be able to do on their own. A team achieves more with a good coach than on its own.
Against this background, hierarchies - albeit in a less dominant guise - no longer appear as antiquated as they are presented today (see also the section on page 85ff Sense and nonsense of hierarchies).
Example: team decisions
You must have a common understanding with your project team decision meet, if possible fast. Should the new mixer be sea blue, moss green or rather black and red?
- Scenario 1: Everyone defends his contribution and hardly sees that other opinions could at least be as successful. After all, no one knows 100 percent what will happen in the future.
- Scenario 2: No one can take responsibility for the decision. In his new book, Gerd Gigerenzer speaks of the tendency to defensive decisions (see Gigerenzer 2013: 51 ff.): If we remain the same, we can be less accused of a flop than a completely new, still unknown strategy.
Everyone prioritizes the three colors for themselves. This makes it clear that colleague A would prefer sea blue with moss green to some extent satisfied is, but Schwarz-rot definitely doesn't want it. Colleague B is similar, only that sea blue and moss green are reversed.
While colleague C with black-red alone stands, but could still agree on sea blue most likely. Thus the consensus clearly goes in the direction of sea blue.
Is motivation a leadership task?
You have probably already heard of a number of possibilities for the promotion of motivation - from individual goals to systemic thinking and rule of thumb, the atmospheric check up to the altruism question.
But is motivation design really a management task!? I allow myself to say a few at this point Ask raise the issue of leadership and Motivation critically illuminate.
Way with the prejudices
To clear up a widespread prejudice: leadership is not the same motivation. Leadership is more than that.
The tasks are actually there clear distributed: Managers should increasingly handle processes and Finance, structures, tools, material, resources, locations or machines.
Leadership - more than motivation and conflict management
On the other hand, should Executives caring about people, about how machines behave check, resources or locations affect employees.
This quickly leads to the fact that, as the person responsible for the personnel, only the topic of motivation and, if necessary, the topic of conflict management on its own agenda can be seen.
The tasks of a manager
A list of leadership tasks brings light here. In order to investigate the tasks of a leadership, in the sense of human leadership, there are three central questions:
- What do your own superiors expect from you?
- What do your employees expect from you?
- What are your requirements for yourself?
Executives in the mediation role
For a better overview, you should classify these tasks and expectations into a schema with the categories realistic and important.
Here, the mediating role of managers between companies and employees becomes clear. You should have visions and goals of the Company convey in such a way that employees are ideally motivated by themselves to give their best.
