“Not another ask! Will people just let me do my job!” It’s a familiar type of request. You likely get a bunch of these every week from colleagues, your manager, and maybe their manager. And you probably make requests like this yourself regularly.
When you get a request like this what do you do? Most managers choose from 4 options, and they’re all crappy options.
In this three and a half minute video on Situational Contracting you’ll see why the 4 crappy options are crappy, but more importantly you’ll learn how to use a simple 3-step process to get the request either changed or withdrawn.
I’m posting regular video segments titled “From Coping to Conquering” that will offer simple tips for managers to manage more effectively, transform into leaders, and lead exceptionally, especially virtually.
Of special note; 12 statements, each a fundamental element in transformation from manager to leader by doing less, accomplishing more and making a difference. When you complete this survey you’ll have a better understanding of the distinctions between managers and leaders, and know where you are on the spectrum.
Now you’re wondering; what if this 3-step process doesn’t get the request changed or withdrawn? Then stay tuned for Situational Contracting Part 2.
Thank you for viewing the videos and completing the survey. So do you want to get away from being a manager who’s needed always by everyone for everything? I’m here to for you. Drop me a line and let’s discuss you.
