    In this episode, I outline 3 simple strategies you can action when someone on your team, just won't change.

    Putting them on a performance improvement plan should be your very last step and hopefully one of the strategies in this video will mean it won't get to that.

    Here's the question:

    I'm having trouble with one of my direct reports. They are a very keen team player yet make commitments and rarely follow through. Particularly, if they think their actions may piss somebody off. I appreciate their sensitivity but at times they need to make a call. Yet, even though I've pointed this out several times, their behaviour continues. Before putting them on a performance improvement plan, do you have any ideas?

    I’d love you to reflect on the 3 simple strategies outlined and consider which one you need to better employ.

    I hope it helps.

    Enjoy the episode and please share it with other friends, colleagues and leaders you know would benefit from the lessons within.

    To watch the original video visit: https://www.thehumanenterprise.com.au/2022/03/16/manage-energy-not-time/

    ----

    In this episode, I outline a technique for managing your energy. How to make sure you're focusing on what really counts and keeping your MOJO alive (We see MOJO as the combination of MOmentum and JOy).

    Here's the question we received:

    "I love my job. I love the people I work with. Yet more and more I'm involved with presentations and activities, that although others see as important, hold little interest for me. In fact, at times, I know I'm coming across as bored. Have you worked with other leaders that feel the same? How do they handle this dilemma?"

    It's so easy as a leader to get caught up in other people's agendas.

    Don't do it.
    You'll regret it.

    Sure there are some activities you must do from time to time, but if there are too many of them and you're spending too much time doing them, you'll lose your spark.

    Enjoy the episode and I hope it helps.

    We’ve taken some time off AND we’re back.

    Here’s the question for this episode:

    “I have a question not an answer. How do you address a leaderless organisation that has people nominated as leaders by position.“

    In this episode, I explore what you can do when the leadership in your organisation is not up to scratch.

    Part of that is initially accepting what you can’t change with “cheerful fatalism” and then using your energy to look at what can change.

    Starting with yourself.

    In these 'crazy' times it's easy to get bogged down in your personal bunker, your workload, your priorities, your family, your challenges, your "stuff".

    And yet, more than ever, it's during these times that your leadership abilities need to be focused on how you can support others, help them grow and help them stay connected to community. In the words of Bryan Ferry "Let's Stick Together".

    Here's this week's question:

    "Can you provide an overview of servant leadership and how it can be applied in a leadership role within a public-serving organisation?"

    In this episode, I outline what "servant" leadership is all about, who you need to care about and provide a couple of tips on how to apply servant leadership in your life.

    Enjoy.

    In this episode of Mentoring with Mitch, I offer some ideas on how to deal with one of the most difficult situations you'll encounter in your career - the inappropriate behaviour of your boss.

    Here's the question:
    "When your organisation indicates there is an important inclusion and diversity initiative but a senior leader that is great at 'managing up' is not supporting this with their insensitive style, in fact from the ground up is the cause of a larger than expected staff turnover, is there anything you can do to effect change?"

    So if you're not interested in "Waiting on the World to Change", I overview 3 options of dealing with it:
    -Escalating
    -Escaping
    -Embracing

    We'll then go through 3 tried and tested steps on how to deal with the issue with the understanding that by not "moving towards the tension" things can only get worse.

    Enjoy.
