How High Is Your Appreciative Quotient®, or AQ? The Dance of Leader and Follower--Trust and Collaboration at Work, How High Are Yours?

What You Say Is What You Get® Series from Dr. LInne Bourget MA MBA Ph.D.

As things open and we can dance again, I an resume by book on the dance of lead and follow as it relates to business, especially the leadership power of the value of trust and positive collaboration.

My recent showcase dance prep and performance included these parallels to business leadership:

1. My teacher and partner accepted my choreography, from trust established over years, as he taught 

me I could choreograph. He clearly said what he liked, mostly all, from 5 dances, and in a 

few places said he didn’t hear the music that way or thought a change would bet better...

he was right every time..power of a pro! we were not afraid to push back 

on each other to get the best results...better outcomes! Can your executive teams do this well?

 

2. I completely trusted him to fall back into his arms for a low scoot along the floor after 4 fast spins. 

In fact, I trusted him so much to catch me that I asked him to give me a bit more space for my arm 

lines during those spins! This team trust was built over years. Do your teams trust you this much?

 

3. I trusted him to hold or balance my weight for leveraged moves. The moves he changed or 

added were ideal in helping me achieve my goals and showed me off better especially the split at the end which was pain-free...not bad for a boomer, he knew I could do it!

 

4. I appreciated his challenging me to think further, as I had asked him to push me and demand

 more of me, which he did...the split at the end was his idea, easy and pain-free,

 to my pleased surprise. Great leaders show you you can do more than you thought. I 

love doing this for client executive teams, great that he did this for me.

 

5. Seeing two places I wished I had done arm lines better, I am eager to improve for the next 

performance, expanding my view of the choreography I had started for the next showcase and 

what more I want to include. The quest for better performance! My participation in the choreography

increased by commitment to improve after the joy of getting great feedback on my performance.

 

6. My facilitation, consulting, listening and feedback skills strengthened our partnership...fun to apply them to dancing!

Dr. Linne Bourget’s Newsletter for Positive Leaders--COVID-19 --Psychological Recovery--What You Say Is What You Get® 

 

 What to Do As Executives in Tough Times?

 

We have all heard about the severe psychological consequences of COVID-19 shutdowns (please avoid prison lock down terminology, which creates more fear and depression).

 

What can you and your executive teams do to lift the emotional clouds as you open workplaces?

 

1. Realize employees' may have an emotional cloud over them, about themselves and family.

2. Re-affirm your positive commitments as senior executives to your mission, vision and values.

3. Understand they need more communication and re-assurance.

4. Stand on your teams’ and your strengths. Know and discuss them. We have 10 Positive Leadership application systems to take them to your bottom lines.  

5. Must do this to counteract and keep your positive balance and culture among all the negatives.  

Never give up your dreams. Stay close to your positive spiritual life.

 

On the Lighter Side

 

And, like me, if you need another hour in your day, take heart! In the next 180 million years, 

Earth's rotation will have slowed down so much that one day now is one hour longer.(buzzfeed.com)...if only I had the patience to wait!

 

I appreciate your positive leadership, especially now.

Peace and Prosperity,

Dr. Linne Bourget  M.A. M.B.A. Ph. D
