"Failing Employees"




Even if you have great natural ability, it takes time to become a leader, says John Maxwell. Maxwell, who founded four companies and has spent 30 years in various leadership roles, says you need time to go through four phases of growth:

1. "You don't know what you don't know." To start on the leadership path, you must realize that leadership is influence. And everybody-including you-tries to influence others every day. If you accept that fact, you've reached an important point on the way to becoming a leader: You realize you need to know more about how influence works. 2. "I know what I don't know." You'll usually find yourself in this phase after you've been thrust into a leader's role. Now you know for sure that you need to learn more about influence. So start to gather resources, attend seminars, take courses and talk to leaders in your field.

  • "Help Perfectionists Be Better Managers"
  •    Perfectionists set high standards and push themselves hard. That's fine for self-motivation and career moves, but it can cause problems if they supervise others. When your perfect protégés move to management positions and refuse to cut anyone any slack, you need to:

    ** Help them see and acknowledge that all people make mistakes, and that occasional mishaps don't preclude success. ** Coach them to recognize the difference between who they are and what they do for a living. Example: Just because they see themselves as demanding perfectionists doesn't mean they should magnify a minor defect in an employee's otherwise excellent report. ** Encourage them to publicly recognize what goes well and not dwell on every error. Remind them that steady praise will improve the morale of those they supervise.

    "We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success." - Henry David Thoreau
