This book is about Training, the art of imparting the skills, talents, and abilities needed by you and each team member to consistently produce excellent results.
This book is Volume 8, to The Effectiveness Guide, one of 10 books that provide you with the best in class knowledge, wisdom, and advice on both personal and team effectiveness and contains the minimum level of fundamental knowledge, skill, and ability essential to maximize your true career potential.
Who’s holding a meeting today to move your career forward? Is your leader doing all he can to maximize your potential? Who cares more about your career than you do? What are you doing to improve yourself? What will it take before you decide to act on your own behalf, instead of waiting for others.
I wrote The Effectiveness Guide to focus on the one thing you directly control and can therefore change; your effectiveness. Your effectiveness is the sum of all the skills, knowledge, abilities, and talents that you bring to your employer.
Being selected for a leadership or management position is not something you control. Others, like your leader, make those decisions.
So, how can you become more effective, which is what your leader expects, when it’s not taught anywhere in academia or in your company?
As I see it, you have two choices. You can either do nothing and hope your leader trains you, or you can take the initiative and train yourself.
The bad news is that businesses today aren’t willing to invest in training you until you’ve been with them for a considerable amount of time and have proven yourself. Where does that leave you? You’re on your own-good luck.
Which of these two choices do you directly control? What are you waiting for?
Over the past 50+ years, I’ve been searching for the answer to what makes some people more effective than others and what do effective leaders do that cause their companies to thrive and grow? During that time, I served in the US Military (as a US Army Officer for 23 years) and in Corporate America (as an Executive Coach for 21 years).
Here, I was privileged to work with some of America’s most exceptional men and women who were real game changers, self-starters, and highly effective regardless of titles or position. I observed that the most effective people have several things in common. They were able to influence the actions of others by the way in which they applied the 9 Core Competencies of Effectiveness including Delegating, Planning, Organizing, Communicating, Problem Solving/Decision Making, Awareness, Training, Motivating, and Character.
In a 21st-century world, the best companies, the ones who make it to the top in their industry, are thriving because their breaking all the tradition rules and stereotypes of traditional leadership. Positions, titles, and organizational charts are meaningless. So, what’s left. What remains is effectiveness; both personal and team effectiveness.
The problem today is that many businesses are still relying on traditional development practices, which are stunting the growth of many young leaders. They’re still asking the wrong questions and using the same old lame metrics to measure success, which aren’t working as expected. Traditional assessments like 360 surveys or outdated performance criteria give false positives, lulling people into thinking they’re more prepared than they are.
Business leaders today are still asking the wrong questions.
Instead of asking, “What are the qualities of great leaders?”, and trying to copy them, you should be asking, “How can I become more effective tomorrow than I am today?”
So, if you’re looking for a better way to jump start your career, this guide will be the best investment you could ever make.
The one thing I know for certain is that doing nothing, sitting there, and waiting for someone else to make you more effective, is the definition of complacency, which will kill your career.
