"I put more time into strategy"

"I have thought that by putting all of my energy into taking on responsibilities, working hard long days, and executing the best possible ways, only then I am valuable enough to be promoted at work.

 

I realized that I need to value and respect myself to be a better person to others. I also started to delegate more.  I noticed that my team takes full responsibility and are proud of doing so. They expect me to listen and lead, not do everything.

 

I can now focus more on leadership skills, empowering, and coaching others to build trust. I have started to put more time on strategy and project planning, development planning and leading others, collaboration, and building networks."

Country Refs Manager, Novartis

Stories from the field

Ruth describes her most challenging team coaching environment...

"I loved working with every person across the three teams that I coached. They were all high performing individuals.

But put them in a room together?  Meetings often descended into complete silence or a cacophony of individuals trying to talk over each other. Unresolved conflict hung in the air and stopped progress.

While most team coaches would focus on resolving the conflict, Peter Hawkins' 5 Disciplines model required the team to dig a bit deeper. Figuring out why the team was coming together (purpose), setting clearer objectives and agreeing accountabilities moved the teams away from conflict and towards collaboration."
