Do you know when to ’empower’ and when to ‘command and control’?

In most organizations, a leader who manages in a command and control style is frowned upon and branded as an uncaring tyrant who doesn’t listen to people and doesn’t empower them. While, people’s negative reaction to a top-down command and control leadership style is understandable and most often legitimate, there are times in which a command and control approach is the most appropriate and effective. In fact, at times it is necessary. Take as an example the new CEO of a large global financial service organization. When he took the helm of his organization, he soon realized that he inherited a bigger mess than he anticipated. The financial performance of the company had been on […]

Leadership Tip of the Week

Be Empowering!

If you want to be a powerful leader “give the credit to others” and “take the blame on yourself”.
Most managers and executives do the opposite: when things go well they take the credit and when things go badly they cover their ass and blame others.

Typically this is because they are overly concerned with their own success, brand, and position. They are insecure, they operate in survival mode, and they are selfish. Ultimately they don’t trust others and/or their own ability to succeed.
But the leaders that people most admire and remember are those who are always focused on empowering, supporting, nurturing and inspiring them, no matter what the circumstances.

There is a saying “there are no bad students only bad teachers”. Well, it takes courage to stake your success to your people’s success and to bet on your people for your success. It takes courage to truly own your people’s success to the degree that you see their failure as your responsibility and their success as your accomplishment.

This mindset shapes a specific set of behaviors. It makes leaders more compassionate, caring and empathetic. They listen more rigorously and generously in order to make a difference. But, it also makes them more relentless, demanding and uncompromising about their people’s performance. This comes from an empowering place of “I will do whatever it takes to NOT let you fail!” This stance requires courage.

Leaders who are oriented around their people’s success often experience an augmented sense of accomplishment and gratification when others succeed around them. And people who work for these leaders tend to be more eager to achieve great things in order to not let their leaders down.

On the other hand, people who feel their leaders care about their own personal success and gain first tend to get angry and resentful. They do their best to succeed but if they fail they take comfort in seeing their leaders fail too. And, this mindset weakens any team environment and undermines high performance.

So if you want to be a powerful leader “give the credit to others” and “take the blame on yourself”.

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.
