Outsourcing Power and what it means to you

Globalization is here. Large organizations outsource work for cheaper production. Produced quality is similar when compared to higher priced competitors regarding a large variety of projects. Outsourcing has enabled more choices and flexibility for awarding work.  Outsourcing has improved our choices and fueled worldwide competition. The ability to outsource has saved valuable time, stress, and finances that have enabled greater overall production.

Outsourcing has removed the entitlement behavior that dominated the workplace for decades which promoted slow to average growth. The adaptation to outsourcing has improved workplace productivity and created a fiercely competitive environment that produces record-breaking results.

Outsourcing work is not only for organizations, but rather, anyone can leverage the evolution of globalization to improve their individual productivity and overall lifestyle. Outsourcing can add years to your life by removing stress producing projects from your to-do list and which creates valuable free time that enables an alignment between activities and passions.

S.M.A.R.T. Goals Explained

Successful people create S.M.A.R.T. goals and people are successful because they create S.M.A.R.T. goals.  A true full circle – below is an outline of how you can apply S.M.A.R.T. goals to your process so you could enhance your success in a shorter amount of time and join the ranks of the Elite.

It all begins with an end goal in mind – A true desire – A need that you want to fill.  S.M.A.R.T. is an acronym for creating a process to reach the end result with success.  Stress is produced when order turns into havoc and having a S.M.A.R.T. blueprint allows the goal to take on its own form of auto-pilot thus reducing associated stress.

S.M.A.R.T. goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely.

Specific – I want to make a lot of money vs. I want to make 250k within the next 8 months.  A specific measuring point provides you a metric for success or failure and provides a solid mental structure that creates motivation and purpose.

Measurable – Daily, Weekly, Monthly metrics are important when measuring your progress to meet the end goal.  Developing a specific amount of time per day dedicated to making a specific amount of money will allow you to measure the difference between existing and needed amounts to reach the end goal.  These measurable structures allow you to create an automated trajectory to meet your end goal.  This will allow you to adjust your metrics along the journey in order to reach the desired target or to reduce the end goal to a more realistic outcome. “Things that get measured get done” – Peter Drucker

Attainable – Or in other words realistic – You will not go from earning no money to earning 10 billion every 6 months.  Although we would like to make drastic leaps in earning potential, this is not realistic.  Develop a realistic goal that can be achieved.  Coaches note: Don’t sell yourself short either – You can achieve great things with great effort – All things are possible if you believe in yourself, find the correct operations, and work hard and diligently to achieve your desired results.

Relevant – How does this goal apply to your life? Are you motivated to meet this goal? Do you own the goal? The importance of the goal in relation to your life satisfaction is optimal for applying yourself to completing your efforts. If there is no substantial benefit or improvement then why are you doing it anyway? Choose your goals strategically and make certain that you want to achieve the desired results and gain a full understanding on the rewards you will receive on your journey.

Timely – Start the countdown – Without a time limit, the goal accomplishment could go on indefinitely.  Without a future goal post to signal the end will inhibit your success by allowing daily distractions to interfere with your required efforts. Success is defined as meeting goals. Set a feasible target date to enhance commitment and focus and this is the final step in being S.M.A.R.T.

Negotiate like a Pro – Quick List of Negotiating Tips

Most people don’t like to negotiate – studies have shown that negotiation is the main  reason women receive less pay when compared to men in the workplace.  Negotiation does not always have to be sneaky or intimidating – especially if you know certain techniques.  Organizations want to know how well you can negotiate because this ability will serve the organizational cause in the future – If you are poor at negotiating then you will be perceived as a liability to the company and receive less money in the process.  Below are a few solid techniques to aid you in your development of negotiating skills and to earning a greater degree of respect from the other side.

  • Negotiations are time-bound and 80% of the action happens during the final 20% of the time
  • Strategy: Create additional demands during the final 20% of time to increase pressure
  • Enter negotiations with a full understanding of what you are willing to accept
  • Bring your requirements along with a list of unreasonable requests to create camouflage
  • Each side likes to win points and these unreasonable requests will serve you well during the final portion of negotiation
  • Make them seem important and do not show your hand – they will allow you to achieve your goal
  • Give up your unreasonable requests late in the negotiation so the other side will get a win and you could exchange for something important
  • Watch body language to see if it aligns with what is being said verbally – misalignment means a bluff or lie

 

Stay patient – Patience Wins

Lead with Purpose

Mother Teresa, Gandhi, The Pope, Martin Luther King Jr., George Washington, all the great leaders in the stories that we have learned from are unique but not dissimilar to us.

Most people have the ability to be this great – Greatness is in the core of us all.  We are all born with similar traits that allow us to be great when we are ready to seize the opportunity.

Most people never take the opportunity because they either fear the unknown or lack enough confidence.  People hold themselves back – They don’t take the chances because they don’t understand their strengths.  Unfortunately, most people sadly follow the road that is dictated to them instead of dictating their own path in life.

How many people do you know that have followed in their father’s footsteps?

Why is not taking charge a common theme?

It’s not easy to make a choice – Most people won’t – Its hard making critical decisions – most people don’t have the confidence.  Choices are made for them instead of making choices for themselves.  It is safer to follow the crowd than to go alone into the unknown.

We praise our leaders because of their courage and because of their choices.  This greatness that we admire is in all of us – Same DNA, same human abilities, same mental structure.

The difference is the self-awareness of understanding strengths, recognizing weaknesses, and an ability to overcome fear.  Once these are recognized you can make your own decisions.

People are afraid to make the change – it becomes uncomfortable thinking about the unknown future – we try to create certainty.  Abraham Lincoln was the master of paradox and enshrined as one of the greatest leaders of all-time – we all have the ability to face fear and live in the paradox – most of us don’t have the courage to do it.

Why don’t we? What causes barriers?

Is it fear or uncertainty avoidance? Is it the need for safety?

History says if you don’t change you die – Evolution says you have to adapt to the new situation

I say, Lead with purpose, prevent problems by reacting before they happen instead of afterwards.  Don’t be a yes-man and follow the crowd – have a voice, be valuable, live your life the way you want.

Escape from Freedom?

Escape Freedom?

Normally we think of freedom as a concept we cling to for dear life instead of flee from, but Dr. Eric Fromm theorized that people escape from personal freedoms in order to feel secure.  Dr. Fromm determined that freedom is a central theme within human nature (Boeree, 2006).  Escaping freedom involves three processes that include clinging rigidly to an authoritarianism structural view of society which provides a source of stability and correctness that creates a foundation for determining clear correct decisions.  The second process is Self-destructive behaviors that effect everyone connected – Suicide is the most extreme form of destructiveness (Boeree, 2006). The third process of running from freedom is called automaton conformity.  Dr. Erich Fromm coined automaton conformity which describes individuals that hide like a chameleon behind their culture in a society of equality.

These behaviors are possibly learned from cultural history which involved conforming to the ruling power – Waiting to be told what to do instead of being proactive and creating innovation.  Current society possesses the ability to implement innovation and are encouraged to do so which is in great contrast to the majority of human history.  These ideas are presented to increase self-awareness concerning behaviors – Do you ever find yourself running from freedom? Hopefully, this will provide a new perspective for understanding the underlying reasons why people hold on rigidly to old beliefs.  We have the ability to break free of the limiting beliefs that have been passed down and create a new awareness that empowers us to be the leaders of our own lives.

Boeree, C. G., (2006) Personality theories

The Professional Coaching Process Explained

The ORID model is revolutionary and is the next step in the evolution of communication. This coaching model is a coach’s best friend because it identifies the correct process to enable the client to expand on their inner potential. Awareness and motivation are critical elements to seizing success in personal and professional encounters. We believe that there is no such thing as a dead-end and there is always a possibility to win when there is a present unstoppable will. Our clients overcome extreme adversity and we have the endurance to support against any odds. We implement strategic tools and logic to expand the field of view concerning all situations. The ORID provides a great system to improve communication between the coach and elite associate. Coaching skills such as active listening and powerful questions enable the professional coach to take this tool to a higher level and a lesser qualified coach would not be able to manage the above tool effectively.

The ORID diagram seems complex and difficult to interpret, but the following will explain the complicated terms in clearer detail. The O in ORID stands for observation which is code for understanding the background information concerning specific client situations. Background information is important for understand current and future situations. A qualified professional coach knows how to understand the content that is being communicated. There are hidden messages that a competent coach can pick up on and create awareness for their client. If done correctly, this feedback can be greatly influential in the client’s life.

The R in ORID stands for reflective which concerns understanding the feelings and emotions associated with the background information. A skilled coach will move effortlessly between these two categories and can maneuver back and forth gathering background information mixed with the associated feelings. The ORID box is extremely important because it identifies when discomfort is created – A lesser skilled coach will unknowingly create discomfort during the coaching process because they are unaware of the critical rules of communication. Trust is incredibly important when exploring feelings and emotions when supporting a client during this experience. Comfort and safety associated with privacy and confidentiality during the coaching process is essential in understanding all connected elements. True empathy is omnipotent in these situations and a born to be coach will posses this ability.

The I in ORID stands for Interpretive which concerns a full understanding of the previous two categories of O and R plus a focus on co-creating strategic solutions to improve current and future situations. A common mistake of inexperienced coaches is to cross the center and jump to decisions from feelings or from solutions back to background information. These jumps cause discomfort and skew the coaching relationship because mistrust is unconsciously created. When the coach has safely guided their client to the solutions stage there is a synergy that is growingly powerful. The momentum to overcome obstacles is fierce and the client begins to establish new growth that leads to greater accomplishment. This stage provides a clear-minded platform for expert brainstorming that magnifies client abilities to think strategically from multiple perspectives. The coaching feedback during this stage is extremely beneficial for the client because it signals that they are on the right page and reinforces their motivation to succeed – Sounds great huh.

The D in ORID stands for Decisions and this is the fourth category that has the task of capturing the momentum of the previous three categories. This is the mental arena where the client puts the optimum solution into practice and owns the process. This firmly empowers the client to take action in their lives to improve their position by making decisions that are free of false underlying beliefs that create arresting emotions that inhibit appropriate action. The coach guides the process and the client controls the content – The coach empowers the client through the coaching process and the client embraces the opportunity to reach their ultimate potential. An ongoing coaching engagement provides a constant platform for the client to interact with a professional coach. This provides the ability to reflect on progress or various factors that limit progressive action. This is a time to gain a deeper understanding about issues, circumstances, decisions, beliefs, and to brag about reaching previously unrealized goals faster than could possibly be conceived. This experience is what professional coaches live for and witnessing the development of clients is the greatest gift that the coach could receive.

What is Leadership Development?

What is Leadership Development?

     Leadership development is an activity that enhances Leadership ability within the defined leadership situation which concerns developing individuals through different developmental exercises.  The myth associated with leadership is that it is developed from inborn traits, but the truth behind the mystery of Leadership is that this unique ability is learned.  The art of leadership is based on a large-scale of traits that no one individual can possibly encompass, although, there are high potential individuals that possess many leadership factors that contribute to success at the highest level.  Identifying strengths and enhancing those well-defined abilities is integral to enhancing overall leadership ability and organizational psychologist have spent many decades deciphering the leadership code.

     There are multiple factors that combine to form the personality of a leader.  Not all great leaders are developed equally; to the contrary, most great leaders are drastically different from one another.  Personality traits, emotional intelligence, social intelligence, self-awareness, and instinctual factors conjoin to form the prominent behaviors of esteemed leaders.  Leadership is difficult and requires a well-trained individual to handle the immense responsibility.  Everyone wants to be the highly respected leader, but no one wants the responsibility that comes with the position.  This increases the difficulty associated with being a competent leader because of the difficulty associated with getting buy-in from followers.  A leader is merely an individual with followers and there is no such thing as a leader without followers. 

    Overall awareness concerning leadership requirements an all important first step that prevents averse communications that hinder relationship growth between leaders and followers.  Transferring the appropriate knowledge to high potential leaders is essential for leadership success and accurate translation of leadership knowledge into action can greatly increase the aptitude of a respective organization.  Distinct leadership abilities begin with the inner self – Self-awareness, self-control, high self-monitoring, an internal locus of control, and most importantly, the motivation to be the leader.  No one can become a great leader without the motivation to be a leader – Warner Burke.


Executive Leadership Coaching

    Transferring of leadership knowledge has been identified in several circumstances which include action learning, mentoring, multi-rater feedback, and more specifically, executive coaching.   Multi-rater feedback has been shown in multiple research articles to be more effective with the implementation of executive coaching.  Mentoring is a wonderful tool that transfers the ability to operate within a specific organizational culture, but lacks the confidential non-bias environment that is needed for true leadership development.  Professional executive coaching provides this monumental approach to leadership development by infusing action learning and executive coaching together to expedite the developmental process.

    High potential leaders are promoted for being technically great at what they do in regards to operations in certain niche areas.  They have proved their worth to their organization by showing their dedication, work ethic, and high integrity when it comes to company functions.  They have shown their ability to execute under stressful circumstances and have excelled by providing the highest quality of work.  Their managerial abilities were exceptional and their successful operational style influenced positive overall group processes.  They have learned to take on increased responsibility and have shown their ability to succeed as leaders.  The developmental next step in the career game is to climb the hierarchical ladder to the next level which involves leading a larger amount of associates, increased responsibility, and relinquished control over multiple situations.  This extreme decrease in control is counter-intuitive which creates a damaging effect on the overall behavior of most leaders who are used to having full control.  The new enlarged leadership position now places different demands on the leader which causes them to change their operational methods from a command and control style into a persuasive style that leverages the strengths of group associates to accomplish greater tasks.

    This behavioral transformation takes great effort and should not be underestimated.  Leadership development requires a skilled executive coach that understands the emotional rollercoaster involved with the leadership process as described above.  A successful coach-leader relationship will exponentially increase the learning curve needed to become a great leader.  The amount of time, money, frustration, damaged relationships, and more that are saved through investing in an executive coach during the leadership development process is priceless.
