THE JLC PROCESS
1. Leadership Through Meetings
FACILITATE QUALITY MEETINGS WITH LEARNING CONVERSATIONS
The best meetings are a series of short focused conversations. Utilize key meeting design processes to create quality meetings that generate a positive investment of time, use resources effectively and create a commitment from all participants.
How successful are your meetings? Are participants engage and committed to the result or complacent, distracted and unconnected? Does the true conversation that will save your organization time and money, take place in the parking lot?
Bring the parking lot meeting inside, by designing and facilitating engaging meetings, through focused conversations.
2. Leadership Motivation
SELF-DRIVEN SUSTAINABLE RESULTS
Change happens every day in organizations across the world. Significant or minor, these new opportunities, business initiatives, or policies shifts, impact how people get their work done. For the changes to be successful, leaders need to engage and generate the commitment of the people who are being asked to change.
How can an organization quickly surface commitment for change and shift behaviors from the old to the new? Successful change occurs, when leaders engage in intentional conversations that develop a clear vision of the current reality and the new vision of the organization. They keep the vision alive by enrolling others and matching their personal vision of success with the organization’s vision. Through focused conversations, leaders design and steward an active environment where teams feel free to surface their thinking, ask questions for clarity and even respectfully voice disagreement.
Change begins on the inside and works its way out.
3. Leadership Through Systems Thinking
THE KEY TO RESULTS IN A HIGHLY INTERDEPENDENT WORLD
In public and private enterprises, leaders increasingly focus on developing two overriding conditions among the people they lead; alignment and engagement. Yet this focus is often at odds with the environment of their organizations, where “alignment” means following instructions and agreeing with management; where “engagement” is encouraged in a need to know atmosphere that keeps employees in the dark about so much of the big picture they often do not know what they are engaging with; and where competition among team members is rewarded at the cost of collaboration- and ironically, results.
The best leaders see the whole picture-and can make connections between and among seemingly disparate events and processes. Seeing the underlying structures that drive our behavior and the interconnections in our organization is critical to their success. Uncover new approaches to your current team challenges, and acquire a broader perspective that will enable you to develop the professional relationships that will lead towards sustainable change.
