3 3 NMA LeaderLabs Operation Overload Scenario You are the LEADER of a small team of dedicated and overworked employees, who have a plethora of valid excuses why they simply CANNOT take on any additional tasks. Yet your job as LEADER depends on your ability to convince one of these employees to take on a new critical effort thats essential for your company success, without giving up any of his or her other jobs. You will thus need to successfully address the employees concerns, and get him or her to accept the additional task. The LEADER can start with any of his team members, but must decide after a few questions and answers whether or not that team member can be talked into taking on the new task. If not, the LEADER moves on to the next employee until either all team members have turned the LEADER down or he or she has found a willing team member. Each team selects its LEADER and an OBSERVER who does not participate in the discussions but takes notes on the process. The one-on-one discussions between the LEADER and individual team members continue until time (30 minutes) runs out, all members decline or one member accepts the additional task. It is obviously in all team members interest to do their best to counter the LEADERS suggestions and avoid yet more work, so this should be an interesting challenge. The team LEADER will use 3-4 minutes to report on his results including how many members were asked, whether anyone accepted the extra task and what major associated points were made during the discussion. The OBSERVER will then have 2-3 minutes to summarize the process. The facilitator will take the last 5 minutes to comment on the results and to discuss associated leadership lessons. Operation Overload * Theme: Find a Fix S cenario: C hallenge: O perations: R eports: E valuation: * This LL exercise was derived from similar exercises conducted as part of the Dale Carnegie course on The Peoples Side of Process Improvement (PSPI).
