Rules for Leading #2 - SAVI Performance - Issue #36

SAVI Performance
Good day to everyone who is fighting the good fight. Sometimes you may feel that no one appreciates your effort. You may feel discouraged when others don’t get your back. There are days you might want to give up. Just remember, it’s worth it.
Along your coaching journey, you’ve probably been hurt by someone you’ve trusted.
If so, this ones for you.

#2 - Expose your Neck
This idiom is said to have originated from the practice of stretching out the neck of a turkey to kill and butcher it. The definition reads:
“To bravely say or do something that might be criticized or might turn out to be wrong.”
Most leaders are uncomfortable exposing their most armored and vulnerable parts. Why? Because it hurts like hell.
Your unwillingness to expose your neck to your team is likely what’s holding you back from taking your team to a new level of trust and transparency.
Just remember to call your shot. Tell those you are leading why you are putting it on the line for them. When you do this, it is one of the most powerful ways to build a culture that is others-focused.
  1. Fear - Be vulnerable with what frightens you, makes you nervous or embarrasses you. This will build trust.
  2. Failure - Be honest about your mistakes. This will normalize a culture of improvement over perfection and lead to rapid growth.
  3. Ignorance - “I don’t know.” Three beautiful words for leaders to use. This will encourage participation in the problem solving process and build a true sense of team.
