BY WHAT BOTHERS YOU



Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

We reveal to others a great deal about ourselves by what bothers us. Other people can see into our beliefs and thinking by how we respond to life’s circumstances, and how we let those circumstances control us or we control them. It’s not just how we respond to the big stuff that reveals the most…it’s the small stuff that says the most about us.

WHAT WE CAN’T PUT OFF ANYMORE

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

Very often companies know they have an issue, but it just doesn’t hurt the performance enough to focus action to address it. It is only when the management gets the feeling that “we can’t put this off anymore”…meaning – something must be done. As with many things, we can intellectually get something, but not move on it until the feeling kicks in.

MUST BE LED FROM THE TOP

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

Whenever you are driving change across departments, you always need strong leadership to drive it successfully (and fast). Each department looks at their own self interests, and only strong leadership will help change the mindsets and approach of each department, as well as drive the necessary teamwork. Focus on getting the strong leadership first.

BALANCING BIG PICTURE AND GROUND LEVEL

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

One trait in very successful leaders is the ability to see both the big picture of what they want to accomplish, as well as to see those next actions to keep the progress going. This comes from a very disciplined focus on keeping both the direction and progress towards what they want. You will get more accomplished too by focusing on direction and progress.

Does technology lead change?

The Obvious?

I was asked in an interview today if I thought that technology, namely social technology, could bring about change. I was tempted to quote the old psychiatrist joke about people having to want to change but resisted. I do think though that whether it is the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street, or your staff talking about your business with other staff online, the technology is not causing people to change their attitudes but it sure is speeding the process up.

I believe what we are seeing is the morphing from the industrial, corporate mindset to something new and potentially very different. We happen to have the Internet as a platform on which to conduct our conversations about these changes. It enables more people to learn faster from each other, to work out what is happening, and to gain support and strength from each other as they muster the energy and courage to fundamentally change how they see the world.

GREAT IDEAS FILL A NEED

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

The best ideas fill a need that a person or a company has. Great ideas fill a need that the person or company never knew they needed, and these ideas usually come from changing people’s mindsets and how they look and feel about what they do. Look for the need that others don’t even see yet.

CULTURE BUILDS UP OVER TIME

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

A company’s culture is never just born overnight. It takes time, and it is the repeated set of individual behaviours that become the group behaviours (the culture). Very often leaders will become impatient with the creation of the right culture and do something radical…which can have an opposite impact of freezing the change.

WHAT YOU ASK ABOUT

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

As a leader, your people infer a great deal by what you ask about. If you said something was important, and then don’t ask about it for a while, your people are thinking that it wasn’t really important. This could drive them to reduce the urgency on that subject, and to reduce the action they take. Think about what you are currently asking about.

UNDERSTAND THE VALUE YOU DELIVER

Mark’s Daily Thought – Ideas from Mark Fritz to help you Get Ahead, Stay Ahead and Be Successful

Every successful individual or company really understands the value they deliver to others and their customers. Money always follows from the value we deliver, and the best way to deliver more value is to invest the time in understanding what value we deliver now, and how we can do better in the future. What is the value you deliver?
