There are two types of managers:
This may sound simplistic but I'm sure you have all felt what I mean. In the presence of some people (refrigerators) I feel about as strong an earthworm. In the presence of others (radiators) I feel I could do almost anything.
Refrigerators suck energy out of the system. They make people feel useless, worthless and hopeless. They have all the ideas. No one else has much to offer. They have to be at the centre of everything. In their presence others give up.
Radiators push energy into the system. They make people feel BIG, worthwhile and hopeful. They allow others to suggest ideas. They know everyone has a genius factor and help them find it. In their presence almost anything is possible.
Most managers fit somewhere between these extremes. Tick the characteristics below. The closer you are to 12 ticks the more you radiate. Do the test.
In today's environment you can not afford Refrigerators who make your people feel small. Research (see Quick Links) shows that Radiators can increase productivity by a factor of two.
Refrigerators can be turned into Radiators. It takes time to change their mind sets, a well structured process, measurement and peer-pressure.
Refrigerators can be turned into Radiators by the following Program.
Give me a call if I can help. In the meantime: Think BIG!
