a book written by 20 leading authorities who share their insights and strategies
for discovering opportunity, prosperity and peace, in a world of constant change.
We are living in "interesting times" and these interesting times
have brought about a major shift in the values and priorities of today's work force.
The unrest in the world and the uncertainty of job security have caused many employees
to re-assess their dedication to their jobs. In the chapter on
The Power of a Vision ... A Leader's Journey, Barbara
Mintzer discusses two leadership styles that motivate today’s ambivalent employees to
buy into the corporate vision. These two styles, used during different stages of
organizational change, are the visionary and the coach.
The visionary has the challenge of formulating and
articulating a corporate vision that employees can buy into and work towards.
Barbara explains why it is so important for leaders and employees alike
to have a vision, and presents the very specific, very powerful strategy
of the 15-minute vision meeting to get buy-in from your employees and
make them accountable for the corporate vision.
Once your employees are actively supporting the corporate
vision and working towards making it a reality, coaching is the most effective
way you can sustain employee productivity and effectiveness. This hands-on,
one-of-the team style of management provides a climate that is conducive to keeping
employees motivated and engaged in their work. In this chapter, Barbara discusses the
4 key qualities to effective coaching.
