1. ENRICH YOUR PROFESSIONAL IDENTITY
- A person’s self-image is the initial trigger to learning.
- There are more benefits in developing strengths than correcting weaknesses.
2. MOBILIZE YOUR TEAM
- 70% of high-performers’ results depend on others around them.
- What each person does to allow a system to work differentiates a team from a group.
3. MANAGE PERFORMANCE IN REAL TIME
- Performance is optimal when each team member’s strengths and the team’s mission influence one another.
- Performance is optimal when the boss is seen as an ally, not as a “threat”.
4. ADAPT TO THE CORPORATE ENVIRONMENT
- A manager’s role is defined by his relationships, not his responsibilities.
- A person’s relationship with authority must evolve from subordination to partnership.
5. INCREASE YOUR INFLUENCE
- In order to see from a group perspective, it is necessary to suspend judgment.
- Questions are more effective than answers to stimulate conversation, commitment and action.
6. INNOVATE WITH EFFICIENCY
- One cannot understand complex situations by breaking them apart and analyzing each of their parts individually.
- Complex situations can be understood by recognizing their purpose and their stakeholders’ perspective.
