SEASON 2 EPISODE FOUR – Calling Out Unproductive Behaviors
Discussion guide for this episode:
Review of the concepts of Leadership on the Ground (LOTG), as well as In Real Time (IRT), practicing leadership at the speed of business.
What IS unproductive behavior? And how do they significantly impact performance and productivity?
Fact is, we tolerate too much unproductive behavior because we don’t know how to deal with it, or do not have the courage to call it out.
But isn’t the act of calling out unproductive behaviors culturally frowned upon in business today?
Why peer-to-peer accountability, especially in real time, truly matters in an organization.
When you have trust, calling out unproductive behaviors can have a VERY positive impact on a team or in an organization! Because in a trusting environment, you will know that someone calling YOU out means they are trying to make YOU have more impact – to make you better.
When you call out unproductive behaviors, in the right spirit, you re-calibrate the room and foster a more productive environment.
How do you ACTUALLY call out an unproductive behavior, in a way that isn’t negative? Some actual language to use.
It’s not just the LEADER of the meeting that can call unproductive behaviors out. EVERYONE in the meeting should be EMPOWERED to do so.
What happens when you actually achieve this potential?
