If Only Leaders Applied These Exacting Principles In Conversation And Life At Work And At Home

If Only Leaders Applied These Exacting Principles In Conversation And Life At Work And At Home

There has been such a general deterioration in the type of language people use that it can be embarrassing at time to overhear or be involved in certain conversations and even professional business conversations. Do some leaders just use vile violent words to shock others?

Almighty God is not affected by profanity. By the taking of the Name of God in vain or misusing the Name of Jesus Christ, it is man who is affected.

Having been reading and studying in Matthew Chapter 5, we find around verses 21 and 22 that the words we use or misuse or abuse have wider influence and implications than we sometimes realise.

The word is an expression of who God is, and what we are. This is what these phrases are all about. This is one reason why men in leadership should be careful as to what they say.

How often has a microphone been left on and what the man really thinks has been broadcast!

If Only Leaders Applied These Exacting Principles In Conversation And Life At Work And At Home

This is how we can trust His Word and know that what He says is reliable and true. It is an expression of who He is.

There is no wedge driven between Jesus and His Word. There is no disparity.

That is why we are called to bear His image, and be ambassadors for God.

There is to be no disparity between what we are and what we say. We cannot be one thing to one person and another thing to something else. How many in leadership have tried that and when it is too late they discover how they have failed?

It rules out speaking about people behind their backs. It rules out speaking about others in hushed tones.

Anything else is from the evil one because it does not bear His image.

Jesus Christ is challenging and cleaning up the rabbis two faced hypocrisy.

Jesus is dealing with integrity here.

To be able to speak and to know that anything we say could be broadcast or heard by anyone is an amazingly strong position to be in, and to be trusted, and for people to know that when they speak to us it is not going to be twisted, but that we can be trusted because of the integrity of Christ in us through the Holy Spirit, and when we say “Yes” we mean yes and when we say “No” we mean no.

By the way, are we not liars by nature? Is this not one of the reasons why we ask people to swear over a Bible when giving evidence in Court?

We have in some way to be distinctly bound to tell and speak the truth, and we use the Bible because man believed that behind this Word was the character of God before whom we have to appear and stand and answer one day.

The formula of words is not important. You know the type of thing we hear children say – “cross my heart and hope to die!”

Now, this is … Read More

Business Success and Failure is a Team Sport – The Art & Science of Managing Teams

Business Success and Failure is a Team Sport - The Art & Science of Managing Teams

The Image: Jacques, the manager of a huge large pipe manufacturing business describes team dynamics.

“A pipe, no matter how thick or long it is, is only as strong and reliable as its thinnest, weakest part. All our pipes come out looking great on the surface. It’s only when we put them through our scanners that we can see whether the pipe is fit for shipping. So, too, like our teams. We only know how competent, strong and functional they are under the stresses and strains of everyday manufacturing demands. Sometimes they just blow up!”

What A Team Is: A group of individuals working in sync, with competence and motivation to accomplish a common objective. A high performing team has a dynamic, sometimes conflicted, energy that propels it forward in the service of achieving its purposes.

Business Success and Failure is a Team Sport - The Art & Science of Managing Teams

A Group is Like: A bunch of people on a bus. All heading in the same direction. Driven by the bus driver. People don’t talk with each other. They get on and off as they please. The only commonality is the vehicle.

Key Action Words/Phrases of A Team: Accountability. Self-responsibility. Conflict. Problem-solving. Clear Objectives. Formal leader. Informal leaders. Celebration. Temporary. Individual roles are critical to and subordinate to team goals.

“I” is each of the parts that forms the “we” that pull together to make it about the bigger “us.”

Working Images of Teams: Cirque de Soleil. Top Gun. An aircraft carrier. A surgical team. A flash mob dance.

Dysfunctional Groups: The Senate. Detroit Lions Football Team.

Each individual on a team is responsible for the approach, achieving the assigned goals and the internal processes that helps or hinders progress.

Business is a team sport. Actually life is a team sport — a fact which many people ignore at their peril.

A team without a leader is like a child without a supervising adult. The best teams are self-governed and enforce their own peer-based discipline and they have a formal leader to guide them. The Miami dolphins without Don Shula would not have had a no-loss season. Microsoft with Bill Gates? Apple sans Steve jobs?

A team generates and regulates a sense of unity among its disparate individuals. It also leverages individual performances into team accountability and outcomes.

Without an effective management team a company will not likely be able to develop its teams.

Incompetence flows downhill.

Policies and corporate strategies do not a high performance team culture make.

Managers, as team leaders, have the tension-filled, opposing challenge of exercising the right authority and inclusiveness. That’s the art.

It is best when a team sets its own goals and processes based upon the inputs from its members. That’s the science.

A well-mixed team made up of individuals with differing style and skills, and who are committed to the team, can produce for the organization.

A high functioning team is flexible enough to shift – sometimes smoothly, sometimes with turbulence — leadership roles among the members to fit the situation.… Read More
