It’s human nature that we wish to be heard. Our natural born instinct is to contribute. We naturally seek affirmation that we are of value. Quite often in the work place when a Manager seeks to display those traits, it comes at the cost of someone else being quashed.
When you are a Manager, how do you balance the needs or the organisation with those of your direct reports? And when do your needs get a look in: Reality TVM.
Imagine a workplace where your every move is recorded, every critical conversation you have with your team is taken into the editing room and sensationalised for Reality TV Management... a live channel displayed to the world that has the power to vote you off.
How would this change your day to day conversations? When you have to sit back and watch your actions under the bright lights, would you back yourself and be proud of how you handled it?
Reality TVM is a coaching strategy that breeds respect in the workplace, evicting short term gains for the greater good. You look after those you lead first. You balance the company needs second because you have trust in your staff and their sense of purpose and mastery. Your prosperity and affirmation naturally follows as those in your care support you with conviction.
You're willing to innovate and take risks. You're willing to take responsibility. You're willing to make tough decisions. You're willing to communicate. You're willing to place trust in your staff and offer them autonomy. You aren't the "Officer" and they aren't the "grunts"... they are your team, they are skilled, they are great at what they do. You personally don't always know what's best, but as a team you do!
