Making it Happen!

Post by anandnaidu.mvt on Wed Dec 10, 2008 6:35 pm

Hello Leaders

Thouht you could use some motivation.

Let me ask you a question and answe me honestly. How frustrating is it when things progress slowly?

When you end up coming back to people and they haven't got on with things like you expected.

And sometimes it seems to be the same people who you have this problem with.

'Making it Happen' is a simple tactic to ensure that progress on a topic is made clearly, quickly and precisely.

Ken Blanchard has a great little (and as always, easy to read) book called 'The One Minute Manager meets the Monkey'. This is all about the 'monkey'.

By ensuring that there is always a 'next step' in any discussion, issue or problem, which is clearly defined, owned by someone and timescaled, you will be much more likely to have progression.

So what is this 'next step' and how does a monkey fit into all this?

Well, the 'next step' is some actual piece of activity that someone (and it is best if it isn't you! I'll come on to that later), takes accountability for delivering, demonstrably and in a certain timescale.

If you've come across SMART objectives, it's along those lines and very tactical. It happens and happens fast - usually.

This 'next step' in a process, means that things keep moving and someone is signed up to the progress by doing the next link towards the final outcome. Think of it as a monkey jumping from each person's shoulder to the next. The 'doer' takes the monkey with them - and you ensure that it isn't usually you!

By keeping this as the goal, step by relevant next step, the overall outcome is achieved.

Who is the 'doer'? Well, that depends on who is best placed to do the doing! In developmental management and team cultures, as many individuals as possible get involved in taking the 'next step' (carrying off the monkey!).

Whilst it is easy for a manager to take the brunt of these, it is very useful to help others take these 'next steps, even if they are not experts in that area of their work.

Using 'next steps' as a developmental exercise can be very valuable for individuals who want to stretch their experience and develop their capabilities.

Without just 'dropping them in it', by providing ongoing support, whilst giving them the accountability to deliver (a strong learning in itself), a manager can evolve a highly skilled and broadly experienced team around who will enable continuity when times get tough.

And a succession planning process which evolves without too much effort.

Things get done, people get developed, the manager delegates effectively, making the best of his or her time.

Now how great a solution is that then!


Yours in Success

Hi Patilarpith

Off course there is.

In short Inspiration is self invoked and motivation is invoked by some external means like from a Leader or from a movie etc. Hence you getting Inspired is much better than you getting motivated. Very Happy

Visit this LINK for a detailed explanation.

Thank you

How can that be ?
Even motivation can be is self invoked, that may not draw the conclusion.

How i feel it is Motivation is to provide motive and it is an act of selfishness or greed
For eg. a manager tells to his people achieve your goals indirectly i achieve mine.


But inspiration if from a latin word which means 'spirit'.
Or to give life.
For eg. Sudha chandran inspired millions.

Dear Patil Arpith,

It is like chicken and the egg. The discussion on which came first will have no end.
But if you say motivation is an act of selfishness or greed, you are off the track for miles. This example (manager tells to his people achieve your goals indirectly i achieve mine.) is more so.
With due respect, I think you should move on to things which are relevent.

Dear Arpith,

I am sorry if I have offended you.
I too want to meet you and get acquainted.

But keep up the good work. Like og mandino said," there are few players and many a spectators in life" You are a player and be so.
Forgive me if i have hindered you, by my remarks.

Hi

Granvel,

1.Greetings! You need a white board and marker. A PC is essential.Few chairs. Arrangements for water ( optional)

2. You need to invite your close friends first. This is a casual approach with no details given. After exhausting this list, tap the casual contacts and strangers. Here, we have diff methods to invite, but with posture.

3. You need to sit with your active leader and learn. He/she does 2-3 calls first and then you repeat the same.

Always maintain a database diary.
