I am excited to work with organizations that continually create and redefine meaning in the lives of their employees and the customers they serve. My leadership philosophy is in harmony with appreciative leadership.
What is appreciative leadership?
Ayon kanila Diana Whitney and James Ludema, appreciative leadership is…
“the capacity to engage others in discovering, magnifying, and connecting all that is good and healthy in people and the world around them — in such a way that deepens relatedness, inspires transformational conversations, and mobilizes cooperative action toward life-affirming social innovations.”
Sa tao ang solusyon.
Sa empleyado nyo ang solusyon.
Sa customers nyo ang solusyon.
Sa atin ang solusyon.
You can help you managers, supervisors, team leaders discover, magnify, and connect the best in your people and everything around them.
The good news: hindi ito pangarap lang. Ginagawa na ito sa iba’t ibang panig ng daigdig.
The better news: Organizations around the world offer their tools and strategies for us to use.
Marami kasing magagandang pagbabago sa daigdig. At kung itutuon natin ang ating pansin sa mga magagandang pagbabagong ito, mabilis tayong makakaabante.
Appreciative leaders are positive revolutionaries.
Bakit nga ba mas magandang alternative ang appreciative leadership sa traditional problem-solving approach?
Sa problem solving approach,ang mga empleyado ay kasama sa problema. At madalas, sila ang tinuturong problema na kailangan malutas ng isang supervisor o manager.
Ang appreciative leadership ay inclusive. You can co-create your future. Appreciative leaders ask, ” Who else needs to be in this discussion? How can we engage all of our stakeholders? Whose voice has not been heard? What we all can do together?
Ang appreciative leadership ay inquiry-based. Human organizations and communities grow in the direction of what they study. Appreciative leaders embed values in the questions they ask. They focus learning and development on what the organization or the community wants to be.
During your leadership development program, participants will be guided through strengths-based approach to leading.
Appreciative leadership helps us see clearly the best of people, processes, organizations, and communities. Para sa akin, ang pinakamahuhusay na tao ay yung hinahanap kung ano ang maganda at tama sa iyo.
Sa maraming empleyado, ang trabaho ay trabaho lang. Kayod lang nang kayod upang umasenso.
Ang appreciative leader, tutulungan ka magningning. Ipapaalala nya sayo kung bakit ka nga ba gumigising tuwing umaga. Why? Because appreciative leaders have a bias for strengths and help otehrs discover and magnify, yes magnify!, your inherent potentials.
As I write those lines above, I remembered this quote from Peter Drucker,
” The task of leadership is to align strengths in such a way that weaknesses are irrelevant.”
You appreciative leader will help you make your weaknesses irrelevant.
Appreciative leadership inspires hope. It is said that without vision, a nation will perish. Appreciative leaders inspire hope that the vision will be realized. Without hope, there will be no enthusiasm, no energy, no commitment, and no persistence. An appreciative leader is a dealer of hope.
Connect rather than impress. The shortest distance between two persons is connection. A person who always aims for impression is insecure. And maybe you are. You cannot erase insecurity by showing off. A show off is deemed selfish. Everyone will smell you. The wiser ones will tolerate you to a certain extent. Others will drive…
Help your people achieve their career goals. If they don’t have career plans (most people have dreams but don’t know how to get there), show them how to chart goals and motivate them to act on them. Provide them opportunities to grow. Some leaders stall the career growth of their employees. Yes, you heard it…
Everyone wants you to fit in. Everyone wants you to mold yourself into a desired image. The fastest way to please everyone, the easiest way to connect with everyone, is to follow what everyone desires. You must fit it. Wrong. Everyone in your church does not think like everyone in your workplace. Everyone of your…
There are people who expect me to raise their self-esteem when they attend my speaking seminars. They are overestimating my ability.
I cannot do that for them.
Keep your eyes on the future. And keep your hands recording what you see. Because you’ll need them to make sense of the world you are in. In A good day for the backlist, Seth Godin highlights the importance of having the ability to revisit your records. I tried his search box and I was…
That’s the one question that matter the most to your customer.
Your presentation must be able to answer that question concisely and convincingly.
