- When managing up you have to anticipate what that person is afraid of, and help them feel better about it. This will help you with credibility and relationship in the long run.
- Amy’s four step process on change management:
- Acceptance – Accept what has happened to you.
- Empowerment – Come up with a new story that is more empowering.
- Learn the Lessons – Find the lessons from what has happened.
- Explore – Take the opportunity to explore the other endings you can write, think of the new opportunities that are available.
- Individuals and organizations can take advantage of this four step process. When in doubt, go back to this process to help empower yourself within your struggle with change.
- There is always a story that has been running your life. You have to find out what that story is and why you believe it to be true.
- Work smarter and work within your strengths and not your weaknesses.
- If you are a manager, consider hiring people to do things that you cannot do, but ensure to let them do it.
- When working with any high level client, it is important to ensure everyone has a role, and trust them to do just that.
- As a leader, you need to model work-life balance for your employees and hold them to it as well.
