F3 QSource – Disruption – Friday Group

PAX: Coach K, Icebox, Oatmeal, Teasip

QIC: Alright Alright

Goals for Q Source:

  • Get better at embracing conflict for the good of the team.
  • Find new opportunities to lead at work.

Important Notes:

  • Disruption can not begin until the group trusts you
  • Different people require different styles of motivation
  • Sincerity goes a long way towards getting people on board, and you can’t fake love
  • The best way to visualize “a place of advantage” is to think big
  • Disruption can be exciting for the whole group if the picture is painted properly
  • The leader should move first, and “be his own guinea pig”
  • Setting SMART goals is the best way to motivate some people
  • Time spent together in the trenches helps get the buy-in necessary
  • Sometimes institutional leadership asks us to lead people to a place that we don’t necessarily believe in
  • Disruption can begin with small moves
  • Transparency and setting proper expectations are incredibly important throughout the Disruption
  • It is important to block off time to spend with your team and time to spend on your own accomplishing the tasks that you need to accomplish
  • Ask people, especially your spouse, “How can I support you?”
  • Be ready to go to bat for your people at all times, and do not throw them under the bus
  • Observe and learn from bad leaders just as much as you observe and learn from good leaders

Next week we will discuss Language.  Oatmeal has the Q.
