Tackling Problems The chief executive of a non-profit organization asked me to come to a meeting of her management team to talk about the performance of staff. When I arrived, she ushered me into a conference room. The four other members of the management team were already at the table. We want to tell you whats going on, she said. First, the staff doesnt seem very motivated, said one vice president. I wish they would just do their jobs. Everyones feeling overwhelmed, said another v.p. They dont show any initiative, said another.
Tackling Problems The conversation continued. As they continued to criticize their staff, I picked up a few more clues. The CEO said she was trying to be more democratic in making decisions. A senior v.p. said he hadnt met recently with staff because of his workload. I jotted some notes in my notepad. Management or staff? I wrote. I decided to trust my instincts. Look, heres what I think is going on, I told the management team. I think the problems with your staff begin with you. I am guessing you are not communicating very well. Your meetings dont have clear action items. Your delegations to staff arent clear.
Tackling Problems Change happens in three ways, I said. It can be top down, bottom up, and inside out. In this case, I think the change youre hoping to see in your staff begins with you. I paused. They were looking at me. Can you help us? one said.
