The Moronic Manager – How to Coach Your Team

This video is a little different from most of my content – Over the years I have discovered that observing how NOT to do things can accelerate our learning and growth, so this video series, called “The Moronic Manager” is aimed at having a bit of fun while also providing some inspiration and helpful ideas…

Hope you like it!

The concept idea was taken from another YouTube creator at screen rant called “Pitch Meetings”. If you like the format and like movies, then check it out via this link: https://www.youtube.com/pitchmeetings

Have you taught your team to be helpless?

Today’s business world is unlike any other time in history… Growth in most sectors is in decline, the market is clearly unstable, consumers have more choice than ever, employee’s have more choice too.

For companies to simply survive, they need to diversify and innovate…

There has never been a time in the history of the world that creativity from employees is in such high demand. It is essential.

Yet, many leaders have inadvertently been teaching their workforce to be helpless… Check out this video to see if this effects you:

How can business improve their leaders productivity.

I spend my life guiding individuals to become better leaders and after a time it becomes glaringly obvious that most companies could (& should) do more to cultivate exceptional leadership.

Here are my thoughts on 3 simple ideas that, if companies adopted, would ensure we get the most competent people in leadership roles:

Stop doing this if you want to make your team 31% more productive

In a study of over 50,000 people… Research from the university of California found that motivated employees were 31% more productive, had 37% higher performance and were 3x more creative than demotivated employees.

They were also 87% less likely to quit…

Add this to the Gallup studies, that demonstrate that 70% of an employees motivation is directly influenced by their manager…

which means… that YOU as a leader HAS to take accountability for your teams motivation, as you directly impact 70% of it…

Conclusive evidence we don’t train leadership correctly

80% of CEO’s would sacrifice longterm growth, development and innovation for this quarters profits.
This is undeniable… the people who lead us, don’t understand leadership.

Become a feedback SUPERSTAR!

“Feedback is a gift” or so they say… That is only true if the feedback is delivered expertly. Otherwise feedback can be devastating, destructive and difficult. For everyone concerned!

If you are in a job that has anything to do with people, you will have to give feedback – and because feedback is developmental, you will have to talk about performance improvement.

That means it is highly probable that it will be emotive – For the person receiving the feedback and probably you as well.

When giving feedback goes wrong, it can really go wrong. With high emotions, personal attacks, uncomfortable silences, even more uncomfortable shouting matches and worst of all, no positive change in behaviour!

Yet when it goes right, it can still be challenging, but also positive, open, honest and focused on improvement for the right reasons.

Here is my advice to make sure the next time you give feedback, you nail it (based on getting feedback right AND wrong over the years!)

Common behaviours you MUST AVOID when taking on a new team

As a manager or leader, it is likely that you will be asked to lead an already established team… in effect making you the new person within that team.

The first few months of embedding yourself into the team are going to be critical to the success of the team (and yourself), so it is hugely important to get this right.

Here are some common behaviours you MUST AVOID if you want to lead your new team to success:
