这比你想象的更重要!!

领导者是很忙碌的一群人。

我们需要确保团队(或机构)实现目标并完成使命。除了自己的主要责任之外,我们还需要处理额外的事务,如照顾和激励团队。

每一天都有许多事务等着我们处理:不仅是那些与我们有直接关联的事情,还包括一些与我们没直接关联的事情。有那么多事情要处理,我们往往会非常地忙碌;有些领导者甚至把 “忙碌” 当成荣誉勋章!

It’s more important than you think!

Leaders are a busy lot of people.

We are responsible for getting our team (or organisation) to the goals and making sure the team accomplishes its mission. Apart from our primary objectives, we also have secondary responsibilities, like taking care of and motivating our team, among others.

Each day, many things demand our attention: not only those we’re primarily responsible for but sometimes those we are not directly responsible for. With so many things to deal with, we tend to be very busy most of the time; though some leaders actually wear “busyness” as a badge of honour!

你的思维影响你的行为!

领导力不仅是关于技能,也关于你的思维。

我对领导能力的学习,最初主要是透过观察现实生活中的领导者;但有时候是从小说、故事、电影、或电视剧。我所观察到的领导特质引起了我的共鸣,所以我告诉自己我期望成为像那些我所观察的有效领导者。

但问题是,我试图模仿的领导者似乎都很完美。或许他们其实并不完美,但表面上看来似乎如此。

Your mindset affects your behaviour!

Leadership is not just about skills, it’s also about your mindset.

I learned about leadership, at least initially, mostly by observing leaders in real life and, sometimes, from novels, movies, or television shows. The qualities I observed resonated with me, and I told myself that I’d like to be an effective leader like those I have observed.

The problem, though, was that most of those leaders I sought to imitate often seemed perfect. Perhaps they were not actually perfect, but they do seem that way.

它将影响团队的样貌!

“团队” 这个词对不同的人来说意味着不同的东西。

我与团队领导者及他们的团队协作时,常遇到对 “团队” 有不同的见解。一位领导者可能用这词来代表所有在他之下工作的每一个人,而另一位领导者可能只用这词来代表某些人。

即使在同一个团队里,每个成员也可能对 “团队” 这词有不同的理解;有些甚至与他们的领导者的理解不同。

They affect what your team look like!

The word “Team” means different things to different people.

When I work with team leaders and their teams, I often encounter different notions of what the “team” really is. One team leader may use the word to refer generally to everyone who works under him, while another might refer to a specific group of people.

Even within a team, each member might have a different understanding of what the “team” is; this might even be different from the team leader’s understanding!

它将影响你的领导方式!

领导涉及做决定。

帮助团队朝向目标迈进的过程中,领导者需要做出许多决策。

但从一开始就有一个重要的的决定是领导者必须做出的。这决定将对领导者本身及他的团队有深远的影响。它将影响领导者如何领导、团队如何与他互动、团队的文化、等。

这关乎沟通的清晰度!

你的团队(或机构、教会、甚至个人)的使命让你明确知道方向,影响你的策略,并且和团队目的共同是你做出重要决策的基准。

使命宣言阐明了你的使命,让所有相关的人(领导者、团队成员、合作伙伴、目标受众、顾客、等等)知道你们要成就何事。对你和团队来说,它可以提醒并帮助你不偏离航向。对其他人来说,它显明你们与其他团队或机构的分别。

过去二十多年与许多团队协作的经验中,我常看到的使命宣言,有些太模棱两可,以致完全不能给我有用的信息。有些却太过一般,以致任何团队都能够适用。

这些模棱两可及一般的使命宣言,根本就是毫无用处。

It affects how you lead!

Leadership involves making decisions.

Getting a team to move towards fulfilling its goals involves numerous decisions.

But right from the get-go, there is one important decision that a leader needs to make. This decision will shape the leader and the team in a profound way. It will affect how he or she leads, how the team interact with the leader, the culture of the team, etc.

It’s about communicating clearly!

Your team’s (or organisation, church, and even personal) mission gives clarity to your direction, informs your strategies and, together with your purpose, forms the basis of all your critical decisions.

The mission statement spells out your mission so that stakeholders (the team leader, team members, partners, target audience, customers, etc.) knows what you do. For yourself and your team, it serves as a reminder to help you stay on course. For others, it helps to differentiate you from other teams or organisations.

As I work with teams during the past 20 years, I often come across mission statements that are either so vague that they don’t tell me anything useful, or are so generic that they could just as well be the mission statement of another team!

These vague or generic mission statements are practically useless.
