What You Say Is What You Get®--The Power of Followers: "Without a worthy follower, a worthy dream vanishes."

Welcome to the What You Say Is What You Get(R) Positive Leadership Blog! 

From Dr. Linne for Positive Leaders--September 2016

The Power of Followers: "Without a worthy follower, a worthy dream vanishes." Charles Edwards.

What are the five qualities every leader must have in their followers/employees? And why?
How do your followers/employees rate?

Many client executives have anguished over employees who were just not getting the job done,  with products late to market, teams not working well, upsets and conflicts derailing progress, or just poor communication causing poor results and many needless weekends at work.

Many of my consulting projects have focused on this issue.  How about you?

* How happy are you with your employees? 
* Are they working positively, quickly and accurately, with great teamwork, responding well and quickly to changes??
* How can you hire better employees, who are dedicated to the mission of your firm?

Thinking the the power of employees to make or break your business,

* What makes a great follower?
* What are the qualities you want in those you hire?
* What are the five qualities every leader must have in their followers/employees?

Using dance as a metaphor for leading and following, I examined the parallels to leading and folowing in business.

I often get positive feedback on how well I follow, and the leaders I dance with say I make fast intricate complex moves so easy and fun for them.

Thinking about the power of great followers in business, I started analyzing what makes a good follower, a follower that leaders want to lead in dance or in business?

Here are the results of my analysis of client comments and experiences and feedback on my dancing.

1.  Great followers work at it....they are committed and intentionally pitch in and give it their all.  They don't just sit back and wait for the leader to do all the work. 

Application:  In a hiring interview, ask yourself is your job candidate interactive, or just passively answering your questions?

2.  They bring positive energy to each meeting or dance.

Application:  Great followers smile, are enthusiastic, come ready to be good and do good.
In dance, they smile and bring good energy, adding to the dance, not being passive and dragging down the energy.

How high is your Positive Quotient®, or your PQ?

3.  They pay close attention with total focus.  They are totally present in the moment.

Application:  I am watching every thing the leaders do and everything I am doing in response...their arms, their core, their leg and foot position, their speed of direction change, their lead hands and fingers, their facial expression, constantly looking for clues
about what they are doing so I can respond collaboratively and FAST.

In business, notice who is present, attentive, focused on the task, engaged, asking questions.

4.  They keep up to speed on the external environment to understand the context of the business.

Application:  Great followers keep up with their industry and company events and news and the macro-economic environment.
I do this for clients and when dancing keep a very close ear to the music, bass and top lines, moods, speed, rhythm breaks, syncopations, and lyricsso I can "dance the music" with each partner.
 
5.  They invest in their competence and skills as a top priority, always learning, growing, and getting better at what they do, valuing their own talent development, so they are good at what they do.

Application:  Leaders invest in employee development in high-impact ways, bringing in top experts with real-time applications, not just off the shelf cookie cutter basic courses, and great followers eagerly attend and apply what they learn. When I work with consulting clients, my training programs always include
real-time customized application to save clients time and money and improve results.

There is an entire literature on the Learning Organization, showing better results from better learning.

And how about you?

“He who cannot be a good follower cannot be a good leader.”  Aristotle

How good a follower are you?  Do you model good follower behavior as well as good leadership behavior for your employees? 
If I interviewed them, how would they rate you as a follower?

Remember, "Without a worthy follower, a worthy dream vanishes." Charles Edwards.
Make sure you have  worthy followers to support your worthy dreams!

I appreciate all you do to make the world a better place!

Peace and prosperity,
Dr. Linne

What You Say Is What You Get® From Dr. Linne for Positive Leaders In Negative Times

From Dr. Linne for Positive Leaders In Negative Times--What Can Leaders Do?

As an Economist, I watch interest rates which have gone negative in some countries, the labor participation rate, the REAL unemployment rate which is over 9% at least, business investment declining, a dismal GDP revised downward even more, corporations holding $2.5T overseas, and declining corporate profits.

And how sad an indicator is it that the markets are depending on the Fed instead of on the real economy growing?

Experts are claiming a small business recession and indeed this is the first recession since the 1970s when they starting keeping records that the number of small business has DECLINED during the so-called recovery instead of growing in number and leading the recovery as in all other recessions since then. Not a good sign, since small businesses provide two of every three jobs.

As an Applied Behavioral Scientist, I hear the anger and despair here in the U.S. due to poor leadership which has weakened the national spirit as well as the economy.  Fortunately in the American tradition many are speaking out about this.

Nonetheless, as a Positive Leadership pioneer, I encourage clients to keep focusing on the positive,
on their vision, strengths, accomplishments, new positive plans.  

Why would I do this in such a negative environment. This is a Herculean request!

Because only the positive can heal the negative and turn around negative situations.
More negatives cannot heal the negative, whether economic or psycho-spiritual.
Only the positive can protect us, can set the foundation for getting stronger, for
growing our economy, our companies and small businesses.  

Only systematic positive leadership can keep this ship upright in stormy weather.
Consistently driving toward your goals on a positive platform despite a negative environment
is no longer a luxury.  It is now a fundamental requirement for success.

The research I needed to support my pioneering Ph.D. dissertation on appreciation and change came out over 25 years later!! Finally!  It showed that the % of positive versus negative statements in companies correlated exactly with profits.  The more positive statements, the higher the 
profits.  The more negative statements, the lower the profits. 

Yet many leaders talk a positive game but lack the FAST, Frameworks, Attitudes, Systems,
and Tools, needed for success, rapid change and nimble response to the business.  Many 
don't know what they don't know.

How high is your Positive Quotient®?
How high is your Appreciative Quotient®?
If I interviewed your teams, how high a rating would they give you on both of these dimension?
How systematically positive is leadership in your company?
Do leaders have the FAST they need to succeed, or are they struggling with old negative
"what's wrong with you" antiquated leadership models which always fail in this fast,
demanding, shifting environment?
Let us know if you need assistance with Positive Leadership Systems...this can give you a 
huge strategic advantage in the speed of change!

I appreciate all you Positive Leaders who understand and implement systematic positive 
approaches throughout your company!

Peace and Prosperity,
Dr. Linne

For Positive Leaders: What You Say Is What You Get®--In a Crazier World, Get Saner! Do the Math!

Welcome, Leaders,

The external environments for your companies seems riskier and crazier every day.
More negative factors, dangers and risks seem to steal your time and your profits.
Political events, violence, weak unprotective leadership, out of control illegal unethical behavior, weak economies, and business-unfriendly policies are have reached the point of insanity.

These conditions frighten you and your employees, understandably so. Only those in
a fog of denial are not smart enough to be scared...they are choosing numbness. 

Yet you still have the responsibility to lead your company and inspire greater results.
How do you circle the wagons, how do you give your employees a greater sense of protection and possibility for greater innovation and results amid the craziness?

Starting as an Economist before becoming a Behavioral Scientist and Change Leadership expert, I fell in love with Math, head over heels, at the University of Chicago.  There was no going back...from then on, I always think mathematically. 

Thus:  Since the external environment is putting more negative factors into your company,
you need to balance this with more positive factors just to stay even, and then more positive factors to gain a net positive balance psychologically.

This is of course challenging but essential to master, a skill all leaders need to survive.  This
does not mean whitewashing issues of course, but it does mean mastering seeking, creating, standing for, and commenting on positive factors in your company, with great skill, from the heart.  Your job as leader is to make sure you and all the other leaders in your company have the skills and consistency to do this. This will be different in different firms, of course, one size does not fit all.

It is easy to get caught up in giving more attention to negative factors, but ignoring the need for positive factors to balance your firm's culture and psyche will work against you.

"When you forget the positive, you have lost control".  Dr Linne's Power Quote

To be a truly powerful leader, you need to master the positive deeply and systematically. Only this creates a real-time collaborative culture unleashing the best talent and managing risks as quickly and effectively as possible. Employees don't speak up if they are afraid of their bosses.  They speak up if their bosses see, appreciate and fully apply everyone's best.

Peace and prosperity to you all.
Dr. Linne

From Dr. Linne for Positive Leaders--What Crucial Resource Can You Not See? August 2015


From Dr. Linne for Positive Leaders--What Crucial Business Resource Can You Not See? August 2015

Dear Clients, Colleagues, Friends and Family,

Welcome to Dr. Linne Bourget's What You Say Is What You Get
® Positive Leadership Monthly Newsletter! 

Recently I gave some very clear positive feedback to a fellow entrepreneur (not a client) and he deflected it!  He did not see or own his own greatness!
As a result he is not taking advantage of expansion opportunities for his firm.

This sparked reflections on my client executives, most of whom have been brilliant, highly educated at top schools, leaders in their fields and very successful.
What have they taught me about strengths as a leadership focus? When I began my appreciative leadership work, no one else was doing this and there was no research to guide my Ph.D. dissertation, so clients became guideposts.

1.  They usually do not see or under-see their strengths and greatness in depth, compared to what I see in them.
2.  They are uncomfortable discussing strengths and do not know how to until they have learned my business-friendly language system for this.
3.  They have no idea how much money they leave lying on the road from not seeing/applying strengths to their bottom line systematically in all leadership behavior.

I saw this when starting my positive strengths-based leadership work and was, and still am, amazed. 


How can this be? How can these best and brightest not see their best? Excutives have often been surprised that I can see their strengths quickly when they cannot, even though they have worked together for years!

"Without full knowledge of your best, you have only half the truth - the worst half."
Dr. Linne’s Power Quote

I learned that the culture rarely supports discussing strengths and greatness in depth.
As a result, we have massive under-use of strengths because so few are really seen and applied via all leadership behavior systematically.
This means lower profits, more stress and struggle and a lot less fun!
After all, what resource is more crucial for business success than your leadership team's strengths?

Even companies assessing strengths do not have an integrated set of strengths-based leadership systems to apply strengths  to the bottom line, starting with a road-tested Engine and Four Wheels strengths communication system.

There’s a saying: "An opportunity sustains an enterprise for a year; good management sustains an enterprise for a decade;  good corporate culture sustains an enterprise for a century."

How clear is your company's culture about basing success on strengths?
How deeply do you and your team see strengths?
How thoroughly do you have comprehensive systems in place for strengths-based leadership?

Only have you have done both well can you maximize success, profits, and keep the best talent!
One of my first client teams increased revenue by 35-40% in just a few months using this approach!
How about you?  How skilled are you in this?  How high are your Positive Quotient®PQ and your Appreciative Quotient®AQ? If I interviewed your teams, how would they rate you on this?

Peace and Prosperity to You!
Dr. Linne

What You Say Is What You Get® Leadership in Greece-It's Not About the Money!!

The chaos in Greece reminds me of my undergraduate major in Economics at the University of Chicago,
where I focused on comparative economic systems in Russia, China, Japan and the U.S., and the impact of those systems on the behavior and psychology of the people.

I knew then Russia would collapse of its own economic weight which it did years later.  The same for Greece...the underlying issue causing economic chaos is the incredible psychological damage socialism and communism do to the people, "infantilizing" them, making them like dependent children not responsible for themselves..and the people buy into the economic lies which are impossible to fulfill. Hence Greeks do not want to work, pay taxes, pay their mortages, etc. While vilifying capitalist Germany, they want the Germans to pay for their profligacy, as Germans work hard and make money.  Seriously? 

There is a simple but powerful model in psychology:
Dependence---children
Counterdependence--teens in rebellion
Independence--adults stand on their own
Interdependence--adults working together

Tragically Greece is struggling from dependence to counterdependence and in massive resistance
to growing up into adulthood, a culture crisis.

What is going on in Greece is the agony of having to grow up and pay up after drinking the socialist kool-aid.  Tastes good in the moment but messes up your blood sugar and drops it down to where you cannot function without other food.  As we say in Economics, "The problem with socialism is that
you run out of other people's money."  Greece has. 

Most powerful object lesson in the failure of socialism I have ever seen...a message to all nations!!
Note how this one tiny country's failure is hurting other nations.  How tragic for the ancient seat of
democracy also!

From a strengths-based leadership perspective, Greece is leading with her weakness not her strengths.
This always fails and causes worst solutions, not best.
Hopefully the U.S. will change course and stop following Greece's example.


Hoping for the best most responsible outcomes for all of Europe in their crisis,
Dr Linne Bourget

What You Say Is What You Get(R)--For Positive Leaders: How Do You "Tax" Your Business?

 From Dr. Linne for Positive Leaders-How Do You "Tax" Your Business Without Knowing? 3 Hidden Sources of Profit--April 2015

Welcome to Dr. Linne Bourget's What You Say Is What You Get(R) Positive Leadership Monthly Newsletter!

This time of year, we complain about taxes, and in this environment with good reason!!
We may not be able to control taxes but we can control our own "taxing" behavior.

As I have observed over 1000 leaders and their businesses for over 30 years, I have had many chances to
observe leaders adding to or subtracting from their bottom lines.

What are the three things leaders do that stand out to strengthen or tax/weaken their profits?
The answers may surprise you!

Tax #1. Lack of systematic positive leadership culture.  First and most costly, leaders who do not have a consisten, systematic, positive leadership culture are leaving lots of lovely money lying on the road. Upsets, misunderstandings, mistakes, disengagement and delays plague them until we get it turned around.  Caught in the usual problem focus, they do not even realize the costs they have been paying until they see the results of positive changes, e. g. increased revenue 35-40% in a few months due to fuller awareness and use of strengths combined with quality management.

To avoid paying this tax and create more profits:  Install a consistent positive leadership culture in all aspects of leadership in your company,
to save time and money and increase profits.

Tax #2. Ignoring issues, not dealing with them, not paying attention.  Result:  A $1000 problem becomes a $1,000,000 problem, they get bad press, lose their best talent, have higher costs, and lose revenue as employees do not raise issues early when they see leaders ignoring them.  One CEO even lost his business by doing this...talk about risky "taxing" behavior!!

To avoid paying this tax and create more profits:  Face up to issues, encourage your employees to raise them by creating a culture where this is rewarded not punished, and most of all, model the behavior!! The tougher the issue, the sooner you face it!

Tax #3. Not keeping up, staying stuck in old leadership power models.  Many executives do not realize that the employee landscape has changed dramatically...the old authoritarian models of leadership just don't fly with Gen X and Y.  Employees expect aware positive collaborative leaders who understand and are skilled at the use of positive collaborative shared power and the exponential and profitable benefits it brings when used well.

Yet I still hear many complaints about negative bosses.  Yes, the new models of power do require learning, but they are all learnable skills...I always tailor my consulting to the clients' individual styles so that learning is faster and easier for them and applied immediately to their tasks and projects, for learning positive systems for planning, delegation, startups, endings, teams/meetings, change, M&A and more....

To avoid paying these taxes and create more profits:  Stay updated on new positive collaborative leadership power systems.  See this as a systems issue, not leaving it to the personality of each leader in your firm, a common taxing error, but creating a systems-based positive leadership culture and behaviors for every leader so you have consistency and thus credibility with employees, customers, alliance partners, etc.

Many studies are now showing the power of the positive approach for your bottom line.  One example:  The % of positive statements in planning meetings at 60 companies correlated 100% with their profitability...the more positive statements, the higher the profitability!!  (Univ. of Michigan, 2006)

"When you forget the positive, you have lost control."  Dr. Linne's Power Quote

Enjoy your tax freedom and success!
I appreciate all the good work you are doing!!

Peace and prosperity,
Dr Linne

for Positive Leaders--The Profit Power of Patience: What You Say Is What You Get(R)

Hello, Positive Leaders!
 
From Dr. Linne for Positive Leaders:  The Positive Profit Power of Patience
 
Benjamin Franklin said  "S/He that can have patience can have what s/he will." (updated pronouns)

How patient are you?  Is your patience/impatience adding to or subtracting from your bottom line? Are you rushing from meeting to meeting, just skimming the surface?  This is Old Power.  New Power stops and listens for deeper layers and better solutions.

In our fast world it is easy to forget the benefits of patience, and indeed this has been a challenge for me as a future visionary..I can see it done and wonder why it takes so long for others to see it and implement!  
 
Yet I have also learned to slow downand think more deeply, ask deeper questions, take time to understand more deeply...and from that, larger business projects and deals
show up for me...and clients and colleagues who are willing to do the same.

As I say, "Only depth gives you freedom."  Dr Linne's Power Quote

Many believe they don't have the time for depth...but they have time to incur the costs of "hurry up and do it over"!
Sadly I have seen many examples of CEOs trying to rush through a deal without the foundation built, only to see them lose hugely.

One did not feel he could afford the few thousand dollars to hire me to evaluate and help choose his executive team.  Cost: three years of lost revenue, many millions of dollars, a very poor business plan written by an unqualified financial person, legal costs and losses, and huge amounts of stress and upsets....as the British say, penny wise, pound foolish.

Another did not stay in touch during crucial periods in his business and lost most of his business...I could have told him one of his deals was much too risky, but he did not return phone calls or emails....was in a crunch, did not feel like he had time to talk.  Very expensive mistake.

What is hurried impatience costing you?

Taking time to communicate...with patience...can prevent and resolve many issues which would otherwise be deal-breakers.
Working on a large and wonderful project, we have had much back and forth about the documents needed, and delays.
Had I not worked on my impatience for many years and achieved more patience within, I would be frustrated and nervous...but I held to our positive vision and the CEO called and assured me again that he wants very much to work together and documents will meet everyone's needs. 

Having more patience gives me with my patience,  and gives you with your patience, these powerful benefits:

1.  The joy of the project and all the good it can do for so many.
2.  The joy of future projects together...he has more than this one.
3.  The joy of building the relationship, both on the same positive leadership page!
4.  More confidence that this will work out for project and financial good for all of us.
5.  More inner space to experience that this is a great benefit for me as well as for the client.
6.  Much less worry about whether this will come to fruition, and much less stress on my body.
7.  More relaxed mental space to add more layers of value to the client and others involved in every communication.
8.  More relazed mental space to track the details of the documents required and ensure accuracy/protection, so we all have a great foundation.
9.  More creative mental space to reach out to more possible clients with positive energy and programs, and enjoy the process!

Can you list more???

How well do you give your business the benefits of patience?  Do you take time to go deeper or are you rushing from meeting to conference call?

How do you rate on patience?  1=low, 10=High...what is your score?

Can you claim patience as a strength?  If not, work on it every day...this takes focus and practice but is worth it.

Need help?  Contact us..I have powerful patience strategies for clients.

Wishing you peace, patience and prosperity!
