Are you investing in building your team?

If you were the manager of an NBA basketball team, or any professional sports team, with the best stars in the league, would there be any dilemma or doubt in your mind about the need for a coach? Would you think: “We don’t need to spend time on team strategies and team dynamics, they take away from individual players’ shooting practice or their chance to rest between games? And, if you were winning the playoffs, would you then feel that “We don’t need a coach because we are doing so well“? The answer is No, No and No! No sports manager in his/her right mind would think this way. And, by the way, it is […]

Leadership Tip of the Week

Stop saying “We should”!

People frequently say: “we should”, “we need to”, “we have to” and “we must” when expressing their stand and commitment on important topics.

They say things like: “we should be working more collaboratively”, “we need to improve our process”, and “we must do whatever it takes to achieve our numbers.”

However, the word “Should” is a cover-up for lack of commitment.

“We should do X” sounds like a powerful sentence that conveys commitment… and these words make the people using them feel as if they are being bold, pushing the envelope and challenging the status quo.

However, in reality, these words do the opposite! They keep people in their comfort zone, avoiding new actions, behaviors or change.

People don’t do what they “should”, “need to”, “have to” and/or “must” So, when they use these words it makes no difference in changing anything.

If you want to be courageous and convey a committed and powerful message that will compel you to change, say:

We will!

These words will compel you to put your money where your mouth is!

What others say about working with Gershon Mader & Quantum Performance

Francois Locoh-Donou

I engaged Gershon in to help raise the performance of the EMEA region at Ciena shortly after the acquisition of Nortel’s MEN division.

Our challenge was to integrate two organizations with different cultures and create a positive, cohesive mindset whilst dealing with complex workforce reductions across multiple European countries.

Gershon worked with us for over a year. The first impact of Gershon’s work was on my leadership team.

Gershon, we finished our quarter (very late last night) and I wanted to share with you the good news: we exceeded our plan for the first time in over a year! This is our first breakthrough 🙂

There is no doubt in my mind this comes from a super motivated team executing together, and the Transformation and Breakthrough Session with you was a key step toward this.

Thanks, for all your support!

In taking up my role, I was faced with both a challenge and the opportunity of having a new leadership team… many of my colleagues had not worked together, were located in different parts of the world and were very focused on their individual areas of the business.

After working with Gershon I can say with conviction the team has strengthened considerably – relationships have developed, communications have become more open and, as a result, trust has deepened.
