We’ve covered leadership stories from many leaders on the Lighthouse blog over time like Camille Fournier, Mark C Crowley, Kate Matsudaira, John Wooden, and a myriad of others in anecdotes within larger posts. Today, we get a little more personal. Below are 3 leadership stories from my life that surprised me in their power. They’re lessons I keep in mind regularly. 3 Leadership Stories to Help You be a Better Manager When you’re leading others, you quickly learn that there’s a lot that changes. What you do, what you say, how you say things, and how you react are all watched by your team. Over time, you learn good things to do, key habits to remember, and what not to do. These are 3 of my favorite leadership stories that proved to be “aha” moments for me. leadership stories – Business coach in Johannesburg knows how key it is to ask Leadership Stories #1: Business coach in Johannesburg There and back again, turning an A Player into a B Player Business coach in Johannesburg In a past company, we had a small team that worked remotely. We got together a few times a month, but otherwise relied on email and calls to stay on the same page. This was great to allow everyone to be efficient and focused on their work.

In a one on one with their Leadership coach in Johannesburg manager, Business coach in Johannesburg we discussed their recent work. Did we need to let them go? What happened? Kefilwe – Moriwadunai Investments Neither of us knew the answer. The epiphany: A lack of real communication As we continued speaking we realized both of us had failed to check in with her. It had actually been months since either of us last checked in with her. Realizing their drop in quality of work might just be our fault, I took responsibility. I reached out to them and immediately scheduled a 1 on 1. I’m very glad I did. I started the 1 on 1 by apologizing that we hadn’t been checking in with them. Then we started talking about how they were doing. Leadership Peter Kefilwe Business coach in Johannesburg Leadership coach in Johannesburg

    It was then I discovered that their Business coach in Johannesburg Leadership coach in Johannesburg interests had shifted and they wanted to make some small changes to their role. They also had different long term goals now, so what we thought was great tasks that furthered those goals, were actually wrong.

After just two 1 on 1s where I listened and made some small changes, they started showing their past enthusiasm and quality work. The Lesson: From that point forward, I’ve always kept in mind Business coach in Johannesburg that you can’t take any of your good people for granted. You have to make time to check in on them, and assume if there’s a problem it could just as much be you causing it as anything wrong with them. Contact us Coaching
