Leadership Nudge – FAST FORWARD

Utilizing the Ladder of Leadership™ to build your team’s competence and clarity so you can freely give control is an awesome way to bridge the gap from “Tell me what to do” to “Hey boss, here is what I intend to do.” In last week’s Leadership Nudge™  we offered you a strategy to help your team bridge that gap. That strategy was “Change Perspectives.”

This week we offer you another strategy. We call this “Fast Forward.” Here is how it works. If one of your team comes to you with a “Hey boss, can you tell me what to do?” try this: Open the calendar to a date six months in the future and ask, “If it were six months from today, what do you wish we had discussed today about this issue?” Challenge them think about how today’s decision could affect the future.

Our Leadership Nudge to you this week is this:

Try FAST FORWARD. Challenge your team to look at a challenge based on how it could impact the future.

Let us know how it goes!
