My Core Beliefs
I believe most people are inherently self-motivated and want to impact the world positively. But, people have good days and bad days. So do I. Hardly ever lacking motivation is a character trait, but often the result of unfortunate system design, too little empowerment, missing appreciation, lack of context, or shortage of clarity.
I believe creating the conditions for people to be successful is the foundation to deliver outstanding results. I always felt my role must be to create these conditions and to build the best kind of environment. Or at least to contribute to it. While I enjoy the effectiveness and speed of small, empowered, self-organized teams, I acknowledge the benefits of managing, leading, and directing.
Building, growing, and leading an effective organization is a complex challenge. More often than not, do organizations and their leaders fail.
Performance KPIs and metrics offer insights, drive a sense of urgency, and motivate action. Still, I believe it is strong leadership that connects people and has the power to transform organizations.
I believe candid feedback and coaching are essential to creating the conditions that ensure excellent results and sound performance over long distances. While I strongly advocate giving people responsibility for their personal and professional development, it is the organization's/leader's responsibility to provide them with the proper resources.
Helping others grow is a purposeful and worthy (time) investment. You may earn immediate results, but you certainly invest in a relationship that positively impacts the future. This perspective leaves me with a patient and profound sense of trust in the capabilities of individuals and teams.
