Pretty audacious declaration in the title to today’s post. Is it really necessary, is it worth it, and who cares? In June’s Leadership Fitness Camp we rummaged about in the leader’s character toolkit to equip campers in our online webinar series with some practical tools in this journey. As usual we shared 3 key messages directly from our Quota Sales Self Leadership program.
We unpacked the HAVAV model exploring that “it’s not about you”. These timeless and invaluable characteristics include Humility, Abundance, Vision, Assurance, and Victor. Each a valuable part of a leader’s persona.
We went on to the obvious, that “it’s about others” with the concepts of G3CP. These points included the Glass bowl, Giving not getting, Genuinely care, Communicate constantly, and Perspective.
But the meaty part of our camp dealt with Emotional Intelligence, specifically using the Thomas International tool of TEIQue. Campers participated in a case study to consider which handful of EI traits might best serve our protagonist best. Bob is VP for a company that’s just been acquired. His company’s culture is “family-oriented”, one of teamwork, openness, integrity, and results, and most employees have been there many years. The acquiring company, a multi-national’s culture is more process and rules driven, quick at changes, aggressive and competitive. Bob’s been retained and is asked to ensure a successful transition.
Here’s a no-charge offer to you. First, try your hand at this. Which 3 – 4 of the following 15 facets do you think will serve Bob best in leading a successful transition for the integrated companies?
- Emotion Regulation (regulating own emotions)
- Impulse Control
- Stress Management
- Emotion Perception (understand own and others’ feelings)
- Emotion Expression (control and communicating emotions)
- Emotion Management (managing others’ emotions)
- Social Awareness
Once you’re done, reach out to me and share your results. We’ll chat and I’ll share additional insights that will serve you well in how you can consciously apply the most valuable traits in your own unique case study, that you’re dealing with right now.
