MENTORING: “Leaders explore and hold their people accountable”

MENTORING: “Leaders explore and hold their people accountable”

Leaders strongly believe in taking advantage of every opportunity to share and train their people. When leaders see that their people are not coping, they seize the moment and become mentors.

What can we learn from good leadership mentors:

1 – At first they are usually annoyed that their people cannot complete the task.
2 – they take responsibility for showing what they should do.
3 – they evaluate their activities and find out why something didn’t work.
4 – they confirm reality and hold people responsible for taking on the task.

The method therefore contains four elements: 1 instructing, 2 demonstrating, 3 experience and 4 exploring.

Executive:

  1. teaches,
  2. shows it,
  3. allows others to try it themselves and
  4. shows the process behind it.

“This is leadership development.”

To think about:

  1. Do I often get annoyed that my people can’t complete the task?
  2. Am I taking responsibility to show what they should do?
  3. Do I evaluate my activities and explore why something didn’t work?
  4. Am I confirming reality and holding people accountable to take on the task?

English:

MENTORING: “Leaders Assess and Hold their People Accountable.”

Leaders are firmly convinced that they want to seize every opportunity to pass on knowledge and train their people. When leaders see that their people are struggling, they seize the moment and become mentors for their people.

What can we learn from good leadership mentors:

  1. They first get frustrated that their people can’t complete the task.
  2. They take responsibility for showing what should be done.
  3. They evaluate their activities and explore why something didn’t work.
  4. They confirm reality and hold people accountable to take on the task.

The method, therefore, contains four elements: 1 Instructing, 2 Demonstrating, 3 Experiencing, and 4 Explore.

The Leader

  1. teaches,
  2. demonstrates,
  3. allows others to try it themselves, and
  4. shows the process behind it.

That is leadership development.

Food for Thoughs:

  1. Do I get angry when my people can’t fulfill a task?
  2. Do I take responsibility to show what they should do?
  3. Do I evaluate my activities and explore why something didn’t work?
  4. Do I confirm the reality and hold people accountable for taking on the task?
